    4. Seville: 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour

    Start your tour by visiting the Santa Cruz district, the former Jewish quarter, and most picturesque part of the city. Narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses surround you as you wander through centuries-old gardens and relax on beautiful tiled benches. Wander round the small squares lined with orange trees, get lost in the maze of improbably narrow alleys, where ancient houses almost seem to touch, and admire the leafy patios of private mansions through their iron gates.

Registered in 1987 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the cathedral was built as a demonstration of the city’s wealth, and is also the burial site of Christopher Columbus.

    The group was larger than I would have liked and we did more waiting at times but overall it was an excellent experience. Our group had about 26- would prefer groups of no more than 15.
