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.

Frankly very complete this guided tour in French. "Amelie" is a remarkable guide who knows how to involve her audience, and spice up her comments with humorous anecdotes. We do not regret having met him to better understand the spirit and the history of the place. She gave us addresses, and other interesting places not to be missed. I highly recommend this guided tour in French with “Amelie”

The visit to the Alhambra and the Nasrid palaces is a must, we did this visit in a privatized group because there were 5 of us, which is ideal. Our guide Borjia was perfect. However, we are not very happy with the service of GetYourGuide, which did not send the right information and we almost couldn't get in...

Sergio was a fantastic guide. His knowledge of history and easy way of communicating made our experience of the Alhambra, Generalife, and Nasirid palaces rich and extra fascinating. He was very accommodating with our schedule as well. We all agreed we could easily have spent another 2 hours touring with and learning from Sergio!
