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.

The English-speaking guide at the Alhambra and Generalife was incredibly knowledgeable, skilled and pleasant. She was very clear, informative and had a rich and nuanced English language. There was a little too much information during the three hours for us who had not been there before. happy to return to the Alhambra again! Sacromonte was a great experience too! Here we did not have the guide on our ear at all times, and the information was given at various stops along the way. Just fit with information. All in all we were very happy

We had the misfortune to go on a Spanish day off which made it very busy, but it was beautiful, really recommendable to visit Albayzin and Sacromonte!! An extra compliment to the organization: due to bad luck we were just a little too late and the tour guide had already left (everything goes right on time!) and normally you really don't get in anymore, because you only have the voucher and no entrance ticket and you will not receive a refund. But the organization really did everything they could to reach the tour guide, send us our tickets, and agree on a meeting place, so that we could still enter the park. Top arranged!
