Full description

Get a taste of medieval Granada with an unforgettable guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife grounds, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Relax knowing your ticket to the palatial city includes entry to the Nasrid Palaces, Alcazaba Fortress, and Generalife grounds. Best of all, choose a small-group or private guided experience, depending on your preference.  Your expert local guide will collect you from just outside the complex, ensuring that you access the Alhambra grounds via a separate group entrance. You will also enjoy separate group access with your guide when entering the Generalife Palace.  Take in the tranquility of the Emirs’ old summer palace at the Generalife, including a beautiful rose garden, planted courtyards, and relaxing water features. Hear all about the history of the city of Granada and the Alhambra in this tranquil setting.  Your guide will take you into the Nasrid Palaces, the old Moorish palaces, where you can get up close to the iconic Islamic decorative details. Enjoy the colorful geometric tiling and various courtyard water features, including the famous Patio de los Leones.

Architecture and art fans will enjoy the iconic Islamic and Mudéjar styles in the grounds. Visit the Alcazaba with your guide to see the royal fortress, so strong it was used for many centuries after its construction.

Climb the steps of the Watch Tower here to get unrivaled views of the city of Granada below you, including the Albaicín and Sacromonte neighborhoods. Roam the free areas of the complex at the end of the tour, whether you want to take in more of the beautiful gardens or visit other features such as the Palace of Carlos V, a Renaissance palace dating from the 16th century. Enjoy breathtaking views of the old Arabic Quarter of Granada, the Albaicín, from numerous viewing points in the Moorish palace complex.

I recommend having a tour guide going through the Alhambra complex. There is so much history and information that would be missed if not with a knowledgeable guide. I use Get your Guide for tours at all of our vacation destinations and they never disappoint, especially with the flexibility of cancelation in these uncertain times. Bring your physical ID/passport and not a copy. Although we were at meeting point ahead of time, there were many guides and we nearly didn't see ours although right beside us since missing the mentioned identifiers. Definitely recommend using the restroom ahead of time as I only saw two restrooms inside the complex and just one short break half way through. Bring your own snack/water as options are limited. Sacks must be worn front facing through the palaces so pack lightly. Tour groups can range up to 30 people, however our group was 11 due to the time of year so keep in mind when deciding for group versus private tour.

Una experiencia única, Alhambra es una preciosidad que merece mucho la pena conocer y disfrutar. La visita con un guía hace con que sea mucho más rica la experiencia. Nuestra guía, Natalia, fue muy amable, explicaba todo muy bien y siempre estaba atenta a todos. Sin duda recomiendo esta empresa. merece mucho la pena conocer algo tan hermoso como fue para nosotros la Alambra. La visita guiada fue muy cómoda y distraída gracias a nuestra guía. Una chica encantadora y muy educada. Siempre pendiente de resolver nuestras dudas e inquietudes. Me gusto mucho Granada.

I didn’t jump on getting my own tickets to the Alhambra complex when initially planning my visit to Granada so I was very pleased that this tour was available and included the entrance tickets. (Check that carefully if comparing different your options.) Having a guide meant that I didn’t feel the pressure to do the “homework” myself in advance - I could leave it to the guide, although having some background knowledge helped. She met us at the appointed time and location, exactly as described in the email (minus “Get Your Guide” gear). We felt that we were in good hands - we could just take it in and not sweat the details (maps, guidebooks, etc.) Muchísimas gracias, Carmen!
