Conchi was very knowledable on the history and architecture of the Alhambra. She was fun and entertaining and took care to make sure we understood before moving to the next point of interest. I would defiantly recommend her as a guide.
Valerie AllenUnited States
Conchi was timely, knowledgeable, personable and easy to be with. We loved our time with her and highly recommend her. Our trip to the Alhambra came to life through Conchi's poetic words bringing us back to ancient times with the Sultans.
Ellen RautenbergUnited States
Conchi was high energy and knew her stuff about the Alhambra. However, she seemed to be on autopilot and could benefit from taking a little time to learn about her group and tailoring accordingly.
Kathy K.United States
Conchi was enthusiastic, interesting, and had facts and figures at her fingertips. We very much enjoyed her sense of humor and her perspective on history. Our group would highly recommend Conchi for anyone's tour.
Conchi was an excellent guide for our tour of Alhambra. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to tour Alhambra and learn about the palace. Her knowledge of Alhambra and the history of the region made our visit a memorable one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Doug for your kind words :) I enjoyed the visit with you and Silvia as well !¡
Barbara PerryUnited Kingdom
Can't rate Conchi highly enough. From the outset, her communication was perfect from arranging a meeting point right through to the end of her amazing tour, well past the allotted 3 hours! Her knowlegde was wide ranging and her enthusiasm infectious, even managing to engage a slightly taciturn teenager into joining in. There was so much we would've missed or not understood if we'd gone into the Alhambra alone and Conchi was able to adapt the tour to suit us. Thank you so much for the best day out.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Barbara, thank you very much for your kind words! We had a great time together and I was feeling that you were enjoying the tour asking and being curious so... that makes me feel better and increase my explanations to you ;-) Now you know that you have a new friend in Granada. Hope you will be back in my place soon! Besos y abrazos desde Granada and a big hug for Ben!
Marcia S.United States
We enjoyed a wonderful tour of the Alhambra with Conchi. She met us at our hotel and shared some of the history of the monument and Granada as we rode up to the palace. Her English is excellent so we were totally engaged with the tour and her comments on the Alhambra's place in history. Her thorough knowledge of the history made the stories come alive and left us with vivid memories of the Alhambra through the centuries. We would highly recommend taking a tour with Conchi when you are in Granada.
Our guide Conchi is very friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us a very good introduction of Granada, everywhere we go. We learned so much the history, culture, and local customs from Conchi's interesting stories. Conchi is willing to go extra miles helping us to find good restaurants and local transportation to other cities. We appreciate very much Conchi's thoughtful service. Thank you! Conchi

Conchi was really knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We were over 30 minutes late for a tour booked late the day before so she had to work hard to find tickets etc, but she was happy and positive the whole tour. She was a great guide whom we would happily use again and recommend.
Scott CohenUnited States
Conchi did a great job as s guide with my two kids. My son felt that she was attentive to him and that made him happy and kept his interest. Conchi also helped us arrange transportation to Cordoba and Seville with a very professional driver named Juan. I highly recommend Conchi if you want a knowledgeable and friendly guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Scott!! You were a nice family and It was my pleasure to be your tour guide in Granada. About Juan the driver he's a professional:)
Conchi was a fantastic guide and everything we could have hoped for to bring this marvellous monument to life. Toursbylocals is expensive and we debated whether or not to use but Conchi definitely made it worth while

Bonnie ScogginsUnited States
Conchi was a great and energetic guide with a great sense of humor. In addition to providing excellent information on the Alhambra Palaces and area, she made sure we knew about local customs like tapas bars and ordering as well as recommendations as to where to eat and shop. She absolutely knew the best places to take pictures and frequently volunteered to take mass group pictures of all of us. We regretted that she was only available to us for a half day. We would have loved to have her more.

Conchi went out of her way to find us tickets to the Alhambra. She keep in touch with us to let us know how that was going even before we got there. Her tour of the Alhambra was wonderful. She knew so much and could answer all of our questions. We were so lucky to have her as our tour guide. I would highly recommend her. Marilyn and Larry Leff
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marilyn ! It was so hard to find the tickets that I felt really good when I knew We were able to do the tour. It was always my pleasure to become your tour guide in the Alhambra. Thanks! Conchi

Megan RossUnited States
I traveled to Granada with my teenage daughter and Conchi was wonderful at bringing history alive for us both. Her history stories were relatable and fun making our tour very pleasurable! Also Conchi kindly helped us to secure tickets to the Alahambra last minute. We would definitely tour with her again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Megan!!! You and your daughter were great visitant making my job easier...always with a smile in your faces!! Conchi.
Jerry BlakeUnited States
Conchi was full of great information. She was enthusiastic and kept us moving at the right pace.
She was very enthusiastic and had a wonderful tour with her. Also she managed our Alhambra tickets, so it was a relaxed time for the group. Even with earlier communications, Conchi was very Prompt and active.
Paul Leith-smithUnited Kingdom
There were 6 of us in the party and Conchi gave us a fantastic tour of the Alhambra Palace. Her knowledge is amazing and she delivers the story in such an interesting way - we were all delighted to have Conchi guiding us. She has a tremendous ability to give the broad facts, but also she gives some incredible detail that is fascinating. I would certainly recommend her to your future clients.
Kevin PennerUnited States
Very knowledgeable and friendly
Brigid BakerUnited Kingdom
Conchi was a wonderful guide to the Alhmabra. She has great historical knowledge and provides all the background you need to know to appreciate this amazing place to full effect. It was a pleasure to spend a few hours in her company. Just as you think what you have seen can't be topped, Conchi introduces the more beautiful palaces and gardens. Conchi was very helpful beforehand, arrived on time and took us to pick up our pre-booked tickets which took seconds. Highly recommended.
Elizabeth MehrenUnited States
I can't speak highly enough of our Alhambra tour experience with Conchi. When I (stupidly) failed to secure tickets in advance during the busy October season, Conchi moved mountains to get tickets for us, on just the date we wanted. Her depth of knowledge was exceeded only by her engaging personality and her passion for her topic. Conchi is a Granada native, and she knows her history. Her command of English is terrific. She is also fun to be with. We spent almost as much time laughing as we did learning.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Elisabeth!! It was my pleasure to become your tour guide in my city. It was a honor to be the tour guide of a journaliste and a writter like you and your husband. :) Thank you so much!! P.S. nobody called me .."Rock Star " before and I love it!! Conchi.
Conchi was an excellent guide. She tailored her explanations to fit our needs. Strategic in her navigation of the Alhambra to avoid the crowds and other tour groups. Knowledgeable, articulate and personable. A true local guide - she remembered our names and referred to us as her family - nice!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Australian family!! ;-) thanks!
Udo KoopmannUnited States
The tour was fantastic and our guide Conchi was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be with. Our only complaint has nothing to do with the tour itself but with trying to pick up our Granada cards. The directions (plaza Nuevo) took us to a completely different location than the correct one in the old city. We lost about 1.5 hours and almost missed our Alhambra entry time. We found out that this happens quite regularly and suggest to better clarify the pickup location # 4 to avoid such misunderstandings
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Uddo!! It was quite interesting being your tour guide..half english half German! ;-) The Granada Card can be used just with your printed sheet. But to get it in a real card must go to the office but tours by local and myself we are out of that. You must complaint against the town hall...that issue the card. There you go the link: Www.granatur. com Endlinch haben Wir eines gutes zeit zusamen gehabt :)
We did a nice tour with Conchi Fernandez Cueto, who helped us to understand the significance of the Alhambra in Spanish history, and entertained us with stories of the monument that helped us to enjoy our visit so much! Thanks to her as well for suggesting what else we might enjoy in Granada during our visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you: Christopher, Jane and Tessa. It was my pleasure to become your tour guide in The Alhambra and Granada. ..and Specially thanks to understand how I was working with my "special conditions " due to (still) my injuries in my leg. Really thank you so much!
We did two tours with Conchi in one day in Granada. She was AMAZING! She knows everything about Granada and the Alhambra. Our group was five people, all in our 30's, and we were barely able to keep up with her energy. She is also really entertaining and very funny. Conchi brought us to a great tapas bar for a lunch break to get out of the heat. Only locals, but she guided us though the menu. I don't know what we ate but it was great. Very fun and informative day. She is super!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you guys were very friendly and funny too ;-)
Christine HinkleyUnited States
Conchi was a wonderful tour guide! We toured both Alhambra and Albaicin with her on literally the hottest day of the year and yet she made it fun for us despite the uncomfortable temperatures. She is extremely knowledgeable about these sites, and even went above and beyond the call of duty to help arrange a car service for us to/from our Loja hotel. I highly recommend Conchi to anyone touring the Granada area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very very much Christine!! It was a long , hot and funny day! I will never ever forget it ☺
Maria ConcepcionUnited States
Conchi is EXCELLENT! Her love and passion for Granada and its history was repeatedly demonstrated throughout our tour. We were a group of 12 arriving from a cruise ship with very limited time. She was able to show us the fortress, the palaces and the gardens in a timely manner. She is extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained the history of the Alhambra. Our visit to Alhambra with Conchi was one of the most memorable highlights of our cruise. Thank you Conchi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you María!!! You and your family were very lovely people! I'm glad that you were able to see the whole monument during the visit.
Thomas ReinartsUnited States
Alhambra is a fantastic destination, and Conchi helped make it come to life!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Thomas! I made my best to make you feel just like another customer!! It was an "adventure" spend one day with the Reinarts. A nice day :)
Carol RobinsonUnited States
We greatly enjoyed our tour with Conchi. She was very knowledgeable, personable, and articulate. She made the Alhambra come alive as she described its history. We appreciated her accomodating our slight delay in arrival, and she was able to cover a great deal of ground during our time together.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carol!! It was nice to be your tour guide in the Alhambra!!
William CoeUnited States
We had the most wonderful time with our guide. Conchi. She made the entire day well worth the expense. We not only saw the Alhambra we got a history lesson that made the entire day truly memorable. We also learned a lot about the palace intrigue and the politics of the differing dynasties. It was well worth the investment as the company was a little more expensive but we are glad we did it. We have not used this company in the past and Conchi made us realize that we will in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much William! They let it me know!! I am glad that you enjoyed my tour! :)
We spent an afternoon at La Alhambra with Conchi and found her to be fantastic. Knowledgeable, engaging, fun and professional. Her knowledge of the history and tales of La Alhambra were fascinating, and she made our experience there so much more, making sure we saw everything. We hadn't pre booked and on contacting Conchi only a few days before we arrived she used all of her resources to secure 2 last minute tickets. Very grateful. A fantastic experience and highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sharon. You were a fantastic visitants.It's very easy to work with people like you. ;-)
John Paul G.United States
Conchi hosted a tour for my family that ranged in age from 8 to 72 and everyone enjoyed the tour. Her passion and knowledge were obvious and she did a great job of setting the tone so everyone could be included. I am very interested in history generally and she did an excellent job of guiding us through a complicated, twisting history of the palace. She was very easy to ask questions of so the tour seemed to be really personalized. An added bonus was that she directed us to a super, local restaurant.
