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.

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.

Our guide Alberto was extremely knowledgeable and spoke clearly and well, answering all our questions. He explained the history of the Alhambra and the city, and picked out interesting points throughout the tour. Really impressive and very enjoyable.

We bought this guided tour of Alhambra including Generlife and Nasrid palaces with Alberto. He was really a nice guy and knew all the information about the Alhambra and its history. I can only recommend to have this guided tour if you are going to visit Alhambra.
