This tour is not to be missed. It was humbling to walk through this complex that is one thousand years old. It was really beautiful as well. Our driver was very nice and professional. Our tour guide was so informative. It was obvious he was passionate about his job and desired to educate us about the history of the Alhambra and Granada. Awesome experience.

I would highly recommend a private tour to see the Alhambra. Our guide was wonderful, her English was good and she provided interesting and informative pointers throughout the trip. The drive from Marbella was just under two hours and it flew by as we started to understand more of Spain and its colourful history. As for the ride home our guide suggested that we nap and it was very much appreciated. The Alhambra itself is amazing. We viewed the gardens and made our way around the entire site in three hours. We were also provided a short break to get some refreshments.
