Daniele was a truly wonderful tour guide. He was incredibly informed on The Alhambra and explained very clearly each aspect of the tour we were experiencing. All 5 of us agree we could not have gotten a better guide!!

Our rating for Daniele was a 5. He is extremely knowledgeable about Islam traditions and culture and his ability to read Arabic have extra dimension to the tour of Alhambra. He also helped us avoid crowds and see some local Granada places.

What a fabulous tour! We have been on many private tours, and this one stands out as one of the best ever. Daniele was informative, funny, charming, and made the site come alive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his tour.

On September 18 my husband and I had a tour in Granada with Daniel. He was probably one of the best guides we ever had. He is so knowledgable and is willing to share this information with us. We were very happy that we chose Daniel and would recommend him to anyone!

Daniele's knowledge of the history of the Alhambra and his ability to make it come alive are phenomenal. We also appreciated his easy manner and his efforts to give us the best experience possible. -Cecile le Roux
I did this tour for my parents. Daniele is knowledgeable. He also shows balance between respect towards the sacredness of Alhambra as a historical monument, and the reality/shadow side of the history. I chose him as he is able to share with us the meaning of the inscription.

We were completely spoiled by our tour of the Alhambra with Daniele and wouldn't want to have any other guide. His seemingly infinite wealth of knowledge about the place, and especially his ability to literally read the palace walls, reciting the beautiful Arabic poetry, made it come alive. We appreciated his ability and willingness to talk about history in sophisticated and subtle terms. He was perceptive, noticing our interest in history, and responding accordingly. Generous, thoughtful, and witty.
Andrea JohnstonUnited States
Daniele was fantastic! His enthusiasm for the history and beauty of La Alambra was amazing. He is incredibly knowledgable and speaks perfect english. I would highly recommend him.

If you are in Granada and would like to take a tour of the Alhambra, pick Daniele G. We are independent travellers who hire guides around the wolrd as we like the intimacy of a private tour. Daniele G. speaks perfect English. He also speaks Arabic and Spanish perfectly and will provide you with very detailed information about The Alhambra and the history and culture gong back thousands of years. He's passionate about his work and you will find him an absolute delight! You will learn a lot and have fun too
Marian DunsheeUnited States
Daniele is an incredible guide. Our afternoon with him gave us thorough insight to the past glories of Islamic Granada and the dazzling sensory splendors of the Alhambra. He helped us imagine what was there and no longer is, and with his command of Arabic helped us understand the embedded calligraphy of the endlessly decorated walls and ceilings of the palaces. He's smart with a sly sense of humor. For travelers who want a sophisticated tour with the details of history, he's the guy.

Daniele is as good a guide as you'll get. Perfect English, but also speaks and reads Arabic which is so useful at this site. And he's very funny. Use him without any hesitation!
Rex JonesUnited Kingdom
A mixed group of travellers were guided around the Alhambra by a man with in-depth knowledge of the site, Daniele brought to life the Palace and all the surrounding areas. Never looked at a guide book and answered all our questions with ease. He has an exceptional knowledge of his subject and a relaxed manner in which he delivered an informative and pleasurable tour. Thank you very much. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone visiting Granada and the Alhambra.
Theodore EastwickUnited States
Daniele may be the most passionate guide I have encountered in a long time. He loves his work and it shows. Along with his deep-dive knowledge of the Alhambra and it's history, Daniele speaks Arabic. He translates the verse etched on the walls of the Alhambra's magical edifices. I highly recommend Daniele for his factual l iwledge and his theatrical flair.
Paolo NarcisoUnited States
One of the best tours I've ever taken. Highlight of my trip.
Mickey TaitUnited States
Daniele is an expert on the Alhambra and world history . He is over qualified as a guide. He is fluent in many languages including Arabic . Daniele also reads and writes Arabic so was able to translate the script that is entwined into many of the building decorations . His commentary brought the Alhamba and the history of Andalusia to life. Best docent ever.
Daniele is AWESOME. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing his knowledge. We were a group of 9 with 5 being young adults from the ages of 14-27. These young adults thought Daniele did a fantastic job of bringing the history of AlHambra to life. If you want to experience and learn about AlHambra I would have no hesitation in recommending Daniele.
Laurie WeirUnited States
Daniele was informative, personable, eloquent, full of insight, and detailed understanding of the Alhambra and Generalife! He was creative in his storytelling and helped us imagine what life was really like there. He wanted us to have a great experience and we did. Highest regard.
Mohamed KhanUnited States
Daniele just gave the most amazing tour my family and I have ever been on. He is incredibly knowledgeable, with a deep understanding the history and intricate knowledge of Alhambra (having translated much of the writing gs on it to French). He took us back to the past, telling us the history in an often enjoyable and amusing way, where we were preparing to meet the Sultan. The presented a rich, rewarding, and peaceful journey through the rich tapestry that is Alhambra.
Jason SmithUnited Kingdom
Daniele's obvious enthusiasm and knowledge throughout the tour, made the tour an absorbing and fascinating insight in to the culture and history of the site. His wonderful sense of humour made our tour a sheer pleasure! His intellectual knowledge (including fluent Arabic) allowed us to access The Alhambra in a way that would not otherwise have been possible. I have already recommended him several times, and will continue to do so. An absolutely first rate guide!!!
Patricia MerklinUnited States
Daniele was an amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgable about the site, it's history, the history of the area at the time and the founders. He was able to provide us with translations of the script throughout and give us a such unique perspective . We all walked away pleased with the experience and could find no fault with the tour.
Sue FoleyUnited Kingdom
Daniele was a wonderful guide! His knowledge of both the Alhambra and Islamic architecture and art was amazing. We learnt so much!
Jack GarrettUnited Kingdom
Daniele was the perfect guide. His knowledge of the Alhambra, and the history of Moorish Spain was significant. He provided us with an imaginative experience, helping us to understand the nuances of art, philosophy, architecture and mathematical aesthetic that form the foundations of the palace. It was a perfect walkthrough of a place I have wanted to visit for over 20 years. I can highly recommend Daniele as a guide.
Ira RosensteinUnited States
Danielle gave us a great tour of the Alhambra. Incredibly knowledgeable, interesting and passionate about the site. Great for history buffs but also good with our teens.
Pat JanecekUnited States
Daniele made our tour of the Alhambra a trip into the past as he described how everything looked back in the day of the Sultans and their families. We could smell the flowers and visualize how the flower gardens must have looked. We especially appreciated that he could read the Arabic in the tiles . His knowledge of the Alhambra history was impressive which he shared freely. A great conversationalist he answered our questions as soon as they came to mind. He gets our highest rating.
Kelly GrahamUnited States
Daniele was very thorough in knowledge and pleasant to be with answering any questions we asked. He kept us moving at an nice pace with out rushing but made sure we saw as much as possible in the time we had available and managed avoiding the larger groups to give a more intimate experience. Daniele was also kind enough to recommend some restaurants and other sights in Granada that might be of interest.
Julianne TamasyUnited States
Through our tour with Daniele, we learned that the Alhambra was an architectural poem to the divine as well as to human accomplishments on earth. Daniele is an accomplished Islamist historian and linguist - and through his deep knowledge of the history and culture of the Islamic world, we were able to understand the sublime intricacies of the Alhambra - the science, the math, the artistry, the religious,and the poetry. We ended the tour with a far greater understanding of El Andalus from Daniele.
