A beautiful city - we were overwhelmed. There are so many sights that the short time of 4 hours to visit was simply not enough. In addition, if you plan to visit the Cathedral and Alcazar on the same day, it's just too much. Unfortunately, you spend more time overall on the bus ride. Our tour guide was in English and German - a big plus. To get a first impression of this city, this short excursion may suffice. You should plan three days to get to know the city better with its small streets, great bars and so many unique buildings. We will do that for sure!

This was a really interesting tour. So glad we did it. It’s fairly new, they started in 2019, then Covid hit which impacted them. Probably why it is a little pricey today $25usd, trying to make up for lost funds. Our tour guide Alex, was really good and knew his stuff. We would highly recommend this activity to all ages.

For the money, this is just amazing. Don't get on the boat. - waste of time. Better take a walk in beautiful Seville. extra hour

What a fun experience- great to see the nature and other parts of the Algarve. Great lunch! Great tour guide!

A lovely trip in a great location. Excellent wines. Remember your costume!
