    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.

    We loved the experience. The guide told us very cool stories that put us fully into the environment of navigation. He even left the helm to our young son to captain the ship himself. The tapas consisted of a place of Iberian ham, olives and chips, accompanied by a soft drink or beer of your choice.

    It has been a magical experience, I recommend it. Eva and Blas are lovely. I gave it to my boy for his birthday, he didn't know what it was going to be and he freaked out. The food is spectacular and very abundant, I couldn't do it all. We will repeat another day for sure

    Croisiere agréable car peu de monde. Les commentaires en français ne sont pas super malgré le bon accent. Je pensais que l'on allait faire le tour de l'ile Cartuja mais en fait on fait juste un aller-retour. Ça vaut les 10€ quand même. Et puis il fait plus frais sur le fleuve que dans les rues!

    This is an absolutely amazing time! Such a sweet staff!!!!! Literally so informative and go out of their way all of the time to give you the best experience. They obviously want their guests to have the best time and truly enjoy Seville. I would recommend this to anyone!!!! Probably one of my best nights here and I am studying abroad here for 4 months.

    Good time to relax after 2 days of visiting. A superb yacht for 1.5 hours of relaxation. Very nice welcome with a drink and its charcuterie accompaniments. A very good moment. Don't expect to see the monuments on the river side, apart from the Golden Tower. But this is not the goal in my opinion, just a break … To do without hesitation.

    We were traveling to Seville and booked the river cruise online. It does not tell you until after you have completed the process and paid, that you need to print the tickets. How are we expected to do that when in an Airbnb with no printer. The man at the office at the boat was extremely rude and would not accept the tickets on my phone. We had to walk back to a travel info office and print , which was not as easy as it sounds. It took forever. This process is a joke. You need to consider the fact that most people doing these activities are traveling and would not have access to a printer.

    For the price of a nice cruise down river in Seville, it was well worth it. The views were fantastic and the boat was a nice break from all the walking you’ll do. Only one bit of advice, bring a light jacket it gets a little chilly once the wind starts blowing.
