Whenever a traveller visits a new country or city, it is always useful to have some inside knowledge.  Having suggestions and recommendations from friends or family who live in that destination can so often make a huge difference to the travel experience.

Consider us, at Granada Concierge, to be your friends and family here in Granada Province.  We love living here and, as a result, have experienced a great deal of what Andalucia has to offer.  Let us share our knowledge with you.

The PORTFOLIOS

The personalised portfolio you will receive is not an itinerary or a schedule. Our suggestions might include information on how to find a favourite beach, favourite cycling or hiking routes, who to contact to arrange a wonderful city saunter to sample some of Granada’s best tapas and wines or where to go to hear live classical music in a magical setting on a particular day.  We describe why we think a suggestion is special, and any pitfalls to consider, and then, armed with that information you, the traveller, can make your own decisions. Check out our HOW IT WORKS guide below.

We are not agents!
Our information is based on our own experiences that we feel enrich life in Andalucia.  We are independent, and work solely for our clients.  

 

our portfolio packages

Granada Concierge offers four portfolio packages as shown below. If you want to personalise your guide even further, there are a series of 'bolt-on' extras. The most flexible option is The Enhanced Portfolio, where you can have access to Ian and Andrew during your stay in Granada, should you need further information and advice. Have a browse and select the option best suited to you.

Remember you can always CONTACT US if you need more information.

PORTFOLIO

250€

GROUP curateD portfolio

Groups can be complicated, as everyone may have different needs and requirements.  Taking into account this complexity, for groups of up to 12 people, we curate a portfolio to appeal to the widest range of expectations within your group.

 

1. Choose your portfolio

Our four flexible portfolios have been designed for solo travellers and couples, families, groups or for those travellers who would like on-hand recommendations and suggestions. Here is our guide to help you decide. 

2. Order the portfolio

Once you have chosen your portfolio and received confirmation of your purchase, you will receive a short questionnaire for you to complete and send back to us which will ask for information such as travel dates, number of people, age groups, allergies etc. 

3. Consultation

Once we have received your basic information we will then contact you either by phone or email and ask a bit about the things you and/or your group generally like to do in your free time, hobbies, likes and dislikes. This is so we can understand a bit more about the type of person you are and what might appeal to you on holiday, and of course what you DON'T like! It's very informal but the more information you give us the more likely we are to create a portfolio that you will love.

4. download the portfolio

Once your portfolio is ready (please allow up to 7 days in peak season) we will send you a password-protected download link. A portfolio is an A5 sized PDF that has been designed for a smartphone or tablet. If you prefer you can print it out.  Depending on which portfolio you choose, and the recommendations we make for you, these documents will vary in length. Every portfolio contains detailed descriptions of our recommendations and suggestions, with photographs, map references and additional pertinent information.


What’s in a portfolio?

Our portfolios are designed and curated by us for you and filled with experiences that we, ourselves, have loved and that we think represent the very best of Granada and it's Province.  Through consultation with you, we try to suggest those elements that we think you will love.

The descriptions are aimed at giving you, the traveller, the information you need to make a decision, and will contain all the highlights and any pitfalls, including a host of other recommendations such as nearby cafes or a great churros bar or perhaps a shaded garden to escape the sun. 

portfolio contents

The portfolios vary, as each one is tailor-made, but will contain a minimum of:

  • A summary of the items we have chosen for you to discover during your visit

  • A detailed description of each destination outlining specific things that you should look out for such as the best spot for a photograph, menu recommendations, best tables to sit at or tips to get the best deals. 

  • Essential information such as the best visiting times, drive times from Granada, opening hours, entry fees etc.

  • An interactive map of the region that will plot every destination including your accommodation and any other points of interest we think may be relevant. We will be using the latest what3words location technology to make sure that you not only reach your location but find the best spot or viewpoint within the nearest 3 meters. To find out more about what3words see below.

  • Language glossary and colloquial terms that will help you get the best from the visit.

THE PORTFOLIOS ARE NOT ITINERARIES OR SCHEDULES

We will not give you day-to-day breakdowns - you are too independent for that!  We may suggest the best times of day for certain experiences, and will tell you how much time to allow to enjoy a certain activity, but other than that you are free to pick and choose at your leisure.

WHAT3WORDS LOCATION TECHNOLOGY

What3words is a very simple and very accurate location app that is perfect for pinpointing specific locations, particularly in countries where postcodes can be ambiguous (such as Spain!). Using the technology, we can highlight very particular places, down to a specific table in a restaurant, for example, that we think will enhance your visit. 

To use this you must first download the app which you can do for FREE here

Once you have downloaded this app you can then use the what3words map and 3 words locations that we provide in your portfolio.

Visit the What3words website for more information.

GC Portfolio Personal CVR.jpg

Following an initial consultation with you, we compile your personal portfolio of five things that we think you should do during your stay in Granada.  This portfolio will take into account the number of days you expect to stay here, whether or not you have transport, your likes and dislikes and your expectations. There is no schedule or timetable, but we might suggest that a particular place is best seen at a specific time of the day.  We may indicate how much time you will need to set aside to enjoy a destination to its fullest, and we won't be afraid of highlighting any pitfalls.  By having the right information, we believe you will have the most fun!  As well as our very personal overview, we will supply useful information that you might need - where to buy tickets, restaurants that might tempt you, public transport that you can use.

BEST FOR: solo travellers and couples.

GC Portfolio Family CVR.jpg

Our Family Portfolio is very similar to the Personal Portfolio, but we take into account the very specific and, often, different expectations and requirements that make up the family dynamic. From personal experience, we know that children and teenagers may have absolutely no interest whatsoever in a stunning view, but they may be thrilled to run around a deserted castle dating from the 13th Century, learn how to play the percussive cajon that accompanies the full-blooded flamenco performance, or participate in a race around villages to try and win their weight in oranges as their first prize.

BEST FOR: Families of up to 6 people

GCPortfolio Enhanced CVR.jpg

We are passionate about Granada, and this is our flagship portfolio.  If you are here for longer than a few days, or if you have very specific requirements, we can go that little bit further.  Whilst we aim to cover as much as we can in our personal portfolios, there is nothing like a good chat with friends to find out exactly what you should and shouldn't do when you are on holiday.  We can arrange to meet you for a coffee at any time during your stay (within reason!), and just go through your portfolio with you to make sure you don't miss out on a thing.  Alternatively, we can be contacted via Whatsapp so you can ask us any pertinent questions as and when you need an answer.  For example, you might be in some mountain village and need a recommendation for a place for lunch - just send us a message and we will help. 

This portfolio is available to solo travellers, couples and families only.

GC Portfolio Group CVR.jpg

Groups can be difficult to manage, when you take into account the many different requirements, likes and dislikes. We have heard of one poor group of visitors that was taken to the Albaicin area of Granada and left there to wander for 6 hours! The Albaicin, lovely as it is, does not warrant a 6-hour visit. As well as preparing a portfolio to cater for the widest range of group tastes, we will also arrange to meet the group 'leader' when the group arrives to go through the portfolio in detail and make suggestions that will provide the best possible options for everyone in the group. We will take into account logistics, practicalities and timescales to make the visit to Granada the best it possibly can be.

BEST FOR: groups of between 8 - 12 travellers. If you have a larger group and would like a portfolio, please contact us with your specific requirements.
