Discover the historical city of Granada, land of the Alhambra and the Generalife gardens on this full-day tour. The Moors built Alhambra in the 13th century. Charles V, ruler of the Holy Roman Empire from 1516, built the court of Charles V in the 16th century. The Generalife gardens are a well-deserved UNESCO World Heritage Site, built by Mohammed III in the 14th century. Once you have finished here, enjoy a guided tour to the historical city center to explore the surroundings of the Royal Chapel, the Alcaiceria, Corral del Carbon, the Cathedral and more. You'll also get the chance to wander off and find some traditional tapas.

Start the day with a convenient pickup from your hotel, followed by a relaxing drive out of the city to Ardales. Listen to your friendly guide as they share their fascinating insight into the history of the region as you pass through small towns and farmlands. Arrive at the Caminito del Rey, gather your trekking gear and prepare to embark on a journey that's bursting with scenery, geology, and history.

Although we had to wait a long time to depart Tarifa(not the company or guide's fault), this was a very organised and enjoyable trip. The restaurant was better than expected, even though the drinks were expensive. Just wish we had more time to explore the old town. Excellent value for money.
Everything was great, the guide very knowledgeable but felt a little rushed. Granada visit was great too with enough time to eat and have a little look around as a taster. Transfer coach very comfortable with Air-con and a stop between Granada and Malaga. Thank you.
Excellent experience. I was surprised by the building and commercial importance of this city. I was fascinated to know the customs and culture of this community. It was very nice to share the food and music of this town.
Very beautiful landscape, discover the culture of the place and the explanations in the various places where we lingered (visit to the camels, restaurant, ride in the souk etc ..) I recommend it;)
A rich and worthwhile trip - great value. Can safely recommend this trip. Just wish we had more time to take pictures of places and less to shop / market
