A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful tour of the Albayzin with Conchi. She walked with us up to the top of the área, showing us many things, including the distinctive houses,the wáter systems, and the mosques that became churches. She gave us a lot of history of the área through the ages and also gave us some great recommendations for other things to see and do in Granada. I highly recommend the tour.
