We usually really enjoy these tours, but unfortunately for us, the day was sub zero. We had signed up for an English tour but everything was said in English AND German which meant long periods standing still in the cold. After 90 mins we ran away. Too cold at this time of year.
Nice combination of bus and walking. Bus to get to the far away things like Plaza Espana - a must see and walking around within the Santa cruz historical area. Good opportunity to rest/take resfreshments and use facilities which is important in a 3 hour tour. My only issue was that the tour we had booked was advertised as being in English when in fact most of the talking was done in Spanish with a shortened English version afterwards. the tour leader tried her best to get both languages out quickly but the reality was that sometimes we had passed the particular site when the English version came out. I think it would be better to have a morning group in one language and an afternoon one in the other. Enjoyable none the less and without a car we would have found it difficult to get around all the sights in our short 2 day stay in Seville.
Amazing place. You MUST take the funicular railway from Montserrat up to St Joan..there are many walks to take up there and most are only a few minutes walk to the most breathtaking scenery. We did feel that the half day is not enough time as the queues in the basilica to see the Black Madonna were dreadfully long even on a November week day. We queued for 35 minutes and were nowhere near her when we had to leave to get our bus back. This should be a whole day trip as you need at least an hour if not more up in St Joan and you need over an hour to see the basilica and the Black Madonna. We missed out on the audio visual and the complimentary liquer tasting due to lack of time. I would still recommend it, but as I said, you cannot see the Basilica properly AND the amazing views at St Joan in a half day tour.
We always do these tours wherever we go as they are great for orientating to the city. With this City option you can do both the East West and the North South but you'd need a 2 day pass (which we took) to take advantage of both routes.
