Confirm your preferred start time prior to the day of tour, and meet your official tour guide at a central location in Granada. Skip the long entrance lines at the Alhambra, one of Spain’s most visited monuments, and head directly inside this stunning example of Moorish architecture. As you explore the expansive Alcazaba citadel, learn about the sultans of the Nasrid dynasty—Spain’s last Muslim rulers, who reigned during the golden age of Granada.

Explore many other aspects of the sprawling complex, including the Nasrid and Comares palaces, the Alhambra gardens, and the palace occupied by Charles V when Granada came under Christian rule. Hear your guide retell the history-shaping events that took place here, and see evidence of the changes wrought by Muslim, Christian, and Jewish influence. Walk in the footsteps of sultans, kings, and poets as you pass through ornate halls, royal apartments, and splendid gardens, where you can admire the well-preserved Arab architecture and decor.

The tour also includes entrance to the adjacent Generalife gardens, an enticing series of Moorish-style landscapes that was enjoyed by the Nasrid rulers as a summer retreat. Soak up the peaceful ambience created by arcades, greenery, and fountains while your guide shares details of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Throughout the tour, feel free to ask all the questions you like and take advantage of your guide’s expertise and personalized attention.

It was well worth it to have a private tour of this amazing place! Our guide Manu, was terrific! He really made the place come alive for us as he's so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He took his time and was always ready and patient for every question we had. Also, his English was very good so communication was a breeze. Would highly recommend!

Amazing Alhambra experience with tour guide Edu

Our 3 hour tour with Edu was just amazing. We have had many private tours in Europe and Edu was the best tour guide we’ve ever had. His background in history and his enthusiastic for his subject matter was infectious. He paced the tour well, was sensitive to our needs and able to answer our many questions. We were deeply moved by this experience of the Alhambra. Thank you so much for an incredibly afternoon!

Amazing Tour and Tour Guide; A+ Experience

We had an exceptionally wonderful experience at this absolutely beautiful palace and fortress. Our tour guide Carmen was a wealth of information, her knowledge of the period and history of the Alhambra was extensive; and her personalization of the tour kept us from feeling rushed and kept the tour moving at a very good pace (because there is a lot to see). Also, Carmen was more than happy to take the time and answer all our questions. The beauty of the Alhambra is beyond words, truly a bucket list item. (Highly recommend visiting in off-season, and securing tour early, I'm told it sells out quite frequently).

Highlight of trip to Andalucia

The Alhambra is spectacular and our tour was extraordinary due to the site and our guide Hamdi Rawfiq, who brought the place alive for us. We were very lucky to have had him assigned. We could not have imagined a more enthusiastic, charming, and knowledgeable guide.

Booking was quick and easy. Communication prior to the trip was good. Our guide Marta was wonderful. It was good to have a guide: you get to skip the queue and it adds to the experience to get an explanation of an attraction so steeped in history

Our tour guide, Juan Antonio, was a joy! He was extremely knowledgeable about the Alhambra and Generalife and was very personable as well. He took us to every nook and cranny that was accessible. He explained the history of the place in exquisite detail. This was the highlight of our 13-day trip to Spain!
