Full description
Take this full-day excursion from Roquetas de Mar to explore the most visited site in Spain, the exquisite Alhambra in Granada. Start the morning with a drive through the Sierra Nevada, between the rivers Darro and Genil. Passing through the desert of Tabernas, you'll reach the golden, · cobblestoned city of Granada where you will get some free time to explore it on your own pace. Attractions you will see include the Nasrid Palaces & the Generalife Gardens.  Move on to the monumental Alhambra and get skip-the-line entry to explore the vast complex, constructed during the mid-14th century by the Berber rulers of the Emirate of Granada in al-Andalus. You will also see the Renaissance palace built by Emperor Charles V inside the Arab stronghold. One of Spain’s most magnificent examples of Moorish architecture, the Alhambra delights with its harmonious blend of Islamic architecture and dreamy gardens.

Very good tour!

Me and my partner really enjoyed a tour. A bit shame that tour in Granada was so short,but we were very pleased about Alhambra tour. We had very nice local guide in Alhambra who left impression that she is enjoys what she is doing. Unfortunately can’t remember her name. We are very pleased about Pepe Tours guide Guillermo as well.

A good trip, worth seeing

The sites are worth it and the guide on site was excellent. The bus and assistant were fine for basic information - we broke off from the city tour to see the cathedral and royal chapel, it seemed crazy to go to see Granada and walk around saying see that some time when you come for longer. We found a great tapas place in town as well. Many people had problems in the heat - take plenty of water for the tour.

Fantastic.

The whole trip was excellent from start to finish. The Pepe Tours guide was amazing, switching from Spanish,English,German,Dutch and if required he could also speak French!! Amazing. Can't remember his Spanish name but said its nearest translation was William in English. The journey for us was from Almeria where we were picked up dead on time. The journey consisted of a running commentary of facts and information of the area and terraine and this continued whilst driving through Granada. I only wished we had booked more of their tours during the week. Would certainly recommend their trips.
