My Review

I was extremely disappointed by this tour. I had been in Seville for almost a week (using it as a base to travel to Cordoba and Granada as well). On the tour day (Sat 1 Jun 13), the Cathedral was closed and I was just informed on the pick-up spot of this reason. I'd been in Seville for about a week (using it as a base to go to Cordoba and Granada too). I'd walked past the Cathedral a couple of times but had not entered it because I waited for this tour. The guide did not compensate anything (the tour finished at about the same time mentioned in the program though). The guide spoke in 3 languages: Spanish, French and English. I think 3 languages is just too much and it might force her to speak very fast to manage the time. I had a couple of tours in Spain and they were usually conducted in English and Spanish. Also, I did the private walking tour by another smaller company in Seville a few days prior to this tour. It was much much better and it was very personal and full of information. Overall, I felt it was not really worth the money if you miss the Cathedral. Try something like a private walking tour for half a day and it may cost almost the same or even less than this tour. Of course, it doesn't include the Cathedral and the Alcazar but at least you know that you can get to these places by yourself later!

My Review

Toledo is a very charming and scenic city and without the help of the guide, we would have been lost inside the city wall. The bad point about this tour is that the guide spoke in both Spanish and English. That means he had to repeat everything in English after Spanish explanation. The time for taking photos was also very short. The guide would walk very fast without looking back so we needed to run after him all the time. However, the walking experience in Toledo was wonderful and if you don't have much time here, I would recommend you get a tour like this one.
