Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This day trip gives you more than just entry to the Alhambra; you get a guided tour of it, too.
Meet your guide at a centrally located meeting place or wait in your Malaga hotel lobby for a pickup. Then, travel toward Granada with your guide and group. The historic town is a must-visit stop on any Spain vacation, but it’s the Alhambra that’s Granada’s main calling card.

Set in the hills beneath the sweeping Sierra Nevada mountains, the Moorish palace is home to dazzling displays of Islamic architecture that have earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Discover the palace's standout sights on a tour, then check out the neighboring Charles V Palace and the Generalife Gardens. Have your camera ready to capture the vistas over Granada and Albaicin, the city’s old Muslim quarter.

Travel into Granada for a meal at your own expense, then make the most of some time at your leisure. After a Granada walking tour, you’ll return to your transport for the journey to Malaga. Your day trip ends back at the starting point.

Alhambra visit
, Oct 2019
The bus was late, and when we called Julia Travel, after some good minutes for finding someone speaking in English, a nervous lady told me there there are another 20 people waiting for the same bus, so why do I fuss about. As if the information that we are not the only ones left to wait in the street should have been enough. The guide was bossy, when he spoke, no one else was aloud to murmur:-), but well prepared for the trip. The local guide in Alhambra was a real pleasure! passionate about the topic, a lot of interesting information, an attentive approach toward us, so congrats!
Small group tour??
, Oct 2019
Booked through this website as advertised as small group tour. So was very surprised when 52 seater coach turned up, and there only appeared a couple of empty seats when we departed. El Alhambra itself is stunning though the tour itself is fast paced and we did have problems understanding the guide. Be warned on leaving the attraction there is a steep walk down to the town centre then after a couple of free hours in Granada another 20 minute walk back to the coach again at a fast pace. You have to be fit!!
A must tour

The Alhambra and the gardens were amazing and a must visit. The guides were very good, especially Andy who described the Alhambra and gardens very well.
Alhambra is nice, but visiting Granada was "nothing"

Alhambra Palace and the gardens was a nice experience, but the stop in Granada down town was 2,5 hours with no value.

It was all you can expect from a one-day trip. We've seen all of the Alhambra necessary parts (Nasrid Palaces included), and also a bit of Granada. A little bit rushed due to midday hours of visiting Alhambra, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Al Hambra tour

We, my sister 2 brothers sister in law and husband found the trip to Alhambra great. The bus, the tour guide on the bus was very attentive. His English was good and easy understood. The alhambra was magnificent and all be that we walked for 3 hours, it seemed like 30 minutes, we were so engrossed with the splendor of the place. I would recommend anyone to go and take the guided tour as the whole of the palaces and gardens are taken in.
Alhambra Palace

Very good site. The tour rushed us through the main Nasrid Palace, which was disappointing. Spent most of our time in the gardens!
Way to the Alhambra was not so great what once you are there it's amazing!

I would strongly recommend to remove the guy on the bus. Hearing random facts about the region in 4 different languages is very annoying, especially when he doesn't make a correct translation (at least the German version was very bad) The guide in the Alhambra was great! Perfect German and had very interesting stories about the place. We had a great time there! After the tour we had around 90 minutes in the city center which basically it's only enough for eating something. It could be better to just return one hour earlier.

The pickup was very smooth and the drive to Alhambra good and also offered one comfort stop. The tour guide Paco was very friendly, knowledgeable, spoke different languages clearly (including English) and gave us good commentary all the way there. The tour pick up from Alhambra was well managed and our guide was excellent. Note for some (not us) but there is a lot of walking and steep steps for those less able. Thoroughly enjoyable. What I didn’t like was the Granada town drop. There is no tour and virtually no guidance. The bus parking is too far from the centre of town and by that stage Paco was tired and probably only wanted lunch (perhaps understandably). Nonetheless it was a very disappointing component of the tourm
Excellent day trip
