Full description
Journey back to the days of the Moors in Spain on a guided tour of the Alhambra. Enter the vast complex and hear about its great influence and importance in the history of Spain. Learn about the architectural styles that were used, with Christianity and Islam both having an influence. Marvel at the beautiful Gate of Pomegranates, then walk past the Pillar of Charles V fountain, erected in 1554 along the route that leads to the main entrance of the Alhambra. Explore the Alcazaba fortress, formerly a military precinct and the oldest area of the Alhambra complex. You will also visit the Nasrid Palaces including the Palace of Mexuar, the Palace of Comares, and the Court of the Lions. Finally head to the Generalife, the summer palace of the Nasrid Emirs, home to one of the oldest surviving gardens of the Moors.

      Laura was a great guide!! Extremely clear, helpful and knowledgeable! Our group was even overtime and she did not rush through the last part. I rarely do guided tours but this time I decided to do the full thing (Alhambra complex, Generalife etc. 3-hour tour) and it was definitely worth the money and time. I highly recommend it!

      It was raining all through out the day during our visit. Fortunately, our guide was very knowledgable and understanding that he started the visit an area accordingly. He explained the history of the place as we moved around along with the details of the place and the reasons behind it. We are glad we took the guide eventhough the weather was not perfect.

      Vanessa, was an amazing guide. Very knowledgable, patient with a large group, and spoke perfect English. She made this one of a kind tour even more delightful. We were hesitant to book this tour in lieu of a headset personal tour through the Alhambra as it was much more expensive but it was definitely worth it. We would highly recommend.
