7 reviews for Granada Day Trip

    My husband and I had the best time on our day trip to Granada! Jose was an amazing guide – he showed us local tapas spots and many incredible places and viewpoints throughout Granada. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the day a lot of fun! We quickly sensed his passion for both Seville and Granada. He left us with a detailed map of Seville to use during the rest of our stay, with recommendations customized just for us. Some reviews said this is a very long trip to do in a day, but I think the pace of the day was perfect and we saw a lot! I would highly recommend this tour.

    We had our wonderful tour guide Miguel pick us (5 friends and myself) up at our AirBnB with no problem. There was a small mix up with the pick up time but Not Just A Tourist was very quick to respond to me the night before (pretty late at night) with the correct times.

    The trip is LONG … tiring and TOTALLY WORTH IT! Granada and La Alhambra are the finest examples of Moorish art work anywhere in Spain!

    We stopped at a lovely road side restaurant for a quick breakfast complete with cute, friendly cats to pet! Then we drove through the countryside and saw a million olive trees. Miguel answered all of our questions and was very informative along the way.

    Once we arrived in Granada we got a private tour of the city and hiked up to the best view points to see La Alhambra. Afterwards we stopped in a local favorite place for traditional tapas. Miguel ordered for us so we could enjoy the finest food! It was a treat and delicious!

    We were then dropped off at La Alhambra for our skip the line guided tour. So breathtaking and wonderful …. words cannot describe the experience.

    Miguel met us afterwards to drive us back to Seville … we slept most of the way.

    I recommend this company completely for a great trip and a great experience!

    My husband, 2 daughters (20 and 21) and I did a wonderful day trip from Seville to Granada (Alhambra and Granada town walk) with guide Jose and driver Juan. Although we booked a group tour we were the only ones so had a private tour!
    It’s a long day but was totally worth it. This was largely due to our delightful guide Jose. He treated us more like friends than clients. He was knowledgable, caring and considerate. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I wish all tours were this good.

    Our compliments go out to Miguel, our guide, and Juan, our driver. They made our day go very smoothly and the entire day, although very long, was entirely enjoyable. Miguel was very eager to cater to our dietary needs as vegetarians (not as easy as it is in other areas) and kept our 3 teens entertained by engaging them in practicing their Spanish. He was extremely accommodating, friendly, and had a passion for facts and history. We had no idea he was new to the travel industry! Having come a long distance but with relatively short time to tour, we were determined to see Granada/Alhambra and Miguel made sure that we did this trip justice.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our private day trip from Seville to Granada! Jose, our guide, was extremely personable, upbeat and knowledgeable and absolutely catered to our interests. Juan is very friendly and a capable and competent driver, We definitely got the most out of our day and left Seville/Granada with a most memorable experience. The tour company also graciously accommodated a travel glitch that we encountered during our time in Spain. We would definitely book another tour with this company!

    We were on the fence about taking this tour because it would be such a long day but decided to take it so our kids could see the Alhambra. The day didn’t seem long at all. Our guide, Javi, was great and we had a training guide there too and the driver Juan so it was like a party. The guide they used for the Alhambra was great too. We saw so much and our two teenage girls said the trip was “totally worth it”

    The whole transfer trip from Seville to Granada was fantastic. We requested for a short visit at Ronda to see its beautiful gorge and we love it! Our tour guide, Javier was knowledgable, helpful and accommodating throughout the whole trip.

    Would definitely recommend them to those who are planning to visit Spain!
