  • 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
  • Learn the intricacies of the life of sultans and Moorish kings who long ago made Alhambra their home and explore the opulent rooms of the Nasrid palaces
  • Get wonderful panoramic views of Granada from the hilltop in the gorgeous Generalife Gardens

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.

Anna, our guide was amazing. She was pleasant and answered any questions we had. She was unbiased and objective about the history of the AlHambra. I appreciated how she pointed out the difference between what is cultural practices and the religion of Islam. AlHambra is absolutely breathtaking. Thank you for making it so informative!

Ended up buying this because I was too late to buy general tickets for the Alhambra directly - I hadn't realised that you need to book weeks or months in advance. Anyway, in spite of the increased cost, having a guide was a considerable benefit. Anne was informative and clear, and the use of radio headphones meant that we didn't have to huddle around her to hear. Yhe tour was 3 hours lo g. Very satisfied.
