Sevilla is a very beautiful city. This tour certainly did justice to it, The morning session was a wow, a memorable time We also did the afternoon, this included the boat trip which was uninteresting. The bullring afterwards did rescue it.
Do the morning, but the afternoon would be improved if the boat sank in advance of you boarding it.
Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about this city, which really made this tour quite enjoyable. While it's very easy to show yourself around town, his narration really made it worth going on the tour.There were two less-than-stellar points; 1) waiting to enter Alcazar and then the amount of time inside the palace - too long. Since these palaces are not furnished like many castles are, the tours can really be much shorter, and become tiring. If I had it to do again, I would end the tour before entering Alcazar, find out when the lines are the shortest and go on my own. 2) The river cruise after lunch has nothing to see but bridges built in 1931 and is very short with rather unsightly scenery. By the time we got to the Bull Ring, we decided to go home and skip it altogether. I do highly recommend the morning portion, though.
Very good river trip disappointing. Tour guide absolutely fantastic.
There was plenty to see on this full day tour,especially the beautiful mosiacs and tiles.Arabic,Spanish and Italian craftmanship like we had never seen before. Thank goodnessyou have time on your own to take photos because quite frankly I think our local guide LOLA wished she was elsewhere. Jose,who was our quide at the end of the day was the complete opposite.A real gem. Even after the tour was over and he had knocked off for the day,he took us to one of his special little places and even paid the admittance fee himself. He was real good value,so was our bus driver Mario.In all,plenty to see and enjoy. A good day.
This was too much in one day. The time at the bullring and the cruise was perfect, but should have MUCH more time at the Cathedral and/or the Quarter. We thought we'd have time to go back by ourselves on another day, but we couldn't fit that in any other day. It was beautiful, but rushed.
The palace tour was very good. The rest was only average in my opinion.
Other than the female guide herself complaining about the lack of organization from the company who hired her and the fact that she manage to lose 4 people right before entering the Royal Alcazar Palace this tour was not good. Also they advertised a visit to the Bull Fighting Ring that never happened, their excuse was that a national holiday interfered with the visit, my question to them is how didn't they know about this? Other than that, the bus that they use for transportation is very comfortable and clean, they were on time for the visits and they were knowledgeable about the locations.
This was doomed from the start. Our contact left a message for us stating he'd pick us up at a coffee shop down the street not at the hotel as planned. The next morning we waited for 10 minutes then called him. He said he was in a traffic jam and would be there in 15 minutes. 15 minutes later, a lady comes up to us from a huge tour bus and says come with her. This was suppose to be an English speaking tour guide in a luxury mini van. Now we are with a huge tour. The translator spoke Spanish first - English 2nd then French. The Spanish translation was always long, English and French much shorter. We didn't see the Royal Alcazar Palace that much, because we were already 30 minutes behind schedule and she rushed us so much. She didn't have a microphone, so we could barely hear her and her English was poor. She had a bad attitude and nobody was happy on this tour.
One of the worst trips I've ever had in my entire life. The tour guide spoke verrrrrry fast and I did not learn a thing. She couldn't care less whether we understood what she said or not. She spoke without pausing . I did not appreciate seville at all because it was hard to catch what she was saying
