Private Tour: Alhambra and Generalife

Private Tour: Alhambra and Generalife

Depart from your Granada hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan or meet at a central departure point depending on which option you selected. Ascend to the high hilltop perch of Alhambra Palace, disembark the minivan and sail past long lines at the crowded entrance hall. Set out with your experienced guide to discover the architectural allure of the UNESCO-listed fortress. 

Plunge into the opulent palaces, vast courtyards and lavish gardens as you delve into the captivating history of the 9th century fortress; hear tales and trivia regarding decadent sultans, extravagant emirs and Moorish Kings who formerly inhabited the palace. 
Visit the complex’s most ancient enclave, the Alcazaba Fortress, in order to ascend the Torre de la Vela and admire spectacular views of the sprawling Spanish city. Stroll through opulent halls and expansive courtyards like the Patio de los Arrayanes and the Ambassador’s Hall; admire the architectural majesty of the Nasrid Palaces; and hear entertaining tales of eccentric emperor Charles V when you visit his eponymous palace. 

Wander the gorgeous Generalife Gardens and absorb the botanical beauty of the sculptured landscape; see the verdant splendor of the Patio de la Acequia and Patio de la Sultana, two beautiful courtyards; and gain insight into the exotic flowers and decadent shrubs that decorate the area. Return to the original departure point or enjoy convenient transportation back to your hotel when the tour concludes.   
Advance bookings are strongly recommended, as access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors each day.
