What You Can Expect
Head past the Alhambra’s long entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket, and start with a look at the oldest part of the complex, Alcazaba Fortress with its myriad of ramparts and towers. Gaze out at the city of Granada from the fortress walls and explore its walkways with your guide.
Continue to the Nasrid Palaces, a set of magnificent Moorish buildings that you’ll admire in all their glory. Comprising of three different buildings, the palaces each boast elaborate function rooms and opulent Islamic art. Look out at the sky from the windows of Mexuar Palace and learn of the extravagant lives of the emirs and sultans who once lived here.
From the Nasrid Palaces, stroll outside to Generalife Gardens to check out where the Moorish kings of bygone days once relaxed. Featuring abundant flora and distinctive water features, the gardens also comprise two further courtyards, which you’ll see, the Patio de la Acequia and the Patio de la Sultana.
After 2.5 hours enjoying the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens, return to your minivan for the journey back to Malaga. Your shore excursion finishes with a drop-off at the port.

We met the tour guide in Alhambra after taking the bus in Malaga. The driver was not very good and could not find the guide in Alhambra and left some tour member at the port. Alhambra is also very much over rated.
The Alhambra was worth seeing but our trip was very disorganized. We were told to meet by 8:00 am, others told 8:30-9:00, others never told. We waited for 45+ minutes to get started on our tour to Granada. We enjoyed our local guide and she was very knowledgeable. We did not appreciate the way the trip was organized.
