Yes, well worth doing. The biggest problem was that the guide had to cope with giving the tour in three languages and it got boring. The other problem was that when she spoke English she spoke too quickly and with a strong accent so that we could not fully understand what she was saying. However, the tour showed us the main important monuments and attractions of Seville and it was an advantage not to have to do it ourselves from a guide book.
tour director was rushed and didn't get a great in depth visit
Enjoyable, interesting and informative. Well worth doing.
Tour was very good. however, the company that organized it did a very poor job. they did not pick us up at the hotel they told us to go to and then they told us to go to another hotel about 2-3 miles away and we had to walk to it and it was our first day in the city so we didn't know where we were going. It was very stressful. However, the guide was very good.
The tour was very good but the English speaking guide did not speak English. No one(including Americans, Canadians, British and Austrailans) could understand a word she said in English. Very frustrating. All we could do was look at everything, but we didn't know what anything was.
The experience of this tour left a lot to be desired. The tour guide while conversant in English and Spanish struggled with communication delivery. Lola seemed to rush through the tour and transitioned from Spanish to English with little pause and accent we struggled to pick up. Seville is a beautiful town and we enjoyed the sights but felt handicapped by not being able to pick up the history and culture of the various attractions. What left us feeling more disappointed was that we were asked to leave the tour suddenly immediately after covering the Alcazar because the Cathedral, which was the next stop and adjacent to the Alcazar was NOT PART of the "Historical portion of the tour". This left us confused at multiple levels because we struggled to understand how the Cathedral was not part of Seville's history, we were not informed upfront (as part of the tour description) that the Cathedral tour was NOT part of our tour agenda and it was only 2.5 hours into what was promised to be a 3.5 hour ( provided in the tour description). We felt a bit cheated and did not feel we got our money's worth from a quality of tour standpoint. Recommendation: Please check what is covered and what is not, intricate differences between a 1/2 day "classical" versus "historical" tour and avoid the mentioned tour guide. I did call to express my displeasure and was asked to document by concerns over email.
Seville is a beautiful, seductive and interesting city, and it would have been wonderful to have had a good guide on this tour, as there is so much we would have liked to know, but unfortunately the lady who was our "guide", spoke such bad English, that half the time we could not understand a word that she said. She spoke a lot of Spanish, and seemed to rush through the English commentaries. Unfortunatly I did not get her name, otherwise I could have saved others this total waste of money.
Had same guide as river cruise. Could not understand her and she lost my wifr and mu=yself before the end of the trip!! Sights werer great though.
When booking this tour we selected English as the tour language. We found out that it was Spanish,English and French. Very disappointing.The focus seemed to be on the Spanish speaking participants. Could not hear the guide as she was very soft spoken. She needed a microphone and we needed hearing devices We missed a lot of what she was saying. We were not pleased with this tour at all. We did not feel we learned much at all of the historical sights. I would make sure anyone taking this tour checked on the language spoken and not a combination
The tour could have been very interesting, as Seville is a beautiful city but the guide was very hard to understand and spoke to fast. All on tour were English speaking except for one. Tour guide spoke as if reading from a script and there wasn't spontaneity as we have grown accustomed to on other Viator tours.
Should allow more time at each site. I felt like we were rushing!
The places visited were great on the historical tour however the guide, although very nice, was not an official guide and we could have probably had a Spanish friend to take us around and learnt as much or little.
