Alba was our guide of Alhambra. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history, culture, religion, and philosophies of the palaces. She understands them holistically and with great reverence, and provided a very interesting and informative tour. We learned a lot from her!

Wonderful experience
On June 8, we visited Alhambra and Nasrid Palaces with our guide Antonio. It was the second time for my husband and I, and the first for our daughters, 24 and 29 years old, visiting the Alhambra and Nasrid. We decided on a private tour, because the first time we were a large group, on a fast track, and you need time to appreciate these places. Antonio was wonderful. He has a Master in History and it shows. The visual part was accomplished via a tablet. There he showed us photos of how things were during the Alhambra splendor years, as we were in the different rooms of the palace. He gave us oil samples to touch and smell, as the ones prepared in that time. Then gave us an “ empanada” to eat, as the ones prepared at that time. Certainly it was a wonderful experience through the senses, without skipping any information and with a very good guide. Highly recommended.

Alhambra guided Tour
May 2019 • Couples
Our guide in May was great. His name is Carlos S. His knowledge was extensive as he had studied the Moorish period of control of Spain while he was in college. Its a long 4 hours and so much information that you can easily be overwhelmed. There are so many things that you want to photograph, its hard to choose. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, though we were exhausted but the time it was over. The only drawback was that our guide did the tough in two languages, Spanish and English, so that took extra time for him to say everything twice.

Alhambra and Nasrid Palaces
We had a great experience with Sergio! His knowledge of the Nasrid Palaces and the Alhambra was beyond what we expected. What made Sergio even more impressive was his ability to bring and energy and passion to the experience- even though he’s likely done the same tour hundreds of times! If you’re visiting the Alhambra, I’d only do it with Sergio!

Fantastic tour of the amazing Alhambra
Jun 2019 • Couples
Our tour of the Alhambra was well organized and communication was good. There was a slight change in the tour start time (moved back one hour) which we did not mind since we got a extra hour of sleep after a late night.
The Alhambra, Palaces and General Life gardens are were amazing. We would have enjoyed them even without a tour guide, but our tour guide Antonio made the experience so much better. Antonio gave us detailed information on the history of the Alhambra and presented the information in an entertaining manner. Antonio’s English was very good. He invited questions and answered all of them. The through the senses aspect he provides was and added bonus as we smelled, touched and tasted historical elements associated with Granada and Alhambra. We highly recommend Antonio and the tour. It was highlight among so many highlights of our trip to Spain.
