Overview

When your cruise ship sails in the port of Malaga, set out to explore the cultural majesty of Granada on a full-day shore excursion. Accompanied by an accomplished guide, immerse yourself in the regal extravagance of the Alhambra palace complex on a guided tour. Sail past the long lines at the crowded entrance hall with a priority access pass and immediately begin exploring vast courtyards, winding walkways and richly decorated chambers. Admire the architectural amalgamations inspired by Moorish and colonial styles then absorb the botanical beauty of the Generalife Gardens. An intimate experience is ensured with numbers limited to 18 people.
  • Full-day shore excursion from Malaga to the Alhambra palace complex in Granada
  • Skip the lines and explore the UNESCO-listed complex with an expert guide
  • Visit top Alhambra sights such as Nasrid Palaces and the Palace of Charles V
  • Admire the exotic flowers and ornate water features in the beautiful Generalife Gardens
  • Enjoy free time to explore the city center of Granada on your own, subject to available time
  • Numbers limited to 18 on this small-group excursion, ensuring a more personalized experience
  • Covered by Viator's worry-free policy: guaranteed on-time return to your ship
Disembark your cruise ship at Malaga port then climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan to begin the scenic 2-hour journey to Granada. Ascend the incline of Sabikah Hill to reach the vertiginous perch of the palace, and admire the rose-tinted walls before venturing within. 

Glide past long lines with your priority access pass, and follow your guide on an enriching journey through lavish palatial suites and courtyards replete with elaborate arches and verdant gardens. Learn about the origin of the former 9th-century fortress, and see the architectural tableau of Islamic and Renaissance styles. 

Marvel at the extravagant beauty of the Nasrid palaces, note the stylistic contrast of the Palace of Charles V, and awaken your senses to the smells and sights of the Generalife Gardens as you wander amid exotic flowers and distinctive water features. 

Time permitting, venture to the historical heart of Granada for a walking tour. Enjoy some relaxed free time to explore independently, choosing to sample local specialties in a restaurant or peruse shops for special souvenirs (own expense).

At a time prearranged with your guide, return to the minivan and arrive in Malaga well in advance of your cruise ship’s departure.

I really had no idea what I was in for on this tour. The palace and grounds were just amazing! Margarita was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and nice. Our bus guide Rafael was hysterical. He also was very knowledgeable and told great jokes. Definitely a worthwhile excursion.

This trip was a highlight of our cruise. The bus ride was long but very comfortable. Our guide filled the time with much information about the area. Our group of 41 was divided into 3 small groups when we arrived and our guide was Danny who did an exceptional job. We did a lot of walking but had time to see the buildings and gardens with history and culture well explained. We had an hour and a half down town on our own for food and site seeing. We found the trip well organized and would not hesitate to advise others to let Viator handle their tour to Alhambra.

This was a wonderful tour. The tour guide was absolutely fantastic ! We were a bit skeptical to take a private tour outside of the cruise ship tours but we will certainly do this again. The communication prior to the cruise was timely, accurate in every way and gave excellent instructions as to where to meet them, times, etc. We were on time and had the VIP treatment. A small group of only 18 as compared to the cruise ship tour groups of nearly 50 of near identical itinerary, in a nice new bus and much much less expensive than the same one from the cruise ship. We will definitely book Viator tours again. We cruise very frequently and have always taken only the cruise ship available tours. This was superior in so many ways. Thanks Viator for making our day !!

Although he ship arrived one hour late into port the bus waited for us and the guide Rafael kept us very well informed. Once at the Alhambra we had a fantastic guide, a young man named Danny or Dany, who was excellent. He was enthusiastic about his job and his knowledge of the English and the Alhambra were outstanding. Thank you for 2 excellent guides.

Very well organised tour with helpful and energetic guides.
Much bigger group than anticipated but was broken down into smaller groups during the Alhambra visit.
Electronic equipment a big plus to ensure you can hear the guide properly at all times.
The day was well planned around the cruise departure which brought comfort in using a non-cruise excursion.

This was a tour scheduled for our day in port in Malaga. The rep was on time and we had a full bus load. The trip went smoothly and the tour was exactly as promised. We had two people that did not show up for the bus on time that caused us some delay and prevented us from having as much time in the city of Grenada as we had hoped. Overall a much better value than what the ship had to offer.
