Our guide Rosa was excellent in telling us the history of the Alcazar of Seville. She also gave a lot of information about the structure and architecture of the building. For those who watched GoT, she made references to the scenes in series as well. We enjoyed the tour very much.

Beautiful place and great guide. However, it would be much better if the tour was in one language only - even though the guide does a great job, it gets too long and boring having to wait for everything to be said in both English and Spanish. In saying that, taking a tour is really worth it if only to skip the long, long line.

Great tour

This tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide was great and we enjoyed the early appointment as it was a bit cooler than later in the day and also beat the crowds. We just did the Alcazar tour so when we go back we will book the same company for the Cathedral tour. All in all a great experience that we would highly recommend!
