Hello! My name is Juana, but at the end of the tour my clients call my Juanita, my friendly name. I am an official guide of Granada and the Alhambra and I have been working in this fantastic profession since 2016. I work for my own agency, so I offer myself as a direct contact for all visitors coming to Granada. I always do small group to keep a high quality. Now we are a team of 5 guides, and my amazing partners are: Elena (perfect english), Carmen (high level of charisma), Javier (perfect sense of humor) and Francisco (professional and a walking book). I think you will love them, because in the end, what we have in common, apart from this profession, is a sense of humor.

Tour description

For this tour, the purchase of Alhambra tickets is not required, we access all the public monuments inside and outside the complex, such as the Palace of Carlos V.

The great demand that the monumental complex has makes our visitors, on many occasions, leave Granada without visiting it. With this tour around the Alhambra you will get to know some corners of this essential place for all who visit Granada.

On this visit we will get to know the Alhambra and its surroundings, accessing with our guides the public spaces that are offered to us, where we can enjoy many of its corners and gardens. Its wonderful views will serve as a framework to learn about the fascinating history and disturbing legends of the monumental complex. We will visit an old hammam or steam bath and an artisan inlaid workshop, one of the oldest artisanal techniques that we still preserve.

We will also know a great collection of medieval pieces excellently preserved in the beautiful Archaeological Museum of the Alhambra, through which we will understand the meaning of ancient Al-Andalus. In the Palace of Carlos V we will see how he wants to capture the triumph of his great empire.

Do not stay without seing her!

Carmen has véry good knowledge of the history of Granada. This was only her second tour in English, although she has obviously done a lot of tours in Spanish. Her English is actually quite good, and she was easy to understand
