Ernest was a very friendly and knowledgable tour guide. He knows his wildlife and animals and history of the Sierra Nevada. The views are spectacular. I was hoping that we would go up to 3500 metres but went up to 2500 meters. Definitely worth the money when you get to see Mother Nature that close up.

This tour was definitely the highlight of my trip to Granada! Jaime is so enthusiastic and caring that it's impossible not to have a great time. The Sierra Nevada is breathtaking but exploring it in a 4wd takes it to another level. It's worth every penny! Gracias, Jaime!

Initially I wasn't sure of the trip very much to be honest...but our guide made our day.. he was so so so great in all aspects...he gave enough time explaining about all the details... showed us an enchanting sunset just in time and even gave us free snacks along with drinks (snacks wasn't included in the trip though)... a must do once in Granada...would love to do it again in some winter

We made the trip on the end of the day, which was a good choice in august. Beautiful nature, nice viewpoints, and impressive tour. Ernst was a confident driver, which helps on the small roads; and gave a lot of information about the environment. We had a good time, saw animals and birds on our way. Nice small group.

We had a very good day in the Sierra Nevada the guide was very good and obviously loves the area. He was very happy to stop if we wanted to take photo's. The size of the group (8 adults) was just right. We also booked the meal which was also very good. Would recommend this trip to see a different side to any holiday in Granada.

Surprisingly one of the best times during our trip and probably because Miguel was our tour guide. His patience and appreciation of questions, nature, and explanation made the whole trip come alive. We tasted the natural springs and apples. Saw olive trees, chestnut trees, granada's and mountain goats. And of course, the views were unimaginable. One of the best experiences!

I just had this tour last week and promised Miguel to give a review. So here it goes... This was by far the best tour I had in my Andalusia trip last week. I was travelling solo and met a few travellers doing this on the day as well. It was definitely worth it. Absolute sceneries, loads of fruit picking, and a very informative tour. You will learn a lot about Sierra Nevada and its history. All praise goes to Miguel who was superbly great all through out. This is highly recommended so if I were you, I would go for it.

This tour was incredible! It was very cool to go off road to explore the mountains. Every now and then we would stop to enjoy the scenery and learn about the local plants and wild life. Our guide, Miguel, was great! - very friendly and knowledgeable. He made us feel comfortable and safe while driving off road. The view, when we reached the top, was breath taking and the dinner at the restaurant was very tasty! On the way back Miguel stopped so we could enjoy the sunset over the mountains. I recommend this tour, Sierra Nevada is beautiful.

We were picked up at our hotel on time before picking up 4 more guests at two different locations . Our driver and guide Jaime was very friendly and informative. We stopped on a number of occasions to admire the views and take photographs. It was a nice sunny but windy day . As we traveled higher into the Sierr Nevada we suddenly entered an area with a great deal of snow which was a nice surprise. After a walk around the ski resort and a welcome drink we set off again enjoying once more the views and wildlife , eventually stopping off for a late lunch which was lovely .We had a fantastic day spent in very good company with our fellow guests and Jaime , before returning to our hotel . Definitely recommend this tour if you are visiting Granada . Make sure you take some warm clothing as it can. Be chilly in the mountains .

This was a highlight from our time in Granada. Jaime was a wonderful guide and a true lover of nature. Jaime took us offroad and managed some very skilled driving but we always felt completely safe. I highly recommend this tour for spectacular views, an authentic non-touristy experience, and a great opportunity to get out into nature.

We had a lovely day out with Jamie. Our fellow travellers were all nice and we enjoyed both the views over the mountains and lunch at the highest point in the Sierra Nevada.

Incredible trip! Jamie was really knowledgeable and experienced as a guide, as well as a fantastic driver. The views were breathtaking- definitely a recommended tour. Do note that a bit of uphill walking is needed, and that it can get chilly at 2500m altitude with the winds, so do bring a jacket!
