Plaza Mariana Pineda 10, Granada, Spain

The Basics

With its whitewashed buildings and deep-gardened mansions spilling down the hill, the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Albaicín ranks among Granada’s most picturesque neighborhoods. Most city tours will pass through, but it’s worth taking a walking tour to soak up the views and learn more about the area’s history, culture, and folklore. Some tours also include a walk through Sacromonte, the gypsy quarter known for its ties to flamenco.

Only way to do Sacromonte and Albaicin if you’re short on time!
Our family of 5 had the best time with Daniel. He is so passionate about Spanish history. We loved seeing Sacromonte and Albaicin by Segway. We would highly recommend this tour.

Granada: Alhambra, Abadia, Albaicin 3 hour historical tour on Segway
We had 1 day to see as much as we could of Granada. This was the perfect way. We covered what would have taken us 2 days in 3 hours. Totally recommend this company. We had an outstanding, fantastic experience with our guide Adolfo. What was also extremely important was his focus on safety. The segways were in perfect condition and he made our day unforgettable! Kudos to Adolfo, he absolutely made our day!!! We can’t wait to. One back to beautiful Granada .

Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Segway Adventure
What a perfect way to see the city! Do this early in your trip so you can see all the sites and it gives you a great overview. Granada is very hilly and steep . This is the easiest , most gun, and less taxing way to get the beautiful city . Danny was fabulous! He was so knowledgeable, friendly and patient. His English is great and he has nice charm. He is passionate about the history and what he does and it shows. We were in South Spain for 10 days and we all agree that this was one of the highlights of our trip and he have Segwayed before . Thanks Again, and good luck with your future teaching career!

Book Now Great Company& wonderful Guides

True Taste of Granada Old Town & Albaicin Tapas Tour
Book now! We have done many food tours when traveling and these people are extra special. Not only was the owner, Mahsa very accommodating and nice when we missed our connecting flight and missed part of the tour, but She was very sympathetic and made it her business to get us a tour the next day! But that just had set the tone for the actual tour the next day with Rachel & Simo. They were charming , friendly and very personable. They are very knowledgeable about Granada but were also worldly in discussing other cultures and traditions relative to the area to give a more worldly perspective. They took us around Granada and showed us many interesting places , and we had scrumptious pasteries while sitting in a locally authentic cafe amidst beautiful view of the Alhambra. This was just one of the few of many great stops we made along the way . Great accommodating company, wonderful charming and helpful ( sent us lots more information on the the topics we discussed after) tour guides, delicious food amongst the beautiful setting of Granada! What more can you ask for?

Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Segway Adventure
Wonderful trip. Save the time and book this trip and so you don’t have to walk up hills and deal with the heat. George is super knowledgeable about the city and takes pictures for you and even gives restaurant recommendations! Would do another tour with him if we came back to Granada

Gold Doubloon: Alhambra Palace and Albaicin Private Tour
I dont write reviews, ever, but really wanted to write a note of commendation for this Nhue guide service on Viator. The Alhambra speaks for itself, but more importantly, this is the guide service to use. I actually tried booking through a different, cheaper service first, but they did not follow up to phone calls or emails before my trip, which made me nervous. So I switched to this service, even though it was more expensive, and it was WORTH IT. Nhue guide service emailed me multiple times and called with WhatsApp to provide very specific instructions where to meet, what time. Our guide was AMAZING. Highly informed and educated, took a lot of time with us, no rush, lots of photos. Also shared with us things about daily life in Spain, personal stories, and a real view not just into history but modern times as well. It may seem expensive, but the Alhambra is difficult to get tickets and a book or audioguide does not do it justice, and a large group tour is no fun. If you invest in one special thing for your trip to Spain, get this private guide service for your trip to Granada.

The Best Segway tour ever

Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Segway Adventure
We have done a few Segway tours before. Special shout out to Adolfo, our tour guide) for making this our best Segway tour ever. Granada paths are up and down- and you really need a Segway to enjoy the place without getting exhausted. Adolfo navigated us up and down the hills of Granada- showing us the caves of Sacramonte, all the way up the Abbey to discover the origins of the place. We enjoyed a great view of sunset far from the crowds near the top of San Miguel church before descending to the Mirador de San Nicholas. Adolfo gave us all the time in world and some more (while obliging us by taking several pictures and videos at various locations). Truly a memorable experience.

How to Get There

The best way to explore the Albaicín is on foot, and the Plaza Santa Ana makes a good starting point. The area has practically no parking, so it’s best to either hire a taxi or catch Buses 31 or 32, which both take a circular route around the neighborhood, from Plaza Nueva.

Walk the narrow, sloped streets of Calderería Nueva and Calderería Vieja, and you might feel like you’ve stepped into Northern Africa. The two streets are lined with shops, teahouses, and restaurants selling trinkets and mint tea.
