    Not a good company to tour with
    Stephen_H
    , Sep 2021
    Our Spain trip started off rough with the return airline no longer flying on the date we booked our tickets for. This caused collisions on our itinerary that needed to be hashed out as our trip was now shorten. It took many attempts to contact anyone at visitours to see if we could get our trip date moved back 2 days. Finally, we heard back and the trip was ago for a new day. We had a tour with visitours the day before that never happened, so I reached out to get better clarity on where our pick up was, what time it was and what kind of vehicle it would be. Pablo gave us a prompt response and we were set. The description of the pickup point was at the entrance of the parking garage. This was problematic before because there was no place for a vehicle to park. We arrived early and the large black bus rolled up exactly at the time offered. For clarity, the pickup point is not at the entrance, but rather at the bus stop 200 feet away from the entrance to the parking garage. What I found strange, we were informed that it was the entrance, which the family from Mexico was told the bus stop. Regardless, but driver was on time, COVID protocols were in place the bus was clean. The drive is rather a long one, so know that your only biobreak will be 2.5 hours or so. For us, we stopped in front of a restaurant and informed their washrooms were for our use. Seems that there were only three stalls in the women’s bathroom, one of which didn’t work and another that was completely disgusting! The good working toilet had no seat. As they describe in the info of the tour, you will be dropped off and handed a map of the city, it happens as described. You not notified prior to stopping. The driver spoke good English and pointed out a few things and was very clear on the pickup time and location. Other than stopping for lunch, the city didn’t offer much to see. We were picked up promptly and went to Alhambra. We got off the bus and the driver got on the phone calling the guides. The first guide showed up and lots of confusion broke out as he started speaking French. The French speakers were pleased, but the rest of us had no clue what was going on and if we had booked the wrong language. Then another guide showed up and passed out headsets. Once we put the headsets on, we noticed the guide as only speaking Spanish! Again, the English-speaking group was concerned. After several long minutes, the guide stopped speaking Spanish and explained that this would be a Spanish/English tour! We were completely unaware that this was how the tour was going to be and throughout the tour it was spoken in 70% Spanish & 30% English. Due to the limited English spoke & the crackling headsets, most of us just stopped listening. The guide has a lot of distance to cover in a rather small amount of time, so kept a rather vigorous pace. With my back, this was problematic, but fortunately the Spanish group that was with us seemed to be lingering behind me so I could keep up. The guide would probably be great if he only had one language to speak, but that was not the case. The tour was a wash for me; we would not recommend it for any of our friends or families and will not tour with this company again. The two-star rating was for the bus driver who did a great job!

    Alhambra is awesome - tour was disappointing

    For a 12 hr trip from Seville - getting a very rushed 2.5 hrs through Alhambra was disppointing. The guide rushed us through. We didn't get any opportunity to take pictures. Even in the 2.5 hrs the tour was bi-lingual. Even during his Spanish narration we were rushing thru halls - too fast to pause and take any pics. Go to Alhambra on your own. Avoid taking the tour.

    Great Day Trip

    For some reason this tour has gotten a lot of poor reviews, but let me tell you - they are unfounded. It's a LONG day yes, but its worth it if you only have one day and want to see the Alhambra. Do note that the pickup time is closer to 5am, not 7am as advertised, but you also make it back to Seville around 5:30pm. That is insanely early, BUT, the bus is dark and comfy with almost fully reclining seats, so settle in and sleep until the breakfast stop. This also means you get to the Alhrambra early enough before it gets too crowded. Angel, the tour guide is fantastic in both English and Spanish. Then its free time and lunch on your own in Grenada. Get yourself some churros con chocolate and then take a nice siesta n the bus back. What else could you ask for?

    Dear visitor, This is exactly how we see the tour. A long day, yes, but definitely worth it. You just have to get on the bus and our driver will drive you safely to Granada. We do not have everyday the same hour of visit, so sometimes you can leave Seville later. We are happy that you enjoyed visiting this great monument and we hope to see you again in Andalucía !!

    We knew the travel time was long. The visit to Alhambra was very rushed. We wished there was some scheduled free time after the guided tour. We could have some free time in the palace on our own if not for the bus being late in the morning.

    Dear visitor, Everyone wish to spend a lot of time in this marvellous monument. As described in our product, this tour offers a 3hours visit in the Alhambra and 2 hours of free time in the center of Granda, where you can visit for example the Cathedral. As the entrance is very controlled, you can not visit freely the monument with these tickets that only works with an official guide. The Alhambra has very specified rules. We think that visiting this monument without a guide is a waste. We are glad that you envjoyed it and hope that you will come back to Andalucía !

    We were really looking forward to this trip but ended up far from happy with it... Our tour guide was to slack with the timing that people had to be back from. First stop to get some breakfast ended up waiting for some people so we were a little late, then we arrived to Alhambra and that was fun to see. Finished that on time and were to meet our bus driver and guide at the parking lot at 11:45, every one was there except two older spanish ladiesfriends that apparently got ''lost'' so we had to wait for them for like 30 min and then they finally showed up. Next stop was downtown Granada for some ''free time'' that got shortened because we had to wait for those women, our guide literally threw us out of the bus told us to meet them there again in 2 hours and left. No map give, no places recommended, no nothing, no one been there before and most of us spoke nothing in spanish so the group stumbled forward to find some lunch to eat and maybe see something if there was something to see. But no ! Most restaurants were closed,most shops were closed so we ended up going somewhere with nasty food and just waiting for the bus to come back and get us. Now the bus is back, everybody on board except the SAME OLD LADYS like last time !!! The other people wanted to just leave them and wondering why the guide wasn't harder on the timings but no we waited for them in a hot bus for almost an hour, trying to call them on their phones and so on but nothing, finally they showed up and our guide was like aww sorry for the wait folks but now we have to skip the next thing we were going to stop and go see so we are just heading back to Seville .... Third stop that I dont think was even planned, just the bus driver and guide hungry I guess, was at a bus stop with small cafe/shop and the stop was suppose to be 20 min. Just went and got ice cream and waited for us to leave again, then finally its time and again everybody on the bus except one of the Spanish lady, she was just in the store using the time to charge her phone or something so the Guide had to literally go in and get her so we could all go back to Seville, and the whole bus ride back yapping loudly on her phone and whatnot driving the rest of us mad.... I swear me and my partner couldn't leave that bus fast enough ! I recommend people just order from other company or drive them selves up and see the Alhambra, seeing Alhambra was the only good thing out of this trip.

    Dear Eva, Your experience comment, as unpleasant as it seems, is only about the delay of two people on the tour. We don´t have power on other people puncuality unfortunately. The guide always gives the meeting time and hours. We are a quality service agency, we don´t leave people on on tours, even if you are right, these two person were very late. We feel very sorry about this trouble caused by something that somehow is out of our hands. The stops on the way and back are announced by the guide and are normal on the 3 hours drive. It allows you to go to the restroom and grab a coffee. We hope that you enjoyed at leat the great Alhambra. Best regards.
