Our guide was so good. We spent several hours in the Alhambra. He was very knowledgeable. He took great care to translate into English for us. We really appreciated the care taken by the company to get us from the ship in Malaga to Granada in time for the tour in the afternoon. Everyone was friendly
The journey is like tike travel to centuries.. perfect for family with kids of one day outing on bus to have an overview of the city with limited timeframe

This is a must see city....The hop on and off bus is the way to go....you get an audio tour and get to stop anywhere the bus stops...it was easy and convenient and way less expensive than the cruise ship excursions....
We had wanted to revisit the Alhambra since we had been there on our honeymoon 40 years earlier. The Viator price
was about 1/3 the cost of what the cruise ship fees were... and we got so much more - the guide was most informative and professional-
and our group was half the size of the cruise group tour. He answered every question and we received such personal attention.
Given this experience, we will choose Viator for all our future travel needs.
First class tour with excellent tour guides and driver. Highly recommended. Felt totally safe. Very comfortable, spotless bus. Maria, our Alhambra tour guide, were outstanding...very informative, personable and prompt. Our bus tour guide, Rafael, was informative with a great sense of humor and made our round trip interesting and relaxing.
The guide was outstanding in his knowledge and information and the driver was excellent. The local guide at the Alhambra was excellent as well. This was a great excursion!

We visited this farm on a private tour from our cruise ship. Great drive in the countryside to reach the breeding farm. The owner is actually a bull fighter as well as breed horses and bulls. Was taken all over the farm with explanations of all the animals and why certain things are the way they are. There is a small bull ring on site, we got to see inside but there was no demonstration on, on the day. Also had a light lunch of a plough mans plate with wine. Excellent.
This was the best way to see the beautiful city of Malaga.
Loved this tour. A bus picked up up in Malaga and took us to Granada. Our tour guide was exceptional. She brought the palace to life and was so enthused about her subject matter. She was excellent at keeping track of all 15 of us and was constantly counting to verify she did not leave anyone behind. The palace was gorgeous and she discussed the history of the place, which I appreciated. We had a long history lesson regarding both Granada but also Spain in general.
We loved the Malaga Hop On Hop Off Tour bus. IOne of the stops was extremely close to where our ship was docked.
Just love this way of seeing a city quickly when you only have a day to do so. Very good commentary.
Our favorite means of transportation throughout the city! Guides and drivers are always very nice.
Great tour. Didn't need to stop for coffie and bsthroom break on way up. Tour guide was excellent.
This tour provided a quick overview of some key places - just as it promised!
On an exceptionally hot day, riding on the top deck was very refreshing when
we were moving - ideal, too, for cameras! Thank you!
Great value and allows you to see almost everything.
Don't walk! Take the bus! The best way to see this gorgeous city! Not too far from the pier. You do have to walk a little way. Buses come on time. Easy to use.
I am disabled and use a motorized scooter and I was traveling alone with my 82 year old mother. The plus about this tour was that the bus stop was conveniently located near the ship. I just stayed on the bus and did a complete circle trip and feel like I really saw Malaga. The bus driver was very kind assisting me on and off the bus. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent guide pick up at port and all round service.
This was the best way to explore since we were only in port for a few hours. We saw all the important stuff and had a great time.
Well-run tour, with informative and helpful guides throughout. The site itself is remarkable and we were never concerned that we would not be returned to the ship in good time.

Having been on several cruises, I now look for options other than the cruise ships shore excursion at ports. This tour seemed very similar to a shore excursion offered by the NCL, but cheaper and better quality. The only difference seemed to be the NCL shore excursion had a photo stop at the Albaycin district in Granada.
The tour guide met us as we got off the ship and exited the cruise terminal. She was originally from England and talked the whole coach ride to Granada, was really very informative and it made the 2 hours seem to go by quicker. I will say that we had 31 people on the coach, so contrary to the Viator tour description, this tour is not limited to 18. We did break into 2 groups of 17 and 14 for the actual tour inside the Alhambra, so that is what they are referring to. Although I am not sure if all group tours inside the Alhambra are limited to small groups.
At the Alhambra, our English tour guide handed us off to the Alhambra guides. Our groups guide was Daniel, and he was quite entertaining and we had a great tour. We did not have any wait to get inside the Alhambra, and had timed tickets for the main palace, so it is really skip-the line. After our tour of the Alhambra complex about 2.5 hours we met back up with our English guide and the coach and were dropped off in Granada for about an hours free time to grab lunch. Not really long enough for anything but tapas or another quick bite. We left Granada at 3:00 for the 2 hour ride back to Malaga. Our English guide was quiet so everyone could relax and nap. We made it back by 5:00, so a full 30 minutes before last call to be on board. I will say our guide was very conscientious of the time and is friends with the cruise ships shore excursion guides, so is aware of what time they leave Granada and made sure our coach departed Granada before they did. So even if we had run into traffic, the cruise ships coaches would have been behind us. So no worries about missing the ship.
HOHO is the only reasonable way to get an overview of a city. I had not been there in years and it was fun to see the new and old side by side. We spent over an hour at the Gibralfaro castle - wonderful views from the ramparts and a quite lovely small museum.
Excellent. I highly recommend this tour. Our guides were outstanding and very knowledgeable!
