    We stood outside in very cold weather from before 9.30pm which was our pick up time at the Eurostar Hotel in Gran Via; the bus arrived just before 10pm. There must be a better way to co ordinate a pick up. And the booking site could give live updates regarding progress if the bus, The flamenco performance was brilliant. The advertised program was a tour of the Albaicin usually after the show. All that was offered was a bus ride up to the St Nicholas viewsite to take night photos of the Alhambra and a brief explanation about the relatively new and only mosque in Granada. That’s not a tour, it’s a photo op and a four minute talk on the same site. You could improve your logistics and accuracy
