Relax knowing your ticket to the palatial city includes entry to the Nasrid Palaces, Alcazaba Fortress, and Generalife grounds.

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 3-hour tour of the Ahlambra with Anna was perfect. She gave us a wealth of information about this very interesting historical site, weaving it into captivating stories and linking it to our surroundings in a fun and digestible way. I found myself sharing things I learned on this tour with colleagues over the next days who have been to Granada many times. Highly recommend this tour!

We had a fantastic guide - Ana. It is not enough just to visit Alhambra- it is all in details, not only in details of the palace, it is also in details of the history in this very special region of Spain. And Ana excelled in every detail. The tour with her was very educating but at the same time very relaxed. Very recommendable.

An excellent tour by Anna. Punctual,courteous and very informative. Anna took the time to ensure all members of the group had a great experience particularly those with mobility issues. The Alhambra is a must see and so glad we included the palaces which were exceptional. Granada turned on beautiful weather to make our day a truly memorable one. Very well done,brilliant.
