Save valuable vacation time with skip-the-line entry to the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens in Granada. One of Spain’s must-see attractions, this popular site often has very large crowds. Breeze past the entry lines and tour the sprawling complex in just half a day, and hear commentary about the history of this grand fortress and royal palace.
What to Expect
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.

Magical place and excellent tour

I strongly recommend this tour. The Alhambra is one of the most magical places to visit - despite the crowds. The tour was long but our guide (Jenny) was very knowledgeable and her clear explanations made the place come to life.

Wayyyy too fast to my taste

Tour is well organized and tour guide is good. However I found the tour to be way too fast once in the Alhambra and the group to be a little bit too big to have the chance to enjoy it fully. Shame given the place......More

The tour is half a day, morning or afternoon. I think we started at about 9.00 and were done by 1.00. Don’t think they pick up from the port.

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!
