As mentioned by others, quite costly, but ultimately worth it to see the Alhambra (we left our bookings a bit late so tickets on the official website for less were sold out). Two things to note: you get a Granada card with this booking, which is valid 2 days after your Alhambra visit, so make sure you don't do the Alhambra on your last day (like we did) or you'll miss out on this, which arguably would've made the price more palatable. Secondly, while this booking says your Nasrid Palaces entrance time won't necessarily be at your ticket time, IT COULD BE. We ended up running up the hill to get to the Nasrid Palaces in time because we picked up our tickets from the office only 20 minutes before our ticket time - we thought our Nasrid Palace entry would be later. Don't make this mistake: rather fetch your tickets as early as you can. Other than that, the ladies at the office were lovely and very helpful, and the audio guide is great if you're a fan of taking things at your own pace.

This 3-hour tour of the Ahlambra with Anna was perfect. She gave us a wealth of information about this very interesting historical site, weaving it into captivating stories and linking it to our surroundings in a fun and digestible way. I found myself sharing things I learned on this tour with colleagues over the next days who have been to Granada many times. Highly recommend this tour!

Really great tour with incredibly knowledgeable local tour guide Ana of the generalife palace, gardens and Alhambra. We especially loved the focus on the Muslim history of Granada and Andalusia. Thanks so much to Ana, would definitely recommend this detailed and engaging tour.

The gude did a very good job which gave the tour en extra dimension. Not boring and with some funny, but interesting details. I liked her way of informing about the different details.

Really enjoyed this guided tour of the Alhambra with Hanna our tour guide. The palace and gardens were fabulous and the information provided by Hanna excellent.
