Description

Ancient fortifications, lavish gardens, and the strong Arab heritage of Granada await you on this full-day tour. Head into the heart of Andalusia, where you admire the impressive Alcazaba fortress and stroll the stunning Alhambra Palace before exploring the charming city centre.

Your tour takes you on a scenic drive along the coast and into the Andalusian countryside. Listen to your guide narrating Granada's history, from its Roman origins to the Moorish invasion that marked the entire city and left a great legacy behind. As you arrive, gaze up at the Alhambra rising above the city.

Prepare to be amazed by the grandiose complex, which was built by the Nasrid dynasty and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The tour conductor did not took into consideration I was walkinh slow because I am recovering from a fracture, with a cane, and I was left behind the group. Had to call the operator and then the tour conductor, who was careless, finally took a taxi.

The trip around the Alhambra was wonderful. We would have liked a little more time to wander the gardens and grounds on our own. The guide was very informative although the reception on the earpieces was a little erratic. We had booked an English tour but 2 german tourists were added to the group so everything had to be said twice which was a bit annoying. The walk around the town was a bit of a waste given that we also needed to find somewhere for lunch before returning to the coach.

Toller Tagesausflug, alles gut organisiert und sehr kompetente Reiseleiterin. Führung durch die Alhambra war auch sehr gut - nicht zu kurz, nicht zu lang und sehr informativ. Absolut empfehlenswert.
