We spent 4 days with Francesco touring Seville, Ronda and Cordoba and had a fabulous time. Francesco was excellent with giving us a great perspective on the history of Andalusia and of each of the places we visited. He connected very well with our two sons and was fantastic in keeping them engaged and answering all their numerous questions. I would highly recommend Francesco as a guide. He made our trip to Andalusia very memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you TVR. Dealing and touring with children is always a privilege to me. Travellers like your family make me love my business. All the best. Francesco.

Francesco was a fantastic guide. His English was excellent, and his knowledge of the places we visited was outstanding. He was a very careful driver, and was always willing to answer our questions. We learnt a lot of the history in both Jerez and Cadiz.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cathryn, it's been a real pleasure to feel your sincere interest in knowing as much as possible about this land and its history and present. Every question was an invitation to introduce this country to you. Please continue to enjoy the world with Tours by Locals. Francesco!

Date: May 8/18

My tour with Francesco will be a highlight of my trip to Spain. His knowledge of the Alcazar and Catedral was excellent but I also appreciated that he was sensitive to my preferences and I loved his "go with the flow attitude " . It's why tours by locals is a good choice. They can be more flexible with their clients. Francesco ' s choice of tapas bars was outstanding as well. He took me to 2 that most tourists wouldn't find and the food left an indelible impression. Two the B'S up for Francesco.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anette thank you for taking the time to review our walk in Seville. You are right: 99% of tapas tours do not cover the most authentic venues of the town. This is why I keep their names TOP SECRET. The day you read its names on line, they will turn into something else ;-) I wish you a beautiful continuation of your trip, especially in the cheese kingdom in the north of Spain . Yours, Francesco

Francesco is an amazing guide and helped our visit of Seville be very special. He went out of his way to help us with the evening show of flamenco when we realized at the last minute that we had booked for the wrong date. He stayed with us past his scheduled hours to make sure we were taken care of. His knowledge of the history of the place was thorough. Highly recommend his services and will be sure to introduce him to our friends. Thanks Franceso...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words Mr.Iyer, and thank your party for the visit to Seville. I use to wish I could return the visit to my client's land. However, in this case, I have returned it already. Last May 2017 I have been in your beautiful country. I have loved every meal, every temple, every experience I had in southern India. On our Seville tour: you deserved every effort I might have made for seeing you enjoying your trip. I promise I will give your friends the best possible service, when they come

We had a lot of fun on the Game of Thrones tour. It was amazing to see the locations and realize how little they had to do to turn them into the kingdom of Westeros. Francesco was energetic and enthusiastic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Donna. Your visit made me realize how beautiful and dramatic Seville's sites looked to the location scouts of GOT. I also have to say that Seville and its surroundings were used to shoot more movies: - 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992 with Gerard Depardieu and Sigourney Weaver - Lawrence of Arabia (1967) - The Dictator (2012) - Star Wars (2003) - Game of Thrones - Knight & day (Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz) - Kingdom of Heaven (Ridley Scott) - Grupo 7 - Nadie conoce a nadie - La Isla Mínima

My wife and I loved our tour with Francesco! He is a kind and thoughtful person and he customized our tour around our interests as we talked along the way. Francesco has an encyclopedic knowledge of Seville and was able to tell us a story about nearly every street we walked down. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in getting acquainted with the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for your speedy review. I hope you liked your lunch after the tour and found your basketball shirt in Seville. Please keep enjoying your trip and count on Francesco and Toursbylocals for whatever directions and help you may need in Spain and beyond.

My wife and I enjoyed our half day tour with Francesco. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He will provide a very full tour, covering a lot of ground in the time you have with him: he will keep you going at a steady pace. If you are looking for someone to provide you with a full description of the history and sites you are visiting in historic Seville, Francesco is a good choice.

Thank you Francesco for our excellent Jewish tour of Sevilla. Francesco was very knowledgeable and took us on this "treasure hunt" of Jewish history in Sevilla. He also included in the tour the highlights of Sevilla. The carriage ride through Sevilla was special. Francesco was mindful of the pace of the tour because of the hot weather. Again, thank you Francesco

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Weissberg for your visit. Seville's Sefardi heritage is still there for those who want to discover it. All the best!

Francesco was amazing. Full of interesting stories, energy, kindness and humor. He kept us all engaged for the 4 hours, and was very flexible on timing when certain venues were not open because the tour was on a Sunday. He was extremely knowledgeable on EVERYTHING about Seville and its history, and he made the tour customized for my family of 5. He even climbed the bell tower with us, while most other tour guides stay in the cathedral and wait! I would highly recommend Francesco!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the chance to visit again the Jewish quarter with your family. Thank you for the opportunity to personally know the future king of Spain, his brother and sister and especially his parents. I have enjoyed every minute spent together! All the best for you.

This tour is well-named: total relaxation after so much historical information and walking for a week. Francesco's sensitivity to our fatigue made for a most enjoyable tour, including a carriage ride, fun stroll to the Mushroom, and a private boat ride. He gave great suggestions for restaurants and for our up-coming days in Spain. This was one of our favorite tours of our two weeks' visit. was a pleasure. Francesco is perfect at the job he does.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again!
