Full description
After pickup from Benalmadena, enjoy a scenic drive across the mountain range of Málaga to reach the historical city of Granada, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Upon arrival, discover the monuments that form the Alhambra, the most visited monument in Spain. First, take a walk across the Generalife Gardens and soak up the peaceful atmosphere of these landscaped gardens. Then, it's time for you to explore the Nasrid Palaces. Marvel at the elaborately decorated rooms and the rich mix of architectural styles. Admire a panoramic view of the city from the walls of the Alhambra, before enjoying some free time in Granada town. You can have lunch at a local restaurant, or simply stroll around the narrow streets. You will then meet the bus to start the return journey back to Benalmadena.

    Alhambra is a must see. The trip was well-organized. Just keep in mind that with a large group and multiple languages spoken, gathering everyone and translating information takes a significant amount of time. Also, the "trip duration" does not include travel time to and from Granada. (This caused us an issue getting back in time for a dinner reservation and would have been helpful to know in advance.)

    Great trip, everything ran really smooth from being picked up in the morning to being dropped back off in the evening. The tour guide on the bus and the one at the Alhambra were both very knowledgeable and friendly. The only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is because it was a very long day and we became very tired before the Alhambra tour finished. We left at 7.35am and got back about the same time in the evening, so a 12 hour day!

    Excellent tour guide, comfortable bus and an overall nice pace to the day. Seeing Alhambra and Nasrid is not something I'm ever going to forget and Granada is a beautiful city. The only thing I would have liked would be slightly more time to explore the city but then again it would be impossible to fit it all into one day! I'd definitely recommend this tour to others, just be sure to bring comfortable shoes.
