  • 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.

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

The tour was well organized and very interesting. Our tour guide Blanca was very well informed and educative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Would recommend it anyone interested in history. We saw other castles and cathedrals on our known but the Alhambra experience was the best secondary to the guidance and information provided by Blanca. Definitely worth the money.

This was the absolut highlight of our Spain trip. Reservation and bookings with La Vacanza Travel were convenient and efficient. Our private tour guide was Mr. Kastill-Lopez, a most pleasant, knowledgable, charming man who transported us into the times of the moorish civilization. He gave us more than the contracted time, responding generously to all our questions, showing a wide and deep interest in this aera. He knew how to get us away from the crowds and give us an opportunity to have privacy and time for contemplation.On his recommendation we had lunch after the tour at the Parador at the Alhambra and savoured their 'Nasrid' sample menu - what a beautiful complement to the visual and historic impressions. I can highly recommend a tour with La Vacanza Travel and Kastill-Lopez.

Admittedly we splashed to on a private tour because we were disorganised and had missed out on tickets the day we were in Granada but my goodness what a treat it was! Our guide Sergio was impeccable polite, funny, engaging and with a background in history, art history and studying Arabic he took us a journey we did not expect to experience. Sergio brought the Alhambra to life. Easily the best tour we have had anywhere.
