This was the most fantastic tour I’ve ever had! Very personable driver who spoke fluent English was waiting for me at cruise terminal and whisked me away to Alhambra where I met my guide who was fluent in Arabic as well as English, and very knowledgeable in Islamic culture and history, which enabled him to provide detailed explanations of the Alhambra’s unique design, artwork and symbolism throughout the palaces. Tour time also allowed me to explore Granada’s old town before being returned to ship. I highly recommend.

We had an amazing time on our 2 hour Segway tour. Our teenagers thought it was the best part of our 2 week trip! George is really nice and so fun. Very accommodating to what we were wanting and gave us different information from other tours. Stories were fun for the teenagers. Segways were really easy to use and although we like to walk, we covered much more of ground we would have without the segways.

Gosia was a fantastic guide, extremely knowledgeable about the site's history and the wider regional context. Throughout the tour, she provided detailed political, architectural, artistic and historic context that really brought the palace to life and made the tour so much more interesting than just wandering around on my own. Incredible experience!

We had the private tour of the Alhambra with Palaces. Our guide Gosia was remarkable. She was so knowledgeable about the history, architecture, as well as providing fun and intriguing stories. She made the visit a 10+. We cannot recommend our experience or our guide strongly enough!

This Segway tour is by far the best way to see the wonderful city of Granada. Our guide Alberto was really nice and patiently showed us how to use them before launching on the amazing tour through the magical streets of Granada
