It is possible to go on a day trip grom Granada to Caminito del Rey.
Here are some videos and some links to book the tour.

Caminito del Rey - 138km - car
tour/transport from Granada

The Camininto del Rey is a narrow walkway secured to the steep rock face of the Chorro Gorge in the province of Málaga with spectacular views.

You can print  the tickets at home or download to a mobile device.

If you already have tour tickets printed the easiest way to access is to enter by the justice gate, if you take the mini bus up , don't get off at the main gate stop , stay on and get off at the next stop at the Justice Gate , and you may be the only ones on the bus at this point as most people collecting concession tickets get off there .

You will need the C3 bus from Plaza Isabel la Catolica at the end of Gran Via
See bus map here.

To see where the justice gate is (Puerta de la Justicia) look at this page

This page will also help you understand the layout.

Hi - my wife and I are visiting Granada in mid October.
We are staying near Plaza Nueva and we don't have a car.
I can see on the official site that tickets are available.
Is it possible to buy the tickets and print them off at home on our own printer. ( we just want two adult tickets- not any concession tickets)?

If we get to the Alhambra with our own tickets  do we have to join the queues for entry? I’ve heard that the queues are long. Or can we just enter with our tickets.

Any advice would be welcome.

What to do in Granada / Re: Day Trips from Granada

There are plenty of day trips you can go on just on the bus for example Guadix or Cordoba.
For bus info click here

The commercial day trips tend to be quite expensive but if you want to have an all included trip some of them may be interesting.

There is a day trip to the  Caminito del Rey if you have a head for heights and several more.

What to do in Granada / Re: Guided Tour, audio guide or go it alone at the Alhambra?
« Last post by John on June 07, 2018, 11:37:04 PM »
It depends if you want to walk around at your own pace without commentary or walk around with a group with a guide who is telling you things.

Only you can decide which you would prefer.

Getting a ticket would be easier if you get a guided tour because you don't have to understand anything except turn up at the start.

You can browse all the companies who offer guided tours here

https://granadainfo.com/alhambra_ticket_search.htm

or go and buy your own ticket without guide here

https://tickets.alhambra-patronato.es/en/

A way of doing your own thing and also having commentary is an audio guide.

« Last post by John on June 07, 2018, 11:33:43 PM »
Should I just try and book a ticket for the Alhambra and walk around it myself or is it worth paying extra for a guided tour?
