Easy pace around the site with good photo opportunities and cohesive commentary by our guide. Our guide Jaime was well prepared with excellent delivery and manner. He took trouble to answer our questions. He was enthusiastic about his subject and obviously enjoyed his work. This was a very enjoyable and instructive tour.

The tour with Martha was really interesting and informative! She has a nice way to explain the history, so that everybody can follow and understand. Martha did everything that our tour won’t get boring (all the little „surprises“, book and viewpoint recommendations...) and besides all the informations and dates she always took care that we can make photos at the best views/that we won’t miss the best views. I can really recommend!!

I booked a tour titled "Walking Tour with Skip the Line Ticket to The Nasrid Palaces of the Albayzn in Granada" through TripAdvisor. In its Overview, it says "Discover the capital of the Nasrid Dynasty on a 2.5-hour walking tour of Granada's Alhambra, Nasrid Palaces, and Bañuelo (11th-century Arabic baths). Get stunning views of the city from the San Nicolás viewpoint, and enjoy skip-the-line access to one of the finest examples of Islamic architecture in Europe." I was confused by the contradictory descriptions at first, as The Nasrid Palaces is in Alhambra and not in Albazin, but I thought they must have planned things out. And as The Nasrid Palaces ticket was so explicitly advertised in the title, I didn't expect it to be a hoax. I even googled The Nasrid Palaces a few times to make sure that there's only one place that's called that!

So imagine my shock when the guide did give me a ticket (a general ticket with Alhambra and some other attractions), I realised the entrance to The Nasrid Palaces had expired 5 hours ago - the tour was at 5 pm, but the time on the ticket to visit The Nasrid Palaces was 12 am. Confused as I was, I was still hopeful that maybe the tour company had a way to arrange the entrance during the tour. Then I asked fellow tour group members about it, to my surprise they said that they went to the palaces that morning, as apparently they booked a full tour and I only booked the tour for Albazin. There's no such information on the webpage where I booked the tour from. After asking the guide said, at first he was surprised that I thought we would go to The Nasrid Palaces, then to cover for the company, he said that we WERE going to visit The Nasrid Palaces, but not the one in Alhambra, which doesn't make any sense, as "The Nasrid Palaces" is obviously a specialised term. What we did visit were three very minor attractions - one Arab bath house, one nobleman's house, and a small and plain "palace" which I'm very reluctant to call a "palace".

I had only booked this tour so that I could visit The Nasrid Palaces, so after the initial bewilderment I was very disappointed and furious to find out that I was blatantly cheated. I tried to enjoy the tour as much as I could but I was again disappointed by its quality. It was hands-down the worst tour I've been part of, no way professional, and a level below the free tours I attended before. The guide spoke very quietly, often traced off at the end of the sentence, mispronounced so many words that the whole tour was a like a guessing game for me, and he kept saying "I really like this, I really like that", and nothing much more about the things that he's pointing out, which I found very unprofessional, as I'm on the tour to learn about the history and not the guide's opinion. Besides, the tour is only 2 hours in total, not the 2.5 hours that it advertises.

I contacted the tour company with my complaint but still haven't heard from them.

Dear Silvia, We have read your review and we'd like to explain the situation and why you were not cheated at all by Nhue Concierge. Firstly, let me explain that the adjective "Nasrid" makes reference to the Nasrid Dinasty of Granada, from XIII to XV centuries. All the palaces built during this period by this dinasty are called "Nasrid". The constructions you visited during the tour were Nasrid palaces, as they were palaces and they were built by them. The "minor" attractions you visited were the oldest hammam in Spain, the best sample of Nasrid domestic architecture and the palace transformed and occupied by Aixa, a Nasrid sultana, during the war of Granada, which is considered one of the treasures of the Islamic architecture in Granada. Secondly, when you book a tour to "The Nasrid Palaces of the Albazyn in Granada", you can check the Alhambra is not mentioned. Not a single time. There is a list of the places you can visit during the tour and the Alhambra is not there. The ticket you got for Alhambra and Albaicín was expired hours ago, but the rest of the group you joined enjoyed the tour to the Alhambra as they booked for the Alhambra tour too. This is the first time we have such a problem or confussion, and we are sorry you missed the Alhambra, but as I said before, you were not cheated by us. You bought a product thinking it was something else, but And finally, your tour guide was Eduardo (Edu). We have more tan 80 reviews, 99% excellent, and many of them say Eduardo is a great tour guide. I guess this is a very personal opinion and not everyone agrees on how a good tour guide should be, but Eduardo counts on our total confidence. As I said before, we are sorry about your bad experience with us. It was maybe an unfortunate misunderstanding, but never a false advertising. We will try to do our best to avoid this situation from now on with future customers. Thank you for help us to improve. Kindest regards, Marta Cárceles

The Alhambra is a splendid monument, and our guide Igone was just great! In addition of very rich explanation and answers to all our questions, we've been granted with humor and good vibes. Her english is perfectly understandable in the high quality provided headphones. Don't miss it, it's definitely better than visiting alone.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Edoardo was an excellent, well-informed guide. Even when we were running over (first day of transition to new system of entry), Edoardo took time out of his own schedule to make sure we saw all the places/points of interest part of the program. He had a great knowledge of the area and was able to respond to all the questions of the group. We really enjoyed this history lesson and tour.
