Overview
Granada’s UNESCO-listed Alhambra attracts long on-the-day ticket lines and requires a guided tour to do it justice. This private tour—which includes your entrance fee—provides skip-the-line access to eliminate waits and a personal guide so you don’t miss a thing about the complex’s history. Explore the Nasrid Palaces, Alcazaba, Generalife, and more; and enjoy in-depth personalized commentary so you leave knowing everything you want.

What to Expect
Confirm your preferred start time and meet your guide in central Granada. Then, skip the Alhambra’s long entrance lines, heading straight inside the UNESCO-listed complex. Admire the 13th-century Alcazaba fortress, as you learn about the Nasrid sultans—Spain’s last Muslim rulers—who reigned from 1230 to 1492. Next, see the ornamental halls and chambers of the Nasrid Palaces and Comares Palace, as you hear about the sultans and their harems, taking in highlights including the Patio of the Lions en route. View the Renaissance-era Palace of Charles V, built when Granada came under Catholic rule, and discover the courtyards and greenery of the Alhambra gardens. Afterward, explore the neighboring Generalife gardens, the patios, pools, and archways of which served as the sultans’ summer retreat. Listen as your guide shares the gardens’ history, and feel free to ask any questions you wish throughout. When the time comes, your tour concludes at the Alhambra.

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

Response from NhueConcierge, Director of Sales at Alhambra and Generalife Private Guided Tour in Granada
Responded Apr 10, 2020
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

To visit the Alhambra is a mix of intriquing history, amazing gardens, architecture and artistry I could have never imagined coming from the 13th century. For the best exposure to the true beauty of what artisans could do with plaster 800 years ago be sure to include the
