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.

When I booked this trip I was a frustrated as I was unable to obtain individual tickets for touring the Alhambra and purchasing the private tour was quite a bit more expensive. However, afterwords I feel that I lucked into the a good thing. The guide assisted in getting a wheel chair for my 80year old mother in law and was extremely patient with our subsequent slow speed of the tour. Also we learned so much more from the private tour guide, who provided answers to all our questions. Fantastic time!!!

You can't go to Granada without seeing the Alhambra. The tour company's meeting point is up the hill and a set of steps from the main entrance and the guards there can point you in the right direction. Our guide was pleasant and had many tales as you would expect. He was pleasant and considerate. My last visit was 44 years ago and the gardens are vastly improved.

The best tour I have ever been on ! The Alhambra is enchanting but with the Guide we had - Gustavo , it came alive ! Our guide had extensive knowledge which he shared in an easy and enjoyable way , his demeanor was really professional yet warm and easy , he invited questions and frankly made what could have been a stodgy walk into an exhilarating , enjoyable experience. This trip was absolutely worth every penny and we could not recommend more highly. Our guide met us early , helped us find coffee it was before 8 ! and then took us on our tour. Thank you we hope to visit Granada again.
