Full description
Get to know the true history of the Royal Palaces through the eyes of a local guide. You will be able to understand the history of Granada along with its artistic styles, not only of the Alcazar but also its surroundings.

You will visit sites that only locals know, skipping the long queues throughout a 3-hour guided tour of the Alhambra including Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces, Generalife, Palace of Charles V, and the Bath of the Mosque. The Alhambra was a former palace, fortress, and citadel, that was once home to the Nasrid Sultans and top government officials, court servants, and the royal guard.

The site consists of 4 clearly distinguishable zones: the palaces, the military zone or Alcazaba, the city or Medina, and the villa of the Generalife, all of which are surrounded by woods, trees, gardens, parks, and vegetable gardens. You cannot truly understand the history of Spain without the Alhambra, and this is your perfect opportunity to learn it.

On Saturday, February 29, 2020 I made a three-hour guided tour of the Alhambra with Antonio as a guide. I will highlight several things: his punctuality, his organization, his good work, and a perfect calm to enjoy knowledge that he controlled and knew how to communicate perfectly. I would definitely REPEAT.

Brutal..!! The experience with Jacqueline (Our Guide) It was very good, it is the second time we hired him (The Alhambra tour) and the first time it was a disappointment that we were touched by a person who did not know anything, told things meaningless. But this time, I recommend this person 100%, she is an expert of the Muslim world and knows all the secrets that the Alhambra hides.

We booked through get your guide. They booked our tour with a local group called exclusive tours. When they did not turn up for the arranged ten o’clock tour we rang GYG ,they informed us Exclusive tours, had moved us to 10;30 group .saying they had car trouble? (More than likely cancelled because there was only 3 people booked on this tour) The local guide still had not arrived at 10:30 so we rang GYG again unfortunately they could not get hold of exclusive tours. There was also Spanish group waiting for their exclusive tour rep . Two exclusive tour reps finally arrived at 10:45 . These reps informed us it was their day off ,but had been called in last minute to help out . Also when we finally got our tickets from the guide ,we then had to join a long queue to enter ?. . We would use GYG again, but would not recommend you to book the tour, if they use the local company exclusive tours .
