This is the first time that I've ever taken a guided tour and to be honest I only booked it because I was too late to get an unguided ticket. However I am now a convert as the experience was so good. Our guide Edu was a really nice knowledgeable chap who was able to share his enthusiasm in an infectious way. We were able to get way more out of our trip than if we'd gone around on our own. The Albaicin was a bonus that we weren't really expecting to bother with as we thought we'd be too tired. However Edu made the area come alive and we saw and learned way more than if we'd strolled around on our own.

All other aspects such as meeting up, headsets and the pace were all very good

Excellent tour. Guide first language was French but spoke clear English. She explained a lot. We went back to the Alhambra after the Albaicin tour and just wandered around. It is a lot of walking and the Albaicin area is uphill. Our guide explained to some folks how to use bus to get up there but they chose to walk albeit very slowly.

The two tours on the same day were too much in one day for this pensioner, therefore only giving 4 stars. For me, it would have been easier to visit the Alhambra and Generalife in the morning, as we did, and start as early as possible to beat the heat of the day, but defer the Albaicin for another day. Our Alhambra guide was outstandingly good - knowledgeable and eminently likeable - she was lovely vivacious and brought the whole tour to life.
After the Alhambra, the late afternoon tour of the Albaicin felt distinctly underwhelming interesting historically, but not all so impressive. Again, our guide was very good and instructive.
Take a modest bottle of water with you and refill it at the numerous drinking fountains in the Alhambra. Large rucksacks and pushchairs strollers are not permitted inside some of the palaces - check beforehand. Light refreshments and drinks can be bought on the way round, also, there is a Parador in the grounds, with a good quality restaurant and a terrace for lighter meals, both of which are open to non-residents.
