    Pretty nice tour with a well educated guide. The instructions and communication up to the tour was vey good and clear. I'm glad we took a tour with all the sights including Generalife and Alcazar, as they are all very distinct and each is worth going to. Booking a tour and skipping the lines helped a lot (even though it wasn't peak season). The Alhambra is so large, I can't imagine not doing it as a guided tour. I haven't given 5 stars because our tour had more than 20 people, though they have explicitly advertised this as a small tour with max than 20 people (this is written three times in their description), so I felt cheated. When I complained through Viator, they lied and said that they had 20 people (I know they did not), so I don't know what to make of a company that will lie about such things. This is just one data point, but makes me wonder if this is their attitude, what else must be going on regularly in other tours. It didn't affect the tour much, but of course, when I'm paying a premium for being promised a small tour and turns out that they don't give me that and flat out lie, I won't be booking them or trusting Viator again.

    I booked the three-hour guided tour and was very pleased with the experience!
    Marta, our guide, was a very well-paced story teller, with an enthousiasm for the place and its history, and was happy to take our questions and interact. We were also lucky to visit on a day that wasn't extremely crowded, which made it even more pleasant.
    I initially purchased the guided tour because there were no more general admission tickets, but I think it was well worth the extra money and would recommend it to anyone who has a special interest in the place.

    My husband, sister and I took the Alhambra tour and found it worth the money. Our tour guide was fantastic and knowledgeable of the history of the Alhambra. With our guide, I would have found the experience to be overwhelming, since the area is vast and the small details would've been lost. If touring in Dec-Jan, I would recommend hats, gloves and a warm coat; the buildings are designed to remain cold, so after 3 hours, it becomes a cold-weather survival test.

    Brilliant tour at a perfect pace learning all of the history of the Alhambra. I would thoroughly recommend taking a tour vs visiting the Alhambra solo so that you can experience the rich history of the place.

    Our guide Jamie was excellent. His passion and knowledge was evident and made our experience all the better. The Alhambra is so complex that you simply have to do it with a guide. Pick Jamie!

    The Alhambra is a fantastic historical attraction. However it is hard to interpret without guidance. Sergio was our tour guide and was excellent throughout our visit. Not only was he knowledgeable about the Alhambra but his passion and enthusiasm brought the palace alive for all our party. In addition he was thoughtful, courteous and pleasant to all our party and to the staff and other tour guides of the palace. A very special trip because of our excellent guide.

    Our guide Edu was enthusiastic and informative. He brought the Alhambra to life with his well-paced commentary and humour.

    Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and the small group made the experience worth the money. I would like for it to be easier to find the tour group find each other.

    The tour exceeded expectations! Juan Antonio (AKA Nono :) was our guide and he was fantastic. The pace was perfect and he was so knowledgeable and friendly.

    We had Juan as our guide and he did a great job. Pace was perfect and lots of interesting information. Be warned this is a pretty good work out with lots of stairs and about 3 hours of walking. The Alhambra is spectacular and if you do one tour this is it. Book way ahead and the morning are much cooler and less busy. Highly recommend!
