    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. The tour is much recommended to others and especially with the guide Hamdi. أفضل ارشاد سياحي للسياح العرب أو المسلمين، المرشد حمدي خلوق و مثقف بدرجة عالية و عيشنا تاريخ الأندلس الجميل في غرناطة. انصح الكل فيه.

Yocin, a Spaniard from Belgium, gave us a lot of knowledge and tips about Granada. The walk through the two districts took place in the evening hours and despite a few tourists (not nearly as many due to Covid) he kept showing us special places and viewpoints where we were almost alone. Thank you very much for an unforgettable experience! The tour was in very understandable English, with mask and distance :) Regina & Beate

All phenomenal. Javier very nice. It is a visit with many ups and downs but Javier makes many stops for us to drink and rest a bit. Everything is great. I recommend it 100%.

I did the route with David and it is worth taking the walk with him. It explains everything very well and in a very entertaining way.
