Full description
The Alhambra is the most visited monument in Spain and an essential stop for anyone visiting Granada. If you want to discover all its secrets, its exclusive Nasrid Palaces, and the Generalife Gardens, do not hesitate to book this excursion. You can choose to be picked up from one of the different pick-up points in Costa del Sol or Malaga at the indicated time.

Very interesting trip. However, on two occasions we had to wait for customers who had to take the bus. We waited 15 minutes for two passengers at one of the meeting points and 30 minutes for another passenger at another meeting point. A total delay of 45 minutes. The guide never explained to us the reasons for these delays and does not know how to apologize to the other passengers. We did, however, have an excellent bus driver, calm and respectful of the rules of the road, especially the speed limit.

Smooth pick up and drop off - departed Malaga at 8.30am and returned at 6pm. We enjoyed our free time of around 2 hours in Granada. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. Nasrid Palaces were the highlight of the trip (some tours do not include this). Overall very good value!

The trip was really good, the pilot Annabel was really kind and told her well during the trip. In contrast, the Alhambra Jose guide himself is not polite or nervous. The coach is very comfortable and clean. Breaks during the journey are sufficient to use the toilet and possibly drink coffee. Alhambra beautiful although we watched her in the rain.
