Private tour guide Esmeralda Manuela

Esmeralda Manuela P.

Granada, Andalucia, Spain

Hello! My name is Esmeralda and I am an official tour guide in Granada with permission to enter and show the Alhambra Palaces without the support of other guides!

I am working as a free-lance tour guide, specialising in private tours.
It will be my pleasure to show you the beauty of this city and to transport you to the magical time of the medieval Alhambra.
I am an Italian anthropology expert in interculturality who moved to Granada more than 13 years ago. I came through a university exchange and fell in love with this gorgeous city and never moved back! My passion was that strong that I studied and undertook a government exam to become a guide and to be able to transmit my enthusiasm and knowledge to many travellers.
I am particularly interested in history and the arts, which I explain in a narrative and humorous way. I love sharing my knowledge of local traditions: the ways of living, music, dance, food, religion and philosophy. I have travelled across Europe, Turkey, Persia, Asia, South America and North Africa and, as a passionate and well-travelled person, I am able to contextualise the facts on a large scale and approach history from different points of view.
I will take you beyond the beauty of historic sites and give you a tour that explores all the complexities of this land full of history, literature and philosophy. I provide a particular focus on the different people and cultures (Christian, Muslim and Jewish) who shared the same space for centuries in medieval times.
I can offer you dynamic tours narrated in a lively way that will transport you into the atmosphere of the time and I can tailor them to your own requests and interests. Just let me know!
As a licenced tour guide, I am allowed to enter into all historic attractions and churches in Granada. I am also happy to pick you up from the airport, Motril or Malaga Port in private and high-class transportation.
