Unfortunately it didn't work out with the time for whatever reason. The meeting point should be described a little better. But after 1.5 hours of waiting everything worked great. A great guide who could tell a lot. I was here 34 years ago, a lot has changed, so it was particularly interesting for me to see everything again. Wasn't my last visit here! You can't do Granada without the Alhambra.
