We really liked this activity. Enrique drove the 5 of us in an air conditioned van to Granada giving us the opportunity to ask questions about Andalucia, the history but also things like how the draught affected life. Once at the Ahambra, we enjoyed a 3+ hours tour by JJ, a passionate and knowledgeable person who adapted the tour to our needs. Everything was very well organized. We loved it.

Great hike made even better by the diverse and very interesting group. A few sections require holding onto grips to get past rocks, also a little crawling. Wonderful views. We felt very safe with our guides. Highly recommend.

This was a fun and energizing hike with terrific views. A nice compliment to walking around the city. Julio and Marcelo are good guides.

Our guide Hose was very friendly and informative. We had a wonderful time because of him.

Very well planned day out and comfortable travelling.
