It was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to be in the company of Daniele. He is so knowledgable and passionate that it was so inspiring to all of us. He was able to describe with such detail and passion everything about the city, and provided insightful context into why things were constructed in a certain way and why various inscriptions were written. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Faris, Thank you so much for visiting us. It was my pleasure to be wandering in the Alhambra and in the historic heart of Granada with you and your friends. Thank you again. Daniele

Daniele was a truly wonderful tour guide. He was incredibly informed on The Alhambra and explained very clearly each aspect of the tour we were experiencing. All 5 of us agree we could not have gotten a better guide!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, Thank you so much for your comment. I hope to see you very soon in Granada and Andalusia, to discover more hidden treasures. Thanks again and greetings to your family and friends! Daniele

Daniele G. spent the day with us in the Alhambra. Despite the cold and the rain, which he could not control, it was beautiful and fascinating. He was able to walk us around the crowds and find quiet areas to explain the history about the Moors and their architecture, writings, life styles and glory. He took us through the town, market, recommended a wonderful place for lunch and got us back to the ship on time. It was a great day in spite of the weather, thank you Daniele.

Daniele led our group of six friends on a fascinating tour of the Alhambra. His knowledge of the site, it's history and the significance of the palace and site was exceptional. We all learned so much and came away with a much better understanding of the significance of the Alhambra. We would all certainly recommend seeing this amazing place and Daniele was the perfect guide for it.

Our rating for Daniele was a 5. He is extremely knowledgeable about Islam traditions and culture and his ability to read Arabic have extra dimension to the tour of Alhambra. He also helped us avoid crowds and see some local Granada places.

On September 18 my husband and I had a tour in Granada with Daniel. He was probably one of the best guides we ever had. He is so knowledgable and is willing to share this information with us. We were very happy that we chose Daniel and would recommend him to anyone!

Daniele was fantastic. His depth of knowledge about Granada in general and the Alhambra in particular was amazing. He speaks a number of languages including Arabic which is very enlightening when visiting the Alhambra. He also has a deep love for his home, Grenada , and it is apparent in the tour we took of the city. We highly enjoyed our time with him and fully recommend him.

I did this tour for my parents. Daniele is knowledgeable. He also shows balance between respect towards the sacredness of Alhambra as a historical monument, and the reality/shadow side of the history. I chose him as he is able to share with us the meaning of the inscription.

We were completely spoiled by our tour of the Alhambra with Daniele and wouldn't want to have any other guide. His seemingly infinite wealth of knowledge about the place, and especially his ability to literally read the palace walls, reciting the beautiful Arabic poetry, made it come alive. We appreciated his ability and willingness to talk about history in sophisticated and subtle terms. He was perceptive, noticing our interest in history, and responding accordingly. Generous, thoughtful, and witty.

If you are in Granada and would like to take a tour of the Alhambra, pick Daniele G. We are independent travellers who hire guides around the wolrd as we like the intimacy of a private tour. Daniele G. speaks perfect English. He also speaks Arabic and Spanish perfectly and will provide you with very detailed information about The Alhambra and the history and culture gong back thousands of years. He's passionate about his work and you will find him an absolute delight! You will learn a lot and have fun too

Daniele is an incredible guide. Our afternoon with him gave us thorough insight to the past glories of Islamic Granada and the dazzling sensory splendors of the Alhambra. He helped us imagine what was there and no longer is, and with his command of Arabic helped us understand the embedded calligraphy of the endlessly decorated walls and ceilings of the palaces. He's smart with a sly sense of humor. For travelers who want a sophisticated tour with the details of history, he's the guy.

Daniele is as good a guide as you'll get. Perfect English, but also speaks and reads Arabic which is so useful at this site. And he's very funny. Use him without any hesitation!

Daniele has a very interesting history himself and clearly is an expert in the history of not only Granada but of Spain and particularly the impact that Moors had on Spain. He guided our group through little known (to outsiders) but very beautiful streets of Granada. I have visited Granada three other times, but this was the first time I had seen the historical streets that Daniele showed our group. I would highly recommend him for others tour groups.

A mixed group of travellers were guided around the Alhambra by a man with in-depth knowledge of the site, Daniele brought to life the Palace and all the surrounding areas. Never looked at a guide book and answered all our questions with ease. He has an exceptional knowledge of his subject and a relaxed manner in which he delivered an informative and pleasurable tour. Thank you very much. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone visiting Granada and the Alhambra.
