We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Noella. Despite having a large group, she was able to keep us together and answer all of our questions. The palace was quite interesting as were the garden areas. As a side note, make sure you go up to St. Nicholas cathedral on the other side of town. It offers spectacular views of Alhambra.

It was easy to locate the tour group by the entrance to the Alhambra. The tour itself was interesting, and our guide was very knowledgeable.

Having been unable to get tickets from the official website I was pleased to find this tour. Despite being anxious about booking with a company i didn't know, the tour went ahead as organised. The guide conducted the group at a good pace, with commentary in both Spanish and English. The site was very busy even at 9 am but we had plenty of time to take photos and see the whole site. Recommend.

Great tour and informed guide. The Alcazar is not included but you can stay on and do this yourself recommended. Well worth booking as the day I was there there were no tickets available at all and it was not even peak season. Easy walk to get there up the hill from Plaza Nuevo.
