Maria D.

Sevilla, Spain

Welcome to my personal page. My name is María, I am 38 and deeply passionate about my city.

What to say about Seville, besides being the place where I have lived all my life I am passionate about this beautiful place.
I take pride in my job and I feel a very lucky person to make my work a passion, not everyone can say that!
Seville is one of the few cities that immediately and completely fulfils the expectations of visitors. It reflects everyone's first mental of Spain, bullfights, bodegas, wrought-iron balconies, fountains, moorish arabesques, ceramic tiles, flamenco. . .
It is the blinding colours of Seville, more than anything else, that set it apart. The ever-present blue sky remains deep blue, rarely dissolving into the summer haziness of the Mediterranean coast. Much of the city is shaded by orange trees, their leaves remaining emerald green all year round. The oranges themselves provide additional speckles of colour during the cooler months, and towards the end of March the voluptuous scent of their blossom duels with, and defeats, the heavy perfumes favoured by the travellers.

I also love cooking, in Spain we have a very rich gastronomy, that is why I offer you the gastronomic tour and class. I hope you to encourage to know more about our culinary culture!I consider myself a good cook and a lover of all of our plates!
I love bike tours because is the best way to know Seville in less time. The city is very suitable for riding a bike, it has available areas for it, so it is safe and funny.

Flamenco music was developed by Triana Gypsies. It arose from the result of the miscegenation of natives, Moorish's, Jews and Gypsies that was in the city. In these neighbourhoods we can delight with his legacy permeated in its streets.

My tours include Santa Cruz Quarter, San Lorenzo neighbourhood, Maria Luisa park and of course the cradle of Flamenco, the neighborhood of Triana, as well as a "market-morning tour" throughout the old town . But if you like, I can design a tour according to your preferences.


A Recent Review of this guide

Our family had the best time today with Maria today. We enjoyed her enthusiasm and knowledge of the history of Seville and the sites we visited. We visited the Royal Alcazar and the Cathedral of Seville. We learned so much. We have used Tours by Local many times before. Maria is one of the best guides we've had. I highly recommend Maria and Tours by Locals. Would use Maria again if visiting the area. 5 STARS.
