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.

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.

This is a wonderful and very informative tour. Our guide, Anna, took us through all the key areas of the Alhambra and Generalife and the palaces. She provided excellent commentary on everything... history, culture, architecture and botany. There is very little waiting in line since you skip to the front of the lines. There are multiple entry points. Passports are required and your ticket name has to match the passport. Please follow the instructions when you book your ticket.

We were fortunate to have Ana as our experienced guide during our 3 hour tour. She was very articulate and patiently guided us through the crowds as we went from the garden through the different palaces and buildings of Alhambra. She was very keen about her subject and knew her history well. Thank you Ana for a wonderful tour.

Great beautiful gardens in Generalife and the Alhambra was impressive. We were with a small group which allowed the excellent guide to give us a lot of personal attention. She had a lot of knowledge of history. An absolute must for any visitor to Andalusia. Worth a 10 in all respects
