Highlights
  • Pass the often-long lines on a skip-the-line tour of Granada’s Alhambra 
  • Go with a guide to discover easy-to-miss facts and details
  • Tour the full complex: the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife
  • Personal headsets and smaller-than-average group for more engaging tour
  • Wide choice of departure times for great flexibility
  • Opt for early morning or late afternoon slots to avoid the midday heat
What to Expect
Book your selected time slot and travel independently to the Alhambra entrance. Then, meet your guide and head inside, bypassing the ticket lines. Don the provided headphones and after an introduction, set off to explore. Listen as your guide charts the history of the UNESCO-listed complex, whose roots lie in the ninth century before its expansion into a full-blown Moorish palace during the 1400s and 1500s. Hear about the Nasrid royal dynasty as your guide leads you through the Nasrid Palaces, pointing out the architectural finery and rich carvings of the chambers, patios, and corridors. Stroll around the lush Generalife Gardens as you learn about their design and original function, and admire the sandstone Renaissance-era Carlos V Palace. As you explore, feel free to ask any questions you wish, and when the time comes, say goodbye to your guide, bringing your tour to an end.
