What You Can Expect

Granada Walking Tour with Alhambra Gardens from Malaga

Granada Day Trip from Malaga, including the Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens

Choose your preferred tour option when you book. Then, leave central Malaga by comfortable, air-conditioned coach and journey to Granada.

Drink in the rugged Andalucian landscapes, and as you approach, enjoy glimpses of the Alhambra, perched on a hill between Granada and the Sierra Nevada mountains. Built by Spain’s ruling Moors more than 600 years ago, this gorgeous palace-fortress is regarded as one of the world’s finest examples of Islamic architecture and was used as a courtly city and residence.

On arrival, enjoy a guided tour of the Alhambra’s main components, including the Charles V Palace and the neighboring Generalife Gardens. See the Court of Lions and Hall of the Ambassadors, and stroll around the courtyards, fountains, and pavilions as your guide shares facts about their history and design.

Then, wander around the patios and fountains of the Generalife, and see the stunning garden views over Granada and its whitewashed old Moorish quarter of Albaycin.

Next, drive to the center of Granada for a walking tour of the city center. Explore the surroundings of the Royal Chapel, the Alcaiceria, Corral del Carbon, Cathedral, and more, with free time for lunch (own expense). Afterward, relax on the coach ride back to Malaga, where your tour ends at the start point.

The tour was fantastic from the start to finish. The guide was very smart and friendly and answered all questions throughout the tour. The lunch was great as well, and there was time to visit the souk markets for shopping before visiting the palace. I would recommend this tour, well worth it.

It was a great experience for us. The tour was really good with very good guide Graciella, hope I have pronounced her name right. The palace itself is beautiful. The history is so interesting and Graciella was very eloquent in explaining it to us. We have enjoyed the tour. I would recommend it. We just wished we had more time to spend in the gardens. The lunch was good, our tour guide Anabella took some trouble to arrange vegetarian food for me. All in all, we had a great day!
