Pl. de las Pasiegas, 5 , Pl. de las Pasiegas, 5, 18001 Granada, Spain

Plaza de las Pasiegas. Main Facade of the Cathedral of Granada. Central Arch.

Plaza Nueva , Pl. Nueva, 18010 Granada, Spain
Greet your guide at a central location in the Cathedral quarter and begin your tour with an ambient stroll through Albacin, a charming UNESCO-listed neighborhood hailed as Granada’s historical heart. Admire grand Granada villas with their manicured gardens and elegant facades, and observe the distinct Moorish influence in this quaint quarter. 

Marvel at views of the illuminated Alhambra palace on its hilltop perch adjacent to Albacin, then stroll to the intriguing caves of Sacromonte. Originally inhabited by Spanish gypsies, the caves are famed for the perpetuation of feisty flamenco dancing. Appreciate the charm and character of the neighborhood and see the darkened interior of caves home to night flamenco demonstrations. 

After your enchanting exploration of the city, stop at one of Granada’s most popular tapas bars beside Plaza Nueva to enjoy a selection of Spanish specialties; feast upon a plate of local tapas and sip fine wine, beer or a soft drink as you absorb the ambient atmosphere of the eatery. Bid your guide and group farewell within the bar but feel free to stay and enjoy more tantalizing tapas.

One of the best tours I've been in Spain. Unbelievable place and an excellent guide. The night lights of Alhambra and the Gypsy homes are something I'll remember forever.

Never thought a walking tour would be this fun. Mar was exceptionally talented in this field and very patient with our neverending question about the historical events. She is the best and I would have happily asked to have her as our main and private tour guide for the AlHambra!

Too long

Tour is quite long for what it is. While I enjoyed the “history” lesson part, I just did not see much during the tour (other than a city street) to warrant all that walking through cobblestoned streets. If I did this again, I would take the bus or cab to the mirador San Nicholas to get the sunset view of Alhambra and walk to dinner then a flamenco show in the area.

Worth every penny! Be prepared to walk, flat shoes required, I did it in flip flops which were fine, but avoid heals at all costs! This provided stunning views of the Alhambra and surrounding area at sunset and our guide was knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting from start to finish.

The Granda evening walking tour is great way to get introduced to Granda and see some beautiful scenery. We really liked our guide Juan. He is very knowledgable and funny. It is quite a bit of walking up and down some hills, which we enjoyed. Granada has a fascinating history and is gorgeous in the evening. The views of the Alhambra at night are breathtaking.

Excellent tour and a great way to get oriented to the beautiful city of Granada!. Beatrice was a gem and made our evening walk through Sacromante and the Albaicin districts all the more special. The tour finishes at a local bar where we were served an excellent TAPAS and a drink. I would highly recommend this tour!!
