Tour of the Alhambra

We visited the Alhambra the week of Thanksgiving and it was an outstanding experience. BEATRICE was our guide and she was so knowledgable and took her time explaining the history and the function of the different parts of the building. Later that evening we took a tour of the Albacín with her and that was also fun. She was prompt, friendly and just added to our enjoyment of Granada.
Terrific Private Tour of the Alhambra and Generalife with Lucia Caparros

We had the good fortune to spend three hours exploring the site in the company of Lucia, an independent tour guide who we found through Cicerone Granada. A graduate of the University of Granada concentrating in Islamic art and architectural history, her deep knowledge of and passion for her subject matter made this ancient complex come alive with telling details about its history, its construction and the meanings behind the many ornamented surfaces. Her English is excellent. She paced the tour well, quickly perceived what mattered to us and mixed the serious with fun. We learned how to distinguish between bitter and sweet orange trees by the shape of the leaves as well as the differences between the original Moorish buildings and the later Christian additions. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour.
