WOW! To be able to experience this amazing historical site in the solitude of the morning was beyond belief. Christina was our friendly, professional, passionate & friendly tour guide who explained relevant details & emotively described the 1000s of years of history in such a short time! This was an experience well worth the timing; before the crowds who descended whilst we reflected on our tour over a coffee & a rest in the beautiful gardens. There was then plenty of time to revisit or stroll through the Alcazar. Highly recommended.

Visiting the Alcazar before everyone else is a unique experience ! We met our incredible guide Penelope early in the morning and then we entered the Alcazar. My friend and I had a private tour of the place and we could take incredible pictures of the building and its gardens. Our guide took us back in time and made the kings and queens who lived here so long ago as real as we are! If you have to book one guided tour in Seville make sure it's this one!

Wonderful experience, almost magical! It was a privilege to be able to see the Alcázar practically by ourselves, and to be able to appreciate its beauty and history, without masses of tourists all around us. Our guide, Penelope, was witty and informative, it made the tour even more interesting. Absolutely recommended!!

He visitado otras veces el Alcázar pero nunca lo había experimentado de esta forma. El silencio, la tranquilidad y la posibilidad de experimentar la historia sin las continuas interrupciones de otros visitantes, es impagable. Una experiencia unica, preciosa y sumamente interesante, no solo por el espacio, que es increíble, sino además por la magnífica guia proporcionada por Penélope, explicando detalles historicos y curiosidades que ponen en evidencia la pasión que siente por el monumento, y no solo lo mas conocido del mismo. En definitiva una visita obligada en unas condiciones inmejorables.
