When booking, opt for hotel pickup or choose to meet your guide at the Alhambra just prior to the morning start time. As the access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors per day, booking this private tour in advance is highly recommended to secure your admission to Granada’s most popular attraction.

With your priority access ticket and guide, breeze past the long entrance queues and head straight inside The Alhambra. 

Get to know the UNESCO World Heritage Site through informative commentary as you walk. You’ll see opulent palaces, lush gardens, and imposing fortresses. Hear tales of politics and royalty from the ninth century, featuring emirs, sultans, and Moorish kings.

At the Alcazaba Fortress, ascend the Torre de la Vela, and get some fantastic photo ops of wider Granada sprawled out below you. Other stops on the tour include the Generalife Gardens, the Patio de la Sultana, the Ambassador’s Hall, Nasrid Palaces, and the Patio de las Arrayanes.

Since your tour is private, you’ll have the undivided attention of your guide—you can move at your own pace and ask plenty of questions.
