Highlights
  • Skip the lines and be amazed by the Alcazaba Fortress 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.

A fabulous place to visit. The palaces and gardens are steeped in history and richly decorated interiors. The location has spectacular views above the city of Granada. I recommend a tour guide to get the full impact of the experience, we were very pleased with Carmin who was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history.

We booked this tour as an option to get access to the Alhambra and are so glad we did. The instructions for meeting place were easy to follow, and our guide Vanessa was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable and pleasant, and although it was a group of 25 or so we felt like we were the only ones on the tour, she had a real gift for making the tour interesting and intimate. Highly recommend! I would not suggest seeing the Alhambra without a guide, there is just so much to see that would otherwise be missed.
