Actually, there was not enough people signed up for this tour so I was put into a tour to the ancient Roman city ruin of Italica instead. There were only 3 of us needing audio guide in English, the rest were Spanish speakers. I thought the tour guide handled it very well. It was impressive and I am very thankful for his effort. Italica was an interesting visit. I enjoyed walking inside the amphitheater and its service corridors underneath the brick/stone bleachers. It was also great to see the Roman drainage system from more than 2200 years ago perfectly preserved to this day. Unfortunately, the rest of Italica is barren - remains of knee-high brick walls and mosaic tile floors are pretty much all you see, and it is not easy to visualize how the city used to look like by just walking around the empty city blocks. We also visited a nearby monastery of historical significance from Christianity point of view. A stop at local pub for a shot of sweet orange wine was nice too.
We were very impressed with our tour guide, Miguel. He was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and enthusiastic!
Unfortunately, because of a lot of recent rain and downed trees, the Necropolis was not open the day we went. But Miguel substituted with taking us into the Fortress of the Gate of Seville. We had a full tour of the inside and went to the top and also he drove us around to the back gate, the Door of Cordoba.
We then went to a beautiful hotel that used to be a Palace.
Unbeknownst to Miguel, the Viator tour description was slightly different than his tour, so when we asked about the Santa Maria Church we were supposed to go to, he called his company and confirmed that was in our description. So, he took us to the church, which was his first time there too, and because of his historical background, he explained the highlights of the church.
An additional positive for the tour company, Naturanda Turismo Ambiental, we signed up for a group tour, but my husband and I were the only ones that signed up for the trip but they did not cancel on us...we had a private tour at a group price!
