Full description
Explore the 600-year-old Alhambra complex on a 3-hour tour led by an expert local guide. Visit the entire Alhambra complex and the Nasrid Palaces if you opt for a complete or private tour, and the Alcazaba and Generalife Gardens if you select the Alcazaba and Generalife Gardens tour.  Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, the Alhambra was a courtly city that was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty. In addition to the ornate palaces of the sultans, your guide will take you to see the military fortress for sweeping views of Granada and the surrounding mountains. The Generalife Gardens were a place of leisure for the Moorish rulers of Granada in the 14th century. Admire the stunning site that’s abundant with plants, flowers, and water features. Alternatively, choose the option for the Charles V Palace and Alhambra Surroundings Tour which just includes a visit to the exterior of the Alhambra.

Many thanks to you Borggia (our guide) for the excellent time spent with you during the visit to the Alhambra. Your good mood, your humor and your in-depth knowledge made these 3 hours a very pleasant moment. We really liked your point of view and learned a lot. Best wishes. Corinne and Olivier

Our tour of Alhambra terrific. We had a very small group of only 4 people, so everyone was able to hear and ask questions throughout the tour. Our tour guide, Carmen, was phenomenal! She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Spain and Alhambra, and she spoke very good English. Overall, Carmen was a pleasure to spend the tour with and we’re very happy we had her as our tour guide. We did the 5:00pm tour, which was great because it was less crowded later in the day and the views of Alhambra with the sunset were beautiful. No complaints. We enjoyed every minute.

Very interesting and well organized trip. Everything went professionally and Carmen is a very knowledgeable and skilled communicator. We really got a lot of history conveyed in a relevant way. We were a family group of 7 and everyone was excited. In addition, good information about meeting place etc. from GetYourGuide - warm recommendation
