Full description
Discover the fascinating and mysterious Alhambra. For years the ancient palace complex has been the most visited monument in Spain, and the greatest surviving symbol of Islamic culture in Western civilization. You can choose from a group tour, or select the private option for a tour with you and your party alone.

Get to know the Alhambra and its palaces in a relaxed and detailed way, with the help of your knowledgeable expert guide. History and legend are intermingled in this jewel of Nasrid architecture, that perfectly combines water, light, architecture and vegetation. The Alhambra is the only palatial city from the times of Islamic rule over the Iberian Peninsular that has been preserved.

This tour grants you access to the entire fortress complex, including the Alcazaba, the Generalife, the Palace of Carlos V, and the mosque baths.
