We actually missed our time for the tour. Our fault. However, the personnel at the bull ring were absolutely super. They called our tour guide and arranged to get us admission and audio tour. So helpful.

Javier was personable and interesting to listen to. We enjoyed our time with him getting to know the city of Seville. They did change the tour time to later in the day, which ended up working out fine

Really nice tour of the bull fighting facility but the real interest is the history and details you learn about the art of bullfighting. I'd definitely recommend this tour.

First we had a private tour as it was us two only. The guide was superb and extremely informative.

Really enjoyable trip. Very calming experience. Would recommend.
