Full description
Get a taste of medieval Granada with an unforgettable guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife grounds, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Relax knowing your ticket to the palatial city includes entry to the Nasrid Palaces, Alcazaba Fortress and Generalife grounds. Best of all, choose a small-group or private guided experience depending on your preference. 

Your expert local guide will collect you from just outside the complex, ensuring that you access the Alhambra grounds via a separate group entrance. You will also enjoy separate group access with your guide when entering the Generalife Palace. 

Take in the tranquility of the Emirs’ old summer palace at the Generalife, including a beautiful rose garden, planted courtyards and relaxing water features. Hear all about the history of the city of Granada and the Alhambra in this tranquil setting. 

Your guide will take you into the Nasrid Palaces, the old Moorish palaces, where you can get up close to the iconic Islamic decorative details. Enjoy the colorful geometric tiling and various courtyard water features, including the infamous Patio de los Leones. Architecture and art fans will enjoy the iconic Islamic and Mudéjar styles in the grounds.

Visit the Alcazaba with your guide to see the royal fortress, so strong it was used for many centuries after its construction. Climb the steps of the Watch Tower here to get unrivaled views of the city of Granada below you, including the Albaicín and Sacromonte neighborhoods.

Roam the free areas of the complex at the end of the tour, whether you want to take in more of the beautiful gardens or visit other features such as the Palace of Carlos V, a Renaissance palace dating from the 16th century. Enjoy breathtaking views of the old Arabic Quarter of Granada, the Albaicín, from numerous viewing points in the Moorish palace complex.

We booked the tour as there were no direct tickets left but we were so glad this was the case! The tour was value for money from start to finish and we learned so much more than we would have with just the audio guide. We thought 3 1/2 hours may be too long for us but it went in a flash due to the enthralling stories from the guide and her own interest in the subject. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Alhambra.

We had a great tour with Guillermo, an interesting, very well informed, friendly guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his city, the Alhambra and the history of both was extensive. The pace was good, and our guide was very considerate; asking if people wanted to wait in a comfortable place while he showed others an area; there was a break; he answered questions and offered assistance. I think the Alhambra would have been overwhelming without a guide.
