Wonderful private trip from Seville to the Alhambra
My 12 year old daughter and I took his trip at the beginning of June. We were collected promptly from our hotel in an air conditioned MPV and driven to a recommended restaurant in Granada, with a wonderful view of the Alhambra. Robert met us at the arranged time, but as I had failed to let the waiting staff now we were on a deadline was very accommodating and told us he would return in an hour. We relaxed and enjoyed the rest of our lunch in this glorious location. Robert than collected us and walked us through the town and up to the citadel, where he proceeded to share his extensive knowledge of the history of the Alhambra and the surrounding area. Robert was an enthusiastic and friendly guide and the time flew! We were then collected at the car park and returned to our hotel. Everything was very easy and we had a wonderful day! Communication with Toma & Coe was also very good, it all went as planned. Very happy customers here and we recommend this trip to anyone staying in Seville long enough to spend a day outside of it!
