While Daniele was an interesting guide, he was overpriced. We enjoyed the tour, but it was not exceptional;the price of the tour was almost double the cost of other guides we hired. We had hoped that Daniele would spend the entire time discussing with us the Islamic culture--art, poetry, language, since his bio indicates that this is his interest. Unfortunately he only spent about a quarter of the tour discussing these things. He devoted a fair amount of time to the standard historical overview.

It was great to have an Arabic speaker who could tell us what the inscriptions meant in the palaces of the Alhambra. Daniele was a very knowledgable man with a love of the city he lived in. Recommended!!!

After a slight delay in starting our day. He was so patient with us and gave us a tour with such a personal touch. He was like a friend taking us around to show us his hometown!

I am a tour organizer, and have booked local guides for more than 30 years. Our guide Daniele (perfect name—he is fluent in 5 languages) for five hours in the Alhambra and City Center was perhaps the best ever. His enthusiasm, wit and energy never lagged, and besides being an expert on local history, art and architecture, he is also a poet and philosopher. My tour members looked at each other in amazement as he rattled off poetry etched in the Alhambra walls in Arabic. We spent
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Judy. It was really a pleasure to be with you and your enthusiast friends! In 5 hours we certainly could discover the essence of Granada, but you must come back: the city has so many other hidden treasures! Thanks again for everything and see you soon.
