My husband bought the private tour ahead of time knowing that we would want to ask questions and to avoid the lines. We were not disappointed!

First, GranaVision helped us find our ticket reservation. Working with my husband through email and chat on their website, they searched for the tickets since we had a typo in the email and hadn’t received the confirmation. We are so grateful for that extra time and energy since we would’ve missed out on a truly remarkable experience.

Our tour guide, Juan Do(mingo), met us and from the start we learned so much about the history and culture of ancient Spain. Because Juan works closely with the site, he understood all the checkpoints and planned out the tour so we could maximize the time. We sailed through each point with our guide and tickets. Because Juan is fluent in multiple languages, it was possible to ask questions and to see how he easily navigated through moments which would’ve been difficult for our survival-level-Spanish family.

Starting at the palace, we were mesmerized by the history, art and culture still beautifully preserved after hundreds of years. Juan shared large and small pieces of information about the Kings of Nazar, political moments like when Queen Isabella met with Columbus, and the dynamics of an Islamic kingdom then conquered by a Christian one. Juan’s stories and information helped to paint vivid pictures as we walked through each area of the site. Our 12-yo son was thoroughly engaged by the stories and felt comfortable asking questions. Juan also asked to adjust sensitive content as appropriate for our son’s age-level, which was very kind and respectful.

Overall, we were so grateful for the experience made possible by Juan Do and GranaVision! I could go on, but would recommend you book a tour with GranaVision and ask for JuanDo. It was completely worth the ticket price to be given a more personalized window into an amazing historic place like Al Alhambra. Thank you!!

The trip was beyond our expectations. Our guide Hamdi Tawfiq was very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. He really enjoyed what he was doing. He made our trip more enjoyable. Despite having an infant with us, the trip went very smoothly.
The weather in end of December was superb in Andalusia.
They don’t allow strollers in Alhambra but they offer baby carriers.

We were fortunate enough to have Guillermo as our guide. It was a wet, rainy day but Guillermo was positive and engaging. He asked thought provoking questions and supplied us with a unique glimpse into the Alhambra’s past. I really felt like I was there with the Sultan and his family amongst the invading Christensen. This is why having a great guide can make all the difference. Enlightening—even on a rainy day.

Our guide was knowledgeable and humorous. We were disappointed to find that he was giving the tour in two languages, though. It was not enjoyable to have to listen to German interspersed with English. Since he divided his time between the two languages, we felt like we did not learn as much as we could have. We would not have done the tour if we had known this was going to happen.

We took a private tour with our family of 4 and were guided by "Gus". We were welcomed at Granavision correctly en could start the tour quickly. Gus has really a lot of knowledge about everything we visited. He listened to us and adapted the tour to our wishes. His Spanish accent in his English storytelling was amusing and he has a good sense of humour. Perfect to skip the lines, and to move on where desired, so we could visit just the places we wanted within a resonable time. We would certainly recommand this private tour!

Very glad that we booked a tour, as the Alhambra only allows a limited amount of guests per day so it was comforting to know we would be able to go without the at-the-door tickets selling out. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we got to see all of the complex/palaces and the entire gardens too. Fantastic experience!
