Overview
Save valuable vacation time with skip-the-line entry to the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens in Granada. One of Spain’s must-see attractions, this popular site often has very large crowds. Breeze past the entry lines and tour the sprawling complex in just half a day, and hear commentary about the history of this grand fortress and royal palace.
What to Expect
Start your half-day tour with easy pickup at your Granada hotel, where you will climb into an air-conditioned minivan. Relax and enjoy the scenery on the way to the Alhambra, perched on a hill overlooking the city.

With your guide in the lead and priority-access ticket in hand, proceed past the crowds and start exploring immediately. See the Nasrid Palace, the Hall of Ambassadors, the Myrtle Courtyard, the Royal Baths, and the Hall of Abencerrajes. Listen to your guide’s detailed commentary about the history and importance of this grand structure, and what life was like here in the 13th century.

Move on to the lush Generalife Gardens for a leisurely stroll, where you’ll encounter blooming flowers, exotic plants, and impressive water features.

End the tour and board the minivan to be whisked back to your hotel for drop-off.

Top Notch Tour!

Friendly, well-organised, fairly priced and great fun. Gustavo our guide was full of fascinating information, great humour and was as enthusiastic as you could wish for. Thoroughly recommended as a way to really appreciate The Alhambra and it’s history.

My tour was selected in English but the guide speaks Spanish too. You are required to meet at the main entrance of the Alhambra at the coffe shop . They will explain the exact location prior to the tour.
