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.
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.
the guide was totally boaring !! all of the bus were old ladies and men ! i regret paying every penny .. although the said it is included hotel pickup but we were asked to go to a restaurant next to our hotel !
This is the worst tour ever. First of all, this is a large group. The tour guide spoke 3 languages. The English version is shortened. Then, we took a walking tour at Santa Cruz where she told us to use the restrooms. By the time I came out, the tour group was gone! The tour guide didnot make an effort to wait for me at any of the following sight point. Just left me in the middle of no where. When i called the office, the was no one speak English! This happened all before I visited the Cathedral and the Alcazar. So I had to wait in line to purchase my own tickets. I sent an email to Viator and did not received any apology or response after two weeks. The one star is for the sight of Seville. A beautiful city!
I was extremely disappointed by this tour. I had been in Seville for almost a week (using it as a base to travel to Cordoba and Granada as well). On the tour day (Sat 1 Jun 13), the Cathedral was closed and I was just informed on the pick-up spot of this reason. I'd been in Seville for about a week (using it as a base to go to Cordoba and Granada too). I'd walked past the Cathedral a couple of times but had not entered it because I waited for this tour. The guide did not compensate anything (the tour finished at about the same time mentioned in the program though). The guide spoke in 3 languages: Spanish, French and English. I think 3 languages is just too much and it might force her to speak very fast to manage the time. I had a couple of tours in Spain and they were usually conducted in English and Spanish. Also, I did the private walking tour by another smaller company in Seville a few days prior to this tour. It was much much better and it was very personal and full of information. Overall, I felt it was not really worth the money if you miss the Cathedral. Try something like a private walking tour for half a day and it may cost almost the same or even less than this tour. Of course, it doesn't include the Cathedral and the Alcazar but at least you know that you can get to these places by yourself later!
