Description

Get a unique look at two of the most iconic relics of Moorish rule in Granada on this insightful tour through the city's remarkable history. A visit to the grand palaces of the Alhambra and Generalife lets you relive the glory of the Nasrid dynasty as you explore some of its most incredible structures.

Your guide leads you out to the palatial complex of the Alhambra, which grew from a small 9th-century fortress into one of the grandest redoubts in the country. Learn about its rise to prominence during the reign of the last Muslim rulers in Spain, and see the beautifully arranged gardens in the nearby summer palace of Generalife.

The visit gives you an up-close look at the unique architectural styles on display throughout the palace, like the intricate patterning on the walls, the elegant Gate of Pomegranates, the Pillar of Charles V, and the Dehesa of Generalife. Get plenty of time to admire the scenery, and pick up some insight from your knowledgeable guide, before you return to the city.

Natasha was very knowledgeable and friendly but she spoke too fast at times. She also did not seem to realize that she was walking too quickly. There were only three of us on the tour so she could have asked if we needed a short break during the three hours of constant walking. We only had one 15-minute stop. I learned a lot and now appreciate fully the size and age of the Alhambra complex. I left satisfied with my tour overall.
