I wanted to comunicate myself with everybody, so at the age of 6 I started to learn English on my own, with a lot of effort and passion (it was hard, no internet access, only radio music, some records, and a good dictionary) and I did it! Later on I continued with the German and the Italian, so more choices to share everything with a wide range of people :-).
I studied in the University of Seville, and I was living in Germany, England and Italy for a while, in order to learn about different cultures, traditions and a wider perpective of understanding people and life, but of course I learnt much more about myself and about what is actually important.
I'm licensed tour guide since the year 1999, so a long experience, with out losing the passion. I can show you from the out of the beaten track of the city tour to the most monument areas.
I'm entitteled to skip lines, to take benefit of your time while in the city, to give you the best tips to take benefit of your time in Seville, and where the freshst fish is served today.
I do offer taylor made tours and excursions, I m not only specialist in families with children as I have two little ones (and I know how hard (and great) can be to travel with them), but also in experienced travellers that want to go beyond the travel books.

A Recent Review of this guide
Susana guided me and my two kids aged 12 and 15 through Sevilla and we absolutely LOVED her. She was interesting, knowledgeable, friendly, funny and clearly passionate about her city, it diverse culture and history. She made her knowledge accessible and fun for my kids and was always willing to answer questions. This is one of the best tours we have done with Tours by Locals: Seville really is a hidden gem and we loved it - even more so after this tour! Highly recommended.
