Walking tours in Granada

When visiting Granada in Spain it is well worth taking one or more of the free tours offered by Walk in Granada. The guides are all knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about showing off their city. There is no need to book just simply turn up next to the fountain in Plaza Nueva at the times advertised on their website. They are advertised as free tours but is expected that you tip the guide at the end as this is how they earn their living.

The essential historical tour gives a great introduction to the city by taking your past the main sights and the guide will even point out good places to eat and drink.

The Albayzin tour takes you to the old Muslim quarter where you will find out about some of Spain's most important history.

The Sacromonte tour covers the lifestyle and history of the gypsy culture in Granada, explores the origin of Flamenco and takes you to see the best view of the whole city.

Private tours and tours of the Alhambra are also available.

Don't just take take my word for it - have a look at Tripadvisor or check their Facebook page to see what others think.
