Full description
Discover the fascinating and mysterious Alhambra. For years the ancient palace complex has been the most visited monument in Spain, and the greatest surviving symbol of Islamic culture in Western civilization. You can choose from a group tour, or select the private option for a tour with you and your party alone. Get to know the Alhambra and its palaces in a relaxed and detailed way, with the help of your knowledgeable expert guide. History and legend are intermingled in this jewel of Nasrid architecture, that perfectly combines water, light, architecture and vegetation. The Alhambra is the only palatial city from the times of Islamic rule over the Iberian Peninsular that has been preserved.

- die Alhambra war unglaublich, unbedingt ansehen - "skip the line" wäre nicht nötig gewesen, die Tickets werden zeitlich über den Tag verteilt, trotz ausverkaufter Tickets an dem Tag gab es keine Schlangen. - über die offizielle Homepage hatte ich keine Möglichkeit, Tickets zu buchen. Über den Anbieter gab es nur Privattouren 3 Monate vor der Reise, man konnte sich keiner Gruppenführung anschließen, ärgerlich

Esther is an excellent and knowledgeable guide. The tour was fantastic

We booked this tour with Esther before arriving in Granada. It was well worth it. Esther was able to tell us so much about the Alhambra. It made the visit a really enjoyable experience. We were not rushed, and were able to take our time to appreciate the incredible beauty and serenity of this truly amazing place. Esther was friendly, and made us feel at ease. We thoroughly recommend using this company if you want to have a relaxing, informative and enjoyable visit to the Alhambra.

Our guide was very knowledgeable of the complex and about specific details in each room/space. However, the tour would have been five stars if it had been told in a more historical narrative format that provided deeper context for the area and complex itself. Finally, our guide was very kind and tried her best to answer our questions.
