Granada’s Alhambra limits its daily visitor numbers, so booking ahead is advisable. Plus, exploring the UNESCO-protected complex alone risks missing out on little-known gems and details. This tour gives you it all—a guide to explain the highlights; tours of the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife; priority entry to skip the ticket lines; plus headphones and a smaller-than-average group size so you hear and see more as you explore.
What to Expect
Book your selected time slot and travel independently to the Alhambra entrance. Then, meet your guide and head inside, bypassing the ticket lines.

Don the provided headphones and after an introduction, set off to explore. Listen as your guide charts the history of the UNESCO-listed complex, whose roots lie in the ninth century before its expansion into a full-blown Moorish palace during the 1400s and 1500s.

Hear about the Nasrid royal dynasty as your guide leads you through the Nasrid Palaces, pointing out the architectural finery and rich carvings of the chambers, patios, and corridors.

Stroll around the lush Generalife Gardens as you learn about their design and original function, and admire the sandstone Renaissance-era Carlos V Palace.

As you explore, feel free to ask any questions you wish, and when the time comes, say goodbye to your guide, bringing your tour to an end.

Wonderful tour

My husband and I took this tour yesterday and enjoyed it tremendously. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. She actually spent an additional 20 minutes with our group to finish answering all questions. I would highly recommend this tour

Asier was a great guide, he saved the best for last and ended with a bang

The tour was exceptionally well structured such that you stayed engaged for the full 3 hours despite the massive amount of ground covered. Saved the best for last and ended with a bang. Knowledgable and engaged. Can't recommend enough.

Marta was excellent she really took her time and answered all questions and she is very knowledgeable. She explained the history in a very balanced view as western history is very slanted. She did a full tour and it was honestly the best guided tour...More

There are quite a few good cab drivers who will do whatever tour you want at any pace. Ask where you are staying for recommendations.
