Full Day to Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens Direct from Malaga

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at a centrally located meeting place or wait in your Malaga hotel lobby for a pickup. Then, travel toward Granada with your guide and group. The historic town is a must-visit stop on any Spain vacation, but it’s the Alhambra that’s Granada’s main calling card.

    Set in the hills beneath the sweeping Sierra Nevada mountains, the Moorish palace is home to dazzling displays of Islamic architecture that have earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Discover the palace's standout sights on a tour, then check out the neighboring Charles V Palace and the Generalife Gardens. Have your camera ready to capture the vistas over Granada and Albaicin, the city’s old Muslim quarter.

    Travel into Granada for a meal at your own expense, then make the most of some time at your leisure. After a Granada walking tour, you’ll return to your transport for the journey to Malaga. Your day trip ends back at the starting point.

    Tour was multi lingual. You input which language you prefer. When you arrive at the gates you will be split into groups according to language for the tour and then you all come back together at the end
