This tour included Santa Cruz neighbourhood, Real Alcazar and Seville Cathedral which lasted approx. 3 hours. Our guide Melissa was well informed and an excellent communicator and added greatly to our tour. As our time was limited we felt it was a good choice to pay extra for a "skip the line" ticket. It was fun and informative.

A massive thank you to Melissa who was fun, charismatic and knew her stuff! The tour was interesting and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Melissa is an asset to your company - she is as beautiful a person inside as she is outside, the Spanish Celine Dion! Thanks for a fab day!

Our guide Antonio was funny and informative. We saw all of the highlights of the quaint neighborhood of Santa Cruz and had in depth tours of both the Real Alcazar and the Cathedral. We weren't rushed from one attraction to another.

I can not rave enough about Melissa’s tour of Alcazar and the cathedral. Though we were quite a large group, she ensure that everyone heard all the amazing and interesting information that she had to share. She covered history, art, architecture, and local lore. She made us feel like sharing her knowledge was super fun for her- she even did an impromptu flamenco dance. At the end of the cathedral tour, we couldn’t climb the tower ( though it is included) because we were exhausted from absorbing everything and yet, I would do it again in a heartbeat. Do thus and you will be very full. Hope you get Melissa!

A superb tour led by a wonderful guide. The delivery of information was excellent and the guide kept everyone involved and informed. The Cathedral and the Palace were wonderful places to visit. Great tour.

Guide (Lola) knew her stuff but her English was not good enough to wholly understand her commentary. She was also quite disorganised and the tour met at 10.45 but did not start until 11.30.

On a recent visit to the Algarve region of Portugal, friends and I decided to drive to Seville for two nights. With a bit of limited time, we of course wanted to see the Real Alcazar and the Cathedral. Very often this can be done with buying tickets/waiting in lines, with some sort of audio tour that you can rent. During my visit (the end of August), it did not seem the lines were that long for either site, however, I was very impressed with my tour. Our tour guide was Lola and native of Seville and the tour started out near the Christopher Columbus monument and to my surprise include a very information walking tour of Santa Cruz, the old Jewish Quarter of Seville. Lola was down to earth and very informative during this walking tour. When that was finished we indeed skipped the line to the Alcazar, and again having a personal guide was much better than an audio headset. I felt I would have missed out on the history and architectural highlights with just an audio guide. After the Alcazar, it was onto the Cathedral, again with a personal narrative with highlights of the Cathedral and the rich history of Seville. I would say the entire tour lasted about 3 hours, and certainly was worth the cost for the benefit and the outstanding guide we had. I would say there were about 18 of use on the tour, and she was cognizant of the group and keeping them together.

The cathedral in Seville is stunning! Plan on staying well past the end of your tour as there is so much to see. The Alcazar is pretty, but doesn’t hold a candle to the Alcazar in Córdoba.

This is a must especially in the heat as the queues are extremely long. Our guide for the trip was excellent. At the end of the trip which lasts about 3 hours, we followed several people out of the room and ended up walked the the top of the cathedral to the bell tower. We would not advise this last part if you are disabled or have difficulty walking as it is a long walk up. If no problem, well worth doing.

We had an awesome guide at the Cathedral and the Alcazar....She was funny, interesting and informative. Told us some insider tips about the places we saw which made it lots of fun!

There is so much detail in and history of the Alcazar and Cathedral that we really appreciated taking the guided tour, rather than exploring it alone for the first time. Our guide had such a positive energy, always smiling- captivating and intelligent. She showed interest in each of the group members and give helpful tips for our stay in Seville. Being able to skip the lines was a big plus, especially if your time in the city is limited. There was free time after the tour to wander through the Cathedral at your own pace and climb the Tower of Giralda. The views from the tower are amazing ! Definitely worth the trip up. Wonderful tour, we would recommend! .

Well run tour with engaging and informative guide Melissa. This was an English only tour and our whole family 2 adults, 2 children 16 and 10 had a great time. Her English was perfect and despite the crowds of Holy Week Melissa kept things moving and was able to convey a lot of interesting information in a limited amount of time. The tour outfit was very professional and accommodating with good quality headsets. Highly recommended.

Paqui was a fabulous tour guide with excellent interpersonal skills. Very impressed with her knowledge of history and perfect communication of the facts. Also, very funny and a joy to be with. The Alcazar and Jewish Quarter were very moving - my ancestors come from this region. Saw the Mesquita the day before on your other tour. Konnections is a great company. Keep it up. The sites were awe-inspiring.
