My family and I had a wonderful day at the Alhambra. Our tour guide, Juan was knowledgeable and funny. My 14 year old was engaged throughout the tour! If youre ever traveling through Granada make sure to book your tour with Viator!

I booked the skip the line ENGLISH tour of the Alhambra SEVERAL weeks before the Sat., March 3, 2018 tour and got a voucher/email confirmation. To be blunt, Viator's local partner, Amigo Tours Spain, COMPLETELY dropped the ball. When we got there, we were divided into 2 groups, based on the language we spoke. There were 25 Spanish speakers and about 12 English speakers. Apparently a guide can only have about 30 people in a tour group. Our guide frantically called someone to get another guide to come...but no one was available...and worse, Amigo Tours had not even purchased tickets for the entire group so they couldn't just go by themselves w/o a guide. We were one of the lucky English-speaking ones....since there were about 5 slots open in the Spanish group. The guide promised us that the tour would end at the same time, even though now she had to speak in both Spanish and English. She did her best....but she was rushed. At least we got to go on the tour the remainder of the English-speaking group, some of whom were only in Granada for THAT day, were turned away. Yes, their money was refunded, but they missed out on this amazing site. I would NEVER again go on a Viator tour that partnered with Amigo Tours. My advice is to stay away from any Viator tour that lists Amigo Tours as its local partner.

Unfortunately, we were pretty disappointed with this tour. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ENGLISH TOURISTS.

The main issue being that we were not aware that the tour would be bilingual. In a large group of at least 20 others or more, we were the ONLY English speakers. It was awkward as the guide would spend a large amount of the tour explaining things in Spanish, and then quickly give the English translation.
It seemed obvious that we were not getting as much information as the Spanish group.

Additionally, we just felt awkward as we felt like we were holding the rest of the tour back as they had to wait for us to have everything explained again in English.

I also felt that our guide was not that informative, and I learned more about the Alhambra reading about it on Wikipedia after the tour.

Disappointed with Viator... I thought it would be a trusted way to book local tours. However, after this experience, I just don't know if I would book through them again.

The tour was great and our guide was very kind and knowledgeable. We booked the English tour but it ended up being a bilingual tour. Our guide Natasha made sure that each group received equal attention which made me very happy because sometimes a tour like this can become lopsided.

We had a great English-speaking tour guide. She added a lot of humor as well as all the history that we could imagine. Had lots of fun and the place is amazing!

Be sure to read the fine print! This tour only includes the outside of the Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens. You will NOT see the place, which is what you expect from all the photos. If you are going, make sure you see the Palace. This was definitely not worth the money and priority access meant nothing because everyone entered at same time. I did not read the fine print, so my bad, but be aware.

Although when I scheduled our tour I was apprehensive that it would not be worth the price I paid, I was not disappointed. The guide was excellent, he was knowledgeable, easy to hear and understand and somewhat witty. We learned much in our tour, not only about the buildings and architecture, but much about the culture that produced this magnificent complex. I feel very happy I made this investment.
