How to Choose an Alhambra Tour

How to Choose an Alhambra Tour
A visit to Alhambra Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a must for visitors to Granada. Given the site's limited number of daily visitors, it’s essential to book tickets in advance. Exploring as part of a tour is a popular choice, and there are numerous options available. Here’s how to choose the perfect tour for you. 

For First Timers
Various tickets are available for different parts of the Alhambra complex, but to see it all, choose a tour that includes access to Nasrid Palaces, Generalife, and Alcazaba Fortress. First-time visitors to Granada can also pair a tour of the Alhambra with a city tour of Granada, a walking tour of the Albayzin neighborhood, or a visit to the Arabian Baths. 

For Independent Travelers
Booking your tickets in advance is the only way to guarantee entrance, but you don’t have to join a guided tour. Opt for a skip-the-line ticket with an audio guide to explore at your own pace. 

For Those Short on Time
Most tours of the Alhambra take around three hours, but if time is of the essence, opt for an early access tour of the fortress or visit the Nasrid Palaces after closing. Not only will you avoid the crowds, but you also have the rest of the day free for sightseeing or traveling. 

For History Buffs
Visiting the Alhambra with a private guide offers extra insight into the palace’s history and architecture. Choose a tour that covers the entire site, including the Palace of Charles V and Generalife Gardens, or discover hidden tunnels and passages that most visitors never get to see on a tour of the Alhambra penitentiary site.
