As you explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s highlights—which include the Generalife Gardens, Nasrid Palaces, and Alcazaba Fortress—listen to in-depth historical commentary from your private guide. A private tour means you receive undivided attention from your guide, while booking ahead guarantees your admission, as numbers of visitors are strictly limited per day.

What to Expect
When booking, opt for hotel pickup or choose to meet your guide at the Alhambra just prior to the morning start time. As the access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors per day, booking this private tour in advance is highly recommended to secure your admission to Granada’s most popular attraction. With your priority access ticket and guide, breeze past the long entrance queues and head straight inside The Alhambra.  Get to know the UNESCO World Heritage Site through informative commentary as you walk. See opulent palaces, lush gardens, and imposing fortresses. Hear tales of politics and royalty from the ninth century, featuring emirs, sultans, and Moorish kings. At the Alcazaba Fortress, ascend the Torre de la Vela, and get some fantastic photo ops of wider Granada sprawled out below you. Other stops on the tour include the Generalife Gardens, the Patio de la Sultana, the Ambassador’s Hall, Nasrid Palaces, and the Patio de las Arrayanes. Since your tour is private, you have the undivided attention of your guide—you can move at your own pace and ask plenty of questions.

Fantastic tour of the Alhambra, I highly recommend. Our tour guide, Sow, was very knowledgeable and passionate in showing us the Alhambra and its history. We wished we could have stayed the whole day! Thank you for a wonderful time.

Alhambra, Generalife and the Nasrid Palaces are an amazing and magical experience in itself, but add to it Sergio, my personal tour guide, from Granavision made it that much more of a memorable visit. Sergio and I met up at a little cafe across from the Alhambra parking lot.
