After 27 years of experience as a local guide in Sevilla, I would be delighted to show you my home city.
Born, raised and educated in Sevilla, I truly love my city- something which I think comes across when I'm talking with my visitors, who get from me the best tips to find those tapas places where we locals go, the most authentic music places and, above all, they see with me the Sevilla that I would show to my best friend.
And what to say about Sevilla?
I understand your will to come to this wonderful city, with it's beautiful light, it's blue sky, it's orange trees, it's amazing monuments and it's people result of the many visitors that we had in 3000 years of History ( Phoenicians, Cartaguinians, Romans, Visogoths, Moslems. . . even the Vikings were here)
As an Historian I'm very passionate about Art, but my tours range over many topics. You can visit the ' highlights ', such as the Cathedral an the Alcázar, and combine with other themes like tapas, opera or cinema. I will also take you out of the city to visit some of the attractions in the Province of Sevilla- such as the Roman city of Italica or Carmona.
Personally I'm very passionate about music, I used to play in a band (back in the day) and according to my visitors a special sense of humor. . . I also love photography so, if you wish, I will be taken some pictures of you from your visit in Sevilla and sends them to you as a keepsake at no extra cost.

A Recent Review of this guide
Notre guide était Carlos Rodriguez Silva. Nous avons apprécié sa très bonne connaissance de Séville, sa culture, sa disponibilité, sa bonne humeur et son humour. Etant accompagnés de 2 enfants ( 10 et 11 ans), il a très bien su se mettre à leur portée lorsqu'ils manifestaient de l'intérêt et sinon, les laisser "gambader" en les surveillant d'un œil.
