    Very enthusiastic and interesting tour. Guide was smiley and knew how to tell a short story, bring it to conclusion and move on. Use of mini ear pieces meant you could wander around whilst listening to her. Small group worked well. The Palace was amazing and the 90 mins was just right. Very enjoyable.

    The tour was great. Especially the tour guide Teresa (Theresa). She knew the history of the place and she gave us all the information in a clear way. What we liked very much was the pace of the tour, She did not rush through the palace took the time to allow for the group to follow her in a comfortable pace and always was ready to answer additional questions. we went a month ago on the Viking river cruise and some of the tour guides rushed through the tour sometimes gave too much information (overwhelming) with Teresa it was perfect. This place is beautiful, amazing gardens to walk through. We love Seville. Thank you.

    Great tour by Lydia - funny, informative, interactive, entertaining

    Completely fulfilling the stereotype that Spanish people talk a lot (her words), Lydia made the tour of the Alcázar a very entertaining and instructive experience. She really knows her stuff, engages her audience well and expertly guides her group through a truly beautiful palace, all the while explaining details of the decor, the function of the rooms and many anecdotes of times long past. Complete recomendation.
