Fabulous guided tours


To understand the history, culture and how it blends with modern day Granada we felt a guide was essential. We did 3 Cicerone tours - essential Granada , twilight tour of Albaicin and Sacromonte and the Alhambra. We had a different guide for each. We cannot recommend the Cicerone tours enough. Each guide understood their subject perfectly and was able to explain in a easy way the sites, the history and the culture. We would suggest leaving the Alhambra till last if possible as by the time we got there we had a sound basis of the context. We had been recommended by friend from NZ who loved the guides. As said we 100% recommend Cicerone tours

Great Way to See the Alhambra


We chose a Cicerone tour of the Alhambra because general Alhambra tickets were sold out and Cicerone still had tours that included the Nazrid Palaces. Juan, the tour guide was great and incredibly knowledgeable. It was wonderful to enjoy looking and listening rather than being buried in a guidebook. Although we chose this tour because it was the only way we were guaranteed to see all of the Alhambra, if we had known how great this tour was, we would have definitely chosen this tour even if general tickets had been available. Juan also was our guide for a Sacromonte evening tour which was also great.

Excellent private tour of Alhambra and Generalife Gardens


It was worth every penny to take a private 3 hour guided tour for two people. Even though obviously more expensive, it still provided much better value for money than being in a large group. Our guide Estefania Rodriguez was most knowledgeable and personally on a same wavelength. In our view, there cannot be any better way to learn in such a short time as comprehensively about this wonderful place and its history.

Lucia has been BRILLIANT!!!

We have booked our guided tour at Alhambra with Cicerone and our guide Lucia has been BRILLIANT!!! We are a family of five with my eldest being 18 yo and my youngest being 10 yo. Lucia has made the visit super interesting for all of us keeping the boys engaged. We absolutely loved it and would strongly recommend it.

Amazing Peaceful Tour


This is a must do!! The beauty of the Generalife and Alhambra is indescribable. Our tour guide Juan Jiménez, was amazing. He told us the wonderful history of the castle and made the 3 hour tour very enjoyable. We got to learn a lot about the inside lifestyle of the castle and he transported us to those times with his stories. Like many of the people coming here we did not intend to take a private tour, but individual tickets were sold out so this was the only option. I can say that this was worth every penny. It’s so far the best tour and experience in my Eurotrip

Our visit to Alhambra was so pleasant and informative thanks to our guide. We started on time and she did a very good job explaining the history and geography of the palace. It's hard to get tickets for Alhambra but Cicerone makes it easy - it's all on line. I received my vouchers in time and everything went smoothly because of advanced planing. I would highly recommend Cicerone when making plans to visit the Alhambra. Our guide was also informative of other areas of Granada and was happy to share her knowledge and offer tips. Our experience was perfect - thank you!

I was lucky

I was lucky that the other participants never showed up, despite having paid for the tour. So I can enjoy a "private" visit with Violeta. I really liked the Tour and all the explanations it gave me. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you.
