  • Seville: 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour

    1. 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. The city is full of history and stories, with many old palaces, churches and hidden passageways. The main sights in terms of buildings are the Cathedral and Giralda, formerly a minaret (mosque's tower), the Alcázar and the baroque Hospital of the Venerables (originally a home for retired priests).

Excellent Seville Art & History Tour in Two Hours

We very much enjoyed our tour with your guide Angel on Sunday. I would highly recommend Angel and the tour to any other interested parties. He was informative, educational, fluent in English and gave an enthusiastic, warm description of the art, culture and history of the area. This was an excellent introduction to the city before venturing out on our own. We even stopped with him for a welcome beer in the midday heat (in his time, not ours)!

Reyes (sorry if spelt incorrectly) met us promptly on time at our apartment, and she adjusted our tour when we told her we were visiting the Cathedral/Alcazar later that day. She was also very happy to take photos of our group, which was greatly appreciated. She was knowledgeable and friendly, and walked at a great pace for our group.

Eduardo was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. His English was perfect, and we had a fabulous experience. Bravo again to Get Your Guides local tours. You made Seville come alive!
