Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Granada Day Trip from Seville Including Skip-the-Line Entrance to Alhambra Palace and Optional Albaicin Walking Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We were picked up on time and transported in a small mini bus to Alhambra. The three hour journey was well worth the effort and we felt our money was very well spent for an excellent tour. The guide was excellent explaining everything. We had ample time in the gardens and the palace, not feeling rushed at all.
The only negative was when dropped in Granada for free time in the afternoon it was a long walk to find a suitable place for lunch which used up a lot of our time.

The bus was very comfortable and our guide was awesome! We did lunch on our own. Alhambra was amazing...definitely recommend this tour! Plenty of time to explore, tour guide was excellent, and the group was small enough to make it a pleasure to meet and get to know some of the other travelers :)
Well organized trip. The bus was on time. And for us the most important thing , that we did not stay in lines and our guide was knowledgeable. it took the whole day , but really very interesting. Don't miss it!
A very informative and intensive tour. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and accommodating. A fairly long tour but never boring. The finale at the Sagrada Familia was mind blowing. Would highly recommend
The trip was great.
Apparently aviator doesn't run the trip itself. It assigned me to a local company. They were on time. It was a small group 5-6 ppl. The driver was super friendly. On our way to Granada, we stopped over for breakfast.
We arrived at alhambra palace and it was overcrowded. They handed us to a Guide for 2-3 hours. I also signed for Albayzan tour. Another guide showed us around the albazan. He was great. We walked all the way to top of albayzan and we stopped for lunch and desserts.
After the tour, the bus was ready to go back to seville, I had a hotel reservation in albazan for teh night. I picked my bags from the bus and the guide helped me find the hotel (casa Bomba).
One thing I encountered is that the guide were not aware of Aviator in terms of what I signed but I sowed them the papers, etc.
I didn't go back to seville. I stayed in albaycan, it was fantatsic.
My parents and I went in this trip with Silvia (guide) and Alex (driver).
We enjoyed a lot. Silvia was great. My parents don't understand English very well and she was kind enough (and patient) to translate everything in Spanish, even though they were the only ones that needed this translation.
We definitely recommend this trip to Granada. The place is beautiful and amazing.
A "must do" if you ever come to Seville.
The trip was long (3 hours each way), but worth it. Our guide, who spoke perfect English, introduced the nine of us to each other and to the driver of our small bus. We got the promised skip-the-line entry (in fact, there were no individual tickets available), and could understand our Alhambra guide via audio receiver in spite of heavy crowds. The tour bus picked us up at an agreed-upon landmark in Sevilla (hotel street was too narrow) and re-delivered us there within the timeframe we were given. The Alhambra is a must-see.
The tour was well organized.
And the tour guide was nice, cheerful and welcoming.
After all it was a good experience.
Driver Alex and Tour Guide Silvia were both so great! Silvia is filled with interesting information, spoken in beautiful English - from the start of our bus ride to the moment we returned to Seville (but with plenty of quiet time on the bus so that we all could get some rest). It's a very long day, but so worth it if this is your only way to see Alhambra/Generalife. We also added the walking tour of Albaicin - also worth it. The only downside was that because of heavy traffic in Grenada (due to preparations for Semana Santa), our time in Albaicin was very shortened (so that we could have time to eat lunch). This was a wonderful day!!
We had such a great time and a very knowledgeable guide. It was nice to sit back and let someone else handle all the details. It is a long day, but staged in a way that made it all enjoyable. I was with an older parent and a teen and they both enjoyed themselves-which means I did!
