A very nice tour of four really nice and charming tapas bars. We had a nice and humorous evening with a very nice group and a super nice guide with delicious food and traditional Andalusian specialties and drinks. I can only recommend the tour to anyone who wants to get to know and love the Andalusian cuisine and culture. You can also see a lot of Seville during the tour and get to know the evening life there.

Great flamenco show with a singer and guitarist. The dancing was absolutely exceptional. Get there early to get the best seats. The only down side was the seats are very, very close together so you have to get very cosy with people you don’t know in the heat! Excellent value for money.

Informative. The small group allowed the guide to answer any questions we had. Would recommend.

Although the room was a bit hot, the show and the performers were excellent.

Great flamenco show, whole family loved it. The museum itself is so so..
