Interesting, knowledgeable and entertaining

Alex was a great guide, he was very knowledgeable and had no problem answering any questions thrown at him. The time went very quickly as he entertained us with historic facts and stories. He managed the large group very well and did not lose anyone which must have been difficult at times as Seville was very busy. I would fully recommend this tour.

Our guide did a wonderful job showing us around all three sites!

Carmen was amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable about each location, and told great stories and legends. She did a wonderful job incorporating Spanish history with the architecture to help paint wonderful stories about all three sites. Would recommend again!

Great tour cathedral , Alcazar and Giralda tower

Myself and my wife attended this three hour tour and found it to be really interesting and informative , Alexander did a great job even though he wasn't feeling too good and couldn't fault him I would thoroughly recommend this tour

Great to see a bit of the beautiful city

Sadly we didn’t have enough time to really make full use of this due to us being on a coach trip to Seville, but what we saw, we enjoyed it...!! Very expensive for one round trip...!!
