We booked this tour for the Alcazar since it’s the shortest tour we could find (75 mins) and it was just the right amount of time for us. Our tour guide Javier is an amazing story teller and a history major so he had a lot of information to share and he did so in an engaging and easy to understand way. We were constantly impressed by his knowledge of the palace and he fielded our questions like a pro. Our experience of the Alcazar was greatly enhanced by this tour and we recommend Javier without any reservation.

I went on the tour as a solo traveller. I had trouble finding the guide at the meeting point, even though I did receive a call just 10 mins earlier the meeting time from a staff telling me to look for a pink tshirt guide. I actually arrived right on time as required. I would perhaps appreciate this info to be provided upon booking by email. I contacted the staff when I realised they probably had gone, I was told that the tour had already started so was provided the ticket to enter by myself. Thank god I managed to find the group in the Alcazar. The guide was humourous and we were just a small group of five including the guide. I struggled to hear and understand the guide but the microphone and headset helped a lot. He was prepared with video clips from Game of Thrones and showed us where the scenes were shot. The tour was good but I felt that it ran short. Nonetheless I had fun and was able to spot things I would perhaps not notice if I went by myself.

Our guide, Jesus, was super friendly and incredibly informative - which is what you want from a guide! We definitely came away with a greater understanding of the Real Alcazar. I don't think we'd have enjoyed the visit as much if we hadn't taken this tour and certainly would have missed a lot of the details which Jesus highlighted.
