Full description
Discover the unforgettable Muslim palatial city of Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which once was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty. Learn more about its rich history and elaborate, Moorish architecture from a professional guide as you walk around the uniquely well-preserved medieval citadel and explore both the Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife gardens.  Inside the palatine city and once the explanations have been received, enjoy the artistic beauty of the Patio de los Leones. Known for its iconic Muslim blue and yellow tile decoration, the courtyard is a stunning example of the splendor of Islamic architecture and engineering. Next, visit the Palace of Mexuar, the oldest palace in the complex and the Palace of Comares, which was the official residence of the Sultan as well as the location of the throne room.

Beim Eingangspavillon der Alhambra nicht in Panik verfallen, wenn man den Guide nicht direkt findet. Am besten alle mit einem Guide-Batch ansprechen und die gebuchte Sprache erwähnen, dann findet man den richtigen. Carlos hat uns (in Französisch wie gebucht) drei Stunden genau das gezeigt, was gebucht war. Alcazaba dann noch auf eigene Faust. Beim Zuhören bei anderen Gruppen (deutsch/englisch) hatten wir den Eindruck dass alle sehr professionell den richtigen Mix zwischen Informationen, Hintergrund und Spass vermitteln

I got much more out of my visit to the Alhambra than I would have without this tour. Victoria, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly; she kept us entertained with relevant information throughout the 3+ hours we spent together. One note of caution: you won't be able to choose the pace of your visit, obviously. I would have loved to spend more time in the Nasrid Palaces. Overall, I had a great time, and would definitely recommend this tour.

Excellent visit with Veronica, a fascinating guide who knew how to take the group on a bucolic walk in the time of harems and Al Andalous in perfect French. But €41 extra cost compared to the ordinary visit for a group of 18 is a lot. I hope at least that the guide is handsomely remunerated.
