The actual tour into Granad was wonderful. We strolled through Generalife and the interior of the palace, there was enough time to appreciate what we were seeing. The information from our local was informative without being too much.
However, the pick up schedule really needs to be rethought. We were the first to be picked up at Estepona McDonald's at 5:30 AM. By ther time we had wound throufgh many side streets to pick others up at their hotels it was 3 hours later that we finally left Malaga - a mere 45 minute commute away. It was then 10:30 before we were deposited at the end of the tour again at McDonalds . A few other central pick up spots would have made a great difference to the length of the day.Reviewed by: Wendy N, November 2013
Was a fantastic tour. The guide was very informative, providing history and little stories. As a group our guide was very good at giving us time to enjoy the palace and gardens and ask questions. We did not feel like we were being herded through.Reviewed by: Sandra P, October 2013
Well worth doing. The Alhambra Palace and the Generalife Gardens are beautiful. The Palace would be even better if at least some of the rooms were furnished to show what they would have looked like. Watch out for pick-pockets in the Albaycin, though - one of our group was targeted, but we managed to catch the offenders!Reviewed by: Shane E, October 2013
Great tour, The Alhambra Palace is a wonderful site and worth the trip alone. It was raining so our walking tour of the city itself was turned into a drive and was not as much fun but still worth the money.Reviewed by: thetraveler67, USA, January 2013
An absolutley perfect trip to Granada! Tour picked us up in Marbella on time and we made rest stops. After arriving at Granada we were greeted by a wonderful tour guide who was the nicest sweetest person. Had a blast and this unesco site should be on everyone;s agenda while visiting Spain!Reviewed by: RICHARD R, October 2012
There really are not words to describe the magnitude of this site! We can well understand why it is a World Heritage Site. They are very well organized to handle the 7800 plus visitors that they receive on a daily basis. We will always remember our trip to Granada and cherish it.Reviewed by: scottsdalegma, June 2012
great experience. Learned alot of history and great tour guides!Reviewed by: Diana L K, May 2012
The guide at the Alhambra was passionate about his job and truly provided us with a wonderful tour.
The guide for the Julie tour company spoke in 4 different languages which was amazing but also took a bit of focus because he had lots of information.
The Julie Tour company did not contact us to tell we where to meet and what time to meet. We had to chase down the information plus the person did not speak English well. There was a big communication issue with them.
Amazing tour and informative guide...Reviewed by: Sabyasachi G, United Kingdom, April 2012
Excellent guide with great commentaries of the Alhambra and surroundings. Each of us was given a set of earphones and we are able to hear her commentary and instruction. There was ample time to wander on our own since we did not subscribe to lunch.Reviewed by: KAMARIAH O, November 2011
