Visit the entire Alhambra complex and the Nasrid Palaces if you opt for a complete or private tour, and the Alcazaba and Generalife Gardens if you select the Alcazaba and Generalife Gardens tour.  Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, the Alhambra was a courtly city that was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty. In addition to the ornate palaces of the sultans, your guide will take you to see the military fortress for sweeping views of Granada and the surrounding mountains. The Generalife Gardens were a place of leisure for the Moorish rulers of Granada in the 14th century. Admire the stunning site that’s abundant with plants, flowers, and water features. Alternatively, choose the option for the Charles V Palace and Alhambra Surroundings Tour which just includes a visit to the exterior of the Alhambra.

Our group met as arranged outside the cafe. Carmen our tour leader arrived in good time and explained clearly the procedure for the tour. Carmen deserves extra credit for guiding us so efficiently through the Alhambra given that English is not her native language and having on occasion to deal with the distraction of other visitors along the way. She gave a thorough, clear and colourful historical account of the gardens and palaces of the Alhambra, which we listened to on our headphones. She frequently made sure that we could hear her clearly and allowed time for questions. She pointed out so many details that could have been easily missed or misunderstood without a guide. The audio system helped me become immersed in the fascinating history of the Alhambra and also I think lessened the distraction of other visitors. We thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour!

Excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and did an excellent job. The content of the tour was fabulous, including very interesting and impressive buildings and wonderful gardens. There were a large number of tours going on when we visited which did make everything busy, but this wasn't a big issue.
