An excellent tour and a great way to see the sights of Seville. Maleek (our guide) was awesome, very knowledgeable about the city and very relaxed yet professional and friendly. For anyone with 3 hours to spare we’d highly recommend booking this tour, there is so much to see in Seville and travelling by bike means you can see so much more than by walking.

Ivan our local guide was very informative about his city and it’s history whilst being amusing and easy to chat with. A great way to see beautiful Seville and much easier than walking in the heat.

We really enjoyed our scooter tour. Luis was extremely knowledgeable with good English. Saw so much of the city which we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Would thoroughly recommend.

The bus trip provides a good starting point for exploring Seville. The free walking tour was well worth doing.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. A great way to learn about the city during a short stay!
