María R.

Seville, Spain

NATIVE sevillana: born, bred, educated and based in Seville.

Since I was 5 years old my dad used to take me on long walks around the city explaining me the history, leyends and traditions of Seville. Soon I decided I wanted to do the same with others and that's why I drove my education to, first, Humanities -a 5-year degree combining history, art, languages, literature, anthropology, etc- to acquire the knowledge and later to learn how to communicate and work for people.

I have experience in guiding small groups, private tours for couples and families in Seville and nearby cities and small villages for luxury travel agencies. I also have experience as tour manager leading small-group boutique escorted tours all over Spain and Portugal.

I like showing my hometown as if I was with a friend who's visiting, covering every aspect of it. Seville wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for its people, our lifestyle, our local traditions, our mentality, our food, our politics even! I like to keep a balance between classic highlights and hidden gems of Seville that probably won't be mentioned in your guidebook. If you want to experience what Seville is really about, if you want to explore some other areas off the beaten path, come in and ask me! I'm here to make you have a great longlasting memory of your holidays :-)

** Should you be interested in a tailor-made experience, I'm here for you!
