What will you find?

Pickup your handheld GPS audio system in Granada, and then set off independently to visit the World Heritage-listed Alhambra palace complex at night. Stunning in the day time, Alhambra is even more so by night with illuminations lighting up its red-tinged walls to dramatic effect.

After exchanging your voucher at the entrance to Alhambra, pop on your audio headset and let your navigation system guide you around. All monuments of interest inside the palace complex will appear on the device, and as you walk up to each one, the device will update -- giving informative audio commentary about the history of each place.

Learn about the lives of extravagant emirs and sultans who lived in Alhambra from the 10th century onward while seeking out top attractions like the Water Tower and the awe-inspiring Fortress of Alcazaba.

Check out the three Nasrid Palaces – Mexuar, Serello and Harem -- with their delicately designed Moorish architecture and their decadent Islamic artwork. As you wander over to the Palace of Charles V, learn about the famous Spanish Renaissance architect, Pedro Machua, who created the palace in the 1500s.

The Generalife Gardens are closed at night, but there are still several pleasant places inside Alhambra to relax in the evening. Head to the Lindaraja viewpoint to soak up views of Granada under the starry Andalucian sky, or relax at the Court of the Lions.

You can spend as much, or as little, time as you wish exploring Alhambra at your leisure. The complex closes at 11:30pm – just be sure to return your navigation device the following day.

Reviews & Ratings



  1. The palace is stunning and the views across Grenada fabulous. The crowds thin fairly rapidly once inside and Lion Court by moonlight was amazing. Less good - the GPS device only occasionally worked and was frustrating so we gave up. The tour office where I needed to pick up the tickets and device had a different address to the one on the information sheet provided. The tour centre staff lovely once I had found them
  2. The office were closed when we arrived Granada for the night tour but the emergency hotline told us where to collect the tickets from, which was a huge relief. However we did not get the GPS audio guide, just the tickets and the time to enter the palace. The night tour provides a different insights to the Palace compared to the day because it was built at night. If you have to do it once, I would recommend seeing it at night. It is harder to photo shoot at night but the palace illumination is breathtaking. In the day, you can photo easily but it is crowded with people. Overall, the Alhambra is one ancient megastructure to see if you come to Spain.
  3. Where do I start:- The joining instructions were incorrect. The headsets didn't work. Prior to the tour we were asked to sign a form stating that everything was in working order and also waving any right to complaint, surely illegal? it took longer than the 5 days to answer my original email. Now Viator has referred it back to the tour operator in Granada who will naturally deny any problem. Very POOR customer service from Viator.
  4. Totally Disappointed! We picked up our gps devices and were guided in detail as to how to operate them but unfortunately when we went inside the Nasrid palaces all our 4 devices started giving us errors! We had no guides and were utterly lost!! It was the most disastrous experience!!
  5. Ridiculous collection arrangements, with only limited time slots - in the end, we had to get the tickets from a hotel! Extremely over-priced as well. Will not be using your services again.
