What will you find?

Leave your Granada hotel by air-conditioned coach and head to the city’s most famous monument – the Alhambra – for your 2.5-hour tour. The distinctive rose-hued palace complex dominates Granada, overlooking the sprawling city from its vantage point high up on La Sabica hill. Constructed in the 13th century during the Nasrid dynasty’s reign, the site began its life as a fortress, with further palatial buildings, courtyards and lavish gardens added by successive rulers.

Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Alhambra is a fascinating place to explore with endless architectural wonders waiting to be found ‘round every corner. After skipping the long entrance lines, take a walking tour with your guide, admiring the Moorish architecture of Alcazaba Fortress and the three Nasrid Palaces – Mexuar, Serello and Harem. Head inside and marvel at the intricate Islamic artwork before visiting the Palace of Charles V, designed by the legendary Spanish architect Pedro Machua.

Visit Alhambra’s Generalife Gardens and envisage the Moorish kings of bygone times relaxing amid elaborate fountains and colorful flowerbeds. Roughly translated as ‘gardens of paradise,’ the beautiful space is perfect for a leisurely stroll, and you’ll do just that with your guide.

After your morning tour of Alhambra, your guide will drop you off in central Granada or at your hotel, so you can enjoy a few hours at leisure for lunch (own expense). At the pre-arranged time, make your own way to Granada’s Arab Baths -- Hammam Al Andalus -- for a blissful soak. Spend your afternoon relaxing in the bath’s seven different pools, all beautifully decorated with glistening tiles. Water temperature varies in each, so you can wallow in the warm pools and then wake yourself up with an icy dip. For an afternoon of ultimate indulgence, upgrade to include a traditional Arabian massage with natural aromatherapy oils.

  1. The entire experience was great!! We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the Alhambra, where we were separated into groups based on the language of our tour. Our guide spoke perfect English, knew his stuff and was funny as well. The Alhambra is a very large complex of buildings and going with a guide is a good idea and a timeasver. I think that if I went on my own I either would have missed sites and information, or it would have taken forever reading through a guidebook as I walked. As it was, the tour lasted over three hours....so there is much to see. My travel companion (my fifteen year old son) also loved this tour. No one visiting southern Spain should miss going to the Alhambra......it is an architectural and historical gem that leaves a memorable impression. The add on of the hammam was worth the money, even if you only have an hour or so before they ask you to leave. After the three or four miles you walk on the Alhambra tour, your body welcomes the pampering and relaxation of of the hammam. Pools of water, a steam room, soft music, candlelight, the sound of water cascading into the pools all put you in a good mood. Plus, you'll need a shower anyway after touring the Alhambra in ninety degree weather! In all I'd recommend the tour to anyone who will be in Granada!
  2. This tour was fabulous!!! I enjoyed every moment of it.
  3. The tour was fantastic..I really enjoyed it and the tour guide was passionate and explained every part of the tour with much detail and compassion. Will recommend anytime. Not sure about the massage seemed less than what I expected.
  4. Alberto was a great guide. He was very informative. I felt we had the best tour of any of the other guides that I witnessed. After we left Alberto we were on our wn to find the Hammam. The check in was very disorganized. If you didn't speak Spanish you would not know what to do. Get to the Hamman early as people were lined up out the door when we arrived 20 minutes before our reservation time. Don't assume your Hamman visit is directly after the Alhambra tour. Ask what time they made your reservation. Our reservation was not until 6pm. After understanding what to do we had a great time.
  5. I absolutely loved the Alhambra! It is well worth going on a guided visit as there is so much to see that we would have defintely got lost and missed part of it. Also a big plus was that we didn´t have to queue for the tickets, and some people inside the Alhambra told us they had been queueing for over a couple of hours. We also heard that in high season you may not even be able to get a ticket even after queueing, so we were very glad we booked online beforehand! As for the hamam, we really enjoyed the experience. It was great relaxing in the hamam after the morning in the Alhambra, which we loved but we were pretty tired after it. The atmosphere at the hamam was really nice and inspiring, and it was really clean. Also the massage was very plessant. I had been to a really nice hamam in Istanbul two months ago, which was very famous, but I preferred this one much better! Definitely recommend it!
