This was the most fantastic tour I’ve ever had! Very personable driver who spoke fluent English was waiting for me at cruise terminal and whisked me away to Alhambra where I met my guide who was fluent in Arabic as well as English, and very knowledgeable in Islamic culture and history, which enabled him to provide detailed explanations of the Alhambra’s unique design, artwork and symbolism throughout the palaces. Tour time also allowed me to explore Granada’s old town before being returned to ship. I highly recommend.

Our guide Katy was superb on the coach and balanced information humour and relaxation really well. Noelle, our guide at the alhambra was exceptional, the tour flew in with fascinating stories and plenty of good pic and rest stops. One of the most relaxed tours ive been on in Spain. Thank you

The old guide man was knowledgeable and very helpful. I highly recommend the tour. It was a wonderful trip from Torremolinos to Alhambra Palace. Thank you.

Alhambra is beautiful. Book the trip with Nasrid palaces. This was the best part by far!

A really enjoyable trip with time to explore Granada before visiting the Alhambra
