Wander along its ancient walkways and learn about the kings and sultans who once resided there. Then, enjoy a tranquil stroll through the paradisiac Generalife Gardens.

On the long bus ride, we got a lot of information about the area and it’s history. Alhambra was fantastic. Even though it was fairly crowded, we got to spend as much time as we needed. The palace and summer home were beautiful. We liked this much more than Alcazar which was extremely crowded and much the same as Alhambra.

The Alhambra is huge with many rooms full of delicate designs. It is truly a masterpiece. Our guide was excellent. She was articulate, knowledgable and the pace was perfect. This tour is specifically for those arriving by cruise ship to Malaga and includes transportation to Alhambra. Those that booked an "Alhambra" tour through the ship's excursions were disappointed because they did not get to enter the site. On this tour we saw very room and garden within the compound. Book well in advance as tickets are limited.

The Alhambra is so beautiful and our tour guide was wonderful! We took a bus from the cruise port with around 30 people. The tour guide on the bus was very informative and entertaining. We were separated into smaller groups once we arrived at the Alhambra, which was great! We also got to spend time in Granada on our own to shop, have tapas and a drink. The Alhambra is a once in a lifetime experience and worth the visit.

The shore excursion delivered what was promised. The Alhambra palaces and gardens were breathtakingly beautiful. We were blessed with great weather for the visit and never felt rushed. The local guide was good and the pacing of the tour was excellent. The free time in Granada was nice too. We highly recommend this excursion.
