Exceptional. If you have ever watched GoT you will be hooked.
We had a great guide thank you Fernando he really knew the palace well. Beautiful place throughly enjoyed this tour.
My son is a Game of Thrones fan me, not so much so we booked this trip and I was pleasantly surprised. The trip focuses mostly in the Alcazar of Seville - our guide had a tablet with scenes from Game of Thrones which he would show us when we were in the spot that the filming occured. Along with some interesting tidbits about when the cast was filming in the area, our guide was very knowledgable about real world history which made this interesting and worthwhile for me as well. Plan on staying at the Alcazar after the tour as there is plenty more to see and there are no return priviledges with the admission ticket.
Please note that we did not do the optional trip to Osuna.
Our guide was the sweetest thing ever. His english was a little hard to understand, but he was such an excited and enthusiastic tour guide. Although I thought this tour would have more insider information i.e. Jamie Lannister stood here, the Sand Snakes like to visit this tapas bar, etc, it was interesting how our guide compared the history of Dorne to the history of the Alcazar instead. I would have loved some pictures printed from the season in Dorne so we could see exactly where they filmed so I could clearly recreate them for my own person Game of Thrones memories. Overall, the place was beautiful, and it was nice getting there early before the crowd came in.
Our guide was obviously very knowledgable,but unfortunately his accent was so pronounced it was quite difficult to understand his english,a shame because he was so enthusiastic.
We were very excited about the tour based on the description. First, our tour guide was unintelligible - we could not understand most of what he said. Second, his presentation was boring at best. Third, the tour has very little to do with the Game of Thrones. Except for showing us 3 photos on his iPad and a UTube video Game of Thrones in Seville, there was really no value to this tour. We feel misled and cheated. Waste of money. Better to pay the entrance and Audio Guide. We read previous reviews and felt assured that Viator had address the issues with their Vendor about the poor quality of the presentation. DON'T waste money on this tour.
Unfortunately I found this tour extremely disappointing. The tour had very little if anything to do with Game of Thrones and our guide despite his best attempts was extremely hard to understand. The tour had a total of eight people who all seemed to have troubles understanding our guide.
From the get go it seemed very unprofessional with the guide lining up to pay for our tickets rather than having it ready before hand unlike many other tours we'd been on. The tour was mainly about the history of Seville and history of the Alcazar itself although this was also very hard to understand.
Finally, the water fountains which looked to be one of the more interesting parts of the tour was skipped completely. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. I would rather recommend just going to the Alcazar for a self guided tour which is what I ended up doing at the end of this guided tour.
I hope this review helps anyone looking to do the same tour.
The tour was extremely disappointing. Our guide was very nice but unfortunately did not speak English even remotely well. We did not understand most of what he was saying, although he made alot of effort to explain to us. In the end we were just nodding.
Also the tour had barely any game of thrones insight, except for only one site on the tour.
We could have bought the tickets to the castle ourselves and took the audio guide and we probably would have learned more than we did during this tour...
This is very disappointing as I had booked this tour with complete trust in viator.
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry this tour was not what you expected. We are talking to the local provider to ensure their guides are fluent in English, as well as familiar with GOT sites and scenes, so that you can relate what you see with the TV scenes.
