Alex led an outstanding tour of Granada. He has lived and worked in the area for years, and has extensive experience in both Granada history and Granada life today. He picked us up at our hotel at the Alhambra, and we had a very nice walking tour of the Old City, the Jewish and Moorish areas, the old Gypsy and "cave" house areas. The tour flowed really well, and that allowed him to tell a really informative historical story. Alex is very personable and is English fluent. We highly recommend Alex.

Axel was very patient with our 5 person group and modified the trek based on our stamina level. He was a very interesting person to talk to and tried to get to know us in order to enrich our experience. He was very knowledgeable about the area around Granada as well as general curiosities we had about Spain. Thank you Axel for a great activity, it was enjoyed by our family!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ferreira family, thank you so much for your friendly comment and also for the enjoyable time we spent together in the mountains. Good luck for all of you !

We had a wonderful overview walking tour of Granada with Axel. He's very knowledgeable, speaks perfect English, was flexible about the starting time, is pleasant easy company and tells about the local history, sights, restaurants, etc. We started out at our hotel, walked up through the old Roma section of the city, and then down through the Centro. We'd highly recommend him!

I used to live in Sevilla and never had the opportunity to visit the famed city of Granada until our most recent vacation to the Tierra de la Roja. While Granada is known for its tapas and nightlife, it mainly known for its flamenco. Thus, we enlisted Axel to bring us to the Albayzin, which is the ancient gipsy barrio of Greater Granada and flameco capital. This area is BEAUTIFUL. Axel did an amazing job and was sure to make sure we were located in the front row for the show. We HIGHLY recommend Axel!

Tour: 4-5 hours hiking in Alpujarras, Granada, Andalucia, Spain
Date: Mar 17/13

The 4 of us had a great day hiking in the Alpujarras with Axel & Carlos. Axel had gone to a lot of trouble to suggest a range of tours and he came up with one which was just right for us. The transport arrangements worked well and the tour gave us the opportunity to experience the countryside & villages outside Granada where we were staying. The route was very varied and challenged us just enough! Axel & Carlos were good company and we had a lot of fun with them. The booking system worked well too.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter and Joyce, thanks for your nice comment. We enjoyed your company as well and hope you will have many good hikes out there. Big hugs to you and your Australian friends

Tour: Motril-Granada-Motril, Granada, Andalucia, Spain
Date: Jun 23/12

Axel was an excellent tour guide. We contacted Tours by Locals to find a person who would give us a tour and take our younger son to the Grenada airport to fly back to the US early. Axel not only took our son to the airport, he went inside to make sure he got on the correct flight. We saw the Alhambra and gypsy community. Axel knew the people and we enjoyed appetizers and drinks. He made sure to get us back to the ship and was waiting by the ship in the morning with snacks and drinks. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shutty family ! I didn't see the friendly comment until now. Thanks so much and thank you for sharing your time in Spain along with your lovely family with me. Be happy !
