Day Trip to Granada from Seville: Alhambra and Albaicín

1. Day Trip to Granada from Seville: Alhambra and Albaicín

Depart Seville and journey to the city of Granada to take a tour of the historic Alhambra, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural importance and architectural beauty. Benefit from the services of an official tour guide and expert interpreter of the heritage of the city and fortress, built for the Nasrid emirs who ruled Spain in the 13th and 14th centuries. Marvel at the fortifications of the Alcazaba (citadel), built to protect the city's post-Roman districts, including the Moorish suburb of "El Albayzín." Admire the beauty of the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife, the summer pleasure gardens of the Emir. Next, drive to the center of Granada for lunch (own expense). Then, take a guided walk of the UNESCO-protected Albaicín district where the winding streets are reflective of its Medieval Moorish past. Stroll past whitewashed houses and encounter age-old churches and flower-filled balconies. Stop to take in the spectacular panoramas over the Alhambra fortress perched on its hill.  Return to Seville at the end of your historical adventure, and get dropped off at your original starting point.

It was a great and hassle free trip to Granada and the Alhambra. Zoraida, our guide, is very friendly, informative and cared for our well being. Even with a large group, the tour is well managed and on time. The drive is pleasant and the roads are the best. Scenery is composed mainly of olive plantations.

An incredible experience. Bus was very comfortable and guides were excellent at telling stories and history. This is definitely worth the long trek in my opinion. The castle tour is a once in a lifetime experience. I think it should be on everyone's bucket list.

Great trip - packed a lot in a long day! The Alhambra tour was terrific - Carlos Fuentes was an excellent guide for our group. And Petra was a great overall guide.

The knowledge of the guides specially Alba at Alhambra was increíble. Learned a lot.
