Enjoy a scenic motor coach ride to the Alhambra Palaces in Granada to see a maze of magnificent construction. Nearby is the Palace of Charles V. Travelers find this stunning Granada tour ideal.

Once you reach your destination you will be divided into groups of no more than 10 to 18 participants per guide for a more personalized exploration. Originally built in 889, the Alhambra Palace is universally praised as a Moorish architectural masterpiece. Naturally, it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the second most popular attraction in Europe. While it began as a small fortress, in 1333 Yusuf I transformed the structure into a palace, a process which took over 100 years! Your English-speaking guide will escort you to the mighty structure to see its stellar halls, courtyards, and rows of intricately carved arches. On this exciting Granada tour, you'll visit the exquisite Nasrid Palaces, which included private rooms and residences for the king, as well as semi-public state rooms.

Next, you'll visit the Palace of Charles V of England, built within the site of the Alhambra Palace in 1526, largely as a symbol of victory for the Catholics over Muslims. It is lauded as a superb Spanish Renaissance structure, featuring the Torre de la Vela tower, and offering stunning views of Granada.

Thereafter, you will visit the Generalife, a royal place of recreation featuring gardens, waterfalls, and bathing pools. The elaborate facility was built during the reign of Muhammad III in 1309 as a vacation destination.

Time permitting, you will be driven to the Granada city center, where you will receive an orientation tour and have free time to explore on your own. Please be advised that the order of events may change based on the weather or traffic conditions of the day. Reserve this tour for memories that will last a lifetime.

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!

Reviewer: Margaret Smith
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.
