Very highly recommended, if you're a fan of ghost stories you'll love it. A nice bit of history thrown in and Julio is a very friendly, patient and passionate guide. He was happy to answer questions and was very knowledgable about the myths of Seville.

Ivan our local guide was very informative about his city and it’s history whilst being amusing and easy to chat with. A great way to see beautiful Seville and much easier than walking in the heat.

Julio is the best guide who teaches history by gravitating tourists with descriptive ghost stories. He is literally amazing and the tour is so so so fun.

Everything perfect, tried really great tapas that we would never have ordered. Beautiful hours spent in a fun atmosphere!

Julio gave an amazing and very well informed story! He is a good storyteller.
