Overall rating

4.1 / 5

We booked a day trip to Seville from the Algarve. Jorge was an outstanding tour guide & he made the day truly memorable. Incredibly professional and always went out of his way to accommodate us (providing water, breaks, recommendations, bridging the language). Jorge is brimming with knowledge, & his enthusiasm for the city is infectious as he guides you through the streets & landmarks! An amazing photographer too - truly unique that he takes professional photos for you, capturing memories from your trip. Without him, we wouldn't have gotten to experience Seville to the fullest, in just a day alone!

It was nice and therapeutic! Booking was very easy and straightforward. Bear in mind queues can get quite long. Only downside were the plastic chairs - could potentially be a hazard?

It is an ideal way to acclimatise to a city. We always do a complete circuit first, then go to the most stand out location and perhaps somewhere that is a distance from our hotel.

Everything was perfect. I recommend going towards the end of the day to see the sunset! Get there 20 minutes earlier to get a good spot
