Greet your knowledgeable guide at a central Granada location, then embark on your enriching exploration of the city. Weave your way around the ambient historic center, strolling through Bib Rambla Square as you note the cosmopolitan cultural influences manifested in the architecture. 

Gaze at the buttery sandstone façade of Granada Cathedral as you guide offers insight into the legends that surround it, then venture to the Moorish silk market of Alcaicería to admire its opulent features. Hear about Granada’s power and prosperity under the Nasrid rule and learn about the Islamic and Catholic influences that have shaped the city’s spectacular skyline. 

Next, ascend a gentle hill and arrive amid the antique charm of Albaicin, an UNESCO-listed enclave considered the historical heart of Granada. Marvel at panoramic vistas of the Darro Valley and absorb the regal majesty of the Alhambra palace complex on the adjacent incline. Navigate the ambient labyrinth of streets replete with cobblestones and flower-filled boxes, then bid farewell to your guide at the Plaza Nueva.

By far the best tour booked during our 3 weeks in Spain Senne was well informed of both current & historical aspects of the Granada area. This tour made such a difference to how I perceived Granada Thank you!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Thank you so much for your review. We feel totally honored by what you said about Cicerone and Senne. We think history isn't only synonym with past. History builds the present too, so that's why we enjoy so much telling about both of them. Thanks for appreciation. CiceroneTeam

This was the perfect introduction to Granada. Our tour guide Lucy was knowledgable and friendly. She took us to all kinds of spots that we would not have known to go to view the Alhambra and also answered all of our questions. There were just 4 of us on the tour so we got a really in depth tour. We loved it! I would do this again if I were going to Granada.

We were the only two persons booked and so had a private tour. Granada is small city around which it is easy to walk, and we had already been to the Cathedral and Alhambra the previous day. However, we valued this tour for visiting small streets in the area of Albaicin, which we would not have found ourselves, and to which we then returned on our own the following day. Stephanie was very informative and we covered a good amount of ground. She took us into buildings and courtyards which we would not have found ourselves. We were gald to have booked this tour.

I enjoyed this tour with Lucy, our tour guide. Lucy has a degree in Spanish history and architecture which made the tour very interesting. She explained Granada's history as well as the details of the architectures as she pointed out buildings, monuments, churches and the carmens that dot the city. She shared facts that one would not normally hear in tours i.e. how can you tell if your orange tree will produce a bitter and sweet lemon? She gives insights to the landscapes and homes in Granada. Very detailed information about the Madraza architecture. Great tour!
