For my parents' 50th anniversary, we thought of a horse-drawn carriage ride, because my father is fond of horses. And, it has been the best experience they have had, the boy was concerned at all times about their experience, explaining things about Seville and the horses. He took photos of them in the Plaza de España, beautiful... And, best of all, their happy faces when we picked them up at the cathedral.

The service was good - the driver agreed to pick us up at our apartment which was a bit out of the way and the tour was great, seeing the sights at a nice slow pace. His English wasn't great but we understood what he was telling us about landmarks. Would recommend for a memorable and relaxing sightseeing trip.

Best experience! I always wanted to ride on a carriage and the fact that it was in Spain made it so much more romantic. Best service! I recommend it. ❤️❤️

Had a great tour round Seville, a little hiccup on the pickup, but the driver worked very hard to pick us up ( due to filming in the town centre)

We received some friends who wanted to get to know the city and they loved it. We recommend the experience.
