Our guide Marco is brilliant!

stephonzx - , March 2015

A great tour of the beautiful Alhambra and Generalife Gardens. Our guide, Fernando, was excellent - one of the best tour guides we've ever had. It is SO important to have a guide that is informed, interesting, enthusiastic and intelligible - and Fernando had all of those qualities. Just be warned, there is A good amount of walking involved, and the Alhambra grounds are pretty difficult to walk on, so definitely wear comfortable shoes.

On the official web site of Alhambra all tickets (just entrance and guided tours) were sold out for the next days. I was lucky to find 4 tickets at viator.com. Services provided was great. We have beem picked up on time, the guides in the bus and in Alhambra were really nice people, with good knowledge, sense of humor and attitude. We enjoyed a lot the tour. Normally you don't take a bus on the way back from Palace, it is a nice walk and it is faster or the same time as a bus trip. You go back right to down town of Granada.

Tour was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun.
The Alhambra is definitely worth seeing.
At night it's just spectacular.

Excellent - hotel pick up was on time, guide was knowledgable and friendly, Alhumbra was very interesting. The tour was very good value. Only gripe was the weather!

My wife and I enjoy this Tour very much, they were on time and tha Tour Guide name Felipe had plenty knowledge of the History of the Alhambra. It was worth every penny.

REINALDO A - , January 2015

Great tour of an iconic site. Picked up by bus near our accommodation and taken to the Alhambra. Very knowledgeable guide took us all over the site. Use of headphones meant that her commentary was clear at all times. It would not have been possible to do justice to the Alhambra by attempting to do a self guided tour.

The tour was fantastic- so full of information and interesting details. The guide literally never stopped talking (which was great) and was very friendly and warm. Thoroughly recommend it!. K

This was an amazing experience and one we would highly recommend. The Alhambra has to join the other wonders of the world!

Caroline N - , November 2014

This was a fabulous tour and I would highly recommend it to everyone. Our guide, Maria V. Was outstanding!
She enhanced the total experience!

Explore Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens on this 2.5-hour skip-the-line walking tour, led by a professional local guide. With hotel pickup and drop-off from your centrally located Granada hotel included, this tour guarantees you'll have an Alhambra ticket (limited ticket numbers are allocated per day) and allows you to visit UNESCO-listed Alhambra with minimum fuss. Admire stunning Moorish architecture in the Nasrid Palaces and gain a glimpse into the lavish lives of the sultans who once lived here.

Your friendly local guide will pick you up from your Granada hotel by air-conditioned minibus and then whisk you away to La Sabica Hill to visit its most dramatic monument - Alhambra. Perched high on the hill overlooking the city, the incredible palace complex was first built as a fortress at the start of the 13th century. Successions of Spanish rulers made Alhambra their home, and the fortress grew into a medina (little hilltop city) with numerous palaces and lavish gardens.

Skip past the long entrance lines with your priority access ticket and walk around inside with your guide, hearing all the history of this fascinating site. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Alhambra is a treasure trove of Moorish architecture and you'll see several of its wonders as you tour its highlights. Admire decadent rooms inside the Nasrid Palaces like the Hall of Ambassadors (Salón de los Embajadores) and Myrtle Courtyard (Patio of los Arrayanes), and marvel at the architecture of Pedro Machuca at the Palace of Charles V.

Step inside the Hall of Abencerrajes to gaze up at its star-shaped domed ceiling, and hear the tale of the massacre that took place here during a 15th century banquet. You'll also see Alhambra's Royal Baths; plainly decorated, not ornate, in line with the belief that bathing was a religious requirement not a luxury.

After exploring the palaces, head to the Generalife Gardens to discover where the sultans and Moorish kings of bygone days once relaxed. Featuring abundant flora and distinctive water features, the gardens also comprise two further courtyards, which you'll see, the Patio de la Acequia and the Patio de la Sultana.

At the end of your 2.5-hour Alhambra tour, your guide will drop you back at your Granada hotel by minibus.
