Full description
Depart Seville and journey to the city of Granada to take a tour of the historic Alhambra, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural importance and architectural beauty. Benefit from the services of an official tour guide and expert in the history of the fortress, built for the Nasrid emirs who ruled Spain in the 13th and 14th centuries. Marvel at the fortifications of the Alcazaba (citadel), built to protect the city's districts, including the Moorish suburb of "El Albayzín". Admire the beauty of the Generalife, home to the summer pleasure gardens of the Emir. Next, drive to the center of Granada to enjoy free time for lunch. Then, take a guided walk of the UNESCO-protected Albaicín district where the winding streets are reflective of its Medieval Moorish past. Stroll past whitewashed houses and encounter age-old churches and flower-filled balconies. Stop to take in the spectacular panoramas of the Alhambra fortress perched on the neighboring hilltop. Return to Seville at the end of your historical adventure, and be dropped off at your original starting point.

      I enjoyed this experience! I didn't have time to travel to Granada, so this was a good compromise to get a taste of the city without having to plan or worry about anything myself. The Alhambra is a must see, and the guided tour was really interesting. Especially since I was traveling by myself I liked having the tour group to go with.

      This trip was so incredibly worth it. Both my husband and I get motion sick pretty easily and were worried about the long drive, but no worry was needed. Our driver was FANTASTIC and the trip overall was as seamless as advertised. We were texted the day before our trip with confirmation of where to meet our driver (he was there early), and then once we were in the van, the rest of the day was taken care of for us. The Alhambra was stunning, and we're so glad that this trip made it easy for us to get there and back without feeling rushed, all before dinner.

      Communication was very easy. Pick up time was prompt. Roman, our guide, was amazing! He was extremely nice, considerate, and very knowledgeable. He was also able to switch between English and Spanish very naturally. He gave us a history lesson of the surrounding areas during the bus ride to and from Granada as well. The tour guide at the Alhambra was someone else and he too was very knowledgeable and a good tour guide. I wish we had a little bit more free time in both Granada and the Alhambra but with time restraints it’s totally understandable. I would definitely recommend this tour to others as well!
