Our tour guide Juan Cobo was brilliant, really interesting and humorous. 3hrs flew by despite the heat. Great time to visit as the visitors numbers are so low due to COVID. Great photo opportunities due to lack of visitors. Thanks Juan.

Responded 19 Mar 2020
Dear customer, We are very sorry that the Alhambra closed on the day you had the visit. These are situations that we cannot control and we cannot manage or decide. On the same day we asked your agency to make a refund of your booking. We hope you can visit the Alhambra another time and give us the opportunity to visit it with you.
