What to expect

Granada’s Alhambra Palace is famous for its unmatched beauty, stunning views and vast gardens replete with fountains and flower arrangements which will take your breath away. On this 3-hour Alhambra tour, step back into Spain and Granada’s Muslim past whilst exploring the palace and its gardens, with skip-the-line entry tickets and alongside an expert professional guide who will ensure that you will be one of the first to enter the grounds.

You will start by exploring the palace and fortress, which in its golden age acted as its own citadel housing the King of Granada and hundreds of family members, guards and servants and was the last bastion of the Moorish peoples in medieval Spain. Explore the glorious grounds, with the inside featuring fine examples of Muslim architecture and decoration still impressive to this day.

Also, you will visit the gardens of El Generalife, this is a villa which acted as the private retreat of the Muslim kings, which has become famous for its ornamental gardens, which combine a distinctive architecture with a range of water features, allotments and plant, and floral arrangements.

Nasrid Palaces Visit (only if you choose this option): Marvel at the magnificent Moorish architecture of the Nasrid Palaces which are full of wonderful plasterworks, colorful ornamentation and gardens full of aromatic flowers and bubbling fountains.
