Seville: Private 2-Hour Walking Tour
- Transportation included
- Duration: 2.5 hours
- Private group
Per group up to 8
members of our group used both the 24 hour and 48 hour tickets. The commentary on the tour was rather disappointing but everything was very clear and the stops clearly announced (contrary to some reviews I read) The 4 walking talks could not be done on the 24 hour but we did 3 of them on the 48 and they were outstanding - we chose not to do the Magellan. Our 3 guides were absolutely outstanding - Veronica dealt with a very large group of both Spanish and English speakers with great ease, Raphael took just the 6 of us and was tremendous and Alexandro took a small English speaking group superbly. These 3 walks alone were worth the money. However, we also used the free or reduced entrance to several sites and had our free beer in the market. Without doubt the 48 hour ticket was incredible value.
It was a good tour and well worth undertaking. There was free WIFI on the bus but we did not realise it until we left as we had not read the small print and there were not signs on the bus to inform you. Connecting the earphones provided for the tour to be conducted in your language was easy but there were no signs/instructions to tell you which channel to select. However, we would recommend that this tour is one of the first things you do if you are there for a few days as it will orientate you to the many wonderful sights. Although the bus passes the Placa D'Espania you really need to get off and explore it as it looks nothing from the bus viewpoint. On the other side it is indeed remarkable.
The bus route is super and the stops very clear, but sadly the recorded commentary was rather superficial. However the associated walking tours were absolutely superb with Veronica, Raphael and Alexandro all brilliant guides on their respective walks - both knowledgeable and great fun. The reduced and free entries added make this a great value
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.
The bus starting point was easy to find. Great route that gives a thorough overview of the city past and present. Veronica was one of the guides on the bus. She was very friendly and suggested a flamenco show that turned out to the best I've seen. Would highly recommend this activity.
