    Train ride was great. Our tour guide Melissa was amazing. Full of knowledge and great energy!! I wish they tour included more sites.

    Didn't specify before hand that on top of printing out the voucher we had to hunt for Julie Travel in Madrid to exchange for the tickets day in advance, furthermore wasted more time waiting for pick up at Seville train station as the Madrid tour operator didn't communicate with Seville's side, had to wait in front of the tourist information centre at Seville's train station for ages. The tour is very rush and after visiting plaza espania during midtour the operator detour to a hotel to pick more people up. No explanation, not guided, poor value for money. Basically it is just an overprice return train ticket from Madrid to Seville.

    The guide made this experience less enjoyable. She knew a few facts but she kept repeating them as if they were new and interesting. She was also bossy. She told one participant to stop taking pictures so they could keep up and hear what she was saying. They preferred to stay back and take pictures but she kept reprimanding them. It was very awkward and totally unnecessary. If we had a different guide, I bet this is a wonderful tour. The sites are beautiful.

    The tour operator failed to meet the train at Seville Station. The local telephone number failed to connect so Madrid was called. A guide was found and the tour proceeded, with the addition of a free river cruise. An interesting day with the tour operator doing his best to rectify matters to the best of his ability. Perhaps being the only 2 persons who showed up had something to do with the dis-organisation.
    The young guide tried very hard to converse with us in the English language, but he was very earnestly attempting to become more proficient, given time.

    A short two hour walking tour did not justify the cost - when we could have easily booked our own train trip. The tour guide was late in meeting us at the Saville train station - which lead to some confusion.

    It's not so clear in the description that you will pretty much be left in Seville to wander around for 6 hours after the initial ~2hr walking tour, so be prepared and get a good map as Seville city center is very disorienting.
    I was the only person on this tour and arrived by train (note it usually leaves about 5 mins before the set time!) When I arrived I was driven by a nice driver to the city center where I was pointed at to the meeting point for the walking tour at 11am. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The tour is a little short and only visited the Palace (pay your own) Jewish Quarter and the Cathedral. There are many many other nice places to visit in Seville for the remaining hours, including Plaza de Espana, the Bullring. The train station is a walkable distance (about 1 km) from the center to catch the fast train back to Madrid.
    Another note is that you will need to go to collect your train tickets at a travel agency a day or 2 before the tour - this is not obvious in the Viator description. Also the Atocha train station is massive and you need to go to the Renfre departures section, not the same as the Metro station so give your self plenty of time to get there. I almost missed that 7:30am train in the morning.

    This was great. Logistics were incredibly easy and smooth and our guide, Angel, was GREAT. At first his accent was heavy for us but our ear tuned quickly. He is extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to give us local insight. This was expensive but well worth it!

    Do not buy this tour, it is dreadful. We didn't get anything that was promised in the advertisement.Had to pay for additional tickets to get into the only 2 places that the tour guide took us to. Tour guide dumped us after 2 hours and left us on our own with 7 hours to kill before our train back to Madrid. Very, very bad value.

    Good. Confused with a meeting point at Seville. So that instructions are not enough

    This was a great tour. We had to catch the train at 6.30 am in Madrid and arrived at Seville at 9.15 and went to a hotel near the station for the start of the tour. Our tour guide was very good and we enjoyed walking through the Jewish quarter (Santa Cruz). We had a tour through the Cathedral and then surprisingly the tour ended. We were stranded in the middle of Seville at lunchtime with no idea where we were but managed to eventually find a tourist information centre (not an easy task) and get a map. We had wanted to visit the Royal Palace (Real Alcazar) which we did. At the end of our tour our guide gave us various options to fill in the rest of the day but didn't mention the Alcazar which was on our wish list. He also pointed in the general direction of how to get to various places like the river but that proved not to be easy without a map. Our train back to Seville did not leave until 7.15 pm so we had plenty of free time in Seville but without a map were unsure of how best to use that time.
