Given the crowds at the Alhambra, having a tour guide is a practical necessity to get you through lines and to the best locations. And it definitely improves the experience to understand the history and art on the site, especially for those who are unfamiliar with Spanish history.
From pick up to drop off, everything about the tour was first rate. Our guide, Sergio, was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining.
We had a great tour and a wonderful guide. He was knowledgable and made sure we kept to our schedule so that we didn't miss our entrance time.
Our tour guide Marina was fabulous- very knowledgable, relaxed, and truly seemed to enjoy sharing the history of this amazing place. We were a small group of six which made it very special. Highly recommend this rather than a large tour group.
Excellent private guided tour. Alberto was knowledgeable, friendly and ez to be with. Highly recommend doing the Alhambra this way...we learned so much!
Our guide was Gustavo and he was witty, funny, personable and knowledgeable. We were a group of 4 and we can't say enough good things about this tour and our guide. We learned about spanish history, the history of Granada, and of course saw the beautiful palaces and the Generalife. I highly recommend this tour!
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!!!
Excellent tour. Bea clearly knows and loves the Alhambra and Generalife. What beautiful, magical place to visit would highly recommend it.
The tour was a little expensive. However, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and very good.

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.
Blanca was great - her knowledge of history and the structure really made the visit worth every penny!
Well worth a private tour to find out about this stunning palace and gardens. No waiting in line to get tickets etc and would not have learned about the history
The tour was absolutely amazing, our tour guide was extremely well-informed and new the monument like the back of her hand! It was pleasure to listen to her and visit ! Highly recommend.
This was the most incredible way to tour the Alhambra! Our guide was so knowledgeable and vibrant! I would recommend this to everyone!
Excellent tour. Our tour guide Beatriz Arenas Ibarrondo was great. Spoke great English, knew the history was very knowledgeable, very friendly. Highly recommend.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and went at our pace. THANK YOU!!
We had a wonderfully informative and enjoyable tour. Our guide Bea was very well informed/well read, embraces the history and clearly loves the place. Her guiding is more than a job for Bea - this place and its rich history is a passion for her. We wish Bea well for the future.
Private tour of Alhambra was well worth the cost. Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He welcomed all of our questions.
