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 interpreter of the heritage of the city and 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 post-Roman districts, including the Moorish suburb of "El Albayzín." Admire the beauty of the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife, the summer pleasure gardens of the Emir.

Next, drive to the center of Granada for lunch (own expense). 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 over the Alhambra fortress perched on its hill. 

Return to Seville at the end of your historical adventure, and get dropped off at your original starting point.

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!

Long day but worth it. Alhambra is amazing. Our guide in Alhambra (Antonio) was very knowledgeable. That tour was in Spanish and English. Albacin is the old Andalucian part of Granada, with an awesome view of the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada. Roman, our guide from Seville, was patient, friendly and very accomodating. Overall a great experience.

The bus ride was comfortable, Petra is very friendly and helpful. Our guide, Tareek, in the Alhambra, was amazing! In addition to presenting the entire historical context, the fact that he is a Muslim and speaks Arabic greatly enriched the content of his explanations. Albaicín is quite small, but worth the visit!
