Overview

Visit Granada’s Alhambra Palace on this full-day coach trip from Seville. Skip the line at the UNESCO-listed fortress wedged between Granada and the Sierra Nevada mountains, and take a guided tour of its attractions, including the Nasrid Palace, Alcazabar and Generalife Gardens. See the Moorish salons, courtyards and pavilions, learn about their history and break to purchase lunch in central Granada. Upgrade to finish with a walking tour of Albaicin, the city’s whitewashed Moorish quarter, with its narrow streets, flower-filled squares and spectacular Alhambra views.
  • Day trip from Seville to Granada
  • Discover UNESCO World Heritage-listed Alhambra Palace
  • Enjoy skip-the-line entrance to Alhambra’s Nasrid Palace, Alcazaba fortress, Generalife Gardens and Palace of Charles V
  • Marvel at courtyards filled with flowers, fountains and pavilions featuring Moorish architecture
  • Take an optional walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Albaicin quarter
  • Round-trip hotel transport by comfortable, air-conditioned coach included
Select your tour option when you book. Then, start your experience with a pickup from your central Seville hotel or alternatively, from a meeting point in central Seville.

Settle aboard your air-conditioned coach and admire the rugged Andalucian countryside as you journey to Granada. Along the way, hear an introduction to your destination’s history, and learn how your route is the same as the one taken by the 19th-century American essayist Washington Irving, author of the famous Tales of the Alhambra.


Catch glimpses of the Alhambra Palace on your approach to Granada and, on arrival, enjoy a guided walking tour of this UNESCO-listed gem. Bypass the entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket, and enjoy priority access to its main attractions, including the Alcazaba, Nasrid Palace, Generalife Gardens and Palace of Charles V.

A vision of Moorish architecture and art, this exquisite complex dates back to the 13th century, and was built as a royal city, court and retreat for Spain’s Moorish rulers. Admire the Court of Lions and Hall of the Ambassadors, and stroll around the enchanting courtyards, fountains and pavilions as your guide shares details of their history.

Next, drive to the center of Granada to enjoy lunch (own expense). Then, depending on your chosen tour option, take a guided walk of the UNESCO-protected Albaicin quarter, Granada’s old Moorish district.

Stroll down the narrow streets past whitewashed houses, churches, gardens and flower-filled balconies, and stop to take in the area’s spectacular panoramas over the hilltop Alhambra.

Afterward, hop back in your coach and drive back to Seville where your tour finishes at the start point.

Great day. Long - 13+ hours. But everything went smoothly. Petra kept us all in line with good humor. I had a great guide at Alhambra; not sure everyone else in our group from Seville had such a great experience with the assigned official guide.

The Alhambra was spectacular but the guide on site was horrible. He was disengaged and lacking in any enthusiasm and alternative information. The guide on the bus, Pepe was fabulous and made the walking tour of Albazyn so special and his overall knowledge throughout the tour was fantastic. If we had Pepe the whole time I would have given this tour a 5.

We really enjoyed this tour! Both our bus guide Pepe and local guide Gustavo were amazing! Gustavo was entertaining and kept us moving, but we felt rushed. There was not a lot of time to take photos and just enjoy the beautiful Alhambra palace. If you have more time during your travel in Spain, then we recommend you to spend an entire day here and do a self-guided tour. However, if you only have one day for Granada, then this is a great option! We definitely recommend taking the optional Albaicin tour. The Albaicin neighborhood is amazing and you will come across a beautiful view of the Alhambra palace.

This is the perfect way to see the Alhambra, especially since train access to Granada is still not available. It is a group, bus tour with one guide for the bus ride and city tour, and a different guide while at the Alhambra. The ride is about 3 hours from Seville with a stop half-way at a very nice, clean rest stop. After this stop, the very knowledgeable guide explains the itinerary and mentions points of interest along the remainder of the ride to Granada. If you do not book the optional city tour, you had an hour of free time in the downtown area before going to the Alhambra. I would recommend doing the optional tour because you see the beautiful narrow streets, can taste some local cuisine and can take pictures of the Alhambra from a look-out point.

The Alhambra is a marvel to see with it's amazing architecture, ornate walls and ceilings, and beautiful gardens, including the Generalife. This part of the tour is about 3 hours and our guide, Antonio, was both informative and amusing. My only recommendation is to prepare for lots of walking. This is NOT for anyone with walking disabilities which is stated on the voucher. There was a disabled gentleman in our group who was unable to see most of the Alhambra it was too physically demanding and wheelchair use is difficult.

Our guide from Seville to Granada was Abby and she was great, but the actual tour guide at the Alhambra was not good. He was very difficult to understand and was very dry and boring. He didn’t welcome questions and wasn’t engaging. Also our tour was in English and Spanish and therefore he had to repeat everything twice which seemed to take a lot time. But, the bus and the organization of the trip itself went smoothly so our only complaint was the tour guide who we spent 3 hrs with!
