What To Expect

The Alhambra
The tour focuses on the Alhambra, the last Moorish bastion on the Iberian Peninsula. On our way are the former Franciscan monastery, the church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra and the palace of Charles V. However, the heart of the Alhambra are the Nasrid Palaces: Mexuar, Comares and the Löwenhof. Not to forget the beautiful gardens: Partal and Generalife.

During the tour we learn who was behind the construction of the Alhambra, what the intention was, why it was called "the red castle", what construction techniques were used and how the ceramics and stucco decorations were made. We also breathe the aromas of the gardens des Generalife, listen to the water channels, watch the play of light in the courtyards, learn about the special features of the Arab-Andalusian gardens, decipher the meaning of the numerous symbols and poems that adorn the walls of the palaces.

I don't know which part of the private tour was the best one ... I love gardens, plants, and I was truly amazed how much Anastasie knows about the garden and it's history. One hour was simply to short ;-)
The second part, inside Alhambra and Generalife, was just the same: so many interesting informations within 2 hours! We both were impressed by Anastasias scientific knowledge as well as her impart knowledge.
Time flew by so fast. She was a wonderfull teacher, aswered all our questions and we simply had a good time in her company.

The next day we met again to learn about the city, the old town of Granada with the Moorish quarter Albaicin. We also visited the Monasterio de la Cartuja, and again we realized:
It is only through the guidance of an expert that one sees and understands a building, its pictures, its statues, and the whole story behind it. Our interest in churches is actually not great, but in this case, through Anastasia's highly interesting explanations, we dived into a completely different world. We were both indescribably fascinated.

Anastasia, we thank you very much. And for anyone who really wants to understand Granada's history, we highly recommend all of your guided tours.
Granada verstehen? Unmöglich ohne Anastasia. Höchstes fachliches Niveau mit viel Charme. Unbedingt frühzeitig buchen. Top Notch!

Anastasia hat uns mit viel Know-How die Alhambra und Generalife nähergebracht.
Die vielen interessanten Geschichten haben uns begeistert. Wir empfehlen die Tour durch die Alhambra unbedingt geführt zu unternehmen, am besten mit Anastasia.
Una excursión maravillosa.

Hacer la visita a la Alhambra con Anastasia ha sido una gran experiencia. Las horas que estuvimos con ella pasaron volando. Además de la grandeza y belleza del monumento por si mismas, sus explicaciones, el conocimiento de la história y la manera de contar todas estas leyendas y poesías hacen inolvidable la excursión.
Realmente, uno se queda con ganas de conocer más ésta cultura. Totalmente recomendable.
