I think if travellers had been told a week before travelling that there were no tickets to visit the Alhambra as a group, there would have been time for people to obtain their own entry tickets on line and therefore visit what should have been one of...

Thoroughly enjoyed all the venues we visited. Everything was well organised and ran like clockwise. The tour manager was extremely friendly, informative and helpful. Pity we didn't have just one more day in Seville as there is a lot to see and obvi...

Visiting the Alhambra palace was down as a highlight but head office did not get daytime tickets and we only got a late night visit to the summer palace starting at 9.30pm. Reason for going on tour was the attraction adaytime visiti to the Alhambra. ...

I enjoyed the holiday and was only marred by the Alhambra tour which did not come up to expectations.

The intention of the holiday was to see the Alhambra complex in Granada. The visit was for 60 minutes at night under floodlight. The visit only concentrated on the gardens and was hazardous to people with walking difficulties due to the dark. The who...

I wish to draw your attention to Boris Perisic and David Garcia Soldado (tour guides). My compliments to Boris for his enthusiastic, caring and exemplary way in which he conducted himself to each and every person on our tour. He was attentive and in good humour at all times and his commentaries on sights he was pointing out to us was historically and explanatory, which made our holiday most memorable.

Please pass on my compliments to him. David Garcia Soldada was our Cordoba guide. He was informative and passionate about Cordoba and in particular the Alhambra Palace. My compliments to him too.
