Hicimos la visita con otra pareja (en total 4 personas) con los guías que hay a la entrada de CEFAPIT. Desafortunadamente el peor guía que hemos tenido nunca. No se le entendía. Hablaba para el cuello de su camisa, pese a que todos le insistimos en que hablase un poco más alto. No se le entendía porque hablaba atropellado, sin vocalizar y con frases inconexas. A parte parecía que tuviese prisa por llegar siempre al siguiente punto, no daba tiempo para el deleite de lo que se visita y la asimilación de los lugares. Repetitivo en sus explicaciones. No aportaba mucha información nueva y era un disco rayado en cuando a contenido de lo que explicaba. Hizo varias referencias sexuales en comparación con los genitales de mi pareja las cuales estaban bastante fuera de lugar y más aún cuando las repitió en 3-4 ocasiones. Damos ambos gracias que conocíamos previamente la Alhambra y sabemos de su historia y grandeza monumental, porque imagino a un primerizo visitándola y teniendo tan terrible guía y se me cae el cielo. Volveremos por supuesto, pero sin guía y con documentación y audio guía para disfrutar como se merece de la experiencia de visitar la Alhambra.

Our guide for this tour was excellent. However the tour did not include the best part - the main Nazrid palace. If you haven’t been before check your tour itinerary as it’s not to be missed. We would have liked to see it a 2nd time….

We traveled 2 hours to the palace and when we got there had a message saying it was cancelled due to lack of people, we still looked around the palace having walked up the hill from the advised parking place, but didn’t have the tour we were expecting so no info on the palace.

Ended up being just us and our tour guide (we came on the off season). Our tour guide Virginia was very knowledgeable, adaptable, and friendly. The Alhambra is exquisite, well worth the visit.

It's written that ticket included for Alhambra and other while it's not and that amount of money it was not worth it

Bien trop cher pour le service en question : 50 euros par personne pour visiter uniquement les extérieurs d’un endroit, certes admirable, mais accessible pour 7,5 euros au guichet. Les intérieurs du palais des Nasrides n’étaient donc pas au programme, ce qui n’était pas clairement indiqué. Très regrettable. Guide hispanophone / anglophone de très bonne qualité cependant. Extrêmement décevant.

Just for context, I was traveling with my 2 year old son. My two reasons for complaining are: 1) I bought 2 adult tickets the day before, and the tourist office told me that kids don’t pay to get into Alhambra so I thought I didn’t have to buy one for the baby. When we went to the meeting point the guide (that was lovely and nothing to say about her) told us that we also needed to buy a ticket for the baby (???). Went to their own store, and I was informed that needed to pay 24€ (!!!) for a ticket for my baby — after, looking at the printed ticket, the ticket was for an adult and no more than 8€. On top of that, they didn’t allow us to go on our tour and rescheduled us for the afternoon (from 10am to 3pm) with no reason at all. 2) In the description they mention the meeting point but never that you need to go up to the Alhambra walking (which is a stretch and ver inclined). I’m 8 months pregnant and would expect to see it clearly in the tour description, since that was a clear criteria to select the tour operator. The guide was really nice and sweet, and clearly new about what she was saying. However, there customer service was really bad and I don’t recommend it, specially for Families with kids.

Virginia was honestly the best guide I have had in memory. I could have listened to her speak all day about the Alhambra/Nasrid dynasty/etc- she knew so much but was able to contextualize it and deliver it in an engaging way. She did an excellent job keeping us prepared/informed (they have to check tickets 3 times etc), the pace of walking and information was perfect, she gave recommendations at the end for local restaurants. 2 spots on the tour give the audio guides some trouble due to the walls around you, but we passed those areas in less than 2 minutes. Be aware this is quite a walking undertaking, so wear comfortable shoes I would definitely recommend Virginia to other travelers!

STAY AWAY When we called them, the “manager” ended up insulting me “you [insert nationality] are the worst clients”. Tour does not start at La Alhambra, it inexplicably starts near the cathedral??? Despite several attempts, they jumped on the opportunity to take our money without providing the service and they refused to give us the underlying monument access ticket, which is explicitly issued under OUR NAMES AND PASSPORTS. Even the people who work at La Alhambra were surprised by how this company behaved. They assured us other companies let people pick up the ticket from the guide or even join the tour at the monument itself.

The tour was good and the guide had a lot of knowledge. Although it didn’t include the Nasrid palace. Also, we didn’t bring photo ID so had to pay another €15 on top to reschedule, it was quite expensive to begin with. In terms of the actual tour itself, I think they should give us some time to explore some of the sights ourselves. E.g. give us some information and then let us walk around for a bit. Sometimes I felt as though I was on a school trip and we all had to stay together. Overall quite expensive for what it was! Personally next time I would just get a normal ticket if possible, otherwise an audio guide might be better than an actual tour guide.

Heel goede gids. Wel verre wandeling naar de ingang. Busje of golfkarretje zou handig zijn. Weinig parking in de buurt, slecht aangegeven.

The tour is accurate based on the itinerary it provided. The guide was knowledgeable about Alhambra. Unfortunately, the tour skips the Nasrid Palace completely. This, in my opinion is what most people line up for. This palace if far better than the ones that were toured to us. I had to purchase another ticket and line up just to get in this as the tickets of this tour doesn't include this palace.

La guide était très bavarde et très intéressante, elle connaissait vraiment bien le lieu et son histoire. La visite a la bonne durée pour les endroits visités. Mais nous avons été déçus de découvrir que le palais n'était pas inclus : ce n'était pas clair en achetant nos billets sur Internet. Nous avons du racheter des billets complets.

Que dire qui n'ai pas encore été dit sur ce lieu magique ... Nous nous y sommes pris un peu tard pour réserver le site, mais finalement, nous avons trouvé une visite guidée de 3 h , en anglais ... ce fut génial de pouvoir écouter notre guide sur l'histoire de ces magnifiques palais ... il serait dommage de visiter sans guide ( nous avons utilisé VIATOR )
