What You Can Expect

Granada Day Trip including Alhambra and Generalife Gardens from Seville

Generalife Gardens, Granada

Depart from your centrally located Seville hotel in a luxury, air-conditioned coach and relax during the journey to Granada; get acquainted with the city’s intriguing history as your guide provides interesting commentary and you arrive outside the magnificent Alhambra palace complex. Take a moment to admire the rose-tinted hue of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed monument’s exterior and gaze at the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Head inside and embark on a guided tour of the complex and its richly ornamented chambers; hear tales of extravagant emperors in the Nasrid Palaces; note the contrasting Renaissance style of the Palace of Charles V; and then stroll amid the botanical beauty of the Generalife Gardens, verdant gardens replete with exotic flowers and distinctive water features. 

Suitably impressed, exit the palace and enjoy two hours of leisurely free time in Granada. Revitalize with a typical Spanish lunch (own expense) and then return to your comfortable vehicle for the journey back to Seville. 

Please note: access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors each day. For this reason advance bookings are strongly recommended.

We enjoyed it very much. The bus ride was relaxing and the guide provided a good bit of information as we rode past various areas, though we had some trouble understanding her English due to her strong Spanish accent. At Alhambra, we did not have to wait to get in. Our guide at Alhambra was fantastic and it is a beautiful and interesting place. Great trip.

A well organised tour starting very early in the morning with a hotel pickup and a long drive to Granada. the drive was enjoyable as we saw the lazy town wake up on a chilly winter morning and sights were lovely. the town of Granada is very pretty and we met our English speaking guide there. The group wasn't too small and hence we were given earphones so we could hear Rafa our guide loud and clear. It was an interesting tour. The Castle, gardens and town is beautiful. we were then given time to walk round the town and experience the tapas and other delicacies of the land. Lovely trip!

The Alhambra is a must see on your visit to Spain! Pictures usually do not do it justice. It's one of those things in life that you have to see for yourself and take in all the beauty and history. Our bus tour guide was very informative and helpful. We left out from Seville to Granada and she talked to us about the history of the towns we passed on the way. Once we got to the Alhambra, we had a different tour guide to take us around the palace and grounds. He was very informative and well educated on the history of Alhambra. Before we had our tour of Alhambra we stopped in Granada to have lunch and walk around town. We happened upon an amazing tapas restaurant called El Conde. You have to stop here for lunch if you go on this trip!

Excellent tour. Our guide, Melissa, was delightful: informative, friendly, helpful, she could not have done more to make sure we were happy. The trip to the Cathedral was a highlight, as was the visit to the magnificent Alcazar. I enjoyed the morning part of the tour more than the afternoon, but in part that was because the river cruise was weather dependent and it rained. The visit to the Bullring Museum was quite interesting, but the sights we saw earlier on were of much greater interest to me.

My Granada/Alhambra day trip from Seville was a great day! Everything ran according to the schedule and all the logistics came off without a hitch. Our bus guide, Javier, was a great guy - spoke English, Spanish and French. He provided lots of info about the areas we drove through on the way to Grenada and was very friendly and happy to provide additional perspectives on Spanish life. My guide at the Alhambra, Angel the group was divided into 2 groups for the Alhambra tour, was also great. Super knowledgable and very professional. If you have only one day to visit the Alhambra from Seville and do not have a car, it's almost impossible to do it on your own my usual travel style. Using the tour company provided by Viator was absolutely worth the cost for the logistics we also had time on our own in Grenada before driving to the Alhambra, and having such knowledgable guides. I highly recommend them and would use the company again for other tours in other cities!
