We had a lovely tour guide called Conchi who made the tour interesting and fun. The Alhambra and Generlife is a must see and we are so glad we booked a private tour because as a party of 4 we were able to hear and see what was going on and it felt more personal. It is one of the few tours I would actually do again, the Alhambra itself is breath-taking.
Antonio provided insightful historic commentary for a delightful 4 hour tour. We learned so much while being mesmerized by one spectacular scene after another. He took photos of the four of us and we enjoyed seeing the shots he took himself. We appreciated visiting the Generalife in the cool morning and we enjoyed bypassing the lines as we moved from the gardens into the Alhambra. We all appreciated learning about the ingenuity of the design of the Alhambra and the significance of all of the water features. We all highly recommend taking the private tour as it gave us a very special memory of one of the most beautiful places in the world. We booked the tour over a month in advance we had heard that tickets sold out for any of the tours and it was true.
To really appreciate the history and symbolism of this remarkable place, the extravagance of a private tour with your own guide is truly justified. Our guide, Beatriz Arenas, met us at the office just outside the Alhambra and whisked us through into the Generalife and thence to the Alhambra complex. Bea told us it had been her childhood dream to work there and now she is living that dream and, through her passion for and knowledge of Spain's Moorish past, brings history to life for her visitors. She was very patient with our non-stop questions and had an answer for everything. A delightful companion on our tour, which was over all too soon.
We enjoyed an excellent guided tour of the Alhambra with Marie-Pax. She showed us every aspect of the Palace and explained every
detail of the decoration of each building. The tour took 5 hours and we covered 6 kms during that time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and willingly provided all the answers to our questions. We had booked a private tour for 4 people and with this there was no queue or waiting, we went straight in with our guide who was waiting for us at the visitor's entrance. Otherwise the queue waiting to buy entrance tickets was very long. The gardens which are part of the Alhambra grounds are kept well tended by 600 gardeners. There are many gardens to visit, some with fountains and long lengths of water reflecting the blooms on either side.
We had a memorable visit and are so glad to have had the opportunity to experience the Alhambra for ourselves.
Wow! Private tour was the way to see Alhambra. We booked through Viator in Canada and we didnt have any issues. Our knowledgeable and handsome guide, Asier, was an excellent story teller providing us with a wealth of information on history, architecture, and life in Alhambra. The tour was surprisingly very relaxing, not rushed, and super enjoyable. Thank you for making it an unforgettable experience!

This was my second trip to the Alhambra and Generalife did the skip the line tour last summer. Have to say that the private tour was even better than I expected! My family and I thought it was amazing with the more in-depth knowledge and information that our guide provided. Antonio was the perfect host who - he made us feel like close friends and treated us like royalty! I will be back in the future and it will always be via the private tour.
Outstanding!!! The Alhambra is such a sublime place - how could you not love it? Our guide was the best - so knowledgeable and communicative. He clearly loves the place and wants to share his feeling with visitors.
Our tour with Gustavo was fantastic. His knowledge and passion about the Alhambra made the tour very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Our guide , Blanca, was incredibly good! Her English and her knowledge of Alhambra and its history was outstanding. She was also very personable and attractive. Well worth the money for a private tour!!!
This tour was fantastic and worth every dollar. We took a private tour and Sergio was our guide. He conducted this tour with enthusiasm and a fantastic knowledge. The tour was undertaken at our pace, that is, we could look, linger, ask questions and take photographs at a comfortable pace. Sergio was extremely accommodating and happy to answer all of our questions. Even the more technical and obscure questions my husband can often pose. An astonishingly beautiful place, made all the better by our guide. I can't praise him enough. Hint: go early in the morning to avoid the intense heat.
