    The Alhambra
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    Learn about the history of Granada on this 6-hour guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife summer palace with skip the line ticket. A Specialist and historian guide will lead you around the vast complex, dating back more than 600 years. Marvel at a magnificent mix of Islamic art and culture. On this guided tour you will feel the spirit of the last Muslim bastion in Spain. Yusuf is still here – in spirit. So is his father, Ismail I, and his son, Muhammed V. These three sultans were largely responsible for the Palacio Nazaríes – the 14th-century miracle that shines as the Alhambra’s jewel. To amble through these chambers and corridors is to step into Al-Andalus, to feel the energy of a civilization that held such a significant portion of Europe in its clever grip for eight centuries. Its matters of state still whisper in the Mexuar – a meeting place for ministers, all floral tiles and tapering columns, whose later conversion into a chapel could not conceal its Moorish origins. Its afternoons at play still haunt the Patio de los Leones – an intricate courtyard, the core of royal life under Muhammed V, where fountains splash. And its sophistication still flickers around the Palacio de Comares.  Your tour includes hotel pickup and drop off via private coach from the following cities:  Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, Torremolinos, and Benalmadena.  Then,  you will be driven to Alhambra (about 1hr 30min) then you will visit Alhambra with your official tour guide (about 2hrs and 30min).  See Nasrid Palace where you will enjoy the Mexuar, Comares and Lions courtyard; Alcazaba - the Military Fortification; and Generalife - the recreational Palace and Gardens. Enjoy your free time (60 min) exploring outside or inside Alhambra where you can visit our shops, restaurants, and museums.  Then, back to Malaga (about 1hr 30min) to conclude your tour.

We were met at the cruise terminal by a charming and friendly driver, Pepe, who took us in his super comfy van to Granada, to meet our guide, Mohammed. The site is spectacular and the guide was knowledgeable, fun, pleasant and very fluent in English. All in all an absolutely great tour!

"Charming" is a cliche, but this cliche fits the Alhambra. "Must visit" also is a cliche. And it also fits the Alhambra. Filled with gardens, fountains and Moorish architecture, it's a very secial place. It's also filled with tourists. Lots of them. Not so special. Still, who would begrudge anyone from visiting such a wonderful place. Well, perhaps I would, but I have no power of a king.

We were on a cruise with a stop in Malaga. Though our cruise line (Viking) offered an excursion, we decided to reserve our own private tour for 4. We were so happy to have done this. We were met at the port by an excellent driver (Jose) who drove us in a very comfortable vehicle directly to the Palace, gaining direct access to the entrance level. There we met our guide, Mohammed. He was terrific. At first, he spoke a bit too quickly, but once we achieved the right pace, it was a spectacular tour which lasted just under 3 hours. Mohammed is very knowledgeable and approachable, and we all enjoyed our visit very much. There are many steps involved but the sights and views are worth every one. The palace rooms, tile and calligraphy, gardens, and vistas are incredibly beautiful. Highly recommend this tour. Viatour was professional and responsive at each contact from booking to the end of our day. This tour was worth every penny.
