    Traveler Tips

    It is easier to park at Alhambra where parking is plentiful than near the office.
    Word to the wise though, it's a pretty long tour, so wear very comfortable walking shoes!
    Not as scary as it looks but circular stairs are a bit tight.

    Almost perfect.
    Kathleen_M, Jan 2023
    Our tour guide was wonderful. He was very informative and personable. The tour itself was good... but... it didn't include one of the most iconic and beautiful parts of the Alhambra - the Nazarene Palace with the Patio of the Lions. We weren't even told about it. If we hadn't known it existed, we would have missed it.

    Absolutely great experience the tour was very well professionally done the tour guide was fantastic she gave a lot of information
    Great tour for English speakers.
    Stephen_P, Jan 2023
    Nice, well spoken guide. Fairly thorough tour except no visit to the Nazrid palace. But that was not the tour’s fault. Need to make the reservation more in advance than we did.
    Great experience with Marco
    Sheldon_S, Jan 2023
    Marco was wonderful. If you will be communicating with him, please tell him that the American doctor from Boston thanks him again. His tour displayed great knowledge and he was an wonderful man and excellent communicator. I have been to Alhambra multiple times (this trip was for my grandchildren) and this tour was, nevertheless, a highlight of my recent trip to Andalusia. If anyone wants to contact me, my email is
    Awesome informative tour guide

    Virginia was an excellent tour guide. She provided practical useful info and we learned a lot. Tour was well organized and progressed smoothly
    No Nasrid, beware.
    SJ_K, Jan 2023
    The guide was good. His English wasn't easy to understand, but I'd give him a three or four stars. I gave the overall one star because of the way this tour was advertised, with no-cancellation policy. When it says Alhambra + Generalife, one would assume the Alhambra part would include the core experience, of course. Nasrid wasn't, after all, and who would go to Alhambra without expecting to see Nasrid? The "what is not included" list was only printed in the link from the confirmation email. Again, no cancellation, and as a naive tourist I wouldn't have known what Nasrid really was either in advance. I feel scammed after missing what I considered the very highlight of my family's week-long journey into Spain.
    The guide who is also a scholar made the difference.
    Vipin_S, Dec 2022
    The guide, Virginia was amazingly good! Her scholarship and knowledge of the subject enriched the experience! Five stars are because of her.
    Highly recommend.
    Lydia_K, Dec 2022
    We were unable to get tickets to the Alhambra and found this instead, which allowed us to access the Alhambra and experience a wonderful tour. The guide was so knowledgeable and the pace was very good. Highly recommend.
    Great value

    Guide and tour operator...
    Omer_S, Dec 2022
    Guide and tour operator didn’t mention beforehand that strollers aren’t allowed in the palace. Also to be honest a tour to the gardens is enough as the fortress isn’t impressive and the tour is long and not worth the cost
    Great tour
    Swati_S, Dec 2022

    Excellent views and very friendly guide. Would definitely recommend wearing comfortable shoes and planning transportation after the tour finishes
    I reserved and paid online for my ticket and a guide, a day before i was told that my tour was canceled and i was givin
    Nitchime_B, Nov 2022
    The bad customer service I rsv and paid for my entrance with a guide. A day before my tour was cancelled and was giving different options. I had other plans so chose the best that would fit for my stay in Granada. I could not make it on time, because of the change of schedule, i was told i could not get a refund nor can i join the group a little late.
    Impressive place, unsatisfying tour
    Marcellin_K, Nov 2022
    Alhambra was very impressive, Unfortunately bad time management. In the end we couldn’t visit all places as described.
    Our cancelled tour by the operator
    Mohan_I, Nov 2022
    Good tour with a good guide needed some more information and our original tour was cancelled by the operator who set it up at a later time which made us drive late at night

    Great tour!
    Regina_M, Nov 2022
    Virginia was a terrific guide. She offered so much insight to the Alhambra and historical Granada. She truly made this a great tour.
    Exquisite guided tour
    SusanaBorjas, Nov 2022
    Visiting Alhambra is definitely a must in life. We were very lucky to complete this trip driven by Fermin. He guided us through all the buildings, interior yards, and gardens of that beautiful and unique place, enriching the experience with a lot of history, interesting legends, and a bunch of details, with such a passion that made the experience even more delightful and converted 3 hours of the tour in a minutes sensation. Thank you Fermin for revealing to us the magic of the Alhambra
    Invest in a tour guide
    Adam_H, Nov 2022
    The tour guide was very good. He offered a wealth of knowledge and history - and well worth the investment. The average rating I have was down to some of the other guests who took up far too much of the guides time with their lack of preparation and personal issues.
    Misleading information
    jeffrey_l, Nov 2022
    We came on a cruise ship that landed in Malaga which is nearly two hours from Granada . Because of distance tried to cancel but was told no refunds available. Trip recommended by viator consultant prior to trip but they refused to honor their guarantee. Never went
