Mesmerising..!! Alcazar Palace is breathtaking, loved the intricate details on the walls and ceilings. The gardens are stunning, worth taking more time to enjoy them. Christopher Columbus is buried in Seville Cathedral which I didn’t realise. The cathedral itself is enormous…..from which you can take 34 floors (slopes rather than steps) up to the Giralda tower giving you a bird’s eye view of the beautiful city.

Pablo was our guide. He was absolutely excellent. We had an amazing time. Thank you Pablo for all the knowledge about this plac

The bus trip provides a good starting point for exploring Seville. The free walking tour was well worth doing.

Awesome tour. Miguel's knowledge made the places come alive, and he's funny.

We had a good experience other than having to wait a bit at times.
