TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maria ! Say ‘hola’ from me to the rest of the family . I wish you all the best Álvaro
Words fail me when it comes to Alvaro. Having done hundreds of tours in my life I never expect to be wowed...but Alvaro wowed...bigtime. This guy is a tsunami of facts, figures, observations, advice, all effortlessly delivered by a thorough professional. People paused to listen in, one stranger jumped in and thanked him after overhearing his talk on Christopher Columbus's tomb. I felt like weeping after he left he was so good. If you are lucky enough, try to get Alvaro..or don't bother coming to Seville!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Niall, Thank you so much for your valious review !! It was also great for me to meet you in Seville ! Pls, Come back soon I wish you all the best Álvaro

Karyn BurnettUnited States
Álvaro gave me and my four children an excellent introduction to Sevilla. He kept everyone engaged as he described elements of this city's very long history and tied it into the part of the city we were in at the time. I loved that he asked questions vs. just lecturing and got the kids (and myself!) to really think about what we were learning. I highly recommend Álvero as a guide to Sevilla not only because of his depth of knowledge but also because of his pride in this city and culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karyn, Thank you very much for your beautiful review. It was great to me to meet you and where those hours exploring the city of Seville. Pls, say 'hola' from me to your daughters and son. I wish you all the best. Alvaro

Alvaro is a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge about Sevilla is phenomenal. His tour was very detailed and he gave us littke known facts as well as made sure that we saw all of the main historical and architectural sites. His English is very good and he tailored the tour to us. We needed to stop for lunch and he made a good suggestion for reasonably priced tapas. We enjoyed having a light lunch with him.

Samir PatelUnited States
Alvaro was simply THE BEST! Our good friends took a tour with Alvaro in 2016 and once we told them we were planning to visit Seville, they put us in touch with Alvaro without hesitation. Our family of four spent the day with Alvaro, touring the beautiful site and taking in the wonderful city. Alvaro was very personable, professional, and trustworthy. It felt like we were visiting on old friend who was showing us all the sites. Rarely do we rate anything 5 stars, but this was a no brainer. Book him!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Samir and family , I really appreciate your words and specially how kind you are . I love receiving customers and saying good bye to friends . Tell Tarak his a really 'numero uno' ;) Of course , I will be at your disposal next time you come back Andalusia. All the best !! Alvaro

Alvaro is wonderful. He is extraordinarily knowledgable about the amazing history, architecture, culture, economy and customs of Seville. But more than that, he is passionate. His love for his city and it's rich history is apparent in every word he speaks and every step he takes. He shared with us the best that Seville has to offer including a fantastic lunch at a local eatery and a breathtaking Flamenco show. if you truly want to see the magnificence that is Seville, allow Alvaro to show it to you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maria, Thank you so much for your nice words! :D It was my pleasure to share with you and your beautiful Family that Full Day in Sevilla . I hope you'll come back soon. All the Best. Alvaro
Thomas H L.Stavanger, Norway
Great tour with Alvaro covering the main highlights in the city of Seville - asking with lots of little additional stops not mentioned in the tour description. He shared great knowledge on the history and meaning of the sites we visited. And he was very patient and accommodating with our family (especially tolerating the antics of two young boys and a father that likes to take photographs). Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas , IT was my pleasure to show you my loved city. I wish you and your beautiful family All The Best !! Alvaro

Tarak PatelUnited States
Alvaro was a pure delight. He gave my group of 4 couples a wonderful 5 hour walking tour of Sevilla. You can tell that Alvaro truly enjoys what he does and loves his city very much. The tour was informative,very relaxing and his kind and courteous nature made our tour of Sevilla a most memorable one. As we were walking, he ran into other local tour guides and it was obvious how well respected and admired he is by his fellow colleagues. He is a must when looking to do a tour of Sevilla. He is NUMERO UNO!!!
Rosa OrsiniUnited States
The Monumental Seville Tour with Alvaro as our guide was indeed "monumental". Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, and his explanations very informative and clearly conveyed, but he is very approachable and pleasant to be with. He is a true professional and made us all feel as if we had known him for a long time. Do not hesitate on booking a tour with him. Thanks "Professor" !! Let us know when you are in town!

Judy Grace DelgadoPhilippines
Álvaro was a very interesting guide, full of history and anecdotes, our 6-hour walk around Sevilla was physically draining to say the least, especially because of the hot and humid weather and the fact that it was the start of Semana Santa and the place was packed with people. Yet, Álvaro was his jolly and enthusiastic self, one can not help but absorb his enthusiasm !

Alvaro was an extremely engaging and knowledgable ambassador for the great city of Sevilla. Our six hour walking tour included many of the most significant monuments in Sevilla including the Plaza de Espana, the Cathedral, Alcazar and the Jewish Quarter and numerous others monuments.

Wai ChengUnited States
Alvaro is extremely knowledgeable, providing centuries of history of the monuments and cathedrals that we have visited. He also made reservations (front row seating) on a Flamenco show and a dinner right by the river. Our family had a great experience and I will refer all my friends to Alvaro if they visit Seville. Again we enjoyed this pleasant visit to Seville and thanks for all his arrangements and insightful tour. We are lucky to have Alvaro as a guide, and now we have a friend in Seville.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wai, Thanks!! It really was a pleasure to attend you during your stay in Seville and help you to have a better stay. Say hello from me to your wife and your nice daughter and son! :D Muchas gracias. Best wishes. Álvaro

Alvaro was amazing. He provided us with so much information and made sure we saw all the important monuments. He made sure to customize the tour for us while making sure we were able to see everything.As it was during Semana Santa, he made sure to call ahead and get the times that things were closing.He recommended a great place to break for lunch and even told us where to go to see one of the most amazing processions once our tour was over. I would highly recommend him as a very knowledgeable guide.
