“Not to miss” experience for my wife and I

Carlos was very knowledgeable, personable, spoke excellent English, an excellent photographer, and did all our expectations and more. He even directed us to a pizza place for lunch at the end of our tour, which I had wanted to find. Thanks for a fun and enjoyable morning. We even enjoyed you humor.
Incredible and personable tour experience
Jacob_B, 27-07-2022
My wife and I had an absolutely incredible time with Fernando. Words can’t describe how pleased we were with this tour. Fernando was a walking encyclopedia about the history of Sevilla and you could hear in his voice his passion for the city as he guided us around major landmarks and hidden gems. He was also very attentive and responsive to our needs regarding shade (definitely necessary during this summer heatwave), bathrooms, and local shopping. We would 100% recommend this tour to family, friends, and strangers.
