Excellent ! I was booking for 4 people in October, and we were only the 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens, enjoying Segway for the first time. We had Amandine, driving us through Sevilla and its history in French as requested while booking. Very nice and interesting coach. Perfect fit with the teens. Everybody loved the tour and wants to do it again. Merci Amandine ;-) Bon retour en France!

We were in a small group. Everyone wore masks . We had our temperature taken at the entrance of both the Alcazar and the Cathedral. I was the only person in our group who continued on to the Cathedral. I felt very safe the whole time.

We had a great time here! A very relaxed way to see the city of Sevilla. I would recommend this place to everybody!
