The tour was really lovely. Our guide, Rosa was amazing the whole time, starting with an introduction to the history of Seville. She explaimed every room with passion and respect for the history of the building and past. We laughed along the way and we were amased by the unique architecture and details, the respect of the people to art and other cultures more than hundred of years ago. Thanks to our guide we aquired a new perspective towards the whole city and the palace itself.

Miguel was just amazing. Since I was with a family with 2 teenage kids so was apprehensive if there's something for them but he made sure we all were involved and never felt rushed to finish the tour or any question we had. He was very knowledgeable and made it a memorable tour.

Daniel was a wonderful guide. He showed us so many interesting details that we would have missed otherwise. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend!

Really interesting tour of the Alcazar. I think the tour guide was called Maria and she gave great detail about the history and details you would overlook without the tour.
