José Alfonso M.

Sevilla, Spain

As a historian I like to show the monuments of the city but I especially enjoy talking about our local culture.

This is Sevilla, so we can talk about soccer, tapas, processions, flamenco, and of course, our wines!

I like to visit places that normally are not included in the traditional visitor's circuit. Let me take you to the charming market of Feria Street, a cloister convent where to eat a sweet. The views from the other side of the river are beautiful, specially if you go during the "blue hour".

I love to travel all the time. I have been in UK, France, Italy, Egypt, Frech Polynesia, India, Madison Wisconsin, New York City, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Croatia, Portugal, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Cerdeña, Córcega, Sicily, Ireland, Canada, . . .

I got married in 2006 and have two beautiful princesses, Elsa (2012) and Emma (2017).

History and music are an important part of my life. I am lucky to live in Sevilla but really lucky because my job it is to show you not only the monuments , the gastronomy but specially the soul of Sevilla.

Forget about the time, we need no maps, just enjoy as we are in Sevilla!

A Recent Review of this guide

Our tour with Alfonso was fabulous! He was knowledgeable, fun and engaging. We learned not only about the history and significance of the sites we visited, but Alfonso also engaged us with stories and tidbits of present day Sevillian culture. Our girls (ages 12 and 14) also enjoyed the tour and thought he was great. We highly recommend this tour with Alfonso as a great way to get to know some of Sevilla's most notable sites.
