"A day trip to the Essential Granada"

This tour will take you from Málaga Port to Granada, a private driver with a fully insurance covered luxury car will take you to Granada.
This tour will take us to the Alhambra Palaces and Generalife Gardens where we will discover the perfect reflection of a Medieval civilisation.
I will take you beyond the beauty of the Alhambra's decorations, a beauty that becomes an objective thing in itself.
Geometry, mathematics, philosophy, astronomy, the sciences and especially poetry will be the main materials used to enhance my Alhambra tour for you.

In the Generalife gardens you can explore the evolution of a garden that expresses, like no other, everything that is typically Spanish - the integration of nature and architecture, the concept of the orchard-garden, the fragrances of Al-Andalus and much more.

At the end of our tour I will take you downtown for an hour- long walk through Granada city center. We will end in a traditional tapas bar, or handpicked restaurant.

. . . back to the ship.

A Recent Review of this tour

Federico was absolutely fabulous. We could not have asked for a better guide. His knowledge of Granada and the Alhambra is unparalleled. We especially enjoyed the discussion about the symbolism and geometry of the Alhambra. We also had a diverse group of personalities and he was perfect with the young men in our group who are not typically as interested in all the details as well as my mother who wants to know all the details. I highly recommend Federico.
