This tour was advertised as spanish/english guided tour and it truly was a multilingual tour (5 different languages). I found this to be extremely annoying and confusing. Felt bad for the guide who had to translate the same thing 5 times. The city guide was not as good translating and sometimes she will speak only in one language and left the others guessing. Didn't enjoy the actual tour because of this. I'm sure there were multiple things that didn't get transated to all languages.
We took the Seville Day Trip from Malaga and had a wonderful time visiting the Seville City. My family really likes Seville and hoped that they can spend more time in staying there. They admire the Architecture and the Cathedral very much and the city has a lot of history.
Although Seville is a great place to visit as a tourist, the tour operator Julia Travels does a horrible job. They just basically arrange for the bus to take you to Seville where a completely different tour operator gives you the tour, so there is always a bit of confusion during the hand off. Our bus and our tour in the Cathedral was in three languages. As you can imagine we wasted a lot of time waiting for the guide to speak in three languages. Why can't they just divide the tours by language? My recommendation: Definitely go to Seville, but with a different tour company.
Overall, this was a great tour, if a little rushed. I would have liked to have had more time at the Plaza Espana, but I'm still pleased with it as it saved me the trouble of renting a car and getting there myself. Well organized and informative.
We would like to thank your tour leader Jean Pierre, regret we missed his surname, for a beautiful tour of the unforgettable Seville and it's majestic Cathedral. It was a great experience and at the same time it was very educational. A special thank you to Maria, the local tour leader who took us around the cathedral. For those who love history and architecture, once again Seville is the city not to miss. We were taken on a tour of the river Guadalquivir to see the Golden Tower and other historical sites along the river bank. Well done and thank you Jean Pierre.
This trip was interesting, but all we really saw was the old town, a sqare and the cathderal. If you like cathedral's, then take this trip. You could also take the little boat trip, which was interesting. A lot crammed into one day.
If you take this excursion, recognize that you are committing to a 12 hour day of which only 5 are in Seville and only 2 of those with a guide for the cathedral and the magnificent Plaza de Espagna from Seville's 1929 world's fair. The guide will try to upsell you a 1 hour boat ride. Otherwise you're on your own to wander. Disappointing given the architectural beauty of this city which the tour should have included. All in all, poor value.
This tour should have separated tourists into languages.There were two buses and this could have been run more smoothly. We had to suffer through four languages for the entire tour. It was discovered towards the end, our guide only had to use two languages. The headsets were painful and the guide did not make sure the whole group was together before moving on, very stressful.
Awful. The guide on the bus was rude and unhelpful and disengaged. The time we spent in Seville was insufficient. We lost a lots of precious time waiting for guides to speak in 4 languages. Julia Travel run rubbish tours and are very unprofessional. Should not really be allowed to advertise here.
The guided walking tour of Seville was excellent, but when the tour with the local guide ended our travelling guide had the bus drop us off towards the city centre and we walked for at least 15 - 20 min. to be released for lunch and shopping. He pointed the group another block or two along our route for restaurants and shopping, with instructions when to return to the bus at the original bus drop-off point. Fortunately, my wife and I had spotted a restaurant shortly after the walk began and we returned to it to enjoy an excellent lunch I have no idea how others fared.
The total length of the tour from Malaga was more than 11 hours I believe the tour should have been reduced by at least two unproductive hours, enabling a more leisurely evening back in Malaga.
