Outstanding tour. I highly recommend Jesus, our tour guide. He clearly explained the ruins and buildings going from prehistory to Roman to Muslim to Christian, including the cultural context. Our group was mix of Spanish and English speakers and Jesus described everything in both languages including humorous notes. By end of tour, I understood uniqueness of Carmona as a continuously occupied town always building, literally, on its past. Take this tour and ask for Jesus!

It is an ideal way to acclimatise to a city. We always do a complete circuit first, then go to the most stand out location and perhaps somewhere that is a distance from our hotel.

Despite the heat, we were able to see a lot and didn't have to walk to everything. However, some things cannot be seen from the bus, so you have to get off.

Great tour, unfortunately downtown Santa Cruz cannot be accessed as the streets are too narrow.

Great way to get to know Seville even if the historic center is pedestrianized.
