Full description
Granada’s Alhambra Palace is famous for its unmatched beauty, stunning views, and vast gardens replete with fountains and flower arrangements which will take your breath away. On this 3 hour Alhambra tour, step back into Spain and Granada’s Muslim past whilst exploring the palace and its gardens, with skip-the-line entry tickets and alongside an expert professional guide ensuring that you will have priority and be one of the first to enter the grounds.

You will start by exploring the palace and fortress, which in its golden age acted as its own citadel housing the King of Granada and hundreds of family members, guards and servants and was the last bastion of the Moorish peoples in medieval Spain. Explore the glorious grounds, with the inside featuring fine examples of Muslim architecture and decoration still impressive to this day.

Also you will visit the gardens of El Generalife, this is a villa which acted as the private retreat of the Muslim kings, which has become famous for it’s ornamental gardens, which combine a distinctive architecture with a range of water features, allotments and plant and floral arrangements.

Marvel at the magnificent Moorish architecture of the Nasrid palaces which are full of wonderful plasterworks, colorful ornamentation and gardens full of aromatic flowers and bubbling fountains. Admire breathtaking city views from a hilltop perch, and stroll through the botanical beauty of the Generalife Gardens.

Fantastic

It was wonderful having a guide to show us around Alhambra as it is so large. It is possible to move at your own pace and go without a live guide, but tickets need to be booked 2+ months in advance. ICE worked well for me in fulfilling my deal to see Granada's greatest historical treasures. Highly recommend.

Top leadership!

You could feel the dedicated enthusiasm and spirit of our travel guide, how she brought us closer to the history and background of the Alhambra. A very good tour - it was an experience! Tip: come a little earlier, because the signage of the parking lots and the meeting point itself leaves a lot to be desired. It takes time for you to find your way around, since nothing (or hardly) is signposted ... (maybe the tour guide could also put up information boards in the future)
