Welcome to the most important mixture of cultures that you can find in the south of Europe.
My name is Manuel, I was born in Sevilla 43 years ago and since the last academic year I have been interested to work as a tour guide. My education and experience has always been related to tourism and customer relations.
Diploma in Tourism (1995), and Bachelor degree in Art History (2004) of the University of Seville, and Official Tourist Guide Licence in Andalusia (2000). (License #888)
I worked as a Tour leader during two years. Morover during five years I have been working as a travel agent in several travel agencies in Sevilla, I have a proven experience in this field and for seven years I pursued my work in one of the Ayuntamientos (equivalent to a town hall) of the Province of Seville as an official in tourism and culture. For the last years I have concentrated on working as a freelance private guide in the beautiful city of Seville.
My private visit with you:
Whenever I travel around the world as a tourist, I have some kind of obsession with finding the origin of every city, from where it comes its architectural legacy, the essence of its monuments, their traditions and gastronomy… If you come to Sevilla, I take your place as well. I always try to get the visitor's attention and be just another tourist enjoying the visit.
My job consists on making sure that the client enjoys his/her holidays and that he gets closer to the essence of this incredible city.
I consider myself as a companion, a friend. I enjoy my work very much so I try to transmit that to the client. My biggest objective is that you don't forget that you have to have fun.
That you came to another city to get to know it in a private tour, but also to rest from your daily routine in your city.
I am waiting for you!
A Recent Review of this guide
Manuel was an excellent tour guide, providing historical information that brought you right back to the periods when the various building were built, conquered and rebuilt. He is a gentle and well known guide; he knew someone at every building or cafe and on every street. He provides a wonderful insight into Seville.
