Enrique is a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable. Answered questions readily. Made the visit special
We appreciated the tour. The guide had a lot of knowledge and knew how to explain the things.
The Alhambra is quite wonderful and we enjoyed our guided visit enormously. The headset arrangement works really well, enabling y...ou to wander at will while still hearing the guide's info. Our guide, Marco, was Italian, and informed, amusing and not overloaded with dry facts. He had a partifcularly good way of repeating bits of info in a very low key way, that enabled you to really take in what he was saying. The only things that happened that were 'wrong' were that we were not picked up from where we were staying, which we thought we had booked, and the tour met an hour earlien than we had booked. It was OK because we rang the night before to check everything, and were told of these two changes. However, it was a bit of a scramble to get ourselves down into the centre of town quite early (for 8.45am) from the Albaycin district, having only arrived after a long day of travelling the night before. How? Where? etc - but we managed and the tour was great.
