We were glad we signed up for this outing, rather than rent a car and do the driving ourselves. The guide and driver were thoroughly professional. The itinerary was well-planned and the stops were interesting. The ham and cheese sampling plus the lunch were very enjoyable.

This day trip was well-worth taking. I highly recommend it.

In my opinion the trip was great including the punctuality of the arranged pick up time and well organised. The mini bus was comfortable and the driver was clearly an expert. Not only did he know every curve but also every bump in the road and he adjusted the speed accordingly. Best of all, the guide was very knowledgeable and gave all the information in Spanish and English. I was also very lucky with my travel companions, although this is not something one can choose. The Spanish speaking travellers were making a real effort to speak slowly and clearly to me over lunch in Spanish. So, bearing in mind that a tasting session of the regional 'jamon' and later a very plentiful, nice lunch with wine and water was included in the price, it was good value for money.

Excellent one day tour.

We took the day trip through the Sierra Nevada mountains and loved it. It is a full day with us being collected from our hotel at 8.30 am and returning at about 6.30 pm but certainly well worth it. The bus winds its way up through a number of villages to Trevelez which is the highest village in mainland Spain. Each stop provided an interesting topic and the lunch was excellent. Our guide, Angela, was great and as well as being multi-lingual had a good personality. Our driver, Antonio, did a great job handling the mini-bus through the winding roads made more difficult by the bike race that was on that day.

weather cooperated after awhile. Itinerary was great , all stops were very very interesting and the lunch was awesome ! Bus was comfortable and we really bonded with all the travelers. Guide was fine - English could have been a bit more clear but it didn't mar the trip in the least.

We really enjoyed this tour - our guide was very knowledgeable and obviously loves talking about Las Alpujarras. Beautiful vistas and scenes around every curve. I would have been white-knuckled but our expert driver allowed us to enjoy the scenery. Learned a lot about the history and topography of the area. A really good lunch at a rural hotel. Many brief stops for viewing spots or to see some mineral springs, deep ravines, and old ruins. Visited 3 of the 29 hill towns but drove through several others- how they ever built in some of those locations defies gravity. Margaret and Roger

Elva n William driver were wonderful n made it a fun trip. The mountain trip is different from the city tours. We went on roads lest travelled by tourists. Visiting the ham curing property was the highlight of my trip. Visited mountain high quaint villages and learnt much about the culture and everyday life. Another memorable tripHIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We had a fantastic day exploring the stunning mountain villages that surround Granada! Our guide, Antonio, masterfully switched between English and Spanish the entire day to make sure all tour participants understood every component of the tour. One of the smoothest bilingual tours I've ever been on! It is a great balance of guided exploration and free time throughout the day. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the Alpujarras for the day--it is worth the trip!

Excellent day with Antonio our guide who was very helpful, always smiling and full of information. I would have liked a couple of stops to photo the amazing vistas. Nonetheless a good day touring to a remote and spectacular area.

We loved this tour! It was a great break from the hustle and bustle of town. Antonio, our guide, was fun, well informed and spoke excellent English. We made plenty of interesting stops for photo ops beautiful scenery and hill towns and sightseeing along the way. The high point was a lovely lunch which gave us an opportunity to talk with other guests about their native countries and travels in Spain.

The guide was excellent and the quality of the places visited outstanding. Loved the ham factory and the lunch. My husband brought along a small scooter and Michael was super in accommodating his needs. We have some fantastic pictures and enjoyed the others on the tour. Just five of us in a new van was very relaxing.

An excellent day trip from Granada if you don't have a car. The pick up worked well in the morning and we had a good group of people of many languages. We were the only primary English speakers even though the tour was listed as English. The tour guide made sure to include us in everything, and it went well. We enjoyed the ham-factory tour as this was something we had never seen before. The lunch was huge and more food than we could eat, although it was a bit late (almost 2:30pm) for us. The views are great from these small towns, and it was an enjoyable day.

This was an excellent day trip. The tour guide was great with plenty of information. We saw so many of the towns and the lunch was fun. The driver was also great as the roads are very high up. More time in the towns would have been nice but overall a wonderful trip.

The tour was worth the money. Hotel pick up was efficient and well organised. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The mountains were just amazing and the white villages picturesque. I really recomment it.

A very touristy but extremely scenic drive high up into a fascinating area. Lovely guide, huge lunch of local food - overall excellent value. Though the trip was initially cancelled due to lack of numbers, efficient voice mail alerted us to changes, and the pick-up arrangements worked perfectly.

The tour was excellent as we were fortunate to have good weather in November and the mountain tops were covered in snow.. The guide was excellent, cheerful and informative . The only negative comment was the lunch. The honeyed aubergine and melon were fine but most of the main meal was left by everyone as was the red wine. Main meal comprised of cold fried egg, sliced potato which was hard and semi cold, a sausage that was uncuttable and black pudding. This did not spoil our day as the views were spectacular, and the tapas tasting earlier on was excellent
