Fascinating tour by Alberto
Alberto was such a passionate tour guide. He is obviously fascinated with the Alhambra and the people who lived there over the centuries and we loved what he shared with us. I appreciated the fact that he went at a perfect pace. We never felt rushed. He took pictures of our group for us, too. If you book a private tour ask for Alberto!

Fantastic tour of the Alhambra, I highly recommend. Our tour guide, Sow, was very knowledgeable and passionate in showing us the Alhambra and its history. We wished we could have stayed the whole day! Thank you for a wonderful time.

Sergio!!
Alhambra, Generalife and the Nasrid Palaces are an amazing and magical experience in itself, but add to it Sergio, my personal tour guide, from Granavision made it that much more of a memorable visit. Sergio and I met up at a little cafe across from the Alhambra parking lot. There he had set up my name some water and a little gift before we even started the tour. A nice touch. Sergio was very informative in both the art and history of the gardens and palaces. You can tell he loves what he does and truly and a true historian. His English is prefect. Please ask for him by name - you will not regret it.
I was having some trouble walking on the cobblestones grounds and up and down the steps and Sergio was there the whole time ready to lend me his elbow and hand. It was like walking along with an intellectual friend. He knew the best spots to take pictures and just the perfect time to take a break. At the end of my 3 1/2 hour tour I hardly felt tired. Sergio is a great representative for Granavision. I enjoyed my tour very much thanks to him. He also has some great recommendations for restaurants and other places to visit, which I did and enjoyed also! Mucho Gracias, Sergio, mi amigo, you made my visit very memorable!

Stunning & informative!
William was the perfect guide. Right from the start we were so comfortable and well informed on what to expect. Asked all the questions we wanted and received well informed answers. Our comfort and safety were a high priority; as well William ensured we saw and learnt what was of interest to us. This was an excellent time of year to go as not too hot, crowds were decent and the few times we had to wait for an entrance gate; the wait was minimal due to this tour. We have been on quite a few tours and highly recommend this being one that you take in a small group!

Very average and difficult to communicate with
We booked through Viator, which was a bit
Of a hassle because all they wanted to do was up-sell us with additional tours.

As requested I tried to call 24 hours before to confirm pick-up at our hotel. I asked the concierge to help, and we called. We left a message. Then we called Viator. And they said they would contact them then email me. I waited. All day. And kept trying to contact them. Finally at 4:00 pm they said they would contact me soon. Why couldn’t they have said that earlier, at least acknowledging my call. Then they were late to pick us up. Only 10 minutes late. The three hour drive was really not a tour. The local guide was better, but not really a top guide we have had. We had much better experience in Seville with a Rick Steves recommenced guide. Night and day.

Oct. 2019
Alberto was an excellent guide. we were a party of four very experienced travellers and he pitched his tour just right for us. He also gave general advice re Granada.
The tour was very informative and we were able to ask questions and go into more detail on the areas of most interest.
One of our group is a keen gardener and was impressed by Alberto's knowledge of the gardens which are beatiful.
The highlight of our trip to Spain

Alhambra - wonderful private tour
Met Antonio at a cafe across from the entrance to the Alhambra at 8.45am. Great spot for a quick bite of breakfast / coffee. The number of people per hour is limited by the tickets sold so regardless of time your ticket is for the number of people should be similar. Depending on the time of year the heat will be the issue.

Tour from start to finish was excellent. The Alhambra itself is magnificent - every part of it - you marvel at what the Moors achieved and then appreciate the respect given by the Spanish to preserve this site in all its beauty. And it is beautiful.

Antonio was a wonderful host - proud of his heritage and able to engage with my two teenage daughters as well as me and my wife throughout the 3 hrs. Legends, insight into day to day life, history and some personal perspective made for an interesting time. Highly recommend.

Book a ticket prior to turning up - you will not get one at the gate. Do not forget your passports as these are checked several times over the tour primarily to make sure that who booked the ticket is the one on site.

Most amazing tour guide
Jun. 2019
Im disappointed with myself for not writing this review earlier. I privately toured The Alhambra with my mother this past June. Our tour guides name was Sergio. This review is solely because of him. Our tour experience was like no other thanks to Sergio. The enthusiasm he demonstrated when speaking on the city and its history drew us in word by word. His deep knowledge & the fact that he studies arabic and has great pronunciation of the language itself made for an even better experience. Our tour was spaced out with great timing & we hit almost every important historical site. I strongly recommend asking for Sergio as a tour guide as he is such a wonderful spirit and wish him the very best in his future. Thank you Sergio for making my mothers and I trip memorable.

Toured Alhambra with GranaVision and was excellent throughout.
Aug. 2019
The only way we could get a ticket was to book a tour guide with GranaVision. Our tour guide was Marina and she was amazing and really brought the amazing palace and gardens alive for us. Very knowledgeable but told it through stories and included everyone in a very entertaining tour but not too heavy just right for the 3 hour duration of the tour. A must if you are in the area and well worth paying the extra money for.
