A long time on the bus - must have been 3 hours in either direction. The Santa Cruz District (the old Jewish Quarter) was lovely, with its narrow laneways and little plazas. The Cathedral is very impressive, and you can't miss the tomb of Christopher Columbus. Don't waste your free time by doing the river cruise - all of the buildings of note are set back from the river and are obscured by trees. The Royal Palace is still used by the current King, and would have been a much better use of our free time.
Well done. Listening to the same description in four languages only draw back. Great experience. Well done.
The trip to Seville is a must do if you are in the Costa del Sol. Because May is a shoulder season, we had pick ups at many resort locations. Also, in order to make a full bus, the tour was given in 4 languages. That resulted in steady chatter with only 25% being relevant to us. Despite these things, we loved the day. My only suggestion is that a meeting place and time be established outside of the church in case someone gets separated from the group as I did. It is a good idea to say "stay together" but the reality crowds and the size of the venue can create confusion. In addition to being a little panicked, it held up the rest of the group by 10 minutes or so.
Something went wrong and my friend and I did not get on the Seville trip, but instead we were offered the trip to Granada, which was a trip we really enjoyed. The bus was wonderful, the guide who spoke spanish, french, english and italian was really good and the female guide we had in "the Alhambra" was amazing. Sweet and attentive to everyone on the trip. Everything was so beautiful and I would definitely book another trip with Viator, if I come back to Costa del sol.
Enjoyed the trip. Only concerns were no notice of trip cancellation, fortunately was able to re-schedule for 2 days later. Also lunch stop was late, around 2pm.
Amazing tour of the cathedral and plaza Espana...added boat ride was relaxing and a bonus....
Good tour although you only get a short amount of time in Seville.
My second favorite tour after Granada. I did the optional Guadalquivir River tour and it was worth it. Plaza de Espana and the Cathedral in Seville are spectacular. I loved it....I wish this tour would include a panaramic tour of the city.
It was a long day . But the trip was certainly worth the effort. Our guides had to speak in 4 languages. I am ever so impressed with their expertise. The guides were imformative and no one became lost. The crowds were huge so the guides had to compete with many other groups. All in all, we enjoyed our day.
We had a good guide on the bus and a good local guide. We did not opt for lunch but were taken to the restaurant and then released. It would be better to have been released earlier - just a suggestion. Otherwise we enjoyed the guide and the tour - much better than on our own with limited time.
So much history. Lovely city. the city guide had to use 4 languages and would only say 1 or 2 sentences at a time and it made it very confusing to follow her.
