We, a family of 4 with 2 girls of 13 and 10, visited the Alhambra in early January on a slightly wet and very cold day. Despite the weather it was a truly memorable experience. The monument lived up to all the reviews we had read, beautiful gardens of Generalife and stunning Nasrid Palaces and almost no other visitors at that time! My only complaint was the price I paid. I booked through Get Your Guide and paid €115 for 4 tickets with audio guide. I knew I was paying almost as much as a guided tour but with 2 young children I did not want to be tied to a 3-hour tour. When we arrived we discovered there were hardly any visitors and plenty of tickets available on the door at a cost of €14.75 for adults and free for children under 12! I understand there are admin costs but being charged almost 300% when tickets were fully available at face value left a very bad taste. I am still glad we went but hate being left with the feeling of having been ripped off.
We were so lucky to have Ana Diaz as our guide for the Alhambra tour. Such a lovely and knowledgeable lady who made everything very interesting. We had a problem ( our fault,) by forgetting our passports (we had ID but you need something with a photo on it) and had to go back to the apartment in a taxi. Ana worked out when she and the rest of the group would be and told us to get a taxi to there. It worked out brilliantly thanks to her thoughtfulness and kindness.
Excellent ! I was booking for 4 people in October, and we were only the 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens, enjoying Segway for the first time. We had Amandine, driving us through Sevilla and its history in French as requested while booking. Very nice and interesting coach. Perfect fit with the teens. Everybody loved the tour and wants to do it again. Merci Amandine ;-) Bon retour en France!
The guide (Vanessa) was very nice and explained everything very well. She was also upbeat and enthusiastic about what she does, which makes it way more fun. We had some issues getting in to some buildings because of new ID requirements and she was patient and very helpful. We appreciate it so much, and thumbs up also to the personnel at Alhambra for being very helpful as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! I almost purchased the admission alone but thought I’d spend a little extra for a guide and it was so worth it! The guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience that much more gratifying! You have a deeper appreciation for the experience when you know the background of the site. 10/10 recommend!
