We had minimal expectations but knew to book our tickets well in advance due to the limited allocation of the tickets each day. We booked thru Viator and were collected at exactly on time and as small group of 8. Our tour guide was exceptional providing us with in depth historical knowledge beyond expectation.

A visit to the Alhambra has been on my list of things to do for years - and this did not disappoint- The Culture and sense of History is amazing - the gardens of Generalife are simply amazing - do consider purchasing your tickets online to avoid queues- there are guided tours if thats your thing from about 40€ per person - or audio guides - or 14€ general admission and a good book - better to visit in the cooler months as it can get very hot - our apartment overlooked the Alhambra and I simply loved the entire experience

The Alhambra and Generalife gardens are stunning, but go with a guided tour or you'll miss SO MUCH. The info the guides have is second to none,they'll point out what you didn't see and tell you where to look and why

It's such a busy place but worth it. Our tour was arranged by the hotel. We were picked up at the square nearby. The tour bus stopped at multiple other hotels for pick ups. We were then grouped by language for the walking tour. It was very good although crowded. It took a half day. Alhambra was great but the tour bus did not tell is the bus did not shuttle back to the hotels drip that could have been communicated better from the tour or hotel. Getting s taxi from Alhambra was not a problem.

The Alhambra was fantastic with all the hype justified. You do need to get a timed entry ticket for the Nasrid palaces in advance (you can and should visit the rest of the Alhambra before and after your timed entry). It truly makes sense to control the crowds through this method. The crowds would spoil the visit otherwise. Before or after your visit go to the Mirador San Nicolas and have a drink and tapas at one of the two cafe/bars close to the top. The view from there is fantastic.
