It was a very interesting tour with a well informed and pleasant guide.
I especially enjoyed seeing the gardens that I had read so much about. They were splendid!

My experience with The guide who is name is Sow was very interesting as he had great knowledge of the Alhambra, the gardens and the Nazrid Palace. He could read the writing on the wall of the Alhambra because he could speak fluent Arabic!
Altogether it was a very informative and interesting day.

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.

Frustratingly for me, for whom this was a very special trip, on the day we arrived in Granada the Alhambra closed, including my 'bucket list' place, Los Jardines del Generalife.
However, in the scheme of things, that is minor compared with the devastation to the Spanish trouist industry which seems to be staffed by exceptionally kind people who tolerated our attempts at their language with delight and charm.

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.

We were very disappointed because we were promptly at our tour meeting place at 10 minutes to 9:00 a.m. as requested by the tour operator, IBE. The tour guide waited for ALL the ticket holders to arrive and did not start the tour until 9:30 a.m. We were freezing cold in the dark, and it ruined our tour. Tours should start on time, and if ticket holders are not on time, the tour should leave with the people who ARE on time. We also felt that Spanish speakers got 75% of the tour, and English speakers got only 25% of the tour.

Our tour guide was lovely and charismatic, and the sites themselves are gorgeous and well worth a visit. The Alhambra, Generalife and Nasrid Palaces are a must for every Granada visit.

I purchased this tour when tickets were sold out online for individual/independent visits so it was a means to an end - it was a little frustrating to battle crowds and other tour groups for good photo spots and to get through the sites (not our guides fault!) so if I had the option of a self guided tour with audio guide, I would do that next time. We like to walk and explore and guided tours (especially in busy sites like this) can make that difficult as you keep pace with many others and move at the speed of the group. That said, it is ideal and convenient if you like to walk at a relaxed pace and don’t dwell to long / want to explore at your leisure.

Booked the English tour. Our guide Beatrice was brilliant, she paced the tour well, gave us lots of great information - including a lot of extra things that she knew from some of the work she has done with Alhambra. I don't think it was a particularly busy day but there were still lots of people and she navigated us skillfully through the various parts - allowing time for photos and questions. We had a short break in the middle which was appreciated and got to the main palaces in time for our entrance.

I can't recommend the tour more highly. The mikes worked well ( a few occasional blips). Beatrice English pronunciation and accent were excellent which made listening to her very easy.

We booked this tour, because other tickets were not available. Alhambra was not really impressive. We enjoyed the alcazar from Seville more. The tour is in Spanish and english. Tour guide spoke good English, but lacked a bit of enthousiasm.

For me the Alhambra was a must see while visiting Spain but this tour truly disappointed me. 1) I booked an english tour but we ended-up in a bilingual tour (english/spanish). This wasted our time as we had to listen to both languages, and the english version always seemed to be an abbreviation. 2) Group organisation at the beginning was terrible, our tour left 1/2 hour late but did not last a 1/2 hour longer !!! 3) The headsets were terrible, cut in and out and were very crackly. 4) Although our guide was very knowledgeable, she literally just went through the motions of giving the tour, almost as if it was a recording. We flew through the complex, and did not have time to appreciate what we were looking at. We regret spending the extra money for the guided tour.

So, we are traveling through Spain, one of my must-see items is to visit La Alhambra in Granada.

I booked tickets through Viator, receive a paid & confirmed notification. We drive down from Cartagena, book accommodations just to see La Alhambra before departing for Costa Del Sol.

I wake up this morning to a text message cancelling our tour and a telephone and email to contact for options. I called, no answer. I emailed, no response. I find an email sent yesterday, just reading today as I was on the road yesterday...saying in big block letters TOUR NOT CONFIRMED and cancelling our tour. Uh, yes, it was confirmed!

I have traveled quite a bit, usually have success with Viator, but this is now the second disappointment (June 2018, Lima, Peru, tour bus never arrived!)

Dear LEF61, we think that you are wrong with the agency, because we are not Viator, and we did not sent an email in big block letters tour not confirmed and cancelling the tour. Many thanks, Regards.
