The magical city of Silves is an enchanting example of the Arab influence that was present in its history and in its architecture, clearly evident due to the most important castle in the Algarve.

I couldn’t recommend this private tour to Seville enough! Vanda picked us up from our hotel early in the morning and took us straight to Seville and gave us some background on the history of Seville along with some information on the best places to go visit in terms of food/shopping and culture. Vanda was so nice and flexible with us and accompanied us at the first stop and showed us where to go, she then let us proceed to tour around ourselves before pickup time which was nice to have our own freedom to explore the city. Vanda was extremely helpful and kind and I could not recommend this tour enough!

Our private trip to Seville with Vanda was very enjoyable. We had a spacious van to ourselves and it was a much better alternative than going on a bus tour. Vanda catered to our needs, provided a lot of great historical information as well as useful tips. Although she didn't accompany us on the tour of the monuments, she provided detailed information leading up to it and was flexible on the pick up points and pick up time, allowing us to fully customize our experience and make the day a unique experience for my family. Seville is beautiful, we will definitely be spending more time there in the future!

This was a fantastic day trip to Seville! We were picked up from the hotel early in the morning and dropped there in the evening. Our tour guide Vanda made sure we were looked after really well during the entire duration of the trip and was very knowledgeable too. She informed us about where to go, how much time to spend at places in Seville. There was fantastic communication at every step of the way. Would highly recommend do this day trip of you fancy something different on the Algarve coast.

Excellent trip to Seville. Our guide was Exceptionally helpful and pleasant and pointed us in the direction of all the key places of interest. Well worth a visit.
