Private Tour to Granada with local guide

Let me, as an experienced and licensed guide of Andalusia, show you around the most beautiful place in Andalusia: The Alhambra & Gardens Generalife.
This moorish palace is considered the eighth 'Wonder' of the world. And with all the merits! You will be immersed in the most private palace of Boabdil (the last Sultan). . .

Important notice: Alhambra tickets are difficult to get and have to be purchased at least 3 months in advanced!!! Sometimes I can get them for you for an extra cost if they aren't available over the website.

But we have also enough time to visit Granada's historical town, which consists of the old Silk Market, Royal Chapel. . .

And not to forget the old arabic quarter Albaicyn, from where we have the most breathtaking view of the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada mountains.

***Customise your tour - I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you are more than 7 people and need a larger vehicle.


- Meeting at the lobby at 8:00AM. Drive over the highway to Granada (about 2hours), seeing the spectacular landscapes in Andalusia, full of legendary olive trees, almonds etc. .

- Visit the Alhambra Palace and the gardens of Generalife (about 2, 5 hours).
- Visit of the old historical quarter of Granada with the Royal Chapel and time for lunch (I can organize a tasty lunch ).

- After lunch we drive up to the old arabic quarter 'Albaicín', and there we have the breathtaking view of the Sierra Nevada mountain and the Alhambra from the 'San Nicolás' plaza.

Granada is one of my favourite cities. It's a romantic city, it has been resting on the foot of the precious Sierra Nevada mountain for thousands of years, witnessing its foundations, living many battles, contributing with the building of the Alhambra etc.

Back at about 6:00PM

Note: I am flexible and we can shorten and adapt timing if it's a SHORE EXCURSION.
