A great way to experience the city and get your bearings much faster that you could on foot. Also a great activity for children, who have more fun this way than with a regular cultural guided tour!

A very good experience. We recommend doing the Alcazar and the Cathedral Mosque first if you don't have time to do it all. Stephanie is really an excellent guide.
