Hamdi was our tour guide and he gave us an excellent tour of the Alhambra and many other monuments. His knowledge is very well rounded on Andalusian history and history in general. A very pleasant experience and he was kind enough to give us a number of gifts, which we are very thankful for. Hamdi was very interactive with us while giving us the tour and he was also very flexible in the timings. A perfect tour with nothing to complain about. Certainly not our last tour here and hoping others get to live this experience.
