Julie HowardUnited States
Our group is still raving about the day spent with Frederico. We think he may be the best tour guide ever (and we have had many). His knowledge of history seems endless and he generously shared it without being preachy. He's also understands art and shared his observations. He was so generous with his time and beyond that is an all around nice guy. Don't miss an opportunity to book with Frederico if you have a chance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Julie, Thanks a million for taking the time to write this review. I really enjoyed our day and your love for the history and specially the good food ( You know why I am saying this hahaha). Lovely moments, thanks to you and your friends for the fun we had at lunch time. Best wishes.
Shari CurtisUnited States
We had a wonderful day in Granada. Federico is an outstanding guide, who provided an excellent tour of the Alhambra. He is obviously an expert in history and made the tour both informative and interesting. He also made time to accommodate our special request to visit the Royal Chapel in Granada and guided us to a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. Our group highly recommends Federico!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Shari, It was a pleasure to be with such an educated group of Friends. Your passion for history and culture made me also enjoy guiding for you. Hope to see you again to enter into more enrichening cultural discussions as we did during our tour. Best wishes for all of you. Federico
Steven HindmanOld Greenwich, CT, United States
Had a full day tour with Frederico . Initially walked around the downtown area of Granada . Walked the albacin area along the river . Frederico had an encyclopedic fund of knowledge about the history of the region . We then went to the Alhambra and had an in depth tour of the palace and the gardens.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Steven. Thank you for writing this positive review. It was a pleasure also for me to guide you through my city.. warmest regards Federico

Sushil BhardwajMonsey, NY, United States
A memorable and enjoyable day, visiting the Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens in Granada with Federico who was most informative and a fount of knowledge. This was followed by a visit to the Granada main square and Cathedral and ended the trip with delicious lunch at a restaurant frequented by locals, away from the usual touristy spots.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Suchil, Thanks for this review. It was a pleasure. I am really glad that you enjoyed the tour and the food. All the best
Federico was an excellent host and guide for my husband and I during our visit to the Alhambra. We were looking for further understanding of Spanish history, and for the context, art and architecture of the Islamic phase in particular. Our guide outlined these topics in detail and with sensitivity and enthusiasm. In addition, we enjoyed learning about the Arabic poetry of the era, the life and times of the people of the day, and the botany of the wonderful gardens. All in all, an excellent experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sheila, Thanks for this positive feedback. As I think I mentioned, the quality of a guide depends on the quality of his clients and you were definetedly one of the most educated and inquisitive people I have had the honour to guide at the Alhambra. Thanks for your interest and kindness. Hope we can meet again in the future. Kindest Regards. Federico
He has a huge knowlege in history - it ist so interessting to do the tour with Frederico
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for having trusted on my services. I appreciate the positive review. Thanks a million. Federico
Dr David R ShalinskySan Diego, CA, United States
Federico was absolutely THE BEST GUIDE! This personable, knowledgeable, well-educated historian Granadian was incredible. Our group consisted of a museum director, charge nurse, retired teacher and PhD pharmacologist. We were all amazed at Federico's breadth of knowledge and the personal way that he tailored the tour to our interests. Hands down, Federico was the best guide. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This would be a 100 Star review if possible. You will be amazed, too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello David, I feell really honoured by your kind review. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. Tours are a great oportunity for me to learn from such educated people as the four of you are. It was more than a pleasure. Hope to see you again, I am sure we will keep in touch. Warmest Regards Federico
Jeffrey GetzkinUnited States
We were picked up in Malaga in a nice Mercedes vehicle and brought to Granada for our tour. Federico did a fantastic job of explaining the history of the Muslims, Alhambra and complicated Spanish history. The tour of the Alhambra was great and informative. The tour in Granada was nice and was topped of with a wonderful lunch Federico suggested and we enjoyed getting to know him a bit better and the culture of Spain. You can't go wrong booking this tour.
Claire NelsonUnited States
I wish there were a way to give a guide a "10 Star" rating: Federico would have earned it and then some! A group of five professional historians, we had high standards for our tour and a keen interest in learning deeply about the history, art, architecture, and contemporary culture of Granada. Federico's generosity with his knowledge and insights surpassed even our wildest expectations! I can't recommend a tour with Federico strongly enough. We all fell in love with Granada that day thanks to him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Claire, It is always enrichening to enjoy a cultural day with colleagues. So much history to share and discuss that life is too short for that. As we always say, history is something not only to read on a book, It is present in our culture, gastronomy, language, traditions and even in the way we think. Let me express again my gratitude for that enrichening day also for me. Hope this day in Granada will not be our last one. Best regards. Federico
The tour was extremely good. Federico was an outstanding guide who shared his detailed knowledge of the Alhambra and the history of Moorish Spain with us in an interesting and engaging way. Probably the best tour of an historical place we have experienced - unhesitatingly Five Stars! Thank you Federico.

Richard BenefieldUnited States
Personable, intelligent, measured, considerate. We had a wonderful time with this smart and charming guide. He was mindful of the physical stresses of the tour and gave us plenty of time to stroll through the Alhambra and its magnificent gardens. Highly, highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, Thank you for taking the time to write this feedback. It is an honour to work with travellers like you two. Best wishes and I hope to find the opportunity to show you more of Spain next time you will visit us.
Vivian MontanoUnited States
We had an excellent time and really enjoyed our visit to Granada. The driver picked us up at the port where our cruise ship arrived and drove to Granada where we met our guide. Entry to the Alhambra went very smoothly , barely waited in line. You must get tickets and a guide since they limit Number of entrants every day unlike other monuments where if you wait in line for hours you might get in. We had a fantastic lunch and especially appreciated as it was his birthday. Professional and informative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vivianne, Thanks a million for your kind words. I am happy that you enjoyed the tour and the olives. Hope to see you again in Spain. warmest regards Federico
Roberto W.United States
Fantastic tour! Federico understands the history, culture, daily life, gastronomy like no other. We divided our 6 hour tour in 2 consecutive days and he did not look at his watch to stop the visit in either day — we went into almost five hours daily tours at no extra charge since he wanted to share his passion for what we were learning from him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roberto, It was a pleasure to spend two mornings with you in Granada. I like being honest and even I might have spent a bit more time than scheduled, it was my pleasure and you are being very kind considering the time for lunch as time of the tour. I must say thanks to you for not only having trusted in my services but also offered me a great lunch and conversation during our tours. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holidays. Best wishes. Federico
Ginger W.United States
My family just returned from 10 days in Spain, and our tour of the Alhambra with Federico was the highlight of our trip. He made our day fun and interesting, and he was so gracious in sharing his vast knowledge of this fascinating place.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Willian, Thank you and your lovely family for trusting in my services and for your kindness. Thank you also for takign the time to write this review. I wish you all the best. Hope to see you again in Spain. Federico
Lorraine TrainerUnited Kingdom
Absolutely excellent. Federico wonderfully passed on his deep knowledge and love of Granada and the Alhambra. Along the way we learned about geometry in the tile designs and the engineering of the fountains. He is a true gentleman kind, philosophical and thoughtful. A rare pleasure and lifetime memory.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorraine, Thanks for your kind feedback. The quality of a guide is always stablished by the quality of his travellers. It was an honour to share some of the knowledge contained on the walls of the Alhambra with such an educated people. Best wishes. Federico
Mandy AlcockUnited Kingdom
A wonderful visit and exceptional guide. The Alhambra is a fascinating and beautiful place and made all the more interesting by the amazing detail, historical and cultural insight that Federico gave. He was also very knowledgeable about Andalusia and generous with suggestions of other lesser known places to consider on our travels. We would highly recommend Federico for tours in the area
Kathleen D.New Braunfels, TEXAS, United States
Wow, just...wow! There aren't enough superlatives to describe our unforgettable day with guide extraordinaire Federico, the breathtaking Alhambra, and the enchanting city of Granada. With his expansive knowledge and engaging style, Federico truly brought to life the history, culture, and people of this fascinating place. Thank you, Federico!
Pronab (Pete) DowerahUnited States
Federico knows the ins and outs of his town. You get to hear and see more of this fabulous place that is Granada from Federico than if you decided to do it on your own. He is very knowledgable and well versed in both the history and culture of Granada.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pete, Thank you for trusting your day in Granada to me and thanks for all your kindness during and after the tour. I wish you and your lovely family nothing but the best in life. Federico
Laura HarrisUnited States
Federico was a knowledgeable, pleasant and witty guide. Our tour was excellent!
David SneedDurham, NORTH CAROLINA, United States
If you want a tour of Grenada, Federico is the man. Extreme knowledgeable, great sense of humor, and a very nice and compassionate man. All the people that work in the big attractions seem to know him and like him. He set us up for a fabulous lunch. He really works hard in making sure everyone is taken care of in the group. This guide is 5-star plus.
Marisela ChavesCosta Rica
Muy agradable el tour. Federico es muy elocuente, conoce perfectamente bien la historia de la Alhambra y España y hace el tour muy entretenido. Nos ofreció el tour fluidamente en inglés y español. Quedamos muy complacidos. 100% recomendado.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Marisela, Gracias por confiar en mis servicios. Espero volver a verles por Granada. Saludos a toda la familia. Federico
Katherine ChristensenUnited States
We were not aware that the Alhambra was often sold out 2-3 months in advance. This meant that we had waited too long to purchase entry tickets. The only entry was to have a 'tour' of some sort to see it. We were shocked to learn that all the tours were sold out as well! There was 1 left for the day we would be there, this one. Frederico was very knowledgeable about everything from plants to history, culture, architecture. It was a wonderful tour! And he was great! Thank you!
