This day adventure was completely worth the money! It’s basically a bus ride to Seville and back. The tour guide, Ceila, provided a lot of interesting information about the country, the landscape, the agriculture along the way. Her English was great and easy to understand. The bus ride was comfortable and the ride wasn’t as long as I anticipated. There is an optional boat tour for 16 euros at the end of the day. In hindsight, I would have rather taken the time to tour the Moor Castle or just sit in a square and eat more tapas and wine. The boat tour wasn’t interesting. We had 5 hours of free time. I was able to go through the cathedral, go up the bell tower, walk up and down the shopping area, sit for a long lunch of tapas and wine, tour the bull fighting arena and do the boat tour. All this was done in low season however (January). I doubt I could have gotten so much in at high season. I highly recommend this trip!!

It was a wonderful tour! It wasn’t too long or too short. Perfect! We even finished inside the Alcazar so you can roam around my yourself once the tour is done before leaving. Guide was kind and very intelligent on all the local history. Highly recommend this tour!

Patrizia was an excellent guide! Extremely prepared, fun and engaging. It allowed us to look at the monuments with the eyes of a local person, also giving us valuable advice

Carolina was fantastic, very detailed information and did not rush through the tour. super happy

Carolina made 3 hours fly away with her charming personality and deep knowledge.
