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!

Its a fun experience, that is perfect after a hot day in the city. As a first timer the explanation was perfect and easy to follow. While you paddle you get some nice facts about the things you see and can enjoy the amazing view!
