Awesome tales and historical facts of the former Jewish Quarter
asymmetricalpx, 17-08-2022
Julio, our guide, is definitely the highlight of this walking tour. Our 1.5hrs with him felt too short! He's an amazing storyteller, extremely knowledgeable and answers our every question. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know Seville's former Jewish Quarter on a deeper level.
Great tour! Thank you Julio!

Julio was a wealth of information. His vast knowledge of Seville, unforgettable funny and tragic stories and light, mirthful nature made for a wonderful tour. Our family takes lots and lots of these tours and know that it’s very much a roll of the dice. Take it from us, Julio’s 1 1/2 tour of the Jewish Santa Cruz neighborhood is a real winner!
Interesting engaged guide, great tour.
