I am Carmen from Seville. Ring a bell? But now I'm a guide, and perhaps not just any other guide, or what do you think?.
Yes, I used to roll cigars, remember? But those days are gone and now I will not even dare have your eyes roll, but just to admire and gaze at the full beauty of my Seville, the city where I was born, the city I love and I will make you love too.
The old tobacco Factory? Funny, I never left it, since it was then turned into a University, and there I ended up taking my BA in English language.
And true to my gypsy roots, I also travelled the world a bit and even lived in England for five years
And back to my city, I have to say that it is not just the home of the world's largest Gothic cathedral or of one of the most exquisite arabesque palaces in Western Europe, but it is also the city of Carmen: full of life, energy, passion, exoticism and light.
The light I would like to use to colour your experience of Seville, with interesting anecdotes, lots of humor, wit and good conversation. Conventional tours are not my style.
In the past as we strolled along the Guadalquivir River:
"Oh Merimé, how sweet of you to hum those seguidillas for me. Such beautiful music!"
But what about the "manzanillas"? You will now ask -in the present. Oh! those I would like to drink with you my dear guest".
Leave Carmen to guide you at her pace and her own way!
I have been working as a guide for twenty years and after that accumulated experience, I have realized that the secret of my success is enjoying my tours.
I am not a conventional guide and therefore neither are my tours. To discover Seville doesn't have to mean running from monument to monument cramming your head with facts, but to be able to enjoy the full experience of it, since the city opens to a whole diversity of activities.
Besides, same as the rest of my colleagues, I can also guarantee:

A Recent Review of this guide
Had a lovely day exploring the white villages - drive to Zahara de la Sierra and Ronda from Seville was comfortable and scenic (taking you through the hills of Andalusia) and we found the tour to be a good mix of getting out and exploring these two villages without feeling overwhelmed by trying to see too many places in one day. Carmen was generous in sharing her knowledge of the area while also allowing us time and space to explore on our own - a nice change of pace from the city of Seville!
