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.

This tour was amazing! The visit to Francisco Carrera Iglesias's workroom was so interesting. His skill in embroidery was excellent. I loved learning about how the painted tiles were made, and bought a few at the store next to the museum. The fabric store we visited was jaw dropping. Alvero was so knowledgable at every stop. The statue sculptor was so skilled and friendly. Alvero really adapted my tour to my interests.

This was an excellent introduction to the art and cultural of Seville, and Alvaro was a charming and knowledgeable guide. By email, I explained that I was interested especially in the flamenco fashions and designs. So, he arranged not only to go through the sections of Seville that specialize in these dresses and fabrics, but to go by car to a nearby suburb where we visited a manufacturing workshop. And I was able to try on a beautiful dress, complete with shawl and flower in my hair. Marvelous!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bonnie, Thank you so much for your great review! :D You have seen WHY Seville is called the Art City! It was a pleasure for me to attend you showing the hidden Sevilla. All the Best. Alvaro
