What people are saying about Seville

Very nice home. We are taken to the pier where the canoes-kayaks are located. So nothing to wear except the paddles. It is a great experience to go down the Guadalquivir river. The water is warm, we swam a bit in front of Americana Park, but it's not very clean. We were able to admire these monuments from the river and it's worth it. Thanks again to the bearded gentleman who welcomed us warmly!

One of the best things to do in Seville. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very unique way to look at this beautiful city. Thank you
