Excellent walking tour ! Our tour guide Victor was very knowledgeable. Seville is a beautiful city ! We stayed at Barrio Santa Cruz . A very historical city.
Excellent personal tour!

Three of us had an excellent personal tour with Victor of Macarena Tours through the Jewish Quarter or Seville and La Plaza de Espana. Really friendly helpful guide who can bring the interesting parts of the history alive without getting bogged down in the detail. Also Victor was very open to questions on both historical and current day life in Spain. Highly recommended!
The next day we did another tour with Victor around the Cathedral, Giralda and Alcazar. Again excellent - informative, interesting and interactive. We normally prefer to wander round on our own but doing it with Victor was well worth it!
Un guide qui vient du nord et qui adore seville
Meander36926700496, 07-03-2022
Victor est un guide très enthousiaste et is transmet sa passion pour Séville. On a adoré les histoires et les symboles dans le quartier de santa cruz. Ce qui est un point positif avec Victor c est qu il est du Nord et donc il parle facilement des différences qu ils remarquent encore chaque jour entre le nord de l Espagne et Seville. C est sa touche personnelle que nous avons aussi apprécié. Je vous le recommande .
Visite originale

Cette visite était incroyable et nous en gardons un souvenir fabuleux. Nous avons appris énormément de choses sur Seville, sur le lien avec la France. C'était une visite très riche et pleine de découvertes que nous recommandons vraiment car cela nous a permis d'avoir une connaissance complète de la ville. le guide était hyper sympa et très à l'écoute. Nos enfants aussi étaient captivés. Bref un de nos meilleurs moments des vacances !!
