About
Granada’s Alhambra limits its daily visitor numbers, so booking ahead is advisable. Plus, exploring the UNESCO-protected complex alone risks missing out on little-known gems and details. This tour gives you it all—a guide to explain the highlights; tours of the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife; priority entry to skip the ticket lines; plus headphones and a smaller-than-average group size so you hear and see more as you explore.

  • Personal headsets and smaller-than-average group for more engaging tour

What to expect
  • Book your selected time slot and travel independently to the Alhambra entrance. Then, meet your guide and head inside, bypassing the ticket lines. Don the provided headphones and after an introduction, set off to explore. Listen as your guide charts the history of the UNESCO-listed complex, whose roots lie in the ninth century before its expansion into a full-blown Moorish palace during the 1400s and 1500s. Hear about the Nasrid royal dynasty as your guide leads you through the Nasrid Palaces, pointing out the architectural finery and rich carvings of the chambers, patios, and corridors. Stroll around the lush Generalife Gardens as you learn about their design and original function, and admire the sandstone Renaissance-era Carlos V Palace. As you explore, feel free to ask any questions you wish, and when the time comes, say goodbye to your guide, bringing your tour to an end.

Our guide did a great job! The tour was well-paced with a break in the middle to rest. Our guide did a great job providing just the right amount of detail and story in each space. This was a wonderful way to see La Alhambra - I would book again!

Informative tour
Very good tour of Alhambra and Generalife.
The size of the group was a bit larger than expected and it was a bi-ligual tour (not English only) but during the time the guide spoke Spanish we could take photos and we can never spend too much time in Alhambra :)
The information the guide gave us was excellent, he pointed out interesting details and answered all our questions

Excellent tour and guide
The guided tour of the wonderful Alhambra was very well organized. Our guide Juan Antonio (aka Nono) was very knowledgeable, really nice and enthusiastic. You could feel his genuine love of history. Even though that might not always be easy if you have to guide three tours of three hours per day! Much recommended.

Tour of Alhambra
Oct 2021 • Couples
Alhambra is magical, and most beautiful in every way. Our guided tour was incredibly organized and informative. Nono our guide was so kind, patient, answered all questions and provided background the entire 2.5 hours. I couldn’t recommend this any higher, so glad that I booked this tour. Completely satisfied and beyond. Nono recommended a restaurant for lunch after in Granada, it was the best meal we had in Spain so far… just a fantastic experience.

Great day out at Alhambra
Sep 2021 • Friends
Hamdi our tour guide was great, very knowledgable, friendly and accommodating. As we all had time to spare Hamdi offered us a more relaxed in depth tour which took us over the allotted time and we got to explore the generalife gardens and Alhambra at a really nice pace.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Granada, such a unique piece of history and makes a great day out

The three hour tour flew by!
Sep 2021
Our tour guide's (Edu) in depth knowledge of the Alhambra's history and his own horticultural interests made this experience extra educational and meaningful. He did not rush and encouraged and patiently answered all questions. The three hour tour flew by.

And kudos also go to Maria Jose who so pleasantly helped get us all to the right place for the tour.

Would not hesitate to recommend this tour experience to anyone who wants a thorough excursion to this wonderland
