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 interpreter of the heritage of the city and 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 post-Roman districts, including the Moorish suburb of "El Albayzín." Admire the beauty of the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife, the summer pleasure gardens of the Emir. Next, drive to the center of Granada for lunch (own expense). 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 over the Alhambra fortress perched on its hill.  Return to Seville at the end of your historical adventure, and get dropped off at your original starting point.

The ride to Alhambra and Albaicin was very comfortable; the coach was punctual, the driver reliable and the group leader, Inés made sure things ran smoothly throughout the trip. There was another guide, whose name is Gustavo A., at Alhambra, who's absolutely competent, knowledgeable and humorous. The tour within Alhambra was made even better because of him. Downside to this entire trip, was the walking tour in Albaicin. It would have been much more effective and enjoyable, if this particular tour guide had a microphone and we guests had earphones. We were walking around without having much of a clue of what she said, and that's a pity.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, specifically the Alhambra!! Expect a long day, but worth the cost and time! Only thing we did not care for was the visit to Albaicin. My suggestion would be to just take this part out and get people back to Seville earlier in the evening. We stopped in the neighborhood after the visit to Alhambra for a one hour lunch and a quick photo op at a location that provides a beautiful view of the Alhambra, but we kind of felt it was unnecessary and would rather have just started the travel home. Still highly recommend this tour—the guides were excellent!

The departure from Seville on time and at the right meeting point. Guide for the trip and Albacin, Spanish, English and very little French, but very good will. Seems to lack a bit of craft. (I was afraid that it was he who would guide us to the Alhambra... Visit of the Alhambra with a perfectly bilingual guide (Spanish and French) very friendly, very interesting and very professional. 4* for the guides...3.5 for one and 5 for the other
