Highlights
  • Skip the lines and be amazed by the Alcazaba Fortress, the Nasrid Palaces and the Palace of Charles V as your guided tour explains all on this walking tour through Alhambra and Generalife Gardens

Description

The Muslim history of Spain is preserved here at Alhambra - a must-see in Granada. Take this guided tour and learn the history of this revered heritage monument. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Alhambra will show you how the sultans once lived! You and your tour group will skip the entrance lines, get a fully guided tour on the inside, and amazing panoramic views of Granada from the hilltop.

The imperial majesty of Granada’s palace and fortress complex Alhambra cannot be denied. For years, Moorish kings and sultans made this sunny spot their home, and your three-hour guided tour of the Nasrid palaces and gorgeous Generalife Gardens will give you lots to talk about.

No need to join those snaking queues either. After meeting your guide in a nearby cafe, you and your group can get straight into Alhambra and start your historical adventure! See the royal baths, where rulers reclined in soapy bliss, the Partal gardens and the palace of Charles the Fifth on the hilltop of the Assabica, inside the Nasrid fortification. All the while your guide will fill you in on the context and history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Imagine yourself as a Granada aristocrat as you walk among the flowers in the Generalife Gardens.

With all that historical beauty inside the walls, you'd be forgiven for missing what's going on beyond them. But while at Alhambra, take the time to soak up the panoramic city vistas from your hilltop perch.

The grounds of the Alhambra and Generalife are rich with culture, architecture and history. Our guide made the whole experience a special day. Without her to take us through with great knowledge and efficiency, we would have been overwhelmed, overexhausted and not walked away as pleased with our day. She also recommended a couple of locals restaurants that were a treat! Highly recommend this tour.

The guide, Anna, was excellent. She pointed out all the important features in a very informative but relaxed way. The 3 hour tour seemed to go very quickly. Many thanks.

Our guide was knowledgeable and kept a good pace. There is so much to cover. Would like to have been in a slightly smaller group. We had 26 in our tour.

návštěva Alhambry je opravdovým zážitkem i pro ty, kteří nejsou fanoušci historie či památek. Dostat se tohoto komplexů paláců lze pouze přes turistické společnosti, po návštěvě jsme pochopili proč tomu tak je. Funguje ve velmi dobře organizovaných skupinkách a lístky jsou na konkrétní jméno. Vše je načasované do minuty a to po celou prohlídku 3 hod. Mysleli jsme si, že si zakoupíme lístky a sami si projdeme, toto není možné a musí se chodit s průvodcem. Ale hned na krátké chvíli pochopíte proč. Dostali jsme mikrofonky za ucho, kde byl slyšet výklad naší bezvadné průvodkyně. Jmenovala se Anna a musím opravdu pochválit její výklad. I pro nás s menší znalostí Aj byl výklad poutavý a zajímavý. Slečna byla moc milá a krásně vyprávěla :-). Prohlídka skutečně trvá 3-3,5 hod. Nelze vzít kočárek pro děti (nepustí Vás tam s tím a zanechá se v úschovně) a terén není také pro hůře pohyblivé (zejména 1. část, dále už to jde). Doporučuji svačinu a pití s sebou, není čas na nákup z automatu, to si v pauze 10 min raději odskočíte na WC, takže před prohlídkou určitě doporučuji si odskočit. Jinak organizace Tiqets hodnotím také na výbornou. V 8:20 byla slečna průvodkyně na místě a kontrolovala nás podle jména, rozdala lístky a mikrofonky+základní instrukce. Alhambru, Tiqets a slečnu Annu mohu jen doporučit :-)
