This was a great tour. We met easily at the designated site. The group wasn’t too large. Our guide Marta was friendly and knowledgeable. She had some great anecdotes and lots of information. She kept us moving but I never felt rushed or that I didn’t have time to look at things and take photos.

Nina was a great guide who shared her vast knowledge of the palace and its history with our group of 10. She kept us together, answered any questions we had, and gave insight into the comings and goings of palace life. She pointed out special nuances to look for and explained their meanings. She also threw in some of the palace drama and added some humor as well. Our group of 10 started out as individuals and ended up as a collective group. Would definitely recommend this tour if you are planning on visiting Alhambra.
