Full description
The ancient city of Granada is full of unique beauty: come spend a full day in the city and soak up its culture, architecture, and history. In the morning, you will see the stunning Alhambra, a fortress built in the 9th century which later became a royal residence. In the afternoon, you will travel through Albayzin and Sacramonte, two fascinating Muslim neighbourhoods of the city. Albayzin is considered one of the most beautiful districts of Granada, known for its cobblestones and medieval feel. In Sacromonte, you’ll see the traditional cave houses inhabited historically by gypsies, and experience its gorgeous flamenco shows. Walking is by far the best way to explore every nook and cranny of the labyrinthian structure of these neighbourhoods.  Let your tour guide surprise you with historical information, legends, and artistic details for an unforgettable day.

Loved this tour. Both Maribel and Santi were very knowledgeable about the history of the city. The tour with Maribel in the Alhambra was amazing. Even though was a long tour and it was a lot of information she made it very pleasant. The tour in the afternoon with Santi was also very enjoyable. We had amazing views with him and at the end he recommended some places to visit and eat.

Den engelskspråklige guiden på Alhambra og Generalife var utrolig kunnskapsrik, dyktig og hyggelig Hun var veldig tydelig, informativ og hadde et rikt og nyansert engelsk språk Det ble litt for mye informasjon i.l.a de tre timene for oss som ikke hadde vært der tidligere Men, vi vil gjerne tilbake til Alhambra igjen! Sacromonte var også en stor opplevelse! Her hadde vi ikke guiden på øret til enhver tid, og informasjonen ble gitt ved div stopp underveis. Akkurat passe med informasjon. Alt ialt var vi veldig godt fornøyd

Die Führung durch die Alhambra durch Sergio war gut strukturiert und sehr informativ. Sergio geht gerne auf Fragen ein und ist sehr nett und aufmerksam. Die Tour durch Albayzin und Sacromonto war ebenfalls sehr informativ und kurzweilig. Auch dieser Guide war sehr freundlich und bemüht.
