Great experience
My husband and I took this tour on a chilly day in January. My advice is to locate the bus stop the day before if possible. Sevilla is tricky and at that hour we were pretty groggy. Leaving from Sevilla around 6:30 a.m., we stopped midway at a comfortable, clean bus stop for breakfast and break. Our onboard guide, Roman, was excellent. He was respectful of our sleepy heads on the first half and then provided interesting commentary as we made our way to Granada. Arriving at the Alhambra we were met by our onsite guide, Tarek (?). We were given earbuds. (I have hearing devices and they easily accommodated me) The tour was excellent. Tarek was informative and friendly. He had a challenge to keep our group together as people kept stopping and/or wandering off. He spoke softly through a body microphone, entirely suitable. The tour was 3 hours with a break. You walk about 4 miles. My only suggestion was to schedule a quick break before beginning the tour.
Following the Alhambra visit, we bussed to the Albacin district where we had lunch on our own. I recommend the restaurant where the group breaks up. It is wonderful. We didn't want to use our free time looking for a place to eat and were famished. From others in our group we learned we had made the right choice. After lunch we wandered around and met up at a plaza that provides great views of the Alhambra and surrounding mountains. We loaded up and returned to Sevilla, stopping again midpoint for a coffee and break. Everything was well planned and comfortable. Our guide, Roman, was very interesting and informative. He gave great information about the agriculture, history and fun facts of the sights we were seeing from the bus. My advice is to always try to sit up front and across from the guide on tours of this sort. You can ask questions and enrich your experience.
All in all a 5-star tour!

Fantatstic Day Trip
Oct 2017 • Solo
I'd always wanted to visit the Alhambra and was pleasantly surprised when I found a day trip from Seville on Viator using Andalsur. Any way it is a bit of an early start and a drive but we stopped for coffee/snacks on the way there and on the way back which broke the journey nicely.

I have to say my day ran like clockwork from the 05:50hrs pick at the Hilton (I was first) to been dropped off around 19:45hrs in the evening.

I have to complement our Andalsur guide Petra for communicating regularly and for been so positive and happy, which made for a happy coach and an enjoyable trip.

Upon arrival we skipped the line but our official Alhambra guide didn’t initially pick us up but had to come came back for us after realising his error! I'd be fibbing if I didn’t say the audio and guide pickup area is a bit chaotic but it was the same for all groups.

The 3hr tour was also done at a brisk pace (with a short refreshment break half way through) but professionally; to really see everything you need more that the allotted 3 hrs but you get all the main bits and it is amazing.

If you have the cash and would like to go back then they have a Paridor in the grounds, so I imagine that would be the way to get a full immersion at a leisurely pace.

Thanks again to Petra and thanks to all fellow coaches for been so friendly.

Overpriced, poorly organised, erratic time keeping
Sep 2017 • Family
My wife & I took our daughter to Seville to celebrate a special birthday, the highlight of which, was to visit Alhambra. Although told we would be collected from our hotel at 6:00am, a call to the company office advised that we would depart from city centre at 6:45. Our guide arrived at 7:00 am and took us for a 1.5 -2 km walk to board our coach. Spent 1 hour traversing Seville to collect other guests from hotels. We finally arrived at Al Ahambra and informed we needed to leave the coach for 2 hours whilst coach completed a separate tour. We were not told this when we booked the excursion Coach was late collecting us to take us to Al Ahambra, where we arrived late. Very rushed tour around site. Local guide informed us that she needed to reduce her tour from 3 hours to just 2 hours because of this. Coach late for return journey and then another hour around Seville dropping off guests. We left the coach prior to our stop and walked to save time. 14 hours excursion, just 2 hours on site. Visited company office the following day to complain. Staff advised us to contact head office , they provided a false email address. After researching company an email has now been sent to explain our disappointment. Still awaiting a response! Cost over 400 euros for 3 people. Could have done this by taxi for less than half the cost and had more time at the location.

Dear traveller! Thanks a lot for your detailed 2 reviews and your copy and paste in order to damage our company. At your voucher stays 6:00 am but stays too that you have to confirm it the day before (however we advise always our guests the day before about the pick up time and location). We can't set the time too long in advance because the time depends on the time of the tickets for the Alhambra, sometimes the guests are picked up at 6.00 am and sometimes at 7.00 am. "Our guide arrived at 7:00 am and took us for a 1.5 -2 km walk to board our coach" That's completely false because our coach is 600 m far from our office, you can check it in Google Maps. The buses are not allowed to drive into the city centre (where our office is), so this is the closest point where the bus can collect the guests, we are very sorry for this long 6 minutes walk you had to do. "Spent 1 hour traversing Seville to collect other guests from hotels" This depends on how big is the group, if the group is big and we have several stops with a big bus and the traffic in Seville we need almost one hour to pick up everyone, we can't do magic. "We finally arrived at Al Ahambra and informed we needed to leave the coach for 2 hours whilst coach completed a separate tour. We were not told this when we booked the excursion Coach was late collecting us to take us to Al Ahambra, where we arrived late" I think you mean you arrived to Granada not Alhambra and the group is divided in to parts there in order to have some free time, something to eat and visit the city not only the Alhambra, you have the option of doing a walking tour or stay at the city centre (we make this in order you to visit not only the Alhambra but the city too), I don't see the point of your critic here and you couldn't arrive late and get into the Alhambra because if you've arrived late it is not possible to get into the monument. "Very rushed tour around site" La Alhambra receives more than 3 million tourists each year of course it is rushed inside, everyone wants to visit this amazing monument :). "14 hours excursion, just 2 hours on site" The distance between Sevilla and Granada is 3 hours of bus, plus pick up/drop off, plus the 2 stops during the journey, it is around 8 hours, in Granada you didn't spend 2 but 6 hours. "Visited company office the following day to complain. Staff advised us to contact head office , they provided a false email address" We remember perfect that we attended you at the office and we didn't give you a false email adress...with so much lies it's very difficult to handle. "Could have done this by taxi for less than half the cost and had more time at the location." I would recommend you to take this option always if you don't want to follow a programme and you don't want to wait pick up/drop off of other guests but I assure you a taxi would not have been the half of the cost, plus the Alhambra tickets and a local tour guide. We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy your day with us but we can't accept all these lies, please next time you make a review try to be a little bit more honest. Best regards, Andalsur Team
