There are 3 choices

1. Get a guided Tour:

Getting Alhambra tickets is a complicated process with a lot to understand. If you don't want to have all the hassle of understanding about the tickets and what the Nasrid Palaces are and when to get in the queue and where to go then you can take the easy route and just get a guided tour. Someone else will take all the pain away. There are no decisions to make. This is by far the most expensive.

There are 2 guided tour links here

2. Get the tickets on ticketmaster.

Get them as far in advance as possible. You may have to spend 15 - 20 minutes on internet buying the tickets and understanding the implications. About 60% of posts on this forum are about buying tickets to the Alhambra.

This is much cheaper and is better if you like making your own decisions and don't like spending too much money.

This site has very informative info about the choices

3. Get the tickets on ticketmaster but get an audio guide

You can hire a little mp3 player with a commentary to give you more info.

I am  very confused with all the possibilities of visiting the Alhambra.

There are guided tours with several different companies and buying tickets with ticketmaster seems complicated.

Eating in Granada / ComiDos, the discount card for foodies visiting Granada?

Do you know ComiDos, the discount card for gourmets visiting Granada?

With this card, you can get significant discounts (up to 50%) in the best restaurants of Granada associated with the program.
The discount card is for two or more people. Some restaurants will apply the discount on food, others also on drinks.

The cost of the card (16 € for 15 days) is compensated in most cases with only one meal in one of our partner restaurant.

ComiDos offers much more than substantial discounts; it is also a gourmet guide that will recommend you the best restaurants in the region of Granada: we only offer places we personally would suggest to our family or our friends.

If you are a gourmet who wants to discover the gastronomy of Granada, ComiDos will guide you and allow you to make significant savings.

What to do in Granada / Re: Guided Tours of the Alhambra - Which is the best?
« Last post by John on October 22, 2015, 12:48:48 AM »
A much cheaper and probably better option than a private guide is the audio guide.
For 4 euros you can hire a small audio device that plays commentaries as you go around.

There are about 40 numbered points at the Alhambra and when you press the number on your MP3 player device you can hear a commentary.
The production quality is high and it is just as good if not better than a real human.
You can get them from the information desk next to the ticket windows.
You have to leave your passport as security.

More info here

If you are a real cheapskate you can eavesdrop on other tour guides.
I do this occasionaly, some of the guides are good and some are very bad.

There is an excellent Virtual Walking tour of the Alhambra.  Click here
