We booked the 3 hour private guided tour for two couples traveling together because general admission tickets were booked out well in advance of our visit. We are thrilled that it turned out this way. The guided tour was so much more informative than doing it on our own, even with an audio guide.

Our guide Igone was fabulous. Her English was exemplary and she was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient with our many questions (which she was able to answer by the way).

The Alhambra itself is a spectacular monument and such a large part of Spanish history, being the last stand of the Moors. It is a highly recommended visit. The architecture, history, views and wonderful gardens make for a very enjoyable visit. We learned so much.

I have to mention our guide once more for her helpfulness in recommending a restaurant in the vicinity (not on the grounds, but somewhere not touristy). She said it was a family favourite with good, real, Spanish cuisine. It did not disappoint. And the views were spectacular. It was warm enough to sit on the terrace and we had stunning views of the town below and the snow capped Sierra Nevadas in the backround. Thank you Igone.

The private tour is not inexpensive but worth every penny!

We had a private tour by Edu of Alhambra palace. We were a party of 5 with varying levels of knowledge about Alhambra and its history. Edu made the site come alive as he told us the history and the purpose behind the construction and architecture of the palace. Rather than spill out a bunch of facts, he created the story of living there as a Sultan as we walked from the outer parts of the palace to the inner courtyards. He captured everyone’s attention and made it a truly memorable tour. I felt sorry for the other people visiting the palace because all of the details that Edu shared with us gave us such a rich appreciation for an incredibly beautiful place. Nhue Concierge was also fantastic to deal with as we needed to add people after our initial booking. It was also great that they included our tickets...navigating the Alhambra site can be challenging.

Nono was a FANTASTIC tour guide. He was so kind and funny and had so much knowledge about the place. It was very easy to find him and he brought visual aids and maps to help us understand the history of Alhambra. We are history buffs and he was the best guide for that! He had so many interesting details and info that made the historical monument absolutely come to life. I cannot recommend him and this agency enough!!!! 10/10!!!

I booked a walking tour costing £236 with this firm in early June. Due to the pandemic and the inability to travel to Spain from the UK I cancelled the tour. They have refused to refund the money even though they will not be providing the service and they have 2 months, so would not incur any costs. Very bad service, avoid.

Good morning, As we already mentioned, to this day, the Alhambra and Generalife trustees have indicated that they will not refund any reservation from May 1 onwards. We also inform you that we are negotiating and lobbying for this situation to change and reimburse us both sides, but this is not the case yet. Currently the cancellation conditions that were known when making the purchase apply, and which are not random, are precisely for this reason. We inform you that when the time comes and it will surely come, the Alhambra will yield, because it will surely not be open, and it will return the money and you are sure that it will be reimbursed. Please be patient and check that for the first or second week of May, this will surely be reversed. The Viator company will inform you of this, with whom you bought and paid for the tour, if the case will come. By then your little solid comment will already be included here, despite the fact that your money will probably have been returned. Have a nice day and take care of yourself. Juan Antonio Salcedo

This was a great tour of the Alhambra. Our guide (Nacho) did a fantastic job explaining the history, architecture, and many other interesting details of the Alhambra that we would not have learned without him. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and also great with kids. I highly recommend this tour!

Our tour and tour guide, Maryla, were fantastic. Very well organised tour and got us to see all the sights completely, easily and on time without long waits. Maryla is a multilingual talent originally from Granada with a deep knowledge of the architecture, landscaping and history of the Alhambra and Generalife site, as well as Granada and the region. She brought it all to life and was very pleasant and helpful, and even helped us find our way to our next site down in the city after our tour was over. We can highly recommend the private tour and especially the tour guide.

To get most out of a visit to this extraordinary world heritage site, you should have an exceptional guide, and ours — Edu Diaz Prados — is among the best. He is incredibly knowledgeable not only about the complete history of the various palaces but also about the architecture and, in particular, the beautiful gardens. We remember in particular Edu’s evocative description of the way the sultans would have greeted visitors as they entered the palace and how the architectural structure of the rooms created a powerful drama guaranteed to highlight the sultan’s power. The tour was comprehensive and intense, but completely fulfilling.

First: you don’t need a tour guide. They have the headphone for you to listen to the information and history. Huge place. The most beautiful is the first palace. Generalife is modtly gardens and few buildings. If you can’t get a ticket for that part I think you are more than fine. We paid $189 for a private tour because we did not get the ticket on-line earlier. Please make plans one month before and buy your on-ñine ticket for few Euros ($15-20) and save a lot of money.
