Wonderful introduction to Granada

Took the ‚ÄúEssential Granada‚ÄĚ tour this morning with Borja and it was great. He was extremely knowledgeable about the multicultural history of the city. Learned lots of interesting facts – from the role food played in politics to the effect construction around the Alhambra had on the health of the city. Could have listened to him all day. Highly recommend.


Lovely Tour! <3

Just loved the tour! It was really relaxed and well planned with amazing viewpoints that are not crowded with tourists. Our tour guide Pedro was amazing! He was cordial, friendly with a great sense of humor ^_^ If you have less than two days in Granada, this walking is a must! My rating? 11 on the scale of 10!!!! ūüôā

Great tour!

We did the free walking tour with guide Nacho. The guide told us a lot, both about the history of the city as about its buildings. He also knew a lot curious facts and stories. The guide was also funny and very helpful. Great experience!
