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.

We took a 3 hour tour with about 20 people and our guide was Sergio. He was terrific. Conveyed an excellent knowledge of the palaces/ gardens/fortress and history of Spain. Very engaging, warm, friendly, with a good sense of humor. His command of English was excellent too. I wish I had history of art professors as engaging as Sergio was.

Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. It was a fun tour that took us through the entire Alhambra and associated buildings -- everything! It took about 4 hours total, including a 20 minute break, so not for the weak and weary.
