What You Can Expect

Granada Day Trip from Seville Including Skip-the-Line Entrance to Alhambra Palace and Optional Albaicin Walking Tour

Typical houses in Granada

Select your tour option when you book. Then, start your experience with a pickup from your central Seville hotel or alternatively, from a meeting point in central Seville.

Settle aboard your air-conditioned coach and admire the rugged Andalucian countryside as you journey to Granada. Along the way, hear an introduction to your destination’s history, and learn how your route is the same as the one taken by the 19th-century American essayist Washington Irving, author of the famous Tales of the Alhambra.

Catch glimpses of the Alhambra Palace on your approach to Granada and, on arrival, enjoy a guided walking tour of this UNESCO-listed gem. Bypass the entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket, and enjoy priority access to its main attractions, including the Alcazaba, Nasrid Palace, Generalife Gardens and Palace of Charles V.

A vision of Moorish architecture and art, this exquisite complex dates back to the 13th century, and was built as a royal city, court and retreat for Spain’s Moorish rulers. Admire the Court of Lions and Hall of the Ambassadors, and stroll around the enchanting courtyards, fountains and pavilions as your guide shares details of their history.

Next, drive to the center of Granada to enjoy lunch (own expense). Then, depending on your chosen tour option, take a guided walk of the UNESCO-protected Albaicin quarter, Granada’s old Moorish district.

Stroll down the narrow streets past whitewashed houses, churches, gardens and flower-filled balconies, and stop to take in the area’s spectacular panoramas over the hilltop Alhambra.

Afterward, hop back in your coach and drive back to Seville where your tour finishes at the start point.

So far this tour has been the highlight of our trip to Spain. Great guide who was very knowledgeable and managed to keep the tour on a very tight schedule and provide lots of information about Spain, Granada and the Alhambra. We also did the Albaicin tour which was also very interesting.

Alhambra was breathtaking. I felt in awe both inside the palace as well as the garden. I rather enjoy our walk around Albaicin. From Albaicin, we could have a great view for Alhambra. When we were having lunch break in Albaicin, a local barber invited me to join him for wine and tapas. He did not speak English. His friend told me that his name was Pepe, a local barber for 70 years. Fernando and Pepe were showing me great hospitality. They treated me wine and tapas. Pepe invited me to see his house. I thought it was odd to visit a stranger's house in Albaicin, but I did! Pepe asked me to send him hard copies of photos as he was an old man with traditional style. So I print out the photos and sent to him. Our local guide in Alhambra was a sophisticated young man who spoke very good English. He explained everything well about history and architect. Alhambra was such a beautiful and mysterious place.

Early morning but very easy to find the meeting area. The tour itself was great and the tour guide was fantastic. The tour covered everything there and had lots of great background information.

La excursión fue estupendamente. El tour por la Alhambra superó mis expectativas, tuvimos un guía estupendo y visitamos todas las partes de complejo. Además nos recogieron y nos dejaron junto a nuestro alojamiento a pesar de no tratarse de un hotel y de no estar cerca del centro. Muy recomendado.

This trip ran smoothly from start to finish! Commentary from our guide on the bus and at the Alhambra site revealed an in-depth knowledge of the history and customs of this region such that interacting with the site became a memorable experience not to be missed!
