Know More about this tour

Your friendly local guide will pick you up from your Granada hotel by air-conditioned minibus and then whisk you away to La Sabica Hill to visit its most dramatic monument Alhambra. Perched high on the hill overlooking the city, the incredible palace complex was first built as a fortress at the start of the 13th century. Successions of Spanish rulers made Alhambra their home, and the fortress grew into a medina (little hilltop city) with numerous palaces and lavish gardens.

Skip past the long entrance lines with your priority access ticket and walk around inside with your guide, hearing all the history of this fascinating site. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Alhambra is a treasure trove of Moorish architecture and youll see several of its wonders as you tour its highlights. Admire decadent rooms inside the Nasrid Palaces like the Hall of Ambassadors (Saln de los Embajadores) and Myrtle Courtyard (Patio of los Arrayanes), and marvel at the architecture of Pedro Machuca at the Palace of charles v.

Step inside the Hall of Abencerrajes to gaze up at its star-shaped domed ceiling, and hear the tale of the massacre that took place here during a 15th century banquet. Youll also see Alhambras Royal Baths; plainly decorated, not ornate, in line with the belief that bathing was a religious requirement not a luxury.

After exploring the palaces, head to the Generalife Gardens to discover where the sultans and Moorish kings of bygone days once relaxed. Featuring abundant flora and distinctive water features, the gardens also comprise two further courtyards, which youll see, the Patio de la Acequia and the Patio de la Sultana.

At the end of your 2.5-hour Alhambra tour, your guide will drop you back at your Granada hotel by minibus.

    Highly Recommend this tour thru Grana Vision... small group -- and a well spoken engaging guide. Hamdi Tawfiq was knowledgeable and ensured the tour was at an easy pace without rushing us from spot to spot. A memorable visit.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour with Hamdi.. he was so knowledgeable about the Alhambra and took his time with the tour. We were given plenty of breaks over the 3 hour tour. We were so glad we booked the group tour.. especially when we saw the queue for the individuals- we bypassed all that thankfully ! Thanks Hamdi, we learned so much from you, especially about the water system at the Alhambra !

    This is a tour with a lot of positive reviews for good reasons…it is very good! The Alhambra is one of those places that just blows your away with its beauty but a tour guide that can take you back and explain why that beauty came about is everything. Claudia was that tour guide! Her friendliness and knowledge of the Alhambra truly made all the difference. Book this tour - you won’t regret it.

    I really enjoyed this tour, I booked it for my husband and myself. The tour guide, Alberto, was extraordinary. He enchanted us with the history of the Alhambra, as well as provide us with additional historical context surrounding the time period. He was funny and engaging. The Alhambra itself is just an incredible experience, and it was made all that much more exceptional with such a knowledgeable guide.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour with Carlos Fuentes - he was very well informed and very entertaining, he was excellent! Highly recommended

  • 24-Dec-2022

    Carlos Fuentes was our guide and very knowledgeable. He actually had to split his time between two languages, which I thought was impressive. The Alhambra alone was gorgeous, and I highly recommend a group tour.
