Start your half-day tour with easy pickup at your Granada hotel, where you will climb into an air-conditioned minivan. Relax and enjoy the scenery on the way to the Alhambra, perched on a hill overlooking the city.

With your guide in the lead and priority-access ticket in hand, proceed past the crowds and start exploring immediately. See the Nasrid Palace, the Hall of Ambassadors, the Myrtle Courtyard, the Royal Baths, and the Hall of Abencerrajes. Listen to your guide’s detailed commentary about the history and importance of this grand structure, and what life was like here in the 13th century.

Move on to the lush Generalife Gardens for a leisurely stroll, where you’ll encounter blooming flowers, exotic plants, and impressive water features.

End the tour and board the minivan to be whisked back to your hotel for drop-off.

Highlight of our Andalusia Trip

Such a stunningly beautiful experience!!! Go!!!! The Granavision check-in across from the site was super easy. The facility has a little cafe for a quick snack before the tour. You can also purchase water (only beverage allowed on site) there. We were provided with headset...More

Fantastic tour, passionate, enthusiastic guide, worth every penny!

I booked this tour as a solo-traveler. I was hesitant, because it seemed pricey, but it was well worth it. We skipped every line in the entire place, which is massive, and there are lines to access several areas. That perk alone gives you so...More

Yes, exactly as the answers above. You can park the car in car park 2 and then walk down the hill a little and across the road. They have a cafe at the building so you can get a coffee or breakfast if you get there early!
