Ismael our guide was the best , knowledgeable, funniest and informative guide in the world !! He organized everything semeasly the lines, the walks, the ticketing, incredible fast. We don’t wait for a second in line . I would definitely recommend any excursion with him and definitely choose him again !

The tour was excellent and our guide Ismael was simply amazing. Very knowledgeable and charismatic, he kept our attention for 3.5 hours - not an easy task! All the sites were beautiful, but thanks to this we definitely got to know them better and it made the whole experience more interesting.

75 minute long tour which was just about right. The only criticism I had relates to the meeting point. The map is wholly inaccurate and we could not find the Information point. Thankfully the tour operator phoned us and guided us to the right place. This also happened with the Cathedral tour

For those who love to be independent and freely see the attractions, purchasing a simple entrance is worth it. I had downloaded an app and, where I wanted to know more, I used this or read the illustrations on the spot.

This is a great option specially that the website of Royal alcazar seville was not working properly. Once ticket was generated in the app. No encountered problems when we shown it to them.
