Private tour guide Daniele

Daniele G.

Granada, Spain

Hello, my name is Daniele. I am a licensed official guide since 1999 and I'll be very happy to show you and explain in detail the outstanding heritage of Granada and the magical Alhambra.

Besides being an official guide with permission to explain into the Alhambra Palaces without the assistance of any other guide, I am an expert in Islamic art and the heritage of al-Andalus. I have written and translated several books, cultural guides and articles in exhibition catalogues on these topics. As an example, I have translated the Arab medieval inscriptions and poems of the Alhambra palaces into French in a book titled "Lire l'Alhambra".

My command of the languague and my in-depth knowledge of History, Art History and all the interesting and pleasurable aspects (gastronomy, music, flamenco, literature, etc. ) of the local heritage make me a renowned guide for Granada and the Alhambra tours.

I am usually requested for groups and private tours with special cultural interests. Several institutions like the Granada Tourism Board and The Alhambra Trust ask me to provide them with services for protocol visits of dignitaries, personalities, journalists and familiarization trips for travel agents.

Besides that, my special interests focus on the blend of cultures (Islamic, Christian and Jewish) that have framed the fascinating heritage of Granada, Andalusia and Spain.

I can conduct tours in 5 languages (English, Arabic, French, Italian and Spanish).

My job, as an expert guide and writer, mainly consists of narrating history and art in an accurate and lively way and to transport the traveler and reader to the atmosphere of the historic period.

See you soon in Granada!

A Recent Review of this guide

Danielle G was our guide. He was a true artist! He brought both drama and humor to the history of the palace. He was patent with our questions and had an infectious enthusiasm for the site. We snuck past crowds and saw everything we had hoped for. Great tour and great guide! Thanks a ton!
