Taxi / tour guides from Granada airport

We're going to Granada next week and even allowing for time to collect our luggage, get to town, etc, we'll be arriving 4 hours before we can check in -- a little too much time to spend at a cafe. Thankfully we'll be able to drop off our bags. Has anyone had experience asking cabbies for a tour of the city, and what we could expect to pay? Not looking for anything formal, just something to take up some time. After arriving from Chicago we won't be up for a full-on walking tour. Thanks for your help.

I really don't consider Granada as being right for a taxi or anyone else to take you around on a driving tour. It's a city made for walking, up and down hills, or taking public transportation. Too bad you didn't ask you hotel for an early checkin, but once you drop of your luggage, you can head up to the Parador (bus 30 or 32) for a late breakfast or early lunch.

Or head for Plaza San Nicolás for lunch (www.restaurantesannicolas.com/en/) and the views. The restaurant opens at noon.

Thanks, Robert. We may just be forced to enjoy ourselves, walking, stopping at cafes for tea/coffee/wine, etc!!! I asked for an early check-in, but it's a small place and booked the night before, so we'll just have to wait and see.
