Alles verliep lekker soepel, info vooraf was uitstekend. Tour was prima verlopen en het bezoek aan Alhambra was zeker de moeite waard. Gids wist waar ze het over had en kon het goed overbrengen.

Bellissima atmosfera e guida molto preparata. Informazioni che spaziavano su vari campi, molto cortese, l'Ahlambra è unica poco da aggiungere, peccato non essere riusciti a fare la visita ai palazzi Nasridi.. l'osservazione che facciamo è che non ci sembrava così super affollata da lasciare fuori 6/7 persone... Comunque è un posto meraviglioso

The tour and ticketing experience all went smoothly. Unfortunately the weather was terrible. Very heavy rain affected our overall enjoyment of the tour. Did not get to wander in and see the gardens after the tour as the weather was just too bad. We also did not get the opportunity to visit the Nasrid palaces as it was sold out a month before when I booked this tour

Gus, our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the venue, and of historical information of the area. His command of the English language was excellent. Loved the pace of the tour. Highly recommend.

Visit the Alhambra, once the Palatial City and Royal Christian House, and now a National Monument of Spain

Gain fast-track entry to the Alhambra Complex, a National and Artistic Monument of Spain. A fortress that has evolved and grown into a palace, having changed hands from the Romans, the Nasrids, and the Christians, the Alhambra is a standing lesson about the history of Granada and Andalusia in general. Alhambra's architecture is telling of this history. Apart from an English or a Spanish, French, German, an Italian tour, you can also opt for a bilingual tour with a guide who speaks fluent English and Spanish.

Learn about the different architectural styles that make up the different parts of the Alhambra Complex

Walk through the passages and admire the different styles of architecture that were used as the Complex expanded. Your guide will regale you with tales about the Complex's history and provenance as you make your way through. Marvel at the Gate of the Pomegranates and gaze at the Washington Irving Monument. You will also get to visit the Palace of Charles V, built by the Holy Roman Emperor in Alhambra for the poignant significance of being a Muslim fortress that was conquered by his own Christian grandparents. The many pillared palaces is a sight to behold, regardless of its origins.

Visit the Generalife, the luxurious former Summer Palace and country estate of the Nasrid rulers of Granada

The Generalife also known as the Architect's Garden, is easily one of the oldest examples of Moorish gardens. In fact, the entire estate is a series of gardens and fountains with exceptional Islamic motifs and architecture tying it all together. Cool turquoise water, flower beds, and lush greenery make the Generalife a beautiful sight. You will also get to spend some time in the Dehesa of Generalife, a vast green expanse offering incredible scenic views of the surroundings.
