Wandering through its cobbled squares, alleyways and viewpoints is the perfect way to soak up its rich 1,000-year history. On this walking tour, I’ll show you the beautiful fusion of Moorish, Renaissance and Baroque architecture that you’ll find all around you in Granada’s historical centre.

I’ll show you the striking building where charcoal was stored in the 1600s, the Corral del Carbón, and Plaza Isabel La Católica where you’ll see the statue of Isabella I of Castile meeting Christopher Columbus. From there, I’ll guide you through the maze of narrow streets in the Albaicín – the former Moorish quarter, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I had the most wonderful and educational tour with my tour guide Daniel, he is a wealth of knowledge and historical facts, I felt like I was walking through the palace with someone who knew how life was like back in historical times. I think doing a tour is the best way to make the most out of a day at Alhambra. I highly recommend going with this guided tour, especially Daniel, on any trips to Alhambra! You won't regret it!

We enjoyed seeing so much of this beautiful, historic city. The ride is a little rough but it's to be expected when traveling over very old stone roads. The value was good and makes for an affordable way to quickly familiarize oneself with a lot of the city in a short period of time.

The tour started on time, our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the history and places. It gave us enough time to enjoy each place. I always have excellent experiences at Get your Guide, thank you!!!

The tour was very informative and entertaining. We have learned a lot about Granada history and architecture. Also great tips and tricks from the guide, where to eat and what else is worth visiting.

We had an excellent guide. The best ever. So pleased with the whole tour.
