What people are saying about Granada, Spain

A unique experience and a highly recommended adventure. We made a beautiful route through the north of the Granada Geopark. The car is a comfortable 4x4 and we were 6 people including the driver. We had a super nice group and they also understood so it was great for us to learn even more. The delivery of Goyo Garrido Adventures is incredible, they explain everything to you and they also gave us a snack at one of the stops. What more could you want? And as if that were not enough, the route lasted longer than planned and we were able to enjoy it even more. Of 10 and totally recommendable, surely we will do something else with them.

Excellent tour you were shown the press room changing rooms hospitality area and most importantly for me the stand and pitch the tour guide took time to talk to me in English which was nice for him to do would highly recommend doing this tour

I appreciate the explanation and every detail so interesting since if we had not made the tour with the guide we would not understand much and we would only see the building.

Saw Alhambra at night with our tour guide Ava. It’s a different experience seeing it lit up at night, and having a tour guide along definitely enhanced what we were seeing.

Fantastic!

We had a great guide, not only knew how to answer all our questions, but also his way of transmitting the story made it very enjoyable.
