Met our tour guide Lita outside of City Expert just south of the cathedral. She checked us in and handed out receivers and earbuds. With a degree in history, she is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the tour. And she talks fast. In fact, everything about the tour is fast. Even though it lasts 2-1/2 hours, there is so much to see that you won’t be able to linger as long as you would like or see everything thing you want to see. It’s an extremely good overview but you may want to go back another time to be thorough. We were short on time and wanted to see as much as possible, so this tour was perfect for us. You’re given 25 minutes to explore the bell tower, which is enough time, but don’t linger too long. The tour concludes in the gardens and you are allowed to stay as long as you like. Definitely enjoyed and would recommend the tour but know that it will be brisk!

We experienced the Cathedral/Giralda and Alcazar tour with Julio. Julio was amazing:. He had incredible knowledge, great communication skills and amazing humor. We learnt, we laughed and we enjoy every moment of the tour. I highly recommend this tour, and if possible, request Julio as your guide!!!

Havier was an excellent, well informed guide who demonstrated his own passion for the history of the Cathedral and Alcazar through his descriptions and stories. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3hrs with him and would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Seville.

We had a wonderful tour of Seville by bike, thanks to Malék, who offered information and insights, with a little humour. He was a friendly and warm guide, and took us through the streets with no incident.

Carolina was fantastic, very detailed information and did not rush through the tour. super happy
