The ride was long but worth it. Passed by lots of olive tree groves along the way. The tour guide was quite detailed and professional.

wonderful day

You can only get a remote idea of the beauty of the Al Hambra from books. The reality is so much more. You can read about the close interactions among Jews, Muslims and Christians for 700 years in this magical kingdom, but in acually going there you can have a bit of that experience . . . and feel the disappointment when it ended. The road trip through olive groves with a very knowledgeable guide, who directed us to a street tapas place in Granada that turned out to be a highlight of our trip, was a lot if fun.

Another amazing day!

Excellent. We went to all the amazing places we signed in for and more! Big and comfortable coach, stops to rest, very nice staff who provided us with a lot of information and recommendations along with history and/or data of places we were passing through. Guide at the Alhambra was excellent too. ps. I was on a HAL cruise, and purchased tours both through the ship and through Shore and believe me, Shore Exc tours were a lot better in content, price, equipment and, organization.

Wonderful Experience
June 06, 2019
We left our cruise ship and was greeted warmly by our guide. On the ride to Granada he was helpful in pointing out the sites along the way. The real experience began when we met our Alhambra guide, Francis. The tour is breathtaking and Francis was the most informed guide we have ever had. Don't miss the opportunity to visit Alhambra,

Really enjoyed the experience
May 28, 2019
Easy to meet up with our bus and tour guide at the cruise terminal. Very comfortable coach for the approximately 90 minute ride through beautiful hills, farms, and olive groves to Granada. Our guide on the coach was a great source of information along the way. At the Alhambra we met up with guides who accompanied us (small group of 10-15). The Alhambra was stunning and quite large. However, we had plenty of time to tour most of it in the 6 hours we were there. Once we returned to the port, the guide gave us the option of doing a short tour of the city with her or to return directly to the ship.

Welll Managed Tour

The Cruise Line had a similar tour, but it was sold out. We booked through Shore Excursions for a lower price and was happy. We met the tour operator right off the ship and boarded a large bus for the 1+ hour ride. When we arrived at the site, the Tour Line had 3 local guides (for groups of 12) waiting with personal pre-purchased tickets and radios for us. It took about 3 hours for the tour. Recommend it highly.

Excellent guided tour of the Gardens and Alhambra. The guide we had was excellent. The visit to Granada was short but due to the time of departure of the ship.

A must see...fabulous tour
July 02, 2018
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. It was definitely worth the drive through the beautiful countryside. Our guide on the bus was Rafael...a passionate "historian" who is an archaeologist. I commented that he should be a professor and he said he actually taught at Stanford and one more place. I almost wish I had taken notes! We all learned so much! Our tour guide at the Alhambra was equally magnificent. She made this area come could close your eyes and imagine yourself in those times. On the way back, we stopped to walk around the Ramblas of Granada. It is a beautiful, clean vibrant area. We had lunch at one of the many restaurants. So often I hear folks taking the same cruises and going back to the same places and wonder why they would do that. I hope to return to Granada/Malaga and definitely to Alhambra..

The Alhambra is not to be missed!
July 02, 2018
Did this tour from beautiful port city of Malaga. Had read "Tales of The Alhambra" by Washington Irving so The Alhambra was on our bucket list. It did not disappoint. Informative guide on coach, we divided into 3 smaller groups for The Alhambra tour. A great guide, he arranged taxis for seniors with ltd. mobility twice. Amazing site, beautiful buildings, gardens, & tons of history. The Alhambra is not to be missed! Comfort stop enroute, meal stop in Granada before returning to port. Tour was very good value for the money.

Malaga Shore Excursion
June 25, 2018
We greatly enjoyed this tour. the Alhambra is very interesting and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. The city of Granada is likewise beautiful. The guide on the bus ride was very good. However, we were not happy with the guide taking us through the Alhambra. His accent was very thick and he spoke VERY QUICKLY and in short, clipped sentences. We really didn't understand most of what he said.

Timely pick up, clean modern bus, excellent tour guides....the woman on the bus was so knowledgeable and incredibly personable. Our guide at the Alhambra was even more personable. He spoke clearly and we were given headset units so we could hear...even if we wandered a bit. This was almost half the cost of the cruise sponsored tour and it was PERFECT!

Personable and knowledgeable Tour Guides
October 16, 2017
Booked this excursion because my cruise line was unable to accommodate us. One of the best excursions ever. Our guide not only was very informative about the area but he was also very funny. Once we reached the Alhambra we were picked up by a local guide. Each person was given a listening device that worked very well. We could always hear her. She also was very knowledgeable. It was a great value thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

We had an excellent time visiting Alhambra and a winery in Grenada. The tour was well guided, paced, on time, and highly enjoyable. It also offered an excellent opportunity to see the countryside and area away from the port city of Malaga.
