Carlos, un auténtico crack. Hemos ido toda la familia a hacer el free tour y ha entretenido tanto a jóvenes como a mayores. Una excelente capacidad de explicar la historia de Granada de forma clara, concisa y divertida. Llegamos un poco tarde por no poder aparcar y estuvo muy pendiente de facilitarnos en todo momento cómo y dónde encontrarnos. También comentar que al vernos preocupados por haber aparcado el coche en Zona Azul, al terminar el free tour, recibimos un mensaje suyo con información sobre las normativas de Zona Azul en Granada. Se nota que disfruta ayudando a la gente. ¡Lo recomiendo encarecidamente y espero volver a cruzar nuestros caminos pronto!
