Everything was perfect. The guide was waiting for you at the entrance. We had so many negative experiences that he was in a hurry and we couldn't see anything patiently. There was a huge crowd, everyone pushing each other, one group after another. In the end we could go back to the garden and have a quiet look. The palace is beautiful, I think the 8th wonder of the world.

Didn't really love it -, the group was too large, the information was sketchy and there were too many bottle necks with other groups. We felt we'd have been better off with an audio guide going at our own pace. The guide was very sweet but not enough detail and as audio quality was poor that did not help matters.

Parfait, superbe découverte de l'alhambra avec un super guide, Ada. Mille merci à elle pour sa gentillesse et ses explications.

We booked a guided tour of the Alhambra only because we were too late to get ordinary tickets! We felt it was pretty expensive , and were slightly apprehensive about being part of a large group of people for three hours. However, the tour turned out by chance to be just for our family, and was conducted by a most courteous and scholarly gentleman called Eduardo. He is a professor of history, and his knowledge of the palaces is prodigious. He made the experience really memorable and personal, talking to each of us and answering our questions. He was happy for us to have a brief rest halfway through to recharge our batteries, which was much needed, and after the three hour time period booked was over, we were still talking about the surroundings, strolling in the sunshine of the gardens. A truly memorable afternoon of enjoyment for which we are most appreciative.

The guide was very educational, giving lots of explanations and repeating them. She went at the pace of the group, with time for photos and even a break in the middle of the tour. All the monuments are magnificent, as are the gardens.

Explore Alhambra with a guide

Gain entry to the Alhambra, a National and Artistic Monument of Spain, on this guided tour.

Visit other wonders of Alhambra

This ticket grants access to several other attractions within the Alhambra complex. Explore the Palace of Charles V, an architectural marvel blending Plateresque, Gothic, and Spanish styles, renowned for its unique collection of Hispano-Muslim and Nasrid artworks. Discover the Generalife, known as the Architect's Garden, one of the oldest Moorish gardens featuring cool turquoise water, flower beds, and lush greenery. Don't miss the Alcazaba, one of the oldest structures in the Alhambra, serving as both a fortress and a watchtower during the Nasrid rule.

Nasrid Palace and Medina

While many structures within the Nasrid Palaces have succumbed to time, some endure, including the Mexuar, once a prominent part of the palace, and the Court of Lions (Palacio de Los Leones), along with more private areas.

After exploring the Nasrid Palaces, accompany your guide to the Medina, a citadel featuring remnants of ovens, silos, cisterns, public baths, workshops, and residences of government officials, employees, and court servants, accessible via a challenging route.
