Our tour guide Emilio, was very kind and answered all of our questions. He knew a lot about the place and adapted his schedule to ours. It was totally worth it, and I would happily repeat the experience.

Our guide was Carlos and he was outstanding. We are interested in a deeper history than what is normally given by a guide and he was perfect for us. Carlos has a degree in middle eastern and Islamic studies and also reads Arabic. He made the tour much more enjoyable and informative for us. A+

This tour was great! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We took our tour in the morning and this was a great time of day to be there as it wasn't super crowded yet. We really enjoyed seeing this beautiful area and learning about the history and culture. Having a tour guide gave the experience a personal touch and helped us to learn more as we went through the complex.

The Alhambra is magnificent and our tour was more enjoyable because of our excellent guide, Bianca. She had obviously studied the history of not only the Alhambra but the Moors in Andalucia and the reconquista and was able to provide historical facts, context, and little stories about the various players that really brought history alive. Bianca pointed out and explained the architecture, the intricacies of the decorations, and the symbolism. She was very enthusiastic and engaging and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

Somehow, we got the time for our tour confused and arrived over an hour late. Entrance times to the Alhambra are rigidly enforced, but somehow our guide Gus got us in, and gave us a great high-speed tour. Gus was very informative, spoke perfect English, dealt with our lateness calmly, and gave us a great tour.

Extremely interesting and fascinating tour. We could bypass all queues and even gain entry to restricted areas. It is worth investing in a guided tour in a small group. Very little if any English is spoken by the staff who will rattle off a litany in Spanish to your simplest of requests leaving you completely bewildered. On the other hand if your Spanish is good you have no worries. I was surprised at the lack of English in a world heritage site. Try and book early tours to avoid huge crowds and selfie stick wielding fellow tourists out to blind you!

Our tour was fantastic! We booked it simply because regular tickets for the Alhambra were sold out, but it was a great decision. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. She ended the tour and gave us time to revisit much of the complex on our own. Highly recommend.

We had a private tour with Blanca and she was absolutely fabulous! Her knowledge of Alhambra and the history of the Moors and Spain was amazing. She made the tour very interesting and we would recommend the tour to anyone going to Alhambra. Definitely ask for Blanca! Alhambra was magnificent and a must see if you are in Spain.

I'm so glad we selected this private tour even though the cost was high the value was well worth it. Our guide Eduardo was very familiar with the Gardens and the Palace, so we learned about everything. This historic site was incredible to see first hand, our tour lasted 3 hours with several breaks to rest and shop while inside the grounds. We thought that going at the beginning of the off season it would be less crowded but all the tours were booked for the day and the crowds were everywhere. We drove up from Malaga in the morning for our 2:00pm tour, we should have stayed the night in Granada so we could see more of the city.

Gustavo was an excellent guide. His enthusiasm for and love of the Alhambra gave us a wonderful insight into the history, construction and design of the Alhambra. His command of English is extremely good.

Maria was truly a wonderful guide, she was full of knowledge, we learnt allot from her. she made me live the past with her stories about Alhambra.
It was an amazing, especially it rained that day, so the whole atmosphere was wonderful, rain, Fog, the smell of the trees it was spectacular and a life time trip.
I hope i can make it to Alhambra again. and for sure i would love of Maria to be our guide again because she was wonderful and we would not have enjoyed the Alhambra as much without her information.
Thanx Maria

Our tour guide was wonderful and we would not have enjoyed the Ihambra as much without her information. The only frustrating thing is the reservation said go the the Grandvision, but not that it was on a side street from the Ihambra ticket place. We stopped into 4 places and nobody could tell us where to go to get these tickets. We finally got a manager of some kind and he directed us to the side street where the office was located.

We use Viator mainly for private tours as we have two young kids. And this time again weve been delightet by the custom timing and guides ability to adjust speed and direction of information to our interests and needs. TIP: book the first tour in the morning otherwise temperature in Granada/Alhambra can get easily to 40 degrees Celsius 104 Farenheit.

We took a private tour with Ester. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly she really helped bring history to life. She was also very patient and considerate of my parents who were with us and needed to go slowly with frequent rest breaks. I would highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful experience! Our guide Gustavo was very knowledgeable and very nice. The tour turned out to be for our family only and that was a plus! Definitely recommend!

Truly an amazing day. Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and willing to answer any and all questions. My husband is a graduate level professor and his specialty is the Middle East. This was the perfect place for him. We loved the palaces and all the structures we were able to see. How awe inspiring to see these places!!! We went at our own pace and our guide was there when we needed her. Would recommend this private tour to anyone. Forget the group tours. This is the one to take. We will remember this tour for years to come. The true highlight of our six weeks vacation.
