Unfortunately, our pre booked tour was moved from 10am (before the heat and the crowds) to 12 noon. We were notified re this change many weeks before by a WhatsApp message which was very efficient. On the day it was hot and very, very crowded. It was extremely difficult to take photos without random people being in the pictures unless one was photographing the ceilings…
Our enthusiastic guide Laura was very knowledgable and professional. She was also very considerate to people who maybe found the tour/heat tiring as one is 3hours on one’s feet.
It would have been helpful though, to have a little handout with a historic timeline and the names of reigning kings as we were all foreigners and maybe not that familiar with the Spanish history.
Overall we found the tour excellent and would highly recommend.

I had a tour with Frances and my family, i really liked he told me interesting facts and presented the art perfect to understand. He also told us things to do after the tour. All in all it was just perfect (maybe a little hot, but Frances took breaks with us and showed us toilets eg.) He answered all our questions and didnt just talk us through a „normal“ tour.

Edu was funny and extremely informative. Always willing to answer questions or give interesting anecdotes. I would have felt incredibly lost doing this on my own so I highly recommend an organized tour and you can't go wrong with this one!

My wife has been waiting approximately 20 years to see the Alhambra. We arrived at the entrance looking for our tour in a sea of people and multiple tour companies. Contact was made with the guide 5-10 minutes before scheduled entrance. The guide, Dominica spoke poor English and was unable to give directions. We told her where we were located and she yelled our names once in an area of hundreds of people difficult to hear as is. I asked if she could give more specific directions, which she was unable to do. I asked if someone with better English could help. She replied "I don't need to speak English in my own country." I thought this was odd with this being an English speaking tour. Her reply was you are too late and cannot join now. Then she hung up. At no time was I rude or not understanding.

Luckily we were able to get tickets and used audio guides. And honestly we were able to hear multiple live guides around us. In the end we were happy we didn't have to stick with a large crowd. My wife and I had a wonderful time going at our own pace and exploring away from the large groups. Just get tickets, save some money for a good meal and don't stress the need for personal guides. Just plain not worth it.

To make the situation worse the company was unwilling to refund our money and offered a $25 promo for our troubles. This is just another greedy company looking to make a dollar. Hope you enjoy your travels and appreciate the review. Cheers!

Dear Elizabeth Unfortunately this is a rule of the Board of the Alhambra and the Generalife that is totally foreign to us. Both on the website of the board of trustees, on our website and on those of Viator or Tripadvisor, this is noted and the information of name, surname and passport or DNI is requested and we also always write to request it. When the rules imposed by the monument are not followed, this is impossible for us to solve. We are sorry that you could not make the visit Have a nice day.

Our guide Carlos was amazing as we visited on 8th March. Before all the good stuff couple of watch outs:
1) group was 19. It was sold a small group so this was poor.
2)6 people turned up late so we didn’t leave until 2:20 for a 2pm-5pm slot which meant we finished at 5:30 and had no time to wander around ourselves
3) Headsets were adequate only. Lots of static and range problems beyond 5metres. In a large group it was like herding sheep for Carlos
Positives
The Alhambra is an amazing complex. Loads of stunning architecture to see but Carlos added so much more in terms of the historical evolution of the palace and grounds.
Visit for yourselves so as not to spoil the story . Enjoy

I went with a friend and her family to the Alhambra with Nhue concierge. We booked the Alhambra and Generalife premium tour and we had an incredible time. Our guide, Marta, was not only incredibly knowledgeable but she had a way of describing all of the historical events without offending either Christians or Muslims. Her tour felt more like a journey through the ancient city and we were along for the ride. Highly recommend this tour! It is more expensive than others but it is completely worth it! The experience as a whole was seamless and the perfect example of a 5 star experience.

We were a small group - 5 people - and we all learnt so much from our tour guide, Marta, who was not only incredibly knowledgeable, but keen to share it with us. She answered all our questions with patience and, incredibly, interest. I'm so glad I went on this tour - I normally don't...

Small tour of 4 people. 3 hours that flew by as we were entranced by the tour. Our guide, Juan Antonio, conducted our tour in perfect English. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the Alhambra, Granada culture, and had many pearls of knowledge to offer for our trip.
Very good value and highly recommend!

Ana was fantastic! She was very personable and provided clear information throughout the tour. With the small group, we had no problem staying together and the headsets made it easy to hear Ana at all times. The tour was great, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Alhambra.

Our guide Carlo Sereno was absolutely great! He seems to know everything, from history, religion (he even quoted verses from the coran), flora and fauna…. And all this he explained with so much sympathy… perfect! He took his time, never was in a hurry and the tour had been longer than thought upfront. Our group was very happy
