Full description

Learn about the history of Granada on this guided tour of the Alhambra's Nasrid Palaces and the Generalife. Explore the treasures within, including the ornate Court of the Lions. A specialist guide will lead you on a tour of the vast complex that dates back over 600 years. Marvel at the Nasrid Palaces, the 14th-century miracle that shines as the Alhambra’s jewel. Experience the power of a civilization that held a significant portion of Europe in its grip for 8 centuries. Admire the Mexuar and its floral tiles and tapering columns. Its later conversion into a chapel did not conceal its Moorish origins. See the Court of the Lions, an intricate courtyard that was at the heart of royal life under Muhammed V. You can choose a morning, evening, or night visit, depending on the time of your admission ticket for the Nasrid Palaces.

Jose did a wonderful job explaining the history and architecture of the Alhambra. He met us right on time and was in no hurry. He took his time to focus on the areas that interested is most. We were a family of 5 and though we signed up for a group tour- we received a 3 hour private tour. It was an incredible afternoon.

I visited the Alhambra on a cold November day. However, thanks to our guide, Abubakr, we felt great and time seemed to fly by. He has a vast culture, turning work into passion. We have accumulated a lot of information, dressed in a beautiful story. Thank you very much for an almost perfect afternoon, because as you know ... only God is perfect

Our guide, Mohammed was friendly and professional. He was so knowledgeable and a great story teller so the history came to life! We felt like he personalised the tour to suit us. La Alhambra was even better than we expected. It was totally worth the money for a private tour. We would highly recommend Mohammed and this tour.
