We had a great tour! Carmen was very informative and sweet. Everything was taken care of from pickup in the morning, a break 1 1/2 hours into the trip, our tickets and tour guides were there for us at the Alhambra, they took us for a little tour of Granada also and showed us some places for lunch before the ride back to Seville. The Alhambra is impressive, imagine standing in the same room where Queen Isabella met with Christopher Columbus, and then look at the incredible beauty of the room. The gardens and fountains are stunning as is the view from the Alhambra. Highly recommend the trip and with the tour you don't have to worry being sure you have tickets to get in (they have about 8,000 people tour per day).Reviewed by: John C. O, April 2014
Although it looks like a long old day in actual fact the time races by as this is such a well organised and interesting trip.Reviewed by: GRAHAM A, March 2014
The 15-seater van picked us up promptly at 6:25 a.m. close to our hotel. We had a rest stop after 1.5 hours. We got straight into the Alhambra. Three of us on the bus needed an English-speaking guide. There were only a few English speakers and a few French speakers at the Alhambra that day, so we three were combined with three French speakers from another tour, and our one excellent guide, Oskar, repeated everything in both languages to the six of us. After the 3-3.5 hour tour our van driver took us into downtown Granada where he left us off for about 1.5 hours to get lunch and have a look around. He picked us up again around 3:45 and we were back to our hotel by about 7:30 p.m.
We were very satisfied with this tour. We had heard on some forums that 6 hours on the bus for a 3 hour tour doesn't make for a pleasant day, but we enjoyed the bus ride, saw a lot of the Spanish countryside, and simply didn't have time to stay overnight in Granada. We were also glad that our ticket into the Alhambra was assured, and we appreciated such a knowledgeable and pleasant guide.
Beautiful trip despite the rainy weather. Only thing that would make it better if there is more time to explore the main city.Reviewed by: Vincent H, January 2014
WE ARE A FAMILY OF 2 TEENAGE CHILDREN WHO VISITED SPAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME. WE ARE SATISFIED WITH THIS DAY TOUR. THE PICK UP WAS PUNCTUAL AND THE BUS GUIDE TRIED HER BEST TO GIVE US INFORMATION ABOUT SPAIN, THE REGION AND GRANADA. HER ENGLISH IS GOOD BUT SOMETIMES DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.HER SPANISH ACCENT. OUR ALHAMBRA GUIDE COMMENTARIES WERE MORE EASILY UNDERSTOOD. RECOMMENDATIONS: 1. SOME 15-20 MINUTES SHOULD BE GIVEN TO BUY SOUVENIRS (WE THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO STOP AT THE SOUVENIR SHOP BUT HAD TO GET ON THE BUS ALMIOST IMMEDIATELY EXITING THE ALHAMBRA.) 2. A BIT MORE TIME AFTER LUNCH OUGHT TO BE PROVIDED TO LOOK AROUND THE TOWN. (WE DID NOT HAVE TIME BECAUSE THE RESTAURANT WHERE THE BUS GUIDE TOOK US TO EAT WAS RATHER SLOW.) 3. LEAFLETS ON GRANADA AND ALHAMBRA WILL HELP THOSE WHO ARE NOT SO FLUENT IN ENGLISH SO THAT THEY CAN READ BY THEMSELVES.Reviewed by: Nopadol G, January 2014
