Eating in Granada / ComiDos, the discount card for foodies visiting Granada?
« Last post by John on October 22, 2015, 01:06:14 AM »
Do you know ComiDos, the discount card for gourmets visiting Granada?

With this card, you can get significant discounts (up to 50%) in the best restaurants of Granada associated with the program.
The discount card is for two or more people. Some restaurants will apply the discount on food, others also on drinks.

The cost of the card (16 € for 15 days) is compensated in most cases with only one meal in one of our partner restaurant.

ComiDos offers much more than substantial discounts; it is also a gourmet guide that will recommend you the best restaurants in the region of Granada: we only offer places we personally would suggest to our family or our friends.

If you are a gourmet who wants to discover the gastronomy of Granada, ComiDos will guide you and allow you to make significant savings.

What to do in Granada / Re: Guided Tours of the Alhambra - Which is the best?
« Last post by John on October 22, 2015, 12:48:48 AM »
A much cheaper and probably better option than a private guide is the audio guide.
For 4 euros you can hire a small audio device that plays commentaries as you go around.

There are about 40 numbered points at the Alhambra and when you press the number on your MP3 player device you can hear a commentary.
The production quality is high and it is just as good if not better than a real human.
You can get them from the information desk next to the ticket windows.
You have to leave your passport as security.

More info here

If you are a real cheapskate you can eavesdrop on other tour guides.
I do this occasionaly, some of the guides are good and some are very bad.

There is an excellent Virtual Walking tour of the Alhambra.  Click here

What to do in Granada / Re: Using expired credit card for Alhambra tickets.

If your credit card goes past the expiry date  before you arrive in Spain and you receive a new card from your bank, you will NOT be able to use the new card to retrieve your tickets.

If this happens, make sure to bring the expired card and email confirmation with you to Spain.

Present these at the Ticket Office in  the Alhambra. They will be able to help.

The card has to be the same one I bought my tickets with.
