Full description
Learn about the history of Granada on this 3-hour guided tour of the Alhambra and the Generalife. Your skip-the-line ticket ensures fast-track access to the monuments. A specialist guide will lead you on a tour of the vast complex that dates back over 600 years. Marvel at the Nazrid Palaces, the 14th-century miracle that shines as the Alhambra’s jewel. Experience the power of a civilization that held a significant portion of Europe in its grip for 8 centuries. Admire the Mexuar and its floral tiles and tapering columns. Its later conversion into a chapel did not conceal its Moorish origins. See the Patio de los Leones, an intricate courtyard that was at the heart of royal life under Muhammed V. You can choose a morning, evening or night visit, depending on the time of your admission ticket for the Nasrid Palaces.

    Mohammed was a fabulous guide and La Alhambra is absolutely amazing!

    Our guide, Mohammed was friendly and professional. He was so knowledgeable and a great story teller so the history came to life! We felt like he personalised the tour to suit us. La Alhambra was even better than we expected. It was totally worth the money for a private tour. We would highly recommend Mohammed and this tour.

    Excellent guide very interesting

    We have enjoyed this private tour with Mohammed very much. He is very knowledgeable and always includes a funny comment which makes the tour very entertaining. You also learn many interesting facts , which might be lost in a big group tour. This tour is a perfect balance between historical information and entertainment. Webhave been motivated until the end of the tour. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy Alhambra more private.

    Wonderful knowledgeable guide!

    Great guide - lots of good information, very friendly and polite. My only suggestion - since we were a family of 4 with 2 young kids (6 and 7), I think it would’ve been better to make the tour shorter with more emphasis on the palace and fortress and symbolism and spend less time on gardens and other ruins that did not hold kids attention quite as much
