Laura ReichgutUnited States
Alvaro was phenomenal. He was friendly, interesting, and extremely knowledgeable as a native of Seville. We feel like we have a better understanding of the history and appreciation for the architecture. He also tailored the tour towards our interests, and seemed to notice when our teens were ready to move on to the next thing. Sharing delicious tapas with Alvaro was a perfect end to the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura , Thank you very much for your beautiful words . It was my pleasure to attend your wonderful family . I wish you all the best Álvaro

Patricia KelsoUnited States
Seeing the "white towns" was impressive and haviing Alvaro share the history was great! We also had anice lunch at a small cafe, which was delicious! The only regret was that the drive was very long - a pretty drive but seven hours was a bit much. There's nothing to do aabout that, but it's warning to others who may be interested.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patrícia , Im sorry about your feeling about the driving duration . We were about 3h 30 m driving and 4h 30 m visiting the different sites included in the itinerary which lasted 8 hours . This is the only way of visiting this wonderful part of Andalusia . Anyway , thanks for choosing my tour hoping that you and your husband will come back very soon. Álvaro

We went out with Alvaro in 2016, and hired him again for 3 days this trip; went to visit a sherry winery in Jerez. It was a six person group, in a beautiful sophisticated winery. We did not see the horses, but that is because we saw them in Los Angeles some years ago. This too is not to be missed. We also went to see a white town, but Cadiz is highly recommended as well. You won't go wrong with Alvaro, as his knowledge abounds and he's completely fluent in English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lynn !!! Álvaro
Lynn G.Sarasot, FL, United States
Alvaro was our guide for Seville. We went with him to the Alcazar in 2016, and this year he toured with us for three days to see what we missed. We customize all of our tours.The Seville Cathedral is magnificent, and not to be missed. If you are looking for a guide who is completely fluent in English, full of energy and personality, and extremely knowledgable about the history of Seville and more, then you won't go wrong in hiring him. He knows his city and the surrounding towns extremely well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks !!!!! Álvaro
Lynn G.Sarasot, FL, United States
This was our second trip to Seville, and we are interested in Roman History. We saw the Alcazar with Alvaro in 2016, and swore that we would return. We customize our tours. On this day we went to Italica, took a general tour of the city, and had lunch like a local with a local. Alvaro is completely fluent in English and his knowledge is endless. We spent three days with him, learned a lot, and thanks to Alvaro enjoyed our stay in Seville. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynn, Thank you very much for your beautiful review and for counting on me again. I wish you and David all the best ! Álvaro
Lisa HartzellUnited States
Alvaro was our tour guide on two separate private full day tours. I can't say enough about how great he is. My husband generally doesn't like to go on tours and he enjoyed both tours with Alavaro. Alvaro is awesome and we will be contacting him the next time we are in Spain. He's the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your beautiful review . I’m sure we will meet again in the future ! ;) I wish you all the best Álvaro
Lisa HartzellUnited States
Alvaro was our tour guide on two separate full day private tours. He is an amazing tour guide and I can't say enough about how great he is.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lisa ! Your home is on my list ! Say hello to your husband from me ! All the best. Álvaro

Elaine S.United States
Álvaro was the most knowledgeable tour guide that we had during our visits throughout the Mediterranean. He had so much information of Cadiz and Seville areas and the history. We had two people in our group with some mobility issues and he did his best to make it easier for them. We enjoyed stopping for tapas and having him pick out local favorites, they were delicious. This tour was very informative and Álvaro was very friendly and we enjoyed our day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elaine , Thank you so much for your beautiful review . It was great for me to attend your party and hope You will come back very soon to continue exploring Andalusia with me. Ela y, Pam, Randy , Alison and Jim, I wish you all the best. Greetings from Seville Álvaro

Greg C.United States
Alvaro was fantastic. Very articulate and easy to understand. He was very knowledgeable and made good use of props (maps, photos on his phone, etc.). We spent the better part of 2 days with Alvaro, and thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. We learned a lot and saw a lot had a lot of fun while doing it. We highly recommend both Seville and Alvaro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Greg , Thank you so much for your wonderful review !! It was great for me to be with you walking through the beautiful Seville . I wish you all the best Álvaro
Deborah FriedmanUnited States
Al was just great! I highly recommend him. He gives you a great historical perspective of the city to begin and then proceeds to explain how each area came into being. We saw the Real Alzucar, tobacco factory and the beautiful cathedral. Al was also very accommodating to begin a little earlier for us so that we could get to the Jueves flea market before closing. He is easy to talk to, funny and knows his food! He gave us great local restaurant recommendations and they were perfect! Book him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debbie, Thank you so much for your beautiful review ! I hope you founded something interesting to buy at El Jueves flea market ... it’s very unique. Pls, say ‘hola’ from me to Jeffrey , Alan and Cindy. I wish you all the best. Álvaro
Linda GoodsonUnited States
Alvaro was a wealth of information. His knowledge of history was great and set the stage for all the parts of Cordoba we toured. He then took us for a fantastic lunch and provided some interesting info around the food and culture of the area. He drove us in to Seville and got us to our hotel right on time. I would recommend tours with Alvaro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda , Thank you so much for your beautiful review ! I hope you come back soon !! All the best Álvaro
We were 2 senior couples from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and had a wonderful experience with Alvaro. We were kept busy the entire day, saw more than we could have imagined and Alvaro had picked up to see the Alcazar and Cathedral in advance so that we could skip the line. He recommended some restaurants, one that we went to after the tour and of course the food was great. Alvaro's historical knowledge of Seville and Spain was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandra , Thank you very much for your beautiful review. Enjoy your stay in Andalucia and Morocco ! I wish you all the best Álvaro
Edward ValverdeUnited States
Alvaro was professional, caring and very knowledgeable. He made a special place feel exactly that, something many tour guides can't always pull off. I highly recommend him.

Sharon Richey-McClendonUnited States
Alvaro was phenomenal. My 91 y/o grandfather and I took a tour with him for an entire afternoon and evening. Al was very accommodating to the wheelchair, insisting that he also spent some time pushing it to give me a break. He first met us at the hotel and reviewed what we would like to see and the history of Seville and its connection to Andalusia using maps, which really put things into perspective. Al was very insightful in the many questions we asked and took us for tapas. My favorite guide in Spain!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon , Thank you very much for your great review ! It was great for me to show you my hometown and share those wonderful tapas . Say ‘hola’ from me to your grandfather . I wish you all the best !! Álvaro
Virginia (Ginny) A.United States
Alvaro was an excellent guide. We started with a short walk through Cadiz that was great. He loved to share the history of Cadiz and Seville and was very knowledgeable about the area and the sights we saw. Seville was definitely "his city"! Seville is a beautiful area I wish we had more time. After our visits to the Cathedral and Palace a stop for Tapas was perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ginny !! It was a great day together in Cadiz and Seville . Pls, come back very soon. All the best Álvaro

Barry R.New York, NEW YORK, United States
Great full day getting to know Seville. Our guide, Alvaro, was extremely knowledgeable and nice to spend the day with. We had a great tour in this beautiful and important city. We saw all the important sights, were well entertained with a boat ride and saw an excellent flamenco show. We also learned some important gastronomic insights. Alvaro knows his stuff! I highly recommend Alvaro
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barry and Linda , Thank you so much for your nice review ! Have a great stay exploring the wonderful Andalucia !! All the best Álvaro
Mikhail OstrovUnited States
My family (including two kids 11 and 15) have really enjoyed the tour by Alvaro. He was very accommodating in terms of timing of the tour. The tour by Alvaro involved colorful commentaries from the history of Seville and a very thoughtful path through the city. We appreciated spending sufficient quality time covering fewer landmarks rather than racing through. I would definitely recommend Alvaro to other visitors of Seville.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mikhail , Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I hope you come back soon . Best wishes Álvaro
Dawn DoverUnited States
Alvaro was the best ever! He was so knowledgeable, so enthusiastic and a great buddy on the tour! Great recommendations of other things to do. I dare you to play "stump the guide" with him... you will lose. Hurry and book him... we tried to have another afternoon or day with him and his schedule was totally full. Fantastic experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dawn, Thank you so much for your wonderful review ! Sorry for not having availability to do a second tour with you . I hope you’ll come back soon and continue our experience in the wonderful Seville. I wish you all the best Álvaro

Absolutely brilliant presentation. I am a fan of Seville forever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ravi, It was great for me to attend you and your beautiful family in the wonderful Seville . Take care and keep exploring the world !! Best Álvaro
Ravinder SajwanUnited States
Alvaro guided us over a course of two days. I don't want to call him a tour guide. He is an extremely knowledgeable historian with an excellent capability to combine the old and new and provide a time capsule that stays in your mind forever. We highly recommend Alvaro and will always work with him on our trips to Andalusia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ravi, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Hope to meeting you very soon in Andalusia ! I wish all the best Álvaro

Abraham CloseUnited States
Loved this tour; my first with Tours by Locals! I really recommend Álvaro because he made the tour exciting and was extremely accommodating when we needed to end the tour early because we were exhausted (this was our fault because we hadn't slept in 30+ hours). He even helped us figure out how to buy earlier bus tickets so we could get to our destination faster for some needed sleep.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Abraham, Thank you so much for your wonderful review ! Hope to see you and your brother very soon. All the best Álvaro
