Full description
Depart Seville and journey to the city of Granada to take a tour of the historic Alhambra, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural importance and architectural beauty. Benefit from the services of an official tour guide and expert in the history of the fortress, built for the Nasrid emirs who ruled Spain in the 13th and 14th centuries. Marvel at the fortifications of the Alcazaba (citadel), built to protect the city's districts, including the Moorish suburb of "El Albayzín". Admire the beauty of the Generalife, home to the summer pleasure gardens of the Emir. Next, drive to the center of Granada to enjoy free time for lunch. Then, take a guided walk of the UNESCO-protected Albaicín district where the winding streets are reflective of its Medieval Moorish past. Stroll past whitewashed houses and encounter age-old churches and flower-filled balconies. Stop to take in the spectacular panoramas of the Alhambra fortress perched on the neighboring hilltop. Return to Seville at the end of your historical adventure, and be dropped off at your original starting point.

    This is a good tour. The Alhambra Palace tour was comprehensive but the pace is a little slow for my liking. The long walk within the gardens and palaces is not for the faint of heart. Make sure to wear good walking shoes! Albaycin tour was a little underwhelming, restaurant selections are only a few. I would recommend taking the group for a lunch stop at the city center before starting the walking tour of Albaycin. It was a shame that we did not get to see downtown Granada when we are already almost there.

    Roman our guide from Seville on the bus and our guide in Albaycin was the best! Also, David. another guide from Seville was very good. They spoke clearly and in English that we could understand. They gave added information about Spain on the bus and in Albaycin. The guide who took us around Alhambra was not helpful. He spoke broken English and was too technical. He also spoke Spanish because there were Spanish people on the tour. He spoke more Spanish than English. Roman answered our questions about the Alhambra better than the guide.

    Very professional. They looked for me at the agreed time. The collective very clean and the guide Petra very friendly and informed us everything. The tour of the Albaicín half short but you have to do it because the tour is nice and you can not go to Granada without knowing this neighborhood. The Alhambra is fabulous and the guide that touched us detailed everything with a lot of passion and I liked that a lot. Excellent option to spend the day in Granada from Seville.
