    O barco não apareceu no lugar marcado, liguei no WhatsApp que consta na reserva e até hoje não recebi nenhuma resposta. Pedi reembolso do valor e o pedido está em análise. Tenho foto em frente a Torre del Oro antes do horário.

    Very relaxing and enjoyable river trip. Informative narration along the way. Refreshments – only drinks in cans – would have appreciated wine

    I loved this! We saw so many things! Our guide Antonio was super cool and funny! I suggest you do it because you will go down the Guadalquivil, go see the plaza de toros and also go to the Basilica de la Macarena.

    Andres was an excellent guide on 1 August 2017. He lives locally and knows the area and its history. Highly recommended.

    I would pass on this in the future. The "guides" are not interactive and actually not even seen during the tour. And the river provides very luch life, but that also means you can't see a lot because of the trees. It's fine if you just want a little boat ride.

    The group size was way too big and they had several different types of tours in one group. So the guide had to keep stopping to figure out who had to leave and who stayed. Lots of wasted time! Melissa the guide was great and so was David our bus driver, they just dumped way too much on them! Then we got to the afternoon river cruise and were handed off to Lola. Not friendly or informative. She talked so fast you couldn’t tell when she was switching from Spanish to English. And when asking questions she would get mad at us. We wanted Melissa back!

    Enjoyed the tour with our guide. We were picked up on time and had a full day of sight seeing. The guide Jesus was great. Funny, knowledgeable and entertaining. Interesting thing was after lunch we had to find our way to another pick up point on our own. It was ok for us as we like to walk. Cruise was a bit slow for my liking.
