Really great walking tour exploring the Albaicín and Sacromonte neighbourhoods with Ramon (our guide). Ramon provided great commentary on the background and History of Granada. In particular, he did a great job unpacking the history of Flamenco and answered all our questions about it! Would definitely recommend this tour if you’re coming to explore Granada!
