What You Can Expect

Granada Day Trip including Alhambra and Generalife Gardens from Seville

Generalife Gardens, Granada

Depart from your centrally located Seville hotel in a luxury, air-conditioned coach and relax during the journey to Granada; get acquainted with the city’s intriguing history as your guide provides interesting commentary and you arrive outside the magnificent Alhambra palace complex. Take a moment to admire the rose-tinted hue of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed monument’s exterior and gaze at the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Head inside and embark on a guided tour of the complex and its richly ornamented chambers; hear tales of extravagant emperors in the Nasrid Palaces; note the contrasting Renaissance style of the Palace of Charles V; and then stroll amid the botanical beauty of the Generalife Gardens, verdant gardens replete with exotic flowers and distinctive water features. 

Suitably impressed, exit the palace and enjoy two hours of leisurely free time in Granada. Revitalize with a typical Spanish lunch (own expense) and then return to your comfortable vehicle for the journey back to Seville. 

Please note: access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors each day. For this reason advance bookings are strongly recommended.

Absolutely excellent the guides made this a memorable trip and I recommend it for anyone staying in Seville and wanting to visit the Alhambra.Only downside at the time was learning the night before that pickup had been switched from 10 to 630,but I would suggest when booking to nevertheless take the earlier time as you will see the palace at a much more attractive time of day and still be back for the evening in Seville.
Thank you!

Great tour. The day included just the right amount of time to see both Alhambra with the gardens and for Granada city center. The guides for both the bus ride and Alhambra were funny and very informative. The ride is long but the trip is 100 worth the ride for the Alhambra alone. Definitely would recommend. Note: Seville does not open early but do not worry about finding a place to grab breakfast as this tour stops halfway through the ride to Alhambra at a rest stop and includes time to get food.

Javier was very personable and knowledgeable. Saad was a safe driver. The woman who did the commentary for our tour in the amazing Alhambra was quite competent and pleasant. Would definitely recommend the trip for someone looking for a day trip to Granada without the worry of making arrangements and getting tickets. .

Great tour of the Alhambra. The tour company was great - super friendly and accommodating for everyone's needs. The day does run long as you start at 8:30/9am and we didn't get back until close to 8pm. Def recommend!

The Alhambra and Generalife Gardens are just spectacular and the guide was truly an expert in the history and the archaeology/anthropology. The stories that unfold as the tour progresses is very interesting. The buildings themselves are the stars and they are amazing to walk through. The Granada stopover was a non-event although allowed for lunch but did not detract from the main event. The bus trip from Seville is long but the tour co-ordinator made a valiant attempt to make it interesting and there were a few nuggets provided along the way.

This was a fabulous tour! We were transported by air conditioned coach to Alhambra. They had a lot of people to pick up so it was quite an early start.

The guide in Alhambra was brilliant! Excellent clear English and used the wireless headsets so we didn't have to strain to listen. Excellent day!
