Magnificent

The palace interior is magnificent with rich details on walls and roofs I visited many places around the world but this kind of archicture is unique you can't find it elsewhere.
Beautiful Palace a must see
muhammadim78, 20-10-2019
Great city visit. Don’t be mistaken that it’s only a palace. It’s actually a mini city. You need at least 4 hours to see the complex properly with Charles V castle and Alhambra museum visit in the end. A must see but a word of caution is to book the tickets way in advance as it is usually pre booked. And you don’t want to come all the way to Granada and mis this. One of the most well preserved sites of Muslim rule of Spain.
Most incredible tour by incredible guide and service

I dont write reviews, ever, but really wanted to write a note of commendation for this Nhue guide service on Viator. The Alhambra speaks for itself, but more importantly, this is the guide service to use. I actually tried booking through a different, cheaper service first, but they did not follow up to phone calls or emails before my trip, which made me nervous.

So I switched to this service, even though it was more expensive, and it was WORTH IT. Nhue guide service emailed me multiple times and called with WhatsApp to provide very specific instructions where to meet, what time. Our guide was AMAZING. Highly informed and educated, took a lot of time with us, no rush, lots of photos. Also shared with us things about daily life in Spain, personal stories, and a real view not just into history but modern times as well.

It may seem expensive, but the Alhambra is difficult to get tickets and a book or audioguide does not do it justice, and a large group tour is no fun. If you invest in one special thing for your trip to Spain, get this private guide service for your trip to Granada.
Fantastic tour!

Really enjoyed this tour with our guide Edu, who was very knowledgeable and gave great insight to all we saw. We only had one day in Granada, so went with this tour to make the most of it. In addition to teaching about the sites, the history, and the culture, Edu added in some interesting facts tying in what we were seeing with how those things influenced language. Obviously as compared to some of the group tours we’ve done on this trip, the private tour is so much more engaging and you get way more out of it. Highly recommended!
Marta truly the best

Marta led us in an informative, fun and enchanting tour of the Alhambra in the morning, then the ancient Albaicin neighborhood in the afternoon. She wove together historical, religious and cultural insights, and sprinkled in ample doses of humor and mystery that left us spellbound. We recommend that you ask specifically for Marta.
