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.
