*** ACCESS TICKETS NOT INCLUDED***
14,5€/ adult. Tickets to be purchased in advance by the guide and to be refunded the day of the tour.

We are going to explore the Royal Palace in Seville, or the Alcazar de Sevilla. Home to kings, Royals and dignitaries sent from kingdoms far away.
Also, in the XVI century, Seville became the most important city on Earth! we'll pay a visit to what was the former house of trade.
And to top it all up, the Palace of Peter I ( Peter the cruel, or, the Just. Depending on who's telling the story). A Palace that is a dream, almost straight out of one of Scheherazade's tales.
So overwhelming that when Mr George R.R. Martin visited, he decided this palace and surrounding atmosphere represents the kingdom of Dorne!
We finish the visit with a stroll through the oldest gardens in Seville.
After the tour is over you can stay inside the Palace as long as you wish convenient and visit and revisit the rooms and chamber.

I have a degree in History and Anthropology from the University of Seville. Since I was little, I’ve always felt the need for traveling and exploring the world, so in 2009 I enrolled as a flight attendant for a major Middle Eastern airline and for 8 years I traveled as many countries as I could. I learned and experienced different ways of understanding life. Traveling opens the mind, and if on top of that, if you do part of your journey with locals, then the experience is more complete.

8 years later, after circling the globe so many times, I decide to cut my wings and return to Seville, already with the knowledge acquired and with the language certification, I can say that I am an official licensed guide of the Junta de Andalucía. The tours that I provide I like to think of them as combination of History, description and immersion.

Carlos is deeply knowledgeable about Seville and the Alcazar and made the tour more interesting with amusing anecdotes. Altogether a very enjoyable and interesting tour for all members of the family.

Carlos’ tour of the Alcazar was so worth it! His historical knowledge of the Alcazar and Spain was quite impressive. He helped me to understand the mingling of the moorish, Christian and Jewish cultures of Seville and the part they all played in the original building and the centuries of continued rebuilding of this incredible structure. Also, there are so many little details that have interesting stories that I am quite sure you would not hear even with a purchased self audio tour. Walking through the Alcazar on my own would have been a very nice experience, because there’s so much beauty there…but going through it all with Carlos made this an unforgettable experience. Awesome guide and nice person. I highly recommend this guided tour with Carlos!
