Seville, Spain

27 years of EXPERIENCE in different tourism related companies together with my 20 years of experience working as LICENSED OFFICIAL TOUR GUIDE (not a temporary license) as a Free Lance in the city of Seville with a top level ENGLISH LANGUAGE, a very good KNOWLEDGE of the history and traditions of Seville and a very good sens of humour and flexibility, permit me to offer nowadays the BEST TOURS of this very city.

Pls , LOOK MY NUMBERS IN THIS SITE . THEY ARE THE BEST GUARANTEE FOR YOU TO HAVE THE GREATEST EXPERIENCE IN MY HOMETOWN .
MORE THAN 400 TOURS AND MORE THAN 230 REVIEWS WITH 99, 8 % RATED WITH 5 STARS !! AT THE BEGINING OF 2018
BEST IN ANDALUCIA THANKS YOUR CONFIDENCE !

AUTHENTIC NATIVE (Sevillano). I consider ESSENTIAL being native in this Job because I have not only the knowledge because of my academic training, the several exams I must pass to get the licence as Official tour Guide , a constant updating , but also the LOVE to the city where I was born and live my whole life , where my relatives live, where in resume thousands of local histories live in my mind.

SKIP THE LINES WITH ME.
If you want to do an agile tour, don't wait long lines.

Obviously, I can't write here every detail of the content of a rich tour like the ones I offer you as you must take into account that you're going to be with a LICENSED OFFICIAL TOUR GUIDE who must pass 4 exams and speak at least 3 languages. Being native, I've been living in my city during the last 46 years (I'm 46 yo) and you can imagine my knowledge of the area. So, together the history, traditions, etc, I will show the hidden places, tapas bars designed for locals (cheap and good), places to find the real hand painted tiles (even you have the possibility to see how they paint now using ancient techniques (those you will enjoy inside our monuments, etc, etc, etc . Let me surprise you !

If you don't find what you want to visit in my tours, pls ask me about it, as Seville offers one of the most important monumental heritages on earth, temporary exhibitions, new museums, Convents, local artists workshops, flamenco lessons, Cooking Classes, ANDALUSIAN wine tastings, horse rides tours in the countryside, industrial tourism (solar pannel plants, wind mills, olive mills, )etc, etc.

I would suggest you to ask for availability as sometimes monuments change their schedules because of temporary special events or even I can also change/move my existing bookings.

100% SUCCESSFUL

TAKE CARE AND KEEP EXPLORING THE WORLD !

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a fascinating tour today, led by Alvaro, of various local workshops. We so enjoyed learning about the painting of the various statues for processions, the beautiful traditional embroidery done by the ladies, and about how the flamenco dresses are designed and sewn, which are used for the Féria. Alvaro was an outstanding Guide and answered all of our questions and translated every explanation at the various workshops. I would unequivocally recommend Alvaro for anyone traveling to Seville.
