I've attempted to purchases standard 14 Euro Alhambra tickets directly from the Alhambra. The May calendar will not be available until March 1 (per their web tech support). I know it's only a week away, but I really want to get this settled NOW! :)
Alhambra tech support included this link as explanation on why I could not get May tickets yet. I was unable to translate.
Question: Several, but not all guided tour operations that I've searched for online are currently booking tours for May 1. Does anyone know if they can actually do this.... the tour outfits might be exempt from the purchases blackout? My concern is that I would arrive for our 2 nights in Granada and not be able to see the Alhambra because a tour company was 'betting' on getting tickets. I am suspicious since some tours are not booking May.
