The guide on the bus was friendly and knowledgeable. The tour guide at the Alhambra was a font of excellent information and stories, able to answer all my questions.
Great Tour You Can Tailor to Your Needs

A group of 6 of us did the Malaga to Granada Alhambra tour off of a cruise ship. We did the large group transportation from the ship to Granada, which worked well as we were able to get commentary from the guide on the bus on the area and history. We then did a private tour of Alhambra, which allowed us to see it at our own pace and have good conversations with the guide. Both guides were excellent, and Malaga Day Tours handled the large group transportation/private tour arrangements flawlessly. Malaga Day Tours was an excellent choice for us.
Terrific tour

On the long bus ride, we got a lot of information about the area and it’s history. Alhambra was fantastic. Even though it was fairly crowded, we got to spend as much time as we needed. The palace and summer home were beautiful. We liked this much more than Alcazar which was extremely crowded and much the same as Alhambra.
Spectacular Tour of the Alhambra

We enjoyed or wonderful private tour of the Alhambra with our guide Daniel. We were able to skip all the lines and walk through with ease. It was a gorgeous day and Daniel was filled with information and enthusiasm for this magnificent sight. We learned so much and saw areas we would not have discovered on our own. I would highly recommend this tour!
Alhambra is a lot of walking

Alhambra was amazing. However, Viator should warn customers how much walking is involved. It was a tremendous amount of walking, which took away from the tour.
