Low Price Guarantee
Breeze past long entrance lines on this private skip-the-line tour of The Alhambra in Granada. As you explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s highlights—which include the Generalife Gardens, Nasrid Palaces, and Alcazaba Fortress—listen to in-depth historical commentary from your private guide. A private tour means you'll receive undivided attention from your guide, while booking ahead guarantees your admission, as numbers of visitors are strictly limited per day.
What to Expect
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.

I don’t know. It would likely depend on how far your cruise ship docks from Granada and what transportation is available. We were in Spain for 3 weeks and stayed in Granada the nights before and after the tour.

SOme tour companies are permitted to sell entrance tickets to the Alhambra. Others may be selling you just the cost of the tour. You need to be sure that you are getting both admission to the site AND the cost of the tour... More
