Full description
The iconic Alhambra, standing on a hill overlooking the city and valley of Granada and boasting the finest palaces and aromatic gardens, has drawn visitors from around the world for centuries. On a 3-hour private tour with fast-track access, you and your family and friends will discover the best representations of the artistic and cultural representations of Al-Andalus. UNESCO declared the Alhambra a World Heritage Site in 1984 and on this tour you’ll have access to the 3 main areas of the site. The Alcazaba was the military fortress where soldiers of the Nasrid royal family used to live. The Nasrid Palaces, where the royal family lived, are the most popular areas of the monument. See the Court of the Myrtles, Comares Palace and the Lyons Court, noted for its surprising and delicate architecture. The third main area is the Generalife, with its beautiful and evocative gardens and its summer residence for the royal family, on the upper part of the hill.

Sophia was highly knowledgeable and articulate and very patient with .

Alhambra is truly a wonder of the world and it transcends beyond just another truest spot. Going early or late or doing a night tour work for us. It can get g Crowed. I highly recommend booking with a private guide or a small group. Buy tickets ahead of time to avoid waitin on lines and do a little research!

The only way to see Alhambra!

We decided to splurge on a private tour of the Alhambra. Previous experience has taught us that having a guide you can freely communicate with can really bring the experience alive and this time was no different! Juan was terrific. His English was impeccable, he was a wealth of knowledge and kept even our 10 year old engaged. He was able to strike the right balance between historical facts and painting a picture of what life was like. Our imaginations were captured! He was a very pleasant young man, very personable and we enjoyed our tour very much.

Well worth a private tour

I booked a private tour for daughter and myself as we were not able to do much walking. Our Guide Beatrix was wonderful, full of knowledge and mindful of our age and capabilities and gave us time to sit when needed. We were most impressed with Beatrix who was such a lovely young lady and if possible I would urge anyone who could to book a private tour, this is the person to choose. Thank you Beatrix for a great day.
