Why every trip to Spain should include a private guided tour of the Alhambra

The Alhambra in Granada is the most exquisite example of Hispanic-Muslim architecture. It was the city where the Hispanic-Muslim sultans lived with their army, their court and some selected artisans. Because of this, the Alhambra has several sections, all of which you will visit during this private tour. This will allow you to understand the role that each part played during the iconic period of Spanish History when Granada was a Hispanic-Muslim kingdom.

Later you will visit the summer palace or Generalife. This is the place where the sultans would go to escape from the hustle and bustle of life within the walls of the Alhambra. The Generalife was a place designed for relaxation and contemplation and because of this it has the most beautiful gardens and some of the nicest views that the city of Granada and Southern Spain have to offer.
