Alhambra and Generalife Gardens Tour in Granada with Skip-the-Line

Full-day shore excursion from Malaga to the Alhambra palace complex in Granada

Visit Granada and discover the famous Alhambra Palace - a World Heritage UNESCO Site.  We will pick you up and return you back to the Malaga port in time for departure - guaranteed.

In the morning we will pick you up for a transfer to Granada to visit the mighty Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens. We will drive through the Andalusian countryside in a new and comfortable van, minibus, or motorcoach for the two hour transfer.  On arrival at the Alhambra Palace you will discover a maze of magnificent halls and intimate courtyards decorated by rows of elegant arches, bubbling fountains and splendidly carved decorations. You will see the Palace of Charles the 5th, an outstanding example of Spanish Renaissance architecture, and the Alcazaba fortress with its Torre de la Vela tower offering spectacular views of Granada.

We will continue our visit to the Generalife, a royal place of leisure and recreation with beautiful exotic gardens, stunning water features and the lingering aroma of jasmine.

In the afternoon - time permitting - there will be free time to visit the historical city center of Granada with its enormous Moorish, Christian and Jewish cultural heritage. A walk through the medieval Moorish Albaicín neighborhood leads to the River Darro with great views of the Alhambra across the banks and a maze of tiny streets filled with little Arab shops, restaurants and tea houses.  You will have a short time for lunch (extra) and you can explore on your own before we head back to the Malaga port for departure. This is a wonderful day trip!
