Full description
Discover the architectural treasure of Granada on a guided tour of the Alhambra complex. Marvel at the ornate palaces of the Nasrid rulers and see the beautiful courtyards and gardens of the Generalife overlooking the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

Learn about life in the Middle Ages as the city and its main monuments are brought to life before your eyes. See the main palaces of the Nasrid rulers, including the Mexuar Hall and Comares Palace, where the king lived surrounded by the Court of the Myrtles.

See the ruins of the medina and Renaissance renovations from the days of King Charles V. Then, make your way to the medieval gardens of the Generalife, built for the Nasrid rulers as a summer palace and linked to the Alhambra by a covered walkway across the ravine that divides them.

Very mice guide— how in the world did we get on a Spanish only tour?

Our guide helped us get an English audio guide but between the crowds and not being able to understand our guide, we were lost and missed much... very sad. Things only began to look up when we ditched the tour and went through the palace on our own. Still not sure how we ended up in a Spanish only tour!

Mi familia y yo estamos de acuerdo en que la experiencia ha sido muy positiva. Algunas razones son las siguientes: . El punto de encuentro con la guía y el grupo era muy sencillo. . Realizamos el tour de las 9 de la mañana, el cual fue ideal para evitar un gran número de turistas y el sofocante calor. . Nuestra guía, Victoria, era realmente buena. Explicó de una manera muy amena y dando numerosos detalles cada una de las partes de La Alhambra. . La guía se preocupó de darnos toda la información necesaria, haciendo que el tour durara algo más del tiempo programado.
