What people are saying about Seville Cathedral

Exceptional tour, exceptional guide (Alejandro)

Loved this tour. The content was perfect. Queues were skipped which is really good when it is very hot (as it was!). Alejandro knew his history and spoke in a way which held my attention. The headphones worked perfectly. Well worth the cost, which I thought was very reasonable as it included the entrance fees and was for 3 hours. I would recommend that attendees take a drink and a hat and wear proper shoes (not flip flops) as there is plenty of walking plus you can climb the giralda which could be quite hard on the legs.

Excellent guide! Knowledgeble, great presentation..

Jesus was really the jem in your tour...he knows history, he knows how to mingle information in order to make them pleasent for everybody...friendly, but not to much...great guide...and nice tour...

Our guide Alejandro was exceptional. Very well organized & informative

We had an exceptional experience thanks to the guide Alejandro. He was very well versed with the history of the sites, made the commentary interesting mixed with friendly humor.

Seville: Alcazar, Cathedral & Giralda Guided Tour Reviewed by Anonymous, 05/14/2019

Incredible guide who made history and facts interesting

Laurens our guide delivered history and facts with personality taking questions whenever they were asked with factual answers tinged with humour where possible My party went to The wrong meeting point due to a clerical error but she phoned to track us down before commencing the tour A difficult member of the party did not phase her and she dealt with her in a calm polite efficient manner

Interesting history & beautiful sights - a must do!

The most interesting Cathedral tour we have done! Views from the tower are fantastic, don’t miss them. Alcazar combines beautiful architecture, gardens and history! Guide spoke excellent English, included historical and modern (Game of Thrones film sights) in a well paced tour. Highly recommend this tour!
