  • The cathedral was beautiful and we booked a tour in English. Thee guide's accent was so strong none of us we were a group of10 friends/ family could understand much of what she said. I didn't get her name. There was a lot of confusion about purchasing tickets. No one explained that students had free admission and the kids that didn't have school ID's had to pay. Would have brought the id's had I known. All in all could have done just as well, or maybe better w/ a guide book.

  • Definitely worth taking a tour of the cathedral - skip the queues and learn about things you might otherwise miss! I found the ear-piece commentary a bit too loud and a little uncomfortable. The climb up the Giralda tour is one of those things you have to do - but wouldnt recommend if youre unfit!

  • I would rate this no stars if i could. Our tour was supposed to start at 2:30 pm, but didn't start until 3:06 pm. A representative from the tour group was at the meeting place to check our vouchers at 2:30 but didn't say a word about why we were waiting. Apparently we were waiting for the tour guide.
    The tour was cut short at 4:00. Cathedral employees said we had to leave at 4:00 and escorted everyone out. Our tour guide said the Cathedral was supposed to be open until 5:00 and didn't understand why we had to leave early. The tour was supposed to include going to the top of the Giralda Tower, which was the main reason we took the tour, but because the Cathedral closed early we were unable to do that. Lastly, the tour guide was impossible to understand. I actually felt sorry for her. She does not have the english speaking skills to conduct tours. This was the worse tour experience we had while in Spain. Waste of time and money.

  • AVOID
    Guide kept telling us her English is awful which was great since we booked an English tour for a reason... Company unorganized;when we went to see the tower it was closed and they said it wasn't their problem... the tower was the main reason we booked the tour... no refund... pure robbery

  • NO LINES!!! Walked right in. Well worth it.

  • Tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Enjoyed your!

  • It's a good tour but I was spoiled by the amazing guide I'd had for the Alcazar tour in the morning that I felt the tour guide for this tour was a bit flat. The Cathedral was amazing and a must see and the views from Giralda tower were well worth the climb.

  • Very interesting history. I recommend the Giralda Tower option.

  • I can't recommend this tour. Never before have i booked a tour that didn't include the entry ticket for the venue. After reading the fine print and realising this was the case, I chalked this up to paying 50 to skip the queue and at least the tour will provide insights - but not really. we spent 30 minutes sorting the administration and then in a short queue before an abbreviated version of the cathedral and then left to our own devices to explore the tower and the rest of the cathedral on our own. Big lesson to book well ahead to visit these sites independently and use the audio guide

  • This was an informative tour and we felt we covered all the high lights and more. DO NOT just look around and try to admire all that you see. You will get much more out of your visit with a tour!
