A very knowledgeable guide. He gave us a good overview of history in relation to the monuments we visited with him and he also addressed other questions we had regarding food and flamenco shows. Was very thorough in his explanations and his love of Sevilla is evident as he shows you around. We booked him for a private tour with a group of seven and everyone was pleased with him, including the children. Would definitely recommend him to others.

Alvaro was amazing - putting up with 6 70+-year-olds for this day in Sevilla as well as a second, very long day, to Granada and back. He made sure we saw all the right things. He showed us the right way to enjoy a tapas lunch, and then recommended other places for dinner, which were equally great. He was so very knowledgeable about everything on the tour. What a cathedral! We would heartedly recommend Alvaro to everyone, and would certainly ask for him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Glenn, Thank you very much It was my pleasure to share with you that nice day Best wishes Álvaro

Very good tour by somebody so clearly energised by the splendid history of Seville. He was an excellent companion who was patient and caring for me (I am in a wheelchair). He even complained to the manager of the otherwise accessible Alcazar palaces of one particular access deficiency (it will now be fixed). A top rate tour guide.

William WeidemaierUnited States
Álvaro, a longtime resident of Seville and licenced guide, was excellent. We did a four-person, four-hour tour of Seville with him in October, 2015. It was a great tour (except for the rain). He was very informative and enjoyable to be with. He has a good command of English and answered our many questions. He was patient and kept the pace slow even though he had another tour scheduled after us. Very professional. Highly recommend Álvaro and his tour. It's worth the extra cost over the larger tours

William GarrisonRoyal Oaks, CALIFORNIA, United States
Alvaro is a truly exceptional guide. He is very knowledgeable and can quickly tailor the tour to the client's interests. Quite capable of answering a wide range of contemporary, artistic, historical and political issues. This was our first of three tours with Alvaro. He greatly enhanced the Cathedral tour with his amazing knowledge about the cardinals's hats and Columbus' burials, e.g. The Royal palace was a surprising (mind blowing) gem. Better than the Alhambra, especially with Alvaro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill, Thank you so much for your great review! :D All the Best . Alvaro
Alvaro es profesional y apasionado de su ciudad y su trabajo. Un lujo haber visitado Sevilla con él
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Paula: Muchísimas gracias por tus comentarios. Fue un placer y también un lujo para mí haberos atendido. :D Atentamente. Álvaro
Alvaro was terrific! He was really knowledgable about Seville. He was very passionate about his home town - very warm and interesting. He gave us several tips on where to eat and which cities to take day trips to. We were two families of English speakers, with both families having teenagers. Alvaro even held the interest of the teens!!! He was just lovely and we would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, thank you so much for your Great words !! Pls, enjoy your stay in Córdoba, Ronda, Vejer, Granada and of course in the pearl of Spain : Seville. ;D It was really nice to meet you. All the best. Alvaro
Lynn G.Sarasot, FL, United States
This was our best tour taken throughout a 28 day journey, starting in Rome on land; then by ship heading back to the US, in which Cadiz was only one port stop. Unfortunately the ship was only in Cadiz for one day. This was the only tour that when it ended, we wished that we had more time with the guide, and were sorry to say goodbye. His tour of the Alcazar was magical. He took us back in time and brought history to life for us.A dream would be to spend more time in Spain with Alvaro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynn, Thanks so much for your kind words. I had a terrific time showing you around the unique Alcazar from Seville . It was a pleasure meeting you ! Look forward to sharing more of the Seville area with you on your return. Best Wishes. Alvaro

Debbie HolzmanDeerfield, IL, United States
My husband, daughter, and I loved our tour with Alvaro. He was very personable and accommodating to our requests and interests. Alvaro is a great historian. My daughter had recently visited many of the sites we toured, as she is studying in Spain for a semester, and felt his facts and stories made each place come alive to her. She felt she gained a greater understanding (as did my husband and me) of the cultural side of Seville. Alvaro's depth and breath of knowledge is outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debbie, thanks for your review. It really was a pleasure for me to show you the beautiful Seville ! Pls, come back soon ! Best wishes. Álvaro

Jane CartyUnited States
This was a wonderful tour and Alvaro is a great guide. His English is excellent and his knowledge of the history of the area and the different cultures which have produced the Spain of today is fantastic. He also was helpful to us in sending us to the Feria de Sevilla, finding shopping areas, and restaurants. Alvaro went to a lot of trouble to help us get bullfight tickets. We will see him again on our next trip to Spain. We highly recommend his tours when you are in Sevilla.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jane ! Thank you very much for your post !!! As I told you during your tour in the gorgeous city of Seville that It´s a pleasure for me to attend you and hope to see you in the future too. :-D Warmest regards. Alvaro
