Excellent guide. Nicely paced tour and the added bonus of the trip to the monastery which was also very interesting. Highly recommended, something that would be difficult to do on your own from Seville on public transport.

If you are a big fan of Roman history it's better to visit Italica in Seville with an organised tour or drive yourself there. Public transport is the pits, because you could wait up to 2 hours to get back to Seville by bus. Sergio was our driver and guide. He's a very informative guy.

The guide for this tour was very energetic and obviously enjoyed her job and loved Seville. She picked us up at our hotel on time. She showed us many things that were not technically on the tour. A very good value

While the tour guide was enthusiastic, his very strong local accent made him hard to understand for a native English speaker. As a result, at the end of the tour, I did not have a full understanding of the places I had visited. But the places were well worth the time - a Roman amphitheater with a trace of far less well preserved ruins nearby, medieval monastery, and even a local bar to sample wine! Pickup from the hotel and drop off was without negative issues...in fact, the guide drove us through the centre of Seville on the way to Italica to make sure we could glance at some highlights. It would be useful to visit the archaeological museum in Seville afterward as this is where many artifacts from Italica are on display.

Very interesting with a good explanation from our guide Javier. We are used to seeing a lot of Roman places where I live in Italy but it was nice to see the largest Roman ruins in Spain. The old monastery we went to was amazing as well. It was also off season so we had the guide all to ourselves which was wonderful to be able to ask him questions.. There are a lot of things to see and do in Seville but if you have some extra time, this is worth it! Hope we can do another tour with Javier when we return to Seville.

A great experience thanks to a very knowledgeable guide. The place is a gem and we have it practically to ourselves for most of the tour. Mosaics and the amphitheater were highlights for me. Thank you, Patricia.
