As you walk through the grounds of the Alhambra, your guide will bring the site to life by sharing its legends and stories.

Fantastic tour - thanks, Mohammed!

What an outstanding tour! Our guide, Mohammed, was extremely knowledgeable about not only these sites, but also about the history of the place and the time period covered as well. He was very affable, and we thoroughly enjoyed having him as our guide. We have both traveled a lot, and have had the privilege of seeing many beautiful places, but no place has ever impressed us more than this one. The Alhambra, Nasrid Palaces and Generalife are NOT to be missed. It is definitely worth not only the time but the investment in a guide, in our opinions. Fantastic!

Alfredo was fantastic. He met us on time. We requested an early start and he was there at 830 am even though we were all freezing!!! He told us amazing stories about the palace with amazing passion! He gave us enough time for pictures and even took pictures for us!!! The tour lasted almost 4-5 hours instead of the 2.5-3 and we felt even then we couldn’t cover everything! I loved Alfredo and recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Alhambra! ❤️

We couldn't be more satisfied with our tour. The extra expense for a private tour was definitely worth it. Our tour guide, Abubakr, was excellent. The Nasrid Palaces are not included in most group tours but it is one of the highlights of the visit.

Mohammed was the best guide we could...

Mohammed was the best guide we could ever have asked for. He was informed, friendly and patient. Our time with him was interesting and I wouldn't have missed this for anything. The Alhambra has a certain magic and charm to it like no other place, which was brought alive by Mohammed's passion for history and extensive knowledge of the site. This trip is well worth it. I strongly recommend you do it and enjoy the beautiful tranquil, verdant gardens and panoramic views alongside the magnificent Alhambra.
