Amazing!!! it was a wonderful location with an intimate atmosphere, the service was excellent, beautiful art from an artist on display, and the performance was captivating. I would really recommend it.

Fernando was very knowledgeable at the park and the city. This tour had a nice amount of walking and the hanging houses were beautiful. Would definitely recommend wearing outdoor gear.

Having tickets in hand rather than waiting in line was brilliant! Well worth the extra few euros.

The guide was well-prepared and gave an enjoyable guide through the town.

Excellent flamenco singing and dancing. Great experience.
