What You Can Expect

Visit the Alhambra – Granada’s most famous monument – with your friendly private guide. Skip past the long entrance lines with your priority access ticket and head straight inside to start your tour.

The UNESCO-listed palace complex is thought to have originated as a fortress in the 9th century, and then expanded with opulent palaces, vast courtyards and lavish gardens added during the following centuries. Learn all the Alhambra’s intriguing history from your guide while exploring its delights, hearing tales and trivia about the Moorish Kings and sultans who once called the place their home.

Visit Alcazaba Fortress (the complex’s oldest part) and see Torre de la Vela – the tower that is most associated with Alhambra. Views from here are spectacular and on clear days you can easily pick out parts of Granada like Mirador de San Nicolas.

Walk through the Alhambra’s most important halls and courtyards including the Nasrid Palaces, Myrtle Courtyard (Patio de los Arrayanes), and the Ambassador’s Hall (Salon de Embajadores). Admire the contrasting Renaissance architecture of the Palace of Charles V with the rest of Alhambra’s rich Moorish architecture and décor, and take a peek at the Royal Baths.

Before your tour ends, your private guide will show you around Generalife Gardens, where the Spanish rulers of bygone days went to relax. Stroll through two of its beautiful courtyards – Patio de la Acequia and Patio de la Sultana – and admire the decadent flower beds and colorful plants that comprise these spectacular gardens. At the end of your tour, your private guide will drop you back at the original departure point.

Advance bookings are strongly recommended, as access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors each day.

Fantastic tour of the Alhambra and Generalife gardens. Our guide was Guillermo Lopez and he was an interesting and knowledgeable guide, making the whole place come alive for our group of two adults and an 11year old.

We had an excellent tour through La Vacanza Travel. It would be virtually impossible for us to have gotten the same information on our own. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, and his command of English was excellent. I will highly recommend to others.

Very informative. Our great guide Melanie explained the history of Spain and the Alhambra very well, which made the experience so much more meaningful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and came out of our half-day tour richer and more appreciative of the Alhambra, it's history and its beauty.
