Full description
Uncover the beauty of the millenary city Granada with the help of a local guide on a bilingual tour in Spanish and English. 

Visit some of the most emblematic monuments including the Alhambra – the palatial home of the ancient Arabic royalty. A monumental sight, the complex incorporates El Generalife, the summer residence of the sultans, the Nasrid palaces and La Alcazaba, which served as the military zone of the citadel. While absorbing the architecture your designated guide will fill you in on the intricate history of this legendary location.

Proceed down into the heart of the city, via the Puerta de la Justicia, the arched gateway that was built in the 14th century. 

Continue along the route, taking a glimpse of The Royal Chancellery of Granada in the old lumberjacks square as you go. Here you will also pass by the Santa Ana, a former Almanzora mosque with an exquisite glazed roof.

Round off the walk with a trip to the teahouses in the lower Albaicín, a foray into Alcaicería the old silk market, and a look at the exterior of the Capilla Real and the Catedral de Granada. The tour ends with tapas meal, allowing you to taste the true flavors of the area.

I really enjoyed the tour as a whole since he was so informative and was able to answer all of our questions. He did walk a bit fast which I enjoyed, but my parents didn’t love that. I would have liked for him to point out good spots to take pictures since he would move quickly. The downside was the tour was in Spanish and English, so part of the time we were bored as well as the others while we listened. Overall, it was a great tour, and the tapas place was delicious!!!!

Very nice and interesting tour. Thanks to Alfredo, our guide, who has passionate us with an engaging and clear exposure; very prepared he was able to give us both an artistic and historical vision of one of the most beautiful sites in Spain. However, being the 31st of December and having been late on the tour, due to the high number of visitors, it was not possible stop for an aperitif with tapas.

We wanted to see all of Alhambra and this tour does just that! It includes entrance to the popular Nasrid Palaces and not having to wait in any lines, which is also a plus!! Borja had so many interesting facts about the entire place and was really knowledgeable about the history with Alhambra. We asked so many questions and all were answered! Don’t forget to see the Washington Irving statue at the end...fabulous!! We were going to head for our free tapas and drink but Borja remembered we forgot to see the museum, so they took extra time to take us back to see the museum. We were glad we got to see it! While walking to the tapas restaurant, we also had a mini walking tour and was given some more interesting facts about Ferdinand and Isabella. Overall, I highly recommend you to find a way to request for Borja and Adrianna. They were very friendly and fantastic tour guides!! We had such a fun tour! 5 out of 5!!
