We would thoroughly recommend Jose. His tour is very informative, humorous and took us to places we would not know existed. Very enjoyable three hours.

Alfonso's guided tour in Sevilla was 5*! We were disappointed that the driver that brought us from Cadiz to Sevilla and return did not speak English to be able to describe passing sights.

Jose has a strong background in the history and culture of Sevilla. He is very friendly and we appreciated that he volunteered to take photos of all three of us many times. We really enjoyed this tour!

Jose was great! He was on time, organized, and friendly. He brought his iPad to show us visuals (movie posters, scenes) of the places we were looking at (yay! for us Game of Thrones fans). He didn't just tell us facts...he told us stories. He brought the Alcazar and the Cathedral to life. He was engaging and our kids listened intently. I would highly recommend his tours for families.

Date: May 29/19

Jose' and this tour GREATLY exceeded our expectations! We were a group of 3 friends who love GOT and wanted to experience some of the locations. Jose' picked us up at our hotel and our adventure began. He had arranged for a special admittance to the bullring in Osuna -- we were the ONLY people there! And the rest of our tour was just as special. Jose' is as much of a GOT fan as we are, so we had a ball bouncing theories and ideas around. Just a fun, fun day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a great review ... can you hear? I am clapping :) You were just wonderful clients and I loved sharing with you all the GOT theories. Thank you again and please let me know if you come back to Meereen ... sorry ... Sevilla. Saludos and besos from Sevilla

Jose took my small group on a very interesting visit to the major sights of Seville. We certainly enjoyed hearing about the history of the Plaza Espanya, the Alcazar and the grand Catherdral of Sevilla. He was quite informative and very knowledgeable. I would recommend his services to those wishing for a comprehensive overview of this lovely city in Spain.

Alfonso was very knowledgable and his presentation was easy to understand both on the history of the places and of course on the shooting of the GOT ! My wife and I felt comfortable and relax with him throughout the whole tour as he is a true professional. No regrets and definitely highly recommended guide.

José Alfonso mixed in history together with stories of Sevilla today. He gave us as much time as we wanted at each site and the tour was well paced. He is an informed and knowledgeable guide.

We had an excellent offbeat tour with Jose on Dec. 14, 2018. He was prompt, well groomed and spoke excellent English. He has a degree in history which we resourced constantly on 16th century Sevilla. He was happy showing us the obscure churches and convents on our list and provided excellent commentary. He had done his homework! In addition we toured the Museo de Santa Jorge, a fascinating place not on the most tourist's itinerary. We recommend him highly. Thanks Jose.

Jose A. was a wonderful guide. We only had a brief time in Sevilla, yet he was able to get the major attractions in. I greatly appreciated his casual style. He was very knowledgeable yet did not attempt to give us a Ph.D. on the history of Sevilla. This tour is well designed and worth the expense.

A solid, informative tour, we really enjoyed the time we spent with Alfonso. He brought the history of the city to life, even for our 2nd grader. With a nicely paced tour, we found that we saw lots of interesting aspects of the city and got to feel more familiar with the labyrinthine layout of Sevilla. Highly recommended!

I am delayed in writing this review. Jose was an amazing guide. I'll let you meet him in person to learn the name he actually goes by. : ). His knowledge of Sevilla was terrific and he mixed the right amount of history with the right amount of pop culture (Game of Thrones) in our tour. The pace of the tour was perfect. He was personable. I took this tour with my dad and he catered to both of our needs. Taking a private tour was also the way to go! Highly recommend!

You will not find a better guide! I came to Seville to visit every Game of Thrones filming location & Alfonso made it happen! Alfonso had extensive GoT knowledge and brought photos/videos for each location to bring it to life. I was able to take ample time at each location and Alfonso helped ensure I got plenty of pictures to remember the day. Alfonso also gave great recommendations for things to do in Seville. Overall, these tours were the highlight of my trip and I could not be happier! Thanks Alfonso!!

My tours with Alfonso were the highlight of my trip!! I came to Spain specifically to visit Game of Thrones filming locations and I could not have ended up with a better tour guide. Alfonso is not only knowledgable about all the filming locations, but I also enjoyed discussing the show and the many fan theories. Alfonso was so nice and helpful, I will be forever grateful for his hospitality and the many pictures he took for me to remember all the beautiful locations! Thank you for such a wonderful trip!!

This guide consistently receives five stars which is no surprise. We would rate Jose Alfonso (aka Sam) six stars if possible; he possesses an incredible knowledge base of Spanish history, culture, and the arts. After four hours my husband and I were worn out and totally wowed. However, in addition to a command of historical and current facts, events and personalities, Jose is extremely gracious, warm and full of life - attributes hard to measure but so important to a special day.

Jose was a wonderful guide. His knowledge of Seville and the operas that take place here was outstanding. He was extremely friendly and courteous, and very considerate of the fact that it was a very hot and sunny day. I would highly recommend Jose to other travelers. We especially enjoyed the special theme of the tour - Seville - the city of Opera. More such themed guides would be a welcomed suggestion.

Alfonso provided us a very special and personal experience. We never felt rushed, and it was a truly relaxing and enlightening experience. It was very much enhanced by Alfonso showing us the actual scenes that were filmed in the locations visited. The highlight was at the bullring in Osuna where the season 5 finale was filmed, and we had the whole place to ourselves.
