Had a lovely day exploring the white villages - drive to Zahara de la Sierra and Ronda from Seville was comfortable and scenic (taking you through the hills of Andalusia) and we found the tour to be a good mix of getting out and exploring these two villages without feeling overwhelmed by trying to see too many places in one day. Carmen was generous in sharing her knowledge of the area while also allowing us time and space to explore on our own - a nice change of pace from the city of Seville!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review. I am very sorry to hear that you had problems at lunch time, but I was torn between the decision of giving you some space as a couple or being with you the whole time But I am glad you enjoy the rest of the tour. Best regards Carmen
We spent a lovely 3 hours with Carmen, exploring the city centre and the Real Alcazar. Carmen's communication is great - she responds quickly to messages, advises when plans change, and is flexible and pro-active. For us, the Catedral had closed at short notice, and we could not do that part of the tour. Carmen was still able to provide insights to the history of the building, restoration efforts, and key points. We then skipped the lines at the Alcazar, and had a great tour there. Carmen was terrific!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Jeffrey! I am glad you chose Seville. I had a nice time with your lovely family.

Carmen took me to landmarks I knew nothing about and explained the importance and it was amazing that there are so many sights to see. She walked me through several parts of town showing me different ways of live and architecture explains history at the time. Carmen detoured so I could pick up gifts she knows where everything is. Be prepared to walk it won't seem like you are walking a lot but you are
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much for your appreciation. I am glad you liked the tour. I will definitely add new tours. Thanks for your advice. All the best!
Our tour with lovely Carmen was amazing! Would get back with her any time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Esther for your appreciation. I will very pleased to see you again any time.

Patricia P ShulmanUnited States
Carmen's Sephardic Seville tour was excellent. She is knowledgeable and friendly. We walked the streets from our hotel through the Sephardic districts, at one point going through the maze of what is now a hotel encompassing former Sephardic streets and homes. The Alcazar is amazing and Carmen brought its history alive for us. She inspired my husband to seek DNA testing to determine if he might have some Sephardic ancestry! Ask her to purchase the Alcazar entry tickets for you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much Patricia. I am sorry you had this little inconvinience with the Alcazar's tickets but fortunately we could fix it. I am glad we could see parts of the genuine sephardic Seville with little tourism and I am pleased you enjoyed so much. Take care.

Wow! Our group of six had a wonderful day with Carmen in Sevilla and Cadiz. She was a delight - engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. We like to learn about the places we visit but we also like to have fun doing it, so for us Carmen perfect. We quickly felt that as though we were in the company of an old friend, one who cared about us and understood us. Our day with both Carmen was one of the absolute best touring days we've ever had. A true pleasure and a great memory. Thanks for everything, Carmen!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Big thanks to you too. I truly enjoy showing you my city and I felt really like sharing the fun with friends Take care and big THANKS to all of you. Peple like you make my job a, real pleasure.

We were in Seville on a cruise stop and ,unfortunately, on a very rainy day. This was a walking tour, so not the easiest in the rain, but Carmen did a wonderful job of creating a great experience. She is so knowledgeable about Seville and brought it to life. We stopped at a lovely hotel, and they lent us an extra umbrella! We really enjoyed it and hopefully we can return. Thank you so much, Carmen. Cary McGann.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Cary for your nice commentary. I am glad you enjoyed Seville and have a nice experience despise the rain. I hope we all can meet any other time somewhere in the future. Take care!

Lawrence MuirPerth, Australia
Carmen was immensely knowledgeable on Seville and gave us a marvellous tour of the sights of the town. We also had a delightful lunch including some White Sangria that we all took the recipe for. More importantly, Carmen made us feel at ease and we enjoyed her company which felt More like a good friend than a professional guide. Have no hesitation in recommending Carmen to all potential visitors to Seville.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks alot for your recommendation. You were equally enthusiastic and prepared to have fun. This is very positive for my job and I get so comfortable with you that I feel I am showing my city to friends. I hope to see you again. If not take care and good luck in your lives. Thanks Debi, Kristy and Lawrence.

Cynthia AmlingUnited States
Carmen is lovely! Very knowledgeable about the history of Seville. We had a delightful morning touring the Cathedral and the Real Alcazar with her. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. It has been great to guide you.
Carmen was a wonderful guide. She took us on a 3hr orientation & food tour and did a spontaneous stop at the bull ring. The best part was being able to enter the bull ring first while others needed to wait for an official guide. Carmen is also great with kids, my daughter kept wanting to hold her hand and show her things. Afterwards we went to the fresh food market for lunch. She helped us order and the food was delicious. Highly recommend you take a tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. I hope that the restaurants I have recommended worked out well with you and your family. Have a great time in Andalucía and safe trip back home. Take care. Carmen
William B.Alamo, CALIFORNIA, United States
We had our tour with your guide Carmen today and it went extremely well. She lined up a cab to drive us around the city and the driver was totally cooperative. Carmen is an excellent guide. Having lived in England for 6 years, she has an excellent command of English. She is thoroughly familiar with the history, customs and architecture of Seville. She is kind, considerate and personable. We give her 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. I am glad you finally enjoyed my city, Seville. I give you 5 stars too!! Take care. Carmen

Carmen is a jewel! She is energetic, intelligent and knows the region and its culture. Our tour began at the pier in Cádiz where we were met by Carmen and our driver. The one and one-half hour trip to Sevilla was fun and informative. By the time we arrived in Sevilla, we felt like she was family! Her style and knowledge of the city far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Carmen!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jim. I also felt like travelling with family. Take care and we keep the contact. Un abrazo grande para todos

Carmen was very prompt and met us at our hotel. Her English is impeccable and she knows her history of Seville. She is a delightful person and my husband and I felt at home instantly.

Rebecca RichardsonUnited States
Carmen was simply amazing. In the middle of the worst rain Seville has seen in years, we spent 6 hours together talking, chatting, learning, walking, ducking in and out of the rain, ending with lunch of the most amazing tapas. Carmen is knowledgeable, gracious, professional, flexible, and generous with her time and talents. Yes, call her!!! She will work with you so that you can have the tour you like.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. I did enjoy your company and you humor. You are fun and enthusiastic people. I has been a reciprocal wonderful experience. Take care. Carmen
Christopher DabskiUnited States
Our walking tour of Seville with Carmen was a blast and we wouldn't hesitate recommending it to any newcomers to this wonderful city. Carmen, an experienced tour guide, turned out to be informative, fluent in English, dynamic and practical but more importantly warm, witty and charming. After a few hours, which flew by in an instant, we all felt like good friends who had known each other for years. The tour is highly flexible and you can request to be taken to as many or to as few attraction as you want.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Chris and Cristina. I had a great time with you in my city. It is easy to be flexible and enthusiastic with people like you. It makes my work easy and enjoyable. And Yess, it seems like we have known each other for years. See you in a Buffalo. Take care
