Excellent 2-hour tour. As first-time use we all felt safe (our guides took the necessary time to train all of us in the use of the Segways). Guides took several pictures during our tour and even a quick video, stopping at several landmarks sharing interesting facts about Granada. A fun and different way of visiting Granada!

Great hike made even better by the diverse and very interesting group. A few sections require holding onto grips to get past rocks, also a little crawling. Wonderful views. We felt very safe with our guides. Highly recommend.

This was a fun and energizing hike with terrific views. A nice compliment to walking around the city. Julio and Marcelo are good guides.

Saw the old and interesting bits of Granada, thank you.

Very well planned day out and comfortable travelling.
