The organization was perfect. Departure from the hotel as promised and on time. Unfortunately the bus had a technical breakdown en route which forced us to wait an hour for a replacement bus and driver. The guide was reassuring; our 4 hour visit to Seville was holding up anyway. The city tour started with the guide; then free time.. What we liked..

Amazing experience. We were 4 adults and 4 kids btw 4 and 6 years old, we were very late to the activity, but they were kind enough to let us in. Service, hospitality was great.we had snacks, cheese and portugues chorizo wich is always tasty, we had the opportunity to swim, kids love that. It was amazing!!!!!

Cristina was an excellent tour guide. She was well spoken and was a joy to interact with. Understood that this tour was a trip to experience Sevilla and were given ample to time to tour about on our own. Highly recommend this tour.

Had a very interesting tour of the salt mine. We had a private tour (it was a quiet period), so we had plenty of time to view everything quietly and there was enough time to ask questions.

It was very simple and easy. The men that served us were nice. Such a fun experience me and my partner enjoyed the 22 different games
