“Enjoyable but a little difficult to understand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

Our tour guide was Stephanie and she was obviously very knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Granada. For the most part, I found her to be very interesting and we visited places that we probably would have skipped or, if we had visited, not completely understood. I also greatly appreciated her willingness to comment on subjects that didn't directly relate to the tour. My rating of 4 stars rather than 5 is due to Stephanie's accent, which at times was extremely heavy and difficult to understand.

“Good place to start if you have time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

The guide was informative and open to questions. We really appreciated the restaurant recomendation for lunch at the end of the tour, Pilar de Toro. It's set in a 17th century house. The food and service were a very good value. The assorted starter plate for two persons was two courses with many things to try. The waiter included an appetizer plate as well with service of the wine. The price was 43 € and plenty of food.
