Full description
In the morning, you'll visit the Alhambra, the most visited monument in Spain and one of the best examples of Islamic art in the world. Millions of visitors admire its palaces, gardens and walls every year. Discover the beauty of this Word Heritage Site on a combination tour. The Nasrid dynasty complex, built on the Sabika Hill, is the most impressive fortified complex of Muslim Spain and its walls still stand as witnesses to the golden age of Granada.  In the afternoon, you'll visit the Albaicín, Granada’s ancient quarter, and certainly at one time the most beautiful. Walk along its narrow, cobbled streets, and admire the flowering balconies and stunning views of the Moorish fortress. Discover mansions built as residences for the Nasrid nobles during the 14th and 15th centuries. You’ll explore both the monumental Alhambra and the secret and charming Albaicín with your expert guide, stopping for a break for lunch in between. Enjoy a full day full of Spanish history and art.

I will remember this experience as the highlight of my stay in Granad!

In all my travels, my trip to Granada was a standout experience. The highlight was most definitely the guided tour of the Alhambra. My guide, Hamdi, was a joy to be with and clearly conveyed his knowledge of the Alhambra to his group of English speakers. His knowledge of the history of the Alhambra was impressive and he took the time to answer any questions that came to him. The day itself was perfect weather, blue skies and warm which only added to the experience. Booking ahead was a wise thing to as there were many, many people there on the day. Hamdi was happy to take photos of you with your camera or phone so I now have happy memories of my day at the Alhambra. I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Granada.

An unforgettable location brilliantly brought to life by our guide

We were not planning on going on a guided tour of the Alhambra, but wanted to buy a general admission ticket. But because we got around to booking late, the only way was to book on this tour. Having been on the tour, I’m delighted we were forced down this route. Our guide, Martha, was fantastic. Not only was she friendly and knowledgeable, she also managed to bring together so many of the aspects of the Alhambra’s story to life with human stories. Her enthusiasm for the history of the area shone through and it was hard not to be swept along. I’d thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who’s prepared to do a bit of walking. The second half of it in the Albaicin was definitely worth while and provided a nice compliment to the morning at the Alhambra. Thank you!

Informative and friendly!

Best part of £70 and am glad to say it was worth every penny! Would actively seek out tours after this experience - I only booked it because the entry only tickets were gone, and am so, so pleased. No comparison with walking around with a book, which is what I would normally do.
