Generalife tours are very popular among Granada visitors, and it's easy to understand why. The Generalife gardens are quite spectacular and are simply a pleasure to explore. It doesn't hurt that virtually all of the Generalife tours also include a tour of the neighboring Alhambra, and there are even some that pick guests up at their respective hotels.
Organized tours of the Generalife and the Alhambra are offered on a daily basis. These tours come in the forms of both group tours and private tours, and they don't necessarily have to originate out of Granada. There are also Generalife Alhambra tours that begin in Seville, Malaga, and a few other destinations in southern Spain.
Often times, the Generalife and Alhambra compounds aren't the only attractions that are highlighted on Generalife Alhambra tours. The Albaicin district figures among the stops on some of the tour itineraries, for example, and generally speaking, the city's historic core is highlighted. Special Generalife Alhambra tours that include trips into the Granada historic district are offered daily from January 1 to July 31 and from September 1 to December 31. These organized group tours can accommodate up to 30 people, and they are available in both Spanish and English. The prices are relatively high, though they are worth every pound, penny, and/or euro.
No visit to Granada would be complete without taking a tour of the Generalife and the Alhambra as these are some of the historic highlights that make this area so unique. Audio tours are available in a variety of languages for those who wish to go that route, and it should be noted that many of the guided tours allow guests to eventually break away and explore as they please. There are Generalife Alhambra tours to suit a range of preferences, and for tourists in need of some help when it comes to organizing one, the Granada tourism offices are good places to start. These offices can be found at Plaza de Marian Pineda 10 bajo and Calle de Santa Ana 4.
