This was our first time in Granada and the conducted tour of the Alhambra and Generallife was a great investment. Our guide was expert and efficient and very open to questions. He was certainly able to bring the wonderful history of the place aliveso that the whole experience was quite exhilarating

It is really a good tour. The staff speak fluent English and the information was helpful. Although the bus didn't come to pick me because it was broken, the agency paid the taxi fee for me. Worth the price

Our guide Patricia was very knowledgeable and spoke English well. Our son said it was a much more informative tour than one he had taken on a previous visit to Granada. The tour was well-organized we were picked up on time from our hotel and entered the palace at the time on our ticket without having to wait. It was a great tour and we recommend it without reservations.

An excellent tour, not to be missed! Our hotel pick up was on time, however, we had to return to one hotel to pick up people who were not ready the first time we stopped there. Once we got to the tour office, there was some confusion in getting people into groups - I felt sorry for the ladies trying to organise everyone - but one can understand the importance of restricting each group to 30. Our tour guide Esther was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable - she obviously loves Granada, the Alhambra and the Gardens. We had 2 1/2 hours visiting the Generalife Gardens and Alcazaba before our allotted entry time to the Alhambra - loved every minute of the afternoon. We took the option to walk back down into town.

I never use tours on my vacations, but this one was necessary due to limited tickets being available. It turned out to be a great opportunity to hear more about the history of the Alhambra and the tour was very relaxed and comprehensive. There were no sales pitches and the guide encouraged us to stay and visit the site as long as we wanted following the tour.

The Alhambra and Generalife is a wonderful experience and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff at Granavision were very friendly and helpful and the guide, Alberto, was excellent. Unusually, besides being very knowledgeable about the site and the history of the area, he also had an encyclopedic knowledge of the plants and flowers in the grounds. It added a layer of depth to the tour.

The tour is a little rushed and the palaces themselves are fantastic, but crammed full of people. The Alhambra do a creditable job of limiting the number of tourists they allow in per day, but it still ends up being a scrum in the palace buildings. My advice would be to do the tour and then to do a second visit without a tour as you will then have your bearings and will be able to take your time through the gardens and other parts of the site. It is huge and gorgeous.

I highly recommend this tour and Alberto, the guide.

This was the third Viator booking on this trip to Spain and Italy. Our tour guide was a native of Granada and extremely knowledgeable. it was obvious that he loves his job and loves explaining this place to visitors.

Our group of 5 adults absolutely loved this tour, and our tour guide Alberto. He was thoroughly knowledgeable about the history as well as the structures and even the botany! He was extremely pleasant as well. I don't believe we would have understood the importance of the site without his guidance. Well worth it.

The tour was great! We got so much more out of the Alhambra with our very knowledgeable and professional guide than we ever would have on our own. The tour is kind of expensive, but it was defiantly worth it. I would recommend it to anybody that wants to go beyond the surface of the Alhambra.

Enjoyed this tour immensely. Although it was a late group and we ended up in the family read people with kids tour, our guide was knowledgeable and very talented in keeping the group together. He managed to cover a great deal of material and distance in the time allotted. He was very helpful in directing us to our desired destinations after. When a second group of customers were returning late, they sprung for a cab back to town so the rest of us could get on with our wanderings around Grenada.

We were picked up from outside our hotel which was included in the tour, so it saved us driving and parking.
On arrival we were taken to get earpieces so we could hear the guide and put in a English speaking group.
The tour lasted about 3hrs and Eduardothink that was the guides namegave us a break half way through for a drink etc and think it was so he could give his voice a break as he never stopped talking as we went around explaining in detail the history of the AlhambraI take my hat off to him he was a brilliant guide.
The Alhambra is one of the most breathtaking places to visit, steeped in history with fantastic views over Granada. Dont just take my word go visit its a must,you wont be disappointed.
