The Alambra is an experience not to be missed. We travelled by bus from Malaga, booking our return tickets in advance, and hopped on a number 33 from the bus station in Granada to the centre of the city. After getting a map from the tourist information we enjoyed the walk to the Alambra. We met our guide and the rest of our tour group at the arranged point. The guide, Daniel, was great and spoke English fluently. With the help of the audio equipment used it was easy to hear him and his stories helped one to envisage the life of the city as it would have been. A thoroughly enjoyable day and highly recommended.

We booked this tour as the regular tickets to Alhambra were sold out and it was the only way for us to see the Nasrit palaces. The tour was good, Noelita was a great tour guide, but I would suggest rather trying to book the regular tickets far in advance as you don't need a tour guide. Also, we waited in a queue for over 30 minutes to get into the palaces :(

Very pleased.

First time visiting area and wanted to see Alhambra and other palaces but were unable to get tickets. Thought the price was high but is was a chance to be able to see what we wanted to see but we are VERY GLAD to have done it. Our guide was awesome and seemed to enjoy her job, enthusiastic and animated, really into it.
