      Good BUT we didn’t get to see everything!

      Part of this is my fault for waiting until the last minute to get tickets to the Alhambra and I also ASSUMED that everything in the Alhambra was included in the tour and access. The best thing is buy from the actual Alhambra website. It is only 17 Euros and it includes everything and you can come and go as many times as you would like. As far as the tour guide though, she was really nice and helpful, knowledgeable.

      Well worth a visit

      Thank you to our guide for managing a large group of us as we walked through the Alhambra. It’s a big area and very busy but we learned a great deal about the history of the complex. It was my third time and I gained more from this guided tour than previous independent visits... well worth having a guide!

      Nicely guided tour

      Nicely guided tour in spanish/english for a group consisting from 6 persons only, 2 spanish, 2 swiss and 2 finns. In the beginning we had some problems to find meeting place and the parking place, maybe better information in this could help. This was however also partially our own fault.
