Home to the magnificent UNESCO-listed Alhambra Palace, Granada is one of the great Andalucian cities, and it’s easy to visit on a day trip from nearby Seville. To help you find the perfect tour for you, here's a rundown of the options available.
The most convenient and cost-effective way to visit Granada is on a full-day group tour, traveling by bus from Seville. For the best value, choose a tour that includes skip-the-line entrance to the Alhambra and a guided tour of the palace complex, including the Alcazaba, Nasrid Palace, and the Generalife Gardens. Many tours also include hotel pickup and drop-off, a walking tour of Granada's highlights, and free time to explore independently or shop for souvenirs.
Private tours offer a more personalized experience, so you can benefit from a flexible itinerary and the undivided attention of a private guide. Independent travelers can also opt for a private one-way transfer to Granada, either direct or stopping along the way to visit other nearby cities such as Ronda or Cordoba.
