Know More about this tour

You will be picked up from your hotel at 7am, and leave on a 4-hour drive to Alhambra. Alhambra is now one of Spain's major tourist attractions, exhibiting the country's most significant and well known Islamic architecture. Despite long neglect, willful vandalism, and some ill-judged restoration, Alhambra endures as an atypical example of Muslim art in its final European stages, relatively uninfluenced by the direct Byzantine influences found in the Mezquita of Córdoba. The majority of the palace buildings are quadrangular in plan, with all the rooms opening on to a central court and connected with each other by smaller rooms and passages.

The Palacio de Generalife was the summer palace and country estate of the Nasrid Emirs (Kings) of the Emirate of Granada.

The complex consists of the Patio de la Acequia (Court of the Water Channel or Water-Garden Courtyard), which has a long pool framed by flowerbeds, fountains, colonnades, and pavilions, and the Jardín de la Sultana (Sultana's Garden or Courtyard of the Cypress). Originally the palace was linked to the Alhambra by a covered walkway across the ravine that now divides them. The Generalife is one of the oldest surviving Moorish gardens. The present-day gardens were started in 1931 and completed in 1951. The Generalife is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Granada, along with the Alhambra palace and gardens, and the Albayzín district. After the visit to Alhambra and Palacio de Generalife you will get some free time in Granada city center before the tour returns to Seville.

  • We knew the travel time was long. The visit to Alhambra was very rushed. We wished there was some scheduled free time after the guided tour. We could have some free time in the palace on our own if not for the bus being late in the morning.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Really good day spent visiting Granada and Alhambra. Our guide was very competent and gave us all the information needed.

  • We were really looking forward to this trip but ended up far from happy with it...
    Our tour guide was to slack with the timing that people had to be back from.
    First stop to get some breakfast ended up waiting for some people so we were a little late, then we arrived to Alhambra and that was fun to see. Finished that on time and were to meet our bus driver and guide at the parking lot at 11:45, every one was there except two older spanish ladiesfriends that apparently got ''lost'' so we had to wait for them for like 30 min and then they finally showed up.
    Next stop was downtown Granada for some ''free time'' that got shortened because we had to wait for those women, our guide literally threw us out of the bus told us to meet them there again in 2 hours and left. No map give, no places recommended, no nothing, no one been there before and most of us spoke nothing in spanish so the group stumbled forward to find some lunch to eat and maybe see something if there was something to see. But no ! Most restaurants were closed,most shops were closed so we ended up going somewhere with nasty food and just waiting for the bus to come back and get us. Now the bus is back, everybody on board except the SAME OLD LADYS like last time !!! The other people wanted to just leave them and wondering why the guide wasn't harder on the timings but no we waited for them in a hot bus for almost an hour, trying to call them on their phones and so on but nothing, finally they showed up and our guide was like aww sorry for the wait folks but now we have to skip the next thing we were going to stop and go see so we are just heading back to Seville ....
    Third stop that I dont think was even planned, just the bus driver and guide hungry I guess, was at a bus stop with small cafe/shop and the stop was suppose to be 20 min. Just went and got ice cream and waited for us to leave again, then finally its time and again everybody on the bus except one of the Spanish lady, she was just in the store using the time to charge her phone or something so the Guide had to literally go in and get her so we could all go back to Seville, and the whole bus ride back yapping loudly on her phone and whatnot driving the rest of us mad....
    I swear me and my partner couldn't leave that bus fast enough !

    I recommend people just order from other company or drive them selves up and see the Alhambra, seeing Alhambra was the only good thing out of this trip.

  • Last minutes changes in pick up time was not appreciated. 5 am from seville was too early for me, i booked as pick time shown was 7 am.
    No hotel pick up was provided, though it was mentioned in inclusions and the pick up instructions were confusing.

  • Our guide was the best. Very knowledgeble! He really knew his stuff. From Christian to Muslim matters, he really knew what he was talking about and that was awesome. Visit the Alhambra and Granada was a dream and it came true! Great Job!

  • This was an outstanding tour!! They showed up on time and we had a delightful time.

  • Great day out! Palace is definitely a must see. Everyone one was fantastic from the beginning of the journey to to end.

  • This tour company is very, very deceptive. We paid a lot of money for a small-group day tour--much more than we would have paid for a mass coach bus tour. The tour was supposed to last from 7am-7pm. After the tour company took our money, they emailed us through viator to let us know they were picking us up at 5:20 in the morning. Considering that you cannot eat dinner in Spain before 9pm, it was a VERY difficult time for the tour to start and we are generally early risers. When we walked outside of our hotel at 5:20, we were greeted with a massive coach bus and huddled in. The tour was packed--not a single seat empty on the bus. To top it off, the tour coordinator would not shut up, making it difficult to sleep after our 5am wakeup call.

    The only reason that I am giving this tour two stars, instead of one, is because our tour guide at the Alhambra, Angel, was phenomenal. One of the best tour guides I have ever had. Our 3 hours at the Alhambra were wonderful. The other 10 hours we spent with the rest of the tour company however, were disappointing and deceptive. We feel very ripped off.

  • This tour was unexpectedly very very bad! We were very disappointed! The tour started at 9.45am instead of 7am as claimed and ended close to 11pm! Although there was a guide on board the bus with us for the 3 hour journey to Granada and 3 hour back to Serville, and she spoke in 3 languages Spanish, French and English, all we had were bursts of 3 minute information throughout the journey. In total she probably shared close to 15 minutes per language worth of information about the places we passed through and the village in Alhambra for the 6 hour bus journey! What saved the trip was the Fabulous local guide at Alhambra who gave very good information about the Alhambra settlement.
