Federico was an excellent guide for the Alhambra. Extremely knowledgeable about the history of the region and the site specifically. He was well organized, prompt and very relaxed in his delivery. Also was very flexible with the tour so we missed all the crowds whilst still keeping to the time allocations of the Alhambra. Highly recommend Federico for other travelers looking for a great time in Granada.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Craig for taking the time to write this review. Hope to see you again in Granada. Best wishes.

I am so glad we booked Federico to take use through the Alhambra and Generalife - he was very knowledgeable from so many different aspects - and really brought the place alive for us. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters, and he even won over the teenagers! We heard all about history, geometry, poetry, science, architecture, earthquake resistance - Federico asked what our interests were - and picked out the most interesting information for us. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nicole for taking the tuime to write this review. I also enjoyed your passion for Maths and the attention of your whole family to my humble description of the science of the Alhambra. Hope to see you again in Spain. Stay with best regards

This was the most amazing tour ever. Frederico is beyond fantastic. He obviously takes pride in what he does. His level of knowledge and his capacity to explain it is both substantial and impressive. There were 11 of us in the group today, including 5 youths ranging from 10 - 17 yrs. Frederico consistently engaged them throughout the tour and made many modern-day analogies so that they could relate to the historical context. I cannot imagine how deficient the visit would have been without his input.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lubna, it was my pleasure, congratulatiions for having such a lovely family and all your very well educated children, I am also a father and know there are a number of hours dedicated on your side behind. Hope to see you again in Spain. Federico

Federico and his tour was amazing! He clearly has breadth/depth of knowledge of the history of Granada & Alhambra. He was very engaging, entertaining and made special effort to connect with my 2 children (14/12). We learned about and saw things that we would not have noticed without him. His English is perfect and he is very organized. I now have a greater appreciation for the history/culture of the region. I highly recommend Federico and I will be recommending him to friends.

Federico was a serious and knowledgable guide who was willing to answer any and all questions posed by our group. He was only available for a half day tour but provided a great deal of information is that limited time. It was especially interesting when he took us into a church for contemplative nuns where one was praying. Even though in public she was completely covered and only faced the altar.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bonnie for your rating. It was a pleasure to be with a historian like you. Despite of the fact that we didnt visit the Alhambra together but the Albayzin and the Royal Chapel, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed that tour. Thanks a million.

Using a private guide for just the two of us to see the Alhambra was indeed a splurge. But for one of the great monuments of the world, it was surely worth every penny of it. Our tour with Federico was fun because not only did he give us the basic history, but hey, what did the Apple guys from Dublin who were in town recently think of the mathematical genius of the Alhambra? It's stories like this that give extra dimension and depth. Would have awarded FIVE stars, but your site wouldn't record it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rebecca for your positive feedback. It was a pleasure to be with you at the Alhambra and that you enjoyed the scientifical achievments of the Nasrids. Sorry for the system not allowing you to rate five starts, I will contact our support team to let them know. In any case that is not important. Hope to see you in the future in Granada. Warmest Regards.

We gave Federico 5 stars because there is no 6 star rating. We wanted an historian or architect educated in the area. We enjoy detailed explanations anchored in history and traditions, including art history; comparisons with other countries or regions . Federico did know all that, he speaks excellent English, masters idioms with a great sense,of humor . We highly recommend him over enthusiastic imported guides if you enjoy culture.

Federico is extremely knowledgeable and gave us good context for our tour: we certainly learned a lot about the history of Granada and the Moors influence. We perhaps would have liked more detail or scholarly approach. That's particular to us so we would highly recommend Federico.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Rebecca, Thank you for your positive feedback. It was a pleasure to show you the citadel of the Alhambra and the Generalife gardens durig our 3 hours tour. On your next visit to Granada probably in a longer tour I will be pleased to take you into a more detailed and scholarly presntation into this fascinating monument that compiles the knowledge of what it was the most developed civilitation of its time. Thanks and hope to see you in the future. Federico.

There is a reason I continually use Toursbylocals. The guides are flexible, extremely knowledgeable, and strive to make your vacation perfect. Federico works with us to coordinate a flight from the US and drive from Madrid for an ideal time to start in Grenada. He went out of his way to secure hard to get tickets to the incredible evening show at the Mezquita Cordoba. And finally had us laughing and learning at the memorable Alhambra. My son and I are still chuckling over his final description.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lawrence, Thank you for your review. You made such a huge effort to visit Granada and Córdoba in one day coming from Madrid that I felt I had to do everything in my hands to make it easier. It was a pleasure to be with you and your son.

The Alhambra is a sprawling complex with multiple buildings and a myriad of things to see. Having an expert guide helped make it a meaningful experience and maximize our time.

Federico is a superior guide: knowledgeable about the history, architecture and cultural impact of all three religions . Passionate about philosophy, science, and art as reflected in historical poetic documents relevant to the Alhambra complex. We learned much more than we anticipated and enjoyed Federico s wit and stories. This was not a "The king slept here" tour, but a tour based on scholarly evidence. We were very fortunate.

Excellent tour. The Alhambra was brought alive by our most knowledgeable guide who painted a picture of what this palace must have been like many centuries ago. The tour pace was just right and we both felt that his information revealed interesting aspects that we would never have appreciated had it not been for our guide. Well worth it.
