What an experience! This tour was one of the key highlights of our time in Spain. While we enjoy the city, we also love nature and the ride and views were nothing short of amazing. We were able to see the peaks of Sierra Nevada from up close, immerse ourselves in the quiet outdoors, ride through the winding city and see the beautiful Alhambra from another viewpoint. Mike and Jose were also wonderful guides and took care of the group really well. We were pleasantly surprised that Mike and Jose put together a photo video so quickly and we could revisit our experience anytime we wanted after the tour. I highly encourage anyone to join this tour! You won't be disappointed.

We spent the day with Harry and another couple on this excursion. Everything went very well: it was too windy and snowy to climb to the top so Harry guided us to another place for a 4 hour hike in the mountains among oaks, pines, sheep and cows. The landscapes were magnificent and the duration of the walk perfect for us. The size of the group were also pleasant to enjoy nature quietly. I recommend this excursion and Harry if you want to enjoy nature from Granada and recharge your batteries a bit.

This bike ride was the highlight of our trip! Maria and Jose were excellent guides, and had everything we needed for the ride. We really appreciated the picture collage at the end too. While you have to be fairly comfortable on a bike, the ride was not difficult given the e-bike power.

driver / guide was really nice . hard work up the slooes but great fun. everything went well.

Henry is an amazing guide. Was able to adapt our plan for the weather!
