Really good. But it was not clear where to meet the guide or how the guided could be recognized and had to call for details once arrived at the meeting point. Natalia was nice and answered the questions. What I didn’t like was that it was a combined Spanish and English tour. Should have been mentioned from the beginning

When we bought our ticket to the Alhambra, we thought we were going to go inside the palace. We didn't do enough research to realize the tour was only the outside of the Alhambra and the gardens. That was dissapointing for us, but we still enjoyed what we saw.

The Alhambra was breathtaking. Our guide (Natasha) was excellent. She provided a very informative and good humoured tour, answering all questions. At several intervals she invited the group to answer questions of her own about the possible use or identify of several objects and artefacts. We were given adequate time to take photographs at various points during the tour. A memorable experience enhanced by first class tour guide.
