What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Alhambra Tour and Granada Hammam

Massage

Depart from your Granada hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and relax during the scenic journey to Alhambra’s elevated perch. Ascend the steep La Sabica hill and feel your excitement heighten as you approach the majestic monument; marvel at the distinct architectural tableau and lavish gardens before embarking upon your exploration of the 13th-century fortress.

Sail past the long lines of the crowded entrance hall and follow your guide through opulently decorated rooms. Admire the intricate design of the Nasrid Palaces, palatial structures named after members of the Nasrid dynasty; ascend to the ancient tower at the Alcazaba Fortress and absorb spectacular views of the city of Granada; and enjoy tales of an eccentric emperor as you tour the majestic Palace of Charles V. 

Next, venture to the visionary and verdant Generalife Gardens to observe exotic plants and fascinating flowers. Envisage extravagant monarchs relaxing among the botanical beauty of the area and wander leisurely with your informative guide.

After your tour of the palace complex, return to your hotel and enjoy a leisurely few hours and lunch (own expense). At the pre-arranged time, make your own way to Hammam Al Andalus, Granada’s luxurious Arab baths. Submerge yourself in the warm waters of seven pools, all of which are elaborately decorated with colorful tiles. Plunge into icy pools and upgrade to enjoy an indulgent massage sure to soothe aching muscles.   

Explore the city independently or return to your hotel after your tranquil experience in the serene spa.

Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. Victor's tour was both educational and fun. His passion for the Alhambra comes through so strongly and his delivery of the tour sounds a fresh as the first time, even though he must have done it so many times. He answered all our questions with a wealth of information and knowledge. We look forward to coming back again. The Arab bathes were also a wonderful experience and again, all the staff were so warm and friendly. I would definitely use Viator again and recommend you to others. Thank you for helping to make our trip such a great one.

I recommend doing a guided tour, rather than using the audio guide. It is much better having a guide to tell you about the history of granada and so you can ask questions. I really recommend the tour. Antonio was our tour guide and he was very, very good.

The Hammam baths were beautiful, and very relaxing after all the walking you do around Alhambra! Just sensational.

Wonderful tour. Amazing tour guide and friendly and assistive staff. Highly recommend. The alhambra is out of this world and this is the group to discover it with. As for the Granada Hammam (Arab Baths) they were an experience to die for. Otherworldly and relaxing.

This was just a wonderful experience in so many ways. If you are in Granda, this is a must tour.

The entire experience was great!! We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the Alhambra, where we were separated into groups based on the language of our tour. Our guide spoke perfect English, knew his stuff and was funny as well. The Alhambra is a very large complex of buildings and going with a guide is a good idea and a timeasver. I think that if I went on my own I either would have missed sites and information, or it would have taken forever reading through a guidebook as I walked. As it was, the tour lasted over three hours....so there is much to see. My travel companion (my fifteen year old son) also loved this tour. No one visiting southern Spain should miss going to the Alhambra......it is an architectural and historical gem that leaves a memorable impression.
The add on of the hammam was worth the money, even if you only have an hour or so before they ask you to leave. After the three or four miles you walk on the Alhambra tour, your body welcomes the pampering and relaxation of of the hammam. Pools of water, a steam room, soft music, candlelight, the sound of water cascading into the pools all put you in a good mood. Plus, you'll need a shower anyway after touring the Alhambra in ninety degree weather!
In all I'd recommend the tour to anyone who will be in Granada!

The tour was fantastic..I really enjoyed it and the tour guide was passionate and explained every part of the tour with much detail and compassion. Will recommend anytime. Not sure about the massage seemed less than what I expected.

Alberto was a great guide. He was very informative. I felt we had the best tour of any of the other guides that I witnessed. After we left Alberto we were on our wn to find the Hammam. The check in was very disorganized. If you didn't speak Spanish you would not know what to do. Get to the Hamman early as people were lined up out the door when we arrived 20 minutes before our reservation time. Don't assume your Hamman visit is directly after the Alhambra tour. Ask what time they made your reservation. Our reservation was not until 6pm. After understanding what to do we had a great time.
