Very pretty city. The walk through the old part of Seville was interesting.The tour guide we had once we got to Seville was very knowledgable. If you have the option to pay extra for the boat trip take it. Great value for 16 Euro. Lots of wasted time on this tour while you pick up and drop off people. And they dropped us off on the highway and we were told to walk to our hotel. Guide leaves the tour after returning from Seville and the bus driver takes over. Very odd.
An excellent trip with a first class courier called Pako Seville was well worth a visit The trip was very well organised, plenty of comfort and coffee stops.. Would miss out the boat trip optional
The tours were great! We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and arch.We would liked to have a better selection of meal opportunities at an earlier hour. It is difficult for elderly people to begin the dinner hour at 9 or 10pm. And then rise at 5am for the next tour. This would make a more pleasant experience in our opinion.
Great, but extra time at pit stops would be great as most of our coffee break is spent queuing at the loos or counters. Otherwise enjoyed our fleeting visit. Great driver who was both courteous and careful.
A beautiful city though the tour was too short. Luckily I did not include lunch and was able to take in the bullring and museum tour alone, which was worth it. I was also able to walk around and enjoy the city more.
For a one day tour, you cover quite a bit. First you stop at the Plaza de Espana, where the nineteen twenty nine exhibition was held, which was amazing and beautiful! Then you get a detailed tour of Seville's Cathedral, the third largest in all of Europe. You see Christopher Columbus' tomb, and the magnificent altar. Basically, those are the highlights, and you still get about an hour for shopping and wandering around Seville if you don't pay for the lunch, and then you can take the optional river boat cruise, but I didn't think it was really worth the price. Overall, when in the area, you can't miss Seville!
This was a fun trip. Our tour guide was great, and we had a good time. I would definitely not waste your money on the optional boat tour at the end of the day. That was a total waste!

Our tour guide was very charming and knowledgeable. He also was fluent in German, English and French, and could be well understood.
The tour itself was good. This was supposed to be a 10-hour tour and ended up 15 hours because we were picked up first and dropped off last. An option to meet the bus somewhere else would have been nice, and given us an extra hour of sleep!
The drive with the view of the olive trees was beautiful. I would have liked to have had a longer bus city tour before the walking tour.
We really enjoyed our trip to Seville. However our experience was marred by a couple of events.
We were told we would be picked up in a location in Marbella at 7.10am. We arrived at the designated point at 7am and waited for 25 minutes - and no bus came to pick us up.
We had to wait until 9am to find out what had happened. The kind lady we spoke to at the local travel company didn't know what had gone wrong. We confirmed with her the meeting point, which was correct, so we made no mistake waiting at the wrong place. She rang up the tour guide/bus driver who said he had waited at the meeting point from 7am to 7.35am. As far as we were concerned this was a downright lie.
To their credit, they offered us a refund, an alternative trip or to go to Seville on another date. We chose to go to Seville on the day we would be flying back to England. It's a shame it took us four and a half hours to get back to Marbella from Seville due to dropping off other passengers in central Malaga at rush hour. We were told we would arrive back at Marbella at 6.30pm or 7 or "maybe a little later". We actually arrived at 8.30pm, meaning we had to rush back to our hotel to pick up our suitcases and catch the bus back to Malaga at 9.15pm.
We only chose to go on the trip because we believed there would be enough time to make our flight, which there was. But we were worried we would miss the bus due to the ridiculous amount of time it took to get back to our destination. Nevertheless we enjoyed the actual day trip. It was informative. It was just a shame the bus driver didn't turn up on our scheduled day and we had no way of finding out what had gone wrong.
Too much time spent picking up other tourists en route to Seville.
Travel time each way was at least 3.5 hours--way too long.
Maybe there should be a central meeting point when the distance to the travel destination (in this case Marbella to Seville) is so far.
In fact, my travel partner got motion sickness and couldn't travel the following day on her pre-paid Viator Ronda trip.
Also, having the tour guide speak in three languages (French/German/English) gave too little time for a fuller English explanation.
Local guide was hard to understand. Would had been helpful if maps were provided to help find our way around the old town district.
