This was the best tour I've ever been on. Our guide, Sergio was exceptional. His knowledge of the Alhambra was incredible. He was able to field all questions and kept up enthralled. There is allot of walking and the ground is uneven. I'm 69 but had no trouble, I do have a trainer and was averaging 20,000 steps a day on fit bit. There are plenty of places to get out of the sun and water for purchase at the gift shop but I took my own bottle. After the Alhambra we did the Granada Hammam. Couldn't believe what a fabulous experience that was. Decor much like the Alhambra with replicated tiles. There are several pools of varying degrees, a hot sauna and then a 15 minute massage, where Javiar rubbed me with pomegranate oil. Wish the massage was longer but for 19 what can your expect. I'd recommend to everyone visiting the Alhambra. The ice pool was very healing to our feet. They also had lovely warm tea as you relaxed.

Collected from our beautiful hotel and taken to this amazing Alhambra, high in the Sierra Navada mountains. Beautiful, spacious gardens, magnificent views and a passionate knowledgable guide transporting us through history. The Grand Hannam was fantastic; historical, destressing and a must see.

All in all, a fantastic tour with a funny, knowledgeable guide named Gustavo. The weather was very hot, but he managed to lead us around in the shade as much as possible. The only glitch was with our visit to the Hammam which was by appointment. Everybody seemed to have a different idea about our 'tickets'. We were expecting our visit to be quite soon after our Alhambra tour which wrapped up around 1:30. We had to go back to the ticket office, where the young woman who picked us up told us she had misunderstood and gave us back our original voucher and told us our visit was at 6 pm. It was very hot. We walked down from the Alhambra into the Plaza Nueva, had some lunch and decided we were not going to hang around until 6 pm, so we decided not to do this portion.

Alhambra is an amazing site. Anyone that visits Granada should have the Alhambra on their list to see. On a negative note, our tour guide seemed annoyed to be there and even more annoyed when anyone asked any questions. Also, we missed the second half of our tour the baths because no directions were given to meet and/or be transported to the baths.

In the end, I think I would have just preferred the Alhambra tour. The guide was excellent, and I enjoyed listening to the tour in both English and Spanish. The Alhambra and Generalife Gardens are, of course, incredible. Walking with a guide maximized the most of every moment with a chance to hear the history while walking from one part of the site to another. The break between the Alhambra bit and the Hammam, for me, was quite long--I had plenty of time to explore more after the guided tour ended. The Hammam, though, was not a win for me. I thought it would be different from what it was. I didn't have the right clothes to make it work, and, in the end, I just ghosted without actually taking my turn in the Hammam. But, if you do like Hammam and it would be especially nice in colder weather!, the combination of both parts fills the day nicely, but still leaves plenty of time in between to do other things as well.

Lynne L

This tour was mis represented to us. We were told it was an 8 hour tour at 135 sounded expensive but for 8 hours we thought it was okay. We asked the operator about lunch and she said it was not included but the tour guide would probably take us somewhere to have lunch. It was just under a 3 hour tour of the Alhambra until 1 pm the we were supposed to wait until 6 pm for our Arab bath experience. This would have been a 2.5 hour drive back to Ronda at 7.39 pm in the dark having left at 6 am to get to Granada. We were expecting a lot more than being left to our own devices in Granada for 5 hours. We did manage to negotiate with the bath house to change it to a 4 pm booking so at least we were heading back at 6.30. The operator was ill informed about what was involved in the tour and she probably did not lie but somehow interpreted the tour as 8 hours. We felt mis led and I am now very hesitant to use viator again as you obviously outsource everything and are not well informed on what you are selling.

Fantastic to be there before the crowds, it gives the place a different feel and enables you to experience the tranquility and holiness of the place. Enjoyed seeing the inside of the church. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and cheerful. An unexpected bonus for us was all the information proved on the sights of Barcellona as we left.

The staff were very helpful and obliging. Our guide Fernando was excellent, both in his presentation of the information and his personal observations. Given the number of people walking through Alhambra, Fernando made sure we all had an opportunity to see the best on offer. A visit to hammam a must!

We had a delayed flight and had to miss our scheduled time for the tour. They were accommodating and able to get us into a later tour. We enjoyed the visit to the Alhambra, but our guide was a little monotone. We didn't get any instructions for how to arrive at the Granada Hammam, but once we called, they cleared that up. The Hammam was wonderful, especially after a hot day touring the Alhambra... wish we had booked massages. Next time we'll do that.

Alhambra Tour was rushed and not well organized. From pick up point we had to walk a long way to the office to take the bus to Alhambra. There we waited for 15 min to get headphones and be assigned to a guide. Our group entrance hour was at 11 so we had an hour to kill and we had been taken to another museum. Too much walking back and forth for older people uphill.

Absolute disgrace. Late panicking pick up, taken to the visitors centre as cattle and told to wait for an English speaking guide. Good local guide took us around. No pick up ready when we finished our tour and was told we had to wait at least a half an hour or more for others to finish their tour. As for the hamman, a joke. No help from any of your suppliers and they did not have any details of what we had paid for and when was my appointment. Only a 15 minute massage and busy haman/arab baths. will write to others not to bother going through you, as you are too expensive, no service what soever locally. It is a disgrace what you offer.

This tour is organised locally by Granavision. For reasons that were not clear our all day tour was rescheduled to the following day in the afternoon for the Alhambra visit. That was fine however they seem to have forgotten the Hammam baths part. This required some sorting our with the help of the hotel. However we did get our tours and even if done separately they are definitely worth doing. Remember your bathing costume for the baths! Our guide for the Alhambra tour was excellent and spoke very good English and also French. Recommended.
