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. Don't worry if you have no ticket you can complete your visit to the amazing Alhambra surroundings accompanied by an official guide.

Fantastic palace. Very worth seeing. Good guide and knowledgeable but sometimes difficult to hear due to the equipment. Well organized so that we could go ahead in queues. Bad with eating at the rest area with vending machines that required cash in the form of coins. Not used by many today and many were annoyed. Good toilets outside the entrance.

Laura was a great guide!! Extremely clear, helpful and knowledgeable! Our group was even overtime and she did not rush through the last part. I rarely do guided tours but this time I decided to do the full thing (Alhambra complex, Generalife etc. 3-hour tour) and it was definitely worth the money and time. I highly recommend it!

We were very pleased with our tour leader Laura. She took the time to explain every single details of the Alhambra and made the whole experience fun and interesting. She even convinced us to book the tickets to see the interiors of the palaces. I would recommend this tour to everybody!
