The Royal Alcazar Palace and the Seville Cathedral excursion was wonderful. I was also very pleasantly surprised in seeing the beautiful interior of the Plaza de Espana! Inside here we were able to view representations of all the provinces located within Spain -- including Zamora, the birthplace of my husband. We were very impressed!
Excellent. Funny, knowledgeable, amusing, fluent in three languages and informative tour guide made my day. Tour started on time. A very enjoyable experience.
A great way to see the major attractions and they certainly were worth seeing. The hotel pick up was efficient. We would have liked the visit to Plaza de Espana to have been a bit longer - instead of just 15 mins. The times at the other venues were fine. We found it hard to understand our guide at times - the majority of the group were English-speakers but she concentrated on the 2 Spanish speakers in the group. A bonus was that we could remain longer at the Cathedral when the tour ended and we were able to climb La Giralda.
Tour guide very good. Good overview of Seville and excellent guide through cathedral. Climbed to top of La Giralda for great views.
Great tour guide and a wonderful way to see this magical city. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Seville is a great city and the monuments are fascinating. The tour guide was very friendly and did a good job in giving us the background. I wish he had told us more of the history, context and the stories behind the palace. He just gave a brief synopsis and some of the explanations like that of the inverted map could have been clearer.
This tour was very informative but one of the main reasons we went on it was to see the cathedral but on Sunday morning it is closed to the public. If we knew this before hand we would have taken the afternoon tour! Our guide was very knowledgable and and helpful!
This is a really good introduction to the beautiful city of Seville - if I had time I would have done the full-day tour, which includes a boat trip on the river, but this morning tour was also good. I found the tour guide was not as good as I'd hoped - she has obviously done this tour 100 times, and was determined to say what she needed to say whether people were listening or not! The attractions were really good to see however - we went to the 1929 expo pavilions and gardens, the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the Jewish quarter - all beautiful places. Be aware that this tour ends at the cathedral, so you will need to find your own way back after this.
Another guide who was great! We only had 4 people on tour which meant we saw more and learned more about each place. We also upgraded to the tower to see all of Sevilla and it was beautiful.
Great guide! Was very knowledgeable and helpful. Entering the Alcazar with a guide is great as you get preferential entrance, but it is a bit rushed.
The tour and guide were great
The guide was full of information and kept us intrusted for the entire tour
Very good overall.
Saw what was on schedule except cathedral closed Sunday which I knew.
Bull fight ring replacement interesting.
The tour was spoken in three languages so was rushed , probably didn't hear enough English history on each place.
Did spend 40mins driving around Seville picking everyone up before starting at 10:10am.
We didn't get to see the cathedral since our tour was on a Sunday. It would have been nice to know this in advance.
It could be better if it was not combined (English and Spanish speaking group). Tour guide spent 3 times longer speaking Spanish than English.
A bit rushed so only recommend if you have limited time in seville
We saw what we expected to see. Our guide seemed to be going through the motions. We had accidentally booked a similar tour for the previous day which was clearly a better experience based only on the passion the guides showed for their city. However, we were fortunate enough to be the first bus pick-up, so we got to see a lot of Seville that would have escaped us otherwise.
This tour was a disappointment. Our guide tried her best, but had to switch between 3 languages at each site (even during the driving portion, impossible). Not enough time for questions...felt rushed. While they were earnest in trying to accommodate us, we would have spent the $ for private.
Very disappointed we were not able to see cathedral which was my main motivation for booking this tour. Should be made clear when booking that this part if tour is not available on Sundays. An alternate place was organised but it would not have been to the same vale of the 8 Euro charged to go to see the cathedral, which I did separately. Place Espania was very interesting. Guide spoke too quickly and didn't often do the follow on translation in Engllish after providing the Spanish version. Couldn't understand her half the time.
I was unaware that this was a walking tour. We were the 1st group to be picked up as we spent the next ~45 min picking up the other 4 groups. After the roundup, we were escorted to the Garden(?) and dropped off at Stanta Cruz Jewish Quarters(?), the 2nd and final stop, the rest was all walking tour. I understand the last minute change beyond your control as we detoured due to the closure of Plaza de Espana.
The tour guide is friendly enough but her English was a bit subpar and her voice was a bit low therefore difficult to hear and understand. Per your ad, this is suppose to be an English speaking tour.
Very disappointing tour. I chose for English but they mixed both English and Spanish group. The guide ended up speaking 80% Spanish because majority of the group speak Spanish. I'm very disappointed with Viator for this. We got one chance to learn about the city and got nothing.
