Nice, extensive tour. I had chosen a good day, there were few tourists overall and I was the only guest on my tour, so I even had an individual tour. The young lady was an excellent guide. She told very informative and interesting the whole time. It wasn't boring for a moment, on the contrary, very entertaining. In addition, tips on what else you could do or should have seen in the area. I had an all-round successful day. Thank you again for that

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!

Emilio has been a great guide. The guided tour is highly recommended. Emilio's explanations have been most clear and entertaining.

Miguel was easily the best guide someone could hope for. Extremely knowledgeable, kind, and funny. Highly reccomended!
