I felt some areas received far too much emphasis (like the Alcaicin, the Coal Inn etc) and with less dwelling on topic for each site (whose importance culturally and historically was usually reiterating the same story and tended to be repetitious) the guide could have shortened the tour which for my group went over the two hours. Too often the heavily accented guide whose limited (not too fluent) command of English caused her to suffer in clarity would use the same phrases with rare variation to drive the similar points throughout the city. She should learn a variety of synonyms to enrich her talk. I think "The Catholic monarchs" was heard far too frequently. "Nobeeleety peepol" can be expressed as nobility, aristocracy, the nobles, the aristocrats, the ruling class... etc. It took us a long while to decipher that something she kept referring to turns out to be "hydraulics" Many times I wished that I had taken the tour in SPANISH (which I suspect might have been more explicit and engaging, using the exact terms for what was being conveyed, rather than simple and basic attempts at communicating important historic concepts. It came off as an all too simplistic explanation of almost everything you saw. It had very little to teach me. However, as it was essential in taking you through areas one might have gotten lost in, or bypassed, with little understanding of what one was seeing, I did enjoy the experience. Hence the 4 stars. I Just wonder if that is their best tour guide and envy whoever lucked out with a more English-proficient one.
