What people are saying about Alcázar of Seville

Overall rating

4.6
(28,010 reviews)

The tour itself was very nice. Our guide, Anaïs, was knowledgeable and friendly. We finished at the entrance in the gardens of Real Alcazar and were able to take a stroll at our own pace after the tour. In my opinion the tour could be split in two: church+Giralda tower and separately the Real Alcazar. As it is it takes roughly 3 hours which is a bit on the long side to stand up for so long and listen/see things.

Ishmael was an outstanding guide. He provided lots of unbiased info, kept the group moving along in time, and provided sufficient breaks. It does sometimes go a bit fast to catch everything being said but that sent a problem for me.

Honestly one of the best tours I've ever been on, simply for the fact that Manuel was so incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Seville for the first time

Great tour. The guide Javier was very knowledgeable and lovely. It was definitely worth the visit. Alcazar and the gardens are very impressive so we're glad we got to see it when in Seville

Pretty straight forward. Were able to skip the line and roam freely inside and it’s just a euro more expensive than on the website
