Hana A.

Granada, Spain

In 2003 I made a decision to sell the family silver and move from the United States to Spain.

I have no regrets.

I have worked with toursbylocals for just over a year. However . . . fellow board directors at a university art museum in the States enjoyed seeing Granada with a native English speaker. It was from those interactions I developed my own unique organized walking tours shortly after I moved to Granada 16 years ago.

I have kept quite busy touring with wonderful people from 39 countries around the world.

I am an artist and high end designer having managed and executed projects from New York City to San Franscisco. My interests are deeply rooted in applied art and architectural design. It was a natural transition to study the Islamic artistic applications and architectural aspects found in the Alhambra and Granada.

When you visit the Alhambra with me
I provide your Alhambra entrances and am with you along side an official, State Licensed Alhambra guide who will lead the tour with us inside the Alhambra monument.

I will personally guide you in native spoken English through Granada's city center, Sacromonte and the ancient village of Albaicin.

After living in the area of Albayzin for 16 years my research and studies have produced an in-depth knowledge of its curiosities.

On my walking tours I will show you hidden nooks and crannies not found in the guide books. Places only known to the locals that you would never find on your own.

My knowledge of all the pleasurable aspects (art, architecture, gastronomy, music, flamenco, etc. ) of the city makes me a renowned guide for the city of Granada.

So. . . come join me for an Alhambra Private visit (including Alhambra entrances) or one of my informative strolls through the city. Allow me to share my experience and enthusiasm with you.

A Recent Review of this guide

We enjoyed our tour and were pleased to have Hana give us a historical overview of the area. Particularly liked visiting the cave. The flamenco show was excellent and we had first class seating on the balcony.
