A magnificent building full of wonderful sights and treasures - superb

We found the “skip the queue” ticket unnecessary as there was no queue; there may have been one at the other door however. The Cathedral was vast and although there were many people inside, it was very easy to walk round without difficulty and it was absolutely full of wonderfully coloured windows, treasures, paintings, carvings, statues, decorated tombs and chapels - mind blowing! There was organ music playing some of the time, adding to the experience and although we spent more than three hours looking around, there was still so much to see, we shall have to make another trip to Seville to be sure of seeing it all!

Seville Cathedral and Giralda: Skip-the-Line Ticket Reviewed by

This tour is a must do when visiting Seville. Great guide

This tour is great value for money - starts at 11 with the Cathedral finishes at 2 in the palace gardens- short break in the middle to climb the bell tower if you wish- 65 ramps!! Our guide was great - very knowledgeable and friendly with a good sense of humour. Sound system/ ear piece works well. No queues if you join this tour - it’s well worth it!

Largest gothic Cathedral on Earth+Great Palace

Great tour with knowledgeable guide. The cathedral and Giralda are massive architectural achievements. Inside you´ll see great works art and receive a lot of information about the mourish times and the conquest(invasion) of America. The Alcazar featured in some important production of cinema and television, such as Game of Thrones.

Great tours with Lorena- plus skip the line!

Very knowledgeable and humorous tour. Lorena was great fun and explained a lot. Answered all questions well. The tour skips the public lines for the cathedral, going through a separate entrance. Also included walking up the Giralda tower via ramps (no stairs in the tower until the top top), and the Alcázar tour was great as well.

Carmen was an excellent, knowledgeable and very engaging guide!

Could not recommend this tour highly enough! Carmen was extremely knowledgeable, very engaging and easy to understand. She gave plenty of context to the history and added humour to the stories she told. The group size was manageable and the audio equipment was very clear. This tour is a must do when in Seville!
