The excursion was very well organized, we were able to visit the Alhambra and the city of Granada but in a very busy and very rich way of information, places to see and visit and photographic records and the friendliness of the two guides and availability to assist us was exemplary. The trip from Malaga was safe and comfortable. If I had to make the trip again, I would have done it without any problems, we enjoyed it very much!

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.

As a first time solo traveler to Europe, I felt this trip has great value. I enjoyed my experience and will book again.

This was an amazing experience, you get a lot for the price of the tour and it was absolutely worth it.

Punctual, prepared and helpful guide, well organized tour
