Full description
After pickup from Benalmadena, enjoy a scenic drive across the mountain range of Málaga to reach the historical city of Granada, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Upon arrival, discover the monuments that form the Alhambra, the most visited monument in Spain. First, take a walk across the Generalife Gardens and soak up the peaceful atmosphere of these landscaped gardens. Then, it's time for you to explore the Nasrid Palaces. Marvel at the elaborately decorated rooms and the rich mix of architectural styles. Admire a panoramic view of the city from the walls of the Alhambra, before enjoying some free time in Granada town. You can have lunch at a local restaurant, or simply stroll around the narrow streets. You will then meet the bus to start the return journey back to Benalmadena.

    A long, but very interesting day to visit Granada and then the Alhambra Palace complex. Fortunate with the weather which helped make it better. A reasonable amount of free time to explore the centre of Granada, but no "tour" as such of the city. Lots of walking around The Alhambra complex with lots of different levels and steps so you need reasonable mobility.

    This was our second time taking this tour, the last was 2018 and I have to say this tour was 100% better than the previous one. (Different operator). We had a couple free hours when we first arrived to Granada to tour the massive cathedral, second only to the catedral de Seville. Then a nice lunch in the city square before touring the exquisite Alhambra palaces. The guide on the bus ( and local guide in Granada (Daniel) were excellent, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. It was a most enjoyable day!

    The trip was really good, the pilot Annabel was really kind and told her well during the trip. In contrast, the Alhambra Jose guide himself is not polite or nervous. The coach is very comfortable and clean. Breaks during the journey are sufficient to use the toilet and possibly drink coffee. Alhambra beautiful although we watched her in the rain.
