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

This guide consistently receives five stars which is no surprise. We would rate Jose Alfonso (aka Sam) six stars if possible; he possesses an incredible knowledge base of Spanish history, culture, and the arts. After four hours my husband and I were worn out and totally wowed. However, in addition to a command of historical and current facts, events and personalities, Jose is extremely gracious, warm and full of life - attributes hard to measure but so important to a special day.
