Magnificent architecture, breathtakingly beautiful mountain views and legendary history: immerse yourself in the magic of the Alhambra on this private guided tour, which includes tickets!

Alhambra Private Tour Itinerary

Like many writers, artists and intellectuals over the centuries, you're sure to be captivated by the awe-inspiring architecture and atmosphere of the jewel in the crown of Al-Andalus, the Alhambra. The UNESCO World Heritage Site was the royal palace-fortress of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada and an incredible example of Islamic art.

Following the explanations of your exclusive English-speaking guide, your private tour of the Alhambra will take you deep into the history of Islamic Spain. Discover the charm of the Nasrid Palaces, imagining the Medieval Sultans ruling their Emirate from the elegant chambers and courtyards decorated with exquisitely detailed stucco. You'll visit the three most spectacular palaces: Mexuar, Comares and Palace of the Lions, where you'll see the famous Fuente de los Leones, or Fountain of the Lions, whose history will surprise you.

Your private tour of the Alhambra will also include a visit of the Palace of Charles V, the Medina and the Alcazaba. This fortified military complex contrasts strikingly with the beautiful nature of the Partal Palace and the famous Generalife gardens

The tour will come to an end at the Generalife, where you'll be enchanted by the sweet smell of the flowers, which have inspired the romantic atmosphere of this hilltop palace since the era of Al-Andalus.
