Granada is ancient, beautiful and packed with history. With so much to see, it makes sense to find someone with experience at giving experiences: a Granada tour guide! If you’re thinking of visiting the city and learning all about it, going on one of the many Granada Spain Tours is a popular option. There are bike tours, bus tours, walking tours or even a segway tour of the city.
After you’ve experienced some of Granada’s delights, why not go beyond the city walls?
If you want to see all of Granada, you might find it difficult to do this by foot. While Granada is a small city, it is also quite hilly which means, walking in Granada can get quite tiring. Fortunately, you can book a ticket for the Granada sightseeing bus. The “Hop-on Hop-off” City Tour Bus is a practical and comfortable way to explore the city. Choose between one or two day tickets and jump on and off when you’d like. See the city through the panoramic windows of a Granada city tour bus!
While many of the tours have their ‘optimum route’, you can also get more involved in the planning of your trip, if you like. With customized private tours of Granada, you can choose which streets and neighborhoods you want to explore. If you haven’t already been there, however, we do recommend visiting the neighbourhoods of Albaicin and Sacromonte which most Granada city tours will include.
Join a walking tour of the medieval, Moorish neighborhood of Albaicin, which was made a world heritage site in 1984. Albaicin is near the world-famous Alhambra Palace. We have plenty of tour options for visiting the Alhambra. Tour the Alhambra by day, by night, in a group, a private tour or go without the expertly guided tours altogether. You can buy Alhambra tickets for entry alone. These are just a few of the available choices. A trip to Granada is almost synonymous with a visit to the Alhambra. Don’t miss out!
Explore the rest of the city of Granada! Take a walking tour of the historic center and the gypsy neighborhood of Sacromonte. Visit the inside of the incredible Sacromonte “Gypsy” Caves which keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. These caves aren’t just for tours; people still live in them today, as they have for hundreds of years! You can tie in a tour to the caves with a tropical coast expedition. It’s your holiday, after all!
Granada is located in the autonomous region of Andalucia in the south of Spain. It’s next to the Sierra Nevada mountain range, where four rivers converge; the Genil, the Darro, the Beiro and the Monachil.
While there is no “best time” as such, there are clear differences throughout the year. Winter will be colder, but with shorter queues and cheaper prices for Granada’s attractions. Summer is the reverse of this: hotter with long queues and more expensive. Spring and autumn are somewhere in between.
Yes is the simple answer. To find out exactly which discounts and promotions are on offer, browse the selection of available Granada Spain tours and tickets.
If you’re short on time, put the Alhambra to the top of your list and jump on a “Hop-on Hop-off” bus tour. This is a great way to get a taste of Granada in a short span of time. If you have time left over after this, try an activity, go on a day trip or a walking tour Granada is made for it!
