Best Time to Go

There are fewer crowds, and the weather is idyllic. Most days are sunny, and you’ll want to enjoy this beautiful Mediaeval town in the cheerful sunlight.

Train from Seville to Granada

If you prefer the idea of exploring Granada on your own and simply buying a ticket to Alhambra, then catch a train.

The Seville to Alhambra day tour by train will take longer, usually between 3 and 4 hours, rather than 2 h 30 min by car. This makes it a better option if you’re planning to spend more than one day in Granada.

    Good tour, in spite of rain. Comfortable bus. Took over an hour and a half to pick up fellow travelers around Seville, so we spent nearly 5 hours TravelIing to Granada. Was exhausting.

    We enjoyed it very much. The bus ride was relaxing and the guide provided a good bit of information as we rode past various areas, though we had some trouble understanding her English due to her strong Spanish accent. At Alhambra, we did not have to wait to get in. Our guide at Alhambra was fantastic and it is a beautiful and interesting place. Great trip.

Our Guide Ms Petra from Andalsur Tours (From Seville to Granada & Albaicin Walking Tour ) was extremely energetic,friendly & helpful while Mr Fernando the Local guide for Granada Alhambra Palace was extremely informative and efficient.. Loved the trip inspite of the heat.

    The guide in the bus, Roman, was excellent. His voice was cool and he was very knowledgeable. He connected well with us. He knew when to let us rest and when to give us information. The bus stop at halfway is also very good. Albaichin is a lovely town worth the visit. Food was also very good at Café Gabriel. The guide in Alhambra was also very knowledgeable but he was just giving information without charm. The palace is a great monument but has lost its glory. One visit is enough.

    Good day going to Granads Our tour to Granada was easy and well planned. Seeing the Alhambra and the old quarter of Granada was what we hoped for. Our guide of the Alhambra could have supplied more detailed information, but we did get a decent overview. The guide who took us through the old quarter was great and helped us to have a fun day, The lunch reserved for us was in a good location with good food. Overall satisfying trip.
