What people are saying about Granada Cathedral

I really enjoyed the tour as a whole since he was so informative and was able to answer all of our questions. He did walk a bit fast which I enjoyed, but my parents didn’t love that. I would have liked for him to point out good spots to take pictures since he would move quickly. The downside was the tour was in Spanish and English, so part of the time we were bored as well as the others while we listened. Overall, it was a great tour, and the tapas place was delicious!!!!

Very nice and interesting tour. Thanks to Alfredo, our guide, who has passionate us with an engaging and clear exposure; very prepared he was able to give us both an artistic and historical vision of one of the most beautiful sites in Spain. However, being the 31st of December and having been late on the tour, due to the high number of visitors, it was not possible stop for an aperitif with tapas.

The visit on Saturday 7 at 9:30 was well worth it. The guide who accompanied us from 10. Very professional and very good all his explanations. A very nice group and a highly recommended visit
