There are many, many groups meeting at the "meeting point". I arrived 25 minutes early, looked for the group, asked personnel & other group guides but never did find my group. Turns out they met by where the buses are. I had trouble getting through to customer service until the nice fellow at the information booth gave me a different number. I got through on that number & thanks to Alicia of My Top Tours was able to get my ticket & meet up with the tour already underway. Alhambra is beautiful & our guide, Sherif, was extremely knowledgeable & a very nice guy.

Nice experience. We had a really nice guide. If you're looking for a ton of information and a "formal" tour, then I would choose something else. He pointed out landmarks and told us about the city, but the tour did not include history, details, a lot of information, etc. But we had a lot of fun, I would definitely recommend.

Excellent instructor, good cquipment . Children 8 and 15 enjoyed the visit as did the 80 year old grandfather who did not quite have the energy required --5 star .

Soo fun! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Seville. The dance instructor was so sweet and made it fun for everyone during the class.

The bus trip provides a good starting point for exploring Seville. The free walking tour was well worth doing.
