Well worth it

This was a wonderful tour - the most beautiful part of the Alhambra was the Nasrid Palaces and we able to see them lit up at night. Our guide, Lucia, was very knowledgable and friendly and answered all our questions. She gave us plenty of time to admire the palaces, and also lots of information on the rest of the palace for the next day. The group was very small and the palaces themselves were quieter than they appeared the following morning. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Granada. Thank you, Lucia!

An outstanding guide

Senne was an outstanding guide. He was gracious, articulate, engaged, and knowledgable. He didn't sound like he had memorized a script, as is the case with some guides. His knowledge of history and Granada, and his flexibility in answering our many questions was very much appreciated. His tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain.

Alhambra with Cicerone

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. Marica

Lorca Walking Tour Granada

Truda Scriven

The Cicerone Lorca Walking Tour Granada was excellent. Maria, our tour guide, gave us the detailed background to Lorca's life in Granada as we visited all the key locations. Her knowledge, driven by her personal admiration of Lorca, ensured the tour was very interesting throughout. We highly recommend this visit to anyone wanting to discover more about the life and times of Lorca with a resident expert. Thank you Maria.

Great way to se the Alhambra and the city of Granada


So many tourists! With Juan in the lead and a small group of six we cut through the lines and crowds (as much as is possible).

Alhambra Private Tour – Spectacular and Amazing!

Loretta G

We've traveled a bit in the last few years and have learned that to get the most from a large place that is high on every tourists' list, book a private tour. This was our splurge on our two week tour of Andalucia and we were not disappointed. Our guide, Violeta, was knowedgable, personable, and clearly experienced at moving throught the spaces of the Alhambra complex. Our tour started at 5pm with a walk through the gardens towards the GeneraliIfe. Violeta gave us the history and current day use of these gardens, painting a vivid picture of what it would have been like so many centuries ago to spend a summer day at Generallife. I have so many pictures that are spectacular, I will have a difficult time selecting just a few to display. Then we walked to the fortress complex and palace. It wasn't till we were in the Palace that I realized just how valuable Violeta was to our experience. She knew just when to move from one space to another so that we often felt like the only people there. I love being in such a historic place and hear quiet rather than all the other tourists voices. To be able to feel the serenity and grandeur of what it once may have felt like was priceless. I highly recommend Cicerone as the booking, confirmation, and actual experience were easy. And if you happen to get Violeta, tell her Lori and Patrick say hi!

Granada tours


Our hotel, Casa 1800 recommended Cicerone. We chose small group tours. Twilight Albaicin and Sacromonte. This turned out to be just the two of us with a great guide Luci. This tour started at sunset in Sacramonte and we walked up past the cave houses looking at the illuminated Alhambra and then into the garden of the mosque at San Nicolas away from the crowds next door. We ended at Gran Taverna a tapas bar near Plaza Nueva. Morning at Generalife and Alhambra. With only seven on the tour it was very personal. Totally recommend Cicerone.

Excellent and informative tours!


We took both the Essential Must Do walking tour of the city of Granada as well as the full La Alhambra tour. Both were excellent. Both guides were well prepared, spoke clearly, and provided a great deal of interesting information. Even though La Alhambra was very crowded, the sound system Cicerone used (individual receivers for each participant) was excellent and we could hear the guide even if we fell behind a bit. Touring La Alhambra without a guide would be far less interesting; it is well worth the cost to get an expert guide such as the one we had. The Cicerone office is also very customer-service oriented. I needed to correspond with them (via email) to ask some questions and to make sure we were able to get on an Alhambra tour at a time that would permit us to make a travel commitment. Sandra was prompt and effective in dealing with our questions and requests.
