What people are saying about Seville

Grandiose, the cathedral is magnificent! Then the climb to the giralda which offers us an exceptional view of Seville, as well as the sound of its large bells and at the very top, watches over the giraldillo, a huge weather vane in the shape of a triumphant angel. Despite its height, the climb is relatively easy because there are no stairs but a ramp divided into 35 sections. No waiting to enter my cathedral, barely 5 minutes and the giralda immediately after our visit to the cathedral. Highly recommend.....a must do when in the area!

I ended up being the only one on this tour with my guide, Joseph! He was fantastic and treated me as a friend the whole time! He was incredibly knowledgeable and tailored the tour to my interests on the fly. He also made sure to take plenty of photos for me! Getting into the attractions was quick and painless. Would highly recommend.

How lucky was I to get a private tour today. Knowledgeable, intelligent and entertaining. I highly recommend this tour, just the right amount of time and great value for money

Place to visit absolutely. Very rich, allow time and a book of explanations of the works.

Good experience but wished to select a guide tour to get more out of the visit.
