It is very common for the tickets to the Alhambra to be sold out far in advance of your arrival in Granada. We were there on October 10-11. However, we were able to get tickets for a tour of the grounds outside the Alhambra. The walk onto the grounds can be steep, so plan ahead to see if you need to catch a bus or other transportation to meet your guide in time. We were very pleased that the young woman who was our guide was a historian. She shared an incredible wealth of knowledge about the history, culture, architecture of the era. She loved her subject which showed in her careful relating of the details about the Alhambra. On this tour you are able to enter one building which is the Charles V Palace.

Superb guide.

All instructions for meeting our guide were easy to follow. Very good value for an extremely knowledgable and interesting tour. Our guide was exceptional. Clear English speaking. The tour was fascinating and just the right time. We can't wait to return and see inside the rest of the Alhambra palace and the gardens which need to be booked 3 months ahead. We were very lucky to be able to book your guide only two days before our visit. Thank you for such an enriching and worthwhile morning.

Cristina was a FANTASTIC tour guide -- she was a total art history nerd and I loved it. She was more than patient with questions -- she was eager for them! I was so surprised by the quality of the tour. I definitely got my money's worth. Give Cristina a promotion!
