    What to Expect
    Disembark your cruise ship at Malaga port then climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan to begin the scenic 2-hour journey to Granada. Ascend the incline of Sabikah Hill to reach the vertiginous perch of the palace, and admire the rose-tinted walls before venturing within. 

    Glide past long lines with your priority access pass, and follow your guide on an enriching journey through lavish palatial suites and courtyards replete with elaborate arches and verdant gardens. Learn about the origin of the former 9th-century fortress, and see the architectural tableau of Islamic and Renaissance styles. 

    Marvel at the extravagant beauty of the Nasrid palaces, note the stylistic contrast of the Palace of Charles V, and awaken your senses to the smells and sights of the Generalife Gardens as you wander amid exotic flowers and distinctive water features. 

    Time permitting, venture to the historical heart of Granada for a walking tour. Enjoy some relaxed free time to explore independently, choosing to sample local specialties in a restaurant or peruse shops for special souvenirs (own expense).

    At a time prearranged with your guide, return to the minivan and arrive in Malaga well in advance of your cruise ship’s departure.

    Thank you for highly recommending us. We appreciate you saying that the tour was excellent. Thank you for mentioning that we picked you up at the port. We always pick up our clients directly, if possible, in order to make their visit as hassle-free as possible. Thank you for also mentioning that the tour cost was less than half what the cruise line charged for a big bus tour. We hope to see you again! MalagaDayTours

    Thank you for saying that the tour was organized and on time, with a very knowledgeable guide. We’re happy to hear that you enjoyed the small group tour. We like to keep our tours as small group excursions, which make the visit more personal. We believe this allows our guests to have a better experience than that of the big bus tours. We look forward to your next visit! MalagaDayTours
