This was a great day at the Alhambra! Our guide Pedro was professional, informative, knowledgeable about all things Spain, and very kind. He was very engaging, and added a personal touch to the tour. We learned more about the Alhambra than I expected. He gave us so much background information on what we were seeing! Gave context to the old city on the hill. Thank you so much Pedro for making our day so enjoyable!!
Absolutely amazing!

Our guide Jaime was amazing. For 3 hours he took us on a journey through 1000 years of history of the Alhambra. We were met at the entrance and the tickets were already purchased. He also gave us a lot. of tips on things to do in Granada. The restaurant recommendation was great and we ended up going there a couple of times.
Cut to the chase with a private guide.

Having Pedro as our private guide saved time and energy having to find our way around by ourselves. We also learned so much about the venue and had lots of tidbits that tours do not usually provide. It made the tour fun and interesting.
Who knew!

The beauty and the history of Alhambra. Our guide Pedro made it come to life. There were so many things we did not know about the 2 religions able to exist side by side for long periods of time.
Great Guide

Our guide Simone was excellent. I managed to screw up our meeting point by waiting at the wrong entrance - Simone met us there and changed the route he had planned for us to make sure we used out tickets at the correct time. He was very knowledgeable and made the visit to a magnificent monument even more interesting!

Couldn’t have asked for a better guide to the Alhambra for me, my wife, and young daughter than the energetic Pedro. He met us very early at the main gate and started the tour by putting the Alhambra’s story in the context of the broader historical and geopolitical context of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East from the 8th century onwards. In addition to talking about the Alhambra’s story, he was ready with a folder of pictures and maps to enhance the tour.

It was a special experience walking the Nasrid Palace and grounds in the first light of the morning, when fewer people were around. As the tour progressed, the colors - and the atmosphere - of the monument changed as the sunlight intensified. Pedro pointed out small and interesting details along the way, including the one stained glass that survived the palace’s abandonment before it was restored later in the 20th century and a hole in the ground of an excavated soldiers’ neighborhood that our daughter quickly guessed was a toilet. At one point, he raced up the stairs to take a family photo of us from a spot a floor above us. At the end of the tour, he walked us down to the center of the old city and suggested a place for us to have lunch later in the day.
The most amazing monument ever!

We had booked a private transfer with Not Just a Tourist and they suggested that we book this private visit of Alhambra instead of a group tour. It could not have been a better idea. We met our guide, Pedro, at the entrance and had a 2.5 hour walk in this amazing fortress. Pedro, had a lot of anecdotes to bring it into life and we learnt a great deal about the history but also the present role of Alhambra in the city life.
