We had a fantastic boat trip down the Guadalquivir giving you a very different view of Seville and Triana. Our guide was really knowledgable and friendly, and despite not being fluent in English he tried very hard to explain every detail to us in English (assuming it’s my fault for booking a Spanish speaking tour). Really would recommend as it’s a fantastic evening activity and the sunset views are just spectacular.

A very relaxing experience with wonderful views. An activity different from the usual way of visiting the city. Simply lovely. Also very good treatment and quite comfortable everything.

Really peaceful and enjoyable. Recommended. Tapas not so much but a couple of really cold beers each, Friendly guide with limited English but he did well.

The most relaxed way to enjoy the beautiful city of Seville -totally recommend

Relaxed, comfortable, informative overall an excellent experience. Thank you
