Is a MUST go attraction. The view there is stunning and the properties there are amazing. We are lucky to have Gosia as our guide. She is very good, friendly and professional. She provides us very details information, with all the background and history. Also, her time management is good, and we are able to walk thought the whole attraction without wasting any minute. She absolutely enhanced our visit, overall was a very good experience.

The Alhambra is a bucket list visit - and I think it needs an expert guide to bring it to life. Alba did just that and so much more. Over the course of our four hour visit (you need at least that much time) she provided an endless stream of the historical narrative while pointing out essential details. She brought us all to a new level of understanding of this incredible place - if you can get her as your guide, consider yourself lucky

We had a great day with Carlos! It was a wonderful experience to see what our ancestors built. He explained everything really well and provided us with well rounded insights into the history of the Al Hambra. Thanks Carlos!

Great trip - packed a lot in a long day! The Alhambra tour was terrific - Carlos Fuentes was an excellent guide for our group. And Petra was a great overall guide.

Visiting Alhambra with a guide as knowledgeable and patient as Gosia will easily be one of your highlights when visiting Granada.
