Know More about this tour

Learn about the history of Granada on this 3-hour guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife summer palace with skip the line ticket. A Specialist and historianguide will lead you around the vast complex, dating back more than 600 years. Marvel at a magnificent mix of Islamic art and culture.

On this guided tour you will feel the spirit of the last Muslim bastion in Spain.Yusuf is still here in spirit. So is his father, Ismail I, and his son, Muhammed V. These three sultans were largely responsible for the Palacio Nazares the 14th-century miracle that shines as the Alhambras jewel. To amble through these chambers and corridors is to step into Al-Andalus, to feel the energy of a civilization that held such a significant portion of Europe in its clever grip for eight centuries.

Its matters of state still whisper in the Mexuar a meeting place for ministers, all floral tiles and tapering columns, whose later conversion into a chapel could not conceal its Moorish origins. Its afternoons at play still haunt the Patio de los leones an intricate courtyard, the core of royal life under MuhammedV, where fountains splash. And its sophistication still flickers around the Palacio de Comares.

I wander farther through a complex that Washington Irving captured so well in his 1832 tome Tales of the Alhambra his words often in awe of their context. How unworthy is my scribbling of the place? he famously asked himself and it is not difficult to understand his sentiment, inching along the ramparts of the Alcazaba, the oldest part of the site, its military acorn. Below, the Rio Darro twinkles, Granada a sultry Spaniard on its banks, but it still seems odd to think of the flags of Castile and Aragon flying on these battlements, in conquest, in 1492.

You can choose between Morning ,Afternoon or Night visit. Depends of the Nasrid palaces meeting time.

    Alfredo was a great guide. He was very thoughtful in his explanations. He really took the time to bring to bring the rich details of the various palaces of the Alhambra to life. His passion for history shone throughout the visit.

    We couldn't be more satisfied with our tour. The extra expense for a private tour was definitely worth it. Our tour guide, Abubakr, was excellent. The Nasrid Palaces are not included in most group tours but it is one of the highlights of the visit.

    Mohammed was a great guide. We learned so much history to help put our visit into context.
    You will enjoy your visit even more with a guide.

    Mohammed was the best guide we could ever have asked for. He was informed, friendly and patient. Our time with him was interesting and I wouldn't have missed this for anything. The Alhambra has a certain magic and charm to it like no other place, which was brought alive by Mohammed's passion for history and extensive knowledge of the site. This trip is well worth it. I strongly recommend you do it and enjoy the beautiful tranquil, verdant gardens and panoramic views alongside the magnificent Alhambra.

    Wonderful experience. Our guide was great. Although this excursion cost a bit more...I was very happy I had paid the amount. We were able to stop when ever we wanted to rest or take photos. Our guide was very knowlegeable and she even recommended that after the tour we go to the Parador on site and sit on the terrace with a drink. We did. The terrace has a spectacular view of Generalife.

    This was the best tour of my entire vacation. Our tour guide was wonderful. She spoke perfect English, was fun and was so intelligent.
    She knew everything we questioned and taught us so much about the sites and culture. I highly recommend paying the extra amount for this private tour. It was well worth it!
