As I said about yesterday's tour, Alvaro is a wonderful guide. And today, with Granada, he has proved himself once again, so much so that I could list 171 reasons to book him as a guide, if I had room here. His English is fluent and easy, his humor always ready, his knowledge of Spanish, Moorish, Jewish and Catholic history is encyclopedic. And he is a Hell of a nice guy with whom spending a day is very comfortable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martin, Only 171 reasons ?? ;) I wish you all the very best . I’m sure we will meet again in the future . I will you all the best Álvaro

WOW! What a GREAT day we spent with Alvaro. What a fabulous tour guide!! Two "senior" couples from US spent the day with him. He picked us up at our hotel, gave us a quick overview of the day, and we were off. We rode from Seville to Granada and back. It was a long drive, but we feel we got an education along the way. We can't say enough about his organization, his knowledge, his perfect English, and his great sense of humor. (And he was a SAFE driver, too!) Don't miss the Alhambra - you won't regret it
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Claudia, Thank your so much for your Beautiful review. Pls, come back soon !! :) Best wishes Alvaro

Alvaro provided an excellent, customized 2-day tour from Seville to Granada and Cordoba for me and my daughter. He went out of his way to make the trip memorable and to address our special interests in each location. He was a very knowledgeable and enjoyable guide to work with. He also provided valuable assistance with our travel plans after the tour and went out of his way to make sure that our trip to our next destination would proceed without difficulty.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lois ,ñthank you very much for your beautiful review. I'M sufre you will come back soon to The unique Andalusia ! I wish you and your daughter All The very Best. Greetings from Seville. Álvaro

We were staying in Sevilla and decided we could not miss the Alhambra. This was a perfect way to visit while not staying there. Alvaro was very knowledgeable and informative. The Alhambra is not to be missed while visiting this region. The only caveats I would add are 1) I felt that we paid more than stated on the ticket or on the internet for that matter (even for "skip the line"), and we still don't quite understand the explanation as to why, (2) we felt a bit rushed. In general, a worthwhile trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Maria, Unfortunately, tour guides cannot purchase the Alhambra tkts directly (Alhambra has very strict rules) , so You paid this a little bit more than the 'official rates' as I must get them trough an Official Travel Agency who add commissions . I'm very sad to see that you felt rushed but this is an intense 10/11 hours tour which includes several driving hours , the visit to three 'cities' (Old town Granada, Albaicin Quarter and the whole Alhambra complex)... Thanks for your review Best wishes Alvaro

Our second tour with Álvaro was wonderful. We saw Granada and were amazed by it's rich beauty and history. You must see the Alhambra Palace to believe it. Amazing!! The activity level was high as we walked uphill a lot. The heat can zap your energy quickly but we were lucky not to have the triple digit temperatures that summer brings. With Álvaro we did not have to wait in any long lines to enjoy this exciting place.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Krista , I was great to me to share those days with you and Eugene ! 1000 Thanks Best wishes Álvaro

Alvaro's tour to Granada was packed with good information about everything. We first toured the old city as he pointed out the architecture, art, and customs of the Moors. He is so well-versed in the culture and history, and he relates it so vividly, that It's an education to be with him. By the time we reached Alhambra, our stamina was spent; be prepared to traverse hills and stairs at a steady pace! We slowed him down, but he was patient. For the sturdy traveler, Alvaro is the man to guide you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, Thank You very much for your wonderful review . Say 'hola' from me to Carol and Vianne. I wish You All The BEST. Álvaro
James Glenn SnodgrassUnited States
It is not easy to spend 10 hours in a car and on a tour with 6 strangers, but Alvaro pulled it off easily. Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful - he made this day trip to Granada and a visit to the remarkable Alhambra go so comfortably. He went above and beyond - by making reservations for us at a flamenco performance at the Flamenco Museum, which was wonderful. We will recommend him anytime to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Glenn, Thank you son much for your beautiful words !!! It was also great for me to show you the beauty of Seville ! Take care and keep exploring the world Best Álvaro
Dana FinkelsteinUnited States
Another amazing tour of Granada with Alvaro! He is the most wonderful, knowleable guide and was able to intuitively adapt to the needs of our group. A special stop in Osuna for a Game of Thrones tour of the Mereen fighting pit (a real bull ring) was an extra special treat. I will never forget Alahambra and the special part of Granada, in the St. Nicolas section he guided us to. A day for the ages. My family will never forget.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dana , Thank you so much for you review. It was very nice for me to share that special day with your family . I hope you'll come back soon. All the best Alvaro
Our group of 6 people joined Alvaro for a 4 days private tour in Andulacia. Alvaro is an excellent guide with wealth of local knowledge in history, culture, people and food. All the attractions and restaurants he recommended are amazing. He is always on time and flexible to meet our schedule. We learned a lot about Spain.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jenny, Thank you so much for your wonderful review ! It was my pleasure to show you The wonderful Andalusia and taste The Andalusia flavours . Hope yo See you soon in Hong Kong !! ;) Best Alvaro
Maureen FitzgeraldUnited States
Our family of 6 spent a day with Alvaro visiting Granada from Sevilla which was the highlight of our trip. Alvaro is so knowledgeable and an absolute joy to spend time with. I can't believe how much my husband and I and our children ages 6 to 13 learned about Granada, Spanish culture and life style. Alvaro also took us to lunch at a place we would never have found and ordered local dishes that we all enjoyed thoroughly. I can't recommend Alvaro strongly enough - he was fabulous!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maureen, Thank you so much for your wonderful review ! It was really my pleasure to spend that Day with your beautiful Family. I won't forget you. All the Best. Alvaro

Alvaro was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to be around. We were traveling as a group of 12 (5 adults and 7 kids), the kids ranged from 13 - 4 and Alvaro managed to make the experience pleasant for all. I highly recommend him and this trip. We booked a total of 3 days with him: A Sevilla walking tour, a granada day trip from Sevilla and a Cordoba day trip. Every trip was amazing!

Jo Ellen McKenzieUnited States
Alvaro was vey prompt on picking us in Seville and driving us to Granada. During the 2-1/2 hour drive he provided us with a lot of great information about Andalucia. In Granada he took us on a walking tour of the city and we stopped at a local bar for the best tapas we've had since arriving in Spain. He arranged for an expert guide to tour us through the Alhambra which was a fantastic experience. We all enjoyed the day and I would highly recommend Alvaro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jo, Thanks for your great review! Pls, SAY 'HELLO' from me to your wonderful Family. All the Best. Alvaro
Excellent and most enjoyable day from Sevilla. An outstanding and kind guide who showed us some marvellous cafes for morning and afternoon tea, and a wonderful tapas restaurant. Alvaro has wonderful insights into local treats beyond the large tourist attractions and we would have no hesitation in recommending him for tours in Seville and beyond. We had an unforgettable day in Granada and hope to see him again for another tour soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger and Carol, thank you very much for your Great review. I hope to meet you again in the future! Best wishes and take Care. Alvaro
Alvaro was an incredible guide, he was prompt in picking us up, extremely knowledgeable and informative in the drive to Granada. We had a very thorough tour of the Alhambra and then he took us to a local tapas bar where he ordered the traditional tapas lunch for us. After that we had a walking tour of the old town and he gave us so much information. The drive back was filled with lots of info also, he is highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sheila, thank you so much for your review! :) It was a great pleasure to be with you during your stay in the beautiful Andalusia. Best wishes. Alvaro
