Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, the Alhambra was a courtly city that was home to the sultans of the Nasrid Dynasty. In addition to the ornate palaces of the sultans, your guide will take you to see the military fortress for sweeping views of Granada and the surrounding mountains.

Laura was a great guide!! Extremely clear, helpful and knowledgeable! Our group was even overtime and she did not rush through the last part. I rarely do guided tours but this time I decided to do the full thing (Alhambra complex, Generalife etc. 3-hour tour) and it was definitely worth the money and time. I highly recommend it!

We were very pleased with our tour leader Laura. She took the time to explain every single details of the Alhambra and made the whole experience fun and interesting. She even convinced us to book the tickets to see the interiors of the palaces. I would recommend this tour to everybody!

From the booking till the end of the tour, everything was well organized. The tour is a fantastic experience and gives a good overview in what Alhambra has been and is. And, most important, Carmen, our guide, was excellent. She was enthousiast, very knowledgable and an outstanding communicator! Well done!
