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!

A wonderful seamless and stress free experience Vanda our guide was great. She was very considerate and comfortable to be with Extremely knowledgeable and a fountain of information Not one moment was boring She took us all around the important historical sites and gave us our space and time to explore too She was available if we needed any information We loved her and wish we had more time to do more tours with her We wish her the best and our extremely happy with her service

Maravilhoso. Quero ressaltar o papel da motorista e guia Vanda. Atenciosa, bom papo, bom humor e muito educada. Entregou mais que o esperado. Recomendação fortíssima.
