Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Alhambra, Granada, Province of Granada, Andalucia

On a rocky hill that is difficult to access, on the banks of the River Darro, protected by mountains and surrounded by woods, among the oldest quarters in the city, the Alhambra rises up like an imposing castle with reddish tones in its ramparts that prevent the outside world from seeing the delicate beauty they enclose.
Originally designed as a military area, the Alhambra became the residence of royalty and of the court of Granada in the middle of the thirteenth century, after the establishment of the Nasrid kingdom and the construction of the first palace, by the founder king Mohammed ibn Yusuf ben Nasr, better known as Alhamar. The fortress became a citadel with high ramparts and defensive towers, which house two main areas: the military area, or Alcazaba, the barracks of the royal guard, and the medina or court city, the location of the famous Nasrid Palaces and the remains of the houses of noblemen and plebeians who lived there.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Generalife, Granada, Province of Granada, Andalucia

The Generalife is located on the hill Cerro del Sol, adjacent to the Alhambra, is composed of a series of large gardens, where every corner holds a novelty and a pleasant surprise for the eyes.
Some buildings within the Generalife are 'parasitic' structures, the work of later Christian hands, such as the West Gallery in the eastern part of the gardens, and two levels that rise at the northern headwall.

Traveler Reviews

    The logistics were not as described. We confirmed the arrangements and that our day would be in English. We were picked up in the early morning by a gentleman who spoke no English and we had great difficulty discerning that he would drive us to the Alhambra where an actual guide would take over. Because it was 6am, we couldn't call the office to seek information/translation. This also meant that we couldn't ask the driver to stop, on a 3-hour drive, for a restroom break. The tour guide spoke English which was a relief and visiting the Alhambra was amazing. When we were finished, the tour guide called the driver to come pick us up and take us to Granada for lunch. He didn't know the city of Granada and dropped us off in an area that had no restaurants that were open. We grabbed snacks out of a bar which was very disappointing. Not sure I would do a private tour with Viator again.
