Granada Essential Must-Do Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Greet your knowledgeable guide at a central Granada location, then embark on your enriching exploration of the city. Weave your way around the ambient historic center, strolling through Bib Rambla Square as you note the cosmopolitan cultural influences manifested in the architecture. 
    Gaze at the buttery sandstone façade of Granada Cathedral as you guide offers insight into the legends that surround it, then venture to the Moorish silk market of Alcaicería to admire its opulent features. Hear about Granada’s power and prosperity under the Nasrid rule and learn about the Islamic and Catholic influences that have shaped the city’s spectacular skyline. 
    Next, ascend a gentle hill and arrive amid the antique charm of Albaicin, an UNESCO-listed enclave considered the historical heart of Granada. Marvel at panoramic vistas of the Darro Valley and absorb the regal majesty of the Alhambra palace complex on the adjacent incline. Navigate the ambient labyrinth of streets replete with cobblestones and flower-filled boxes, then bid farewell to your guide at the Plaza Nueva.

    Learned a lot, saw a lot and loved every second. I wanted to make sure if I got souvenirs, they actually came from Granada-or at least Spain. Our guide was so clear about what to look for and where, what was fable and what was...More

    Walk through the historic centre of Granada and its emblematic neighbourhoods of Albaycín and Sacromonte, it is a journey to the seed of Al Andalus. The beauty of its streets, its houses, its historical monuments.

    Maureen, From the Port of Malaga, it would be close to a 2 hour car/taxi ride to the departure meeting point listed for this tour (based on little traffic). Hope this helps.
