My boyfriend and I were visiting Seville for 3 days and wanted to make the most out of it.

Not Just A Tourist is giving you the experience, that the name already promises: you see and get to know the city from a local and authentic perspective. We booked three packages: Walking Tour, Tapas Tour in Triana and Cooking Class.

David was the best guide you can imagine. With his knowledge about Seville and Spain in general, personal anecdotes and broad set of skills (flamenco dancing, cooking, bicing, historical knowledge etc.) you will for sure never get bored with him.
We had a great time and don't regret a second! In total, we spent 8,5 hours with David (2,5 hours Walking Tour, 3 hours Tapas Tour and 3 hours Cooking Class)...

We are very sad, that they are not present in every city of Europe (YET)!!!

BTW, to write this review was the first good reason for us to create a TripAdvisor account ;-)

My Mum and i had a geat evening doing the tapas tour with David. David is a great host - friendly, considerate, entertaining, informative and warm. We ended up doing the tour with a lovely family from South America whose English was way better than our non- existent Spanish and David handled the bilingual tour with aplomb. The food was great, the wine was good and the company was excellent. We went to bars we wouldnt normally wouldnt have found and tried tapas we wouldn't have otherwise tried. David is a local and happily answered all our questions about life in Seville. I'd unreservedly recommend any of the tours conducted by Not Just A Tourist - a great way to experience the wonderful city of Seville.

We booked a rooftop tour with David in March. We were hoping that the weather will be sunny during our tour. However, it was raining heavily for the first hour of the tour. Luckily, David was prepared! He had an extra umbrella on him which made walking under the rain bearable.

David informed us that some of the rooftops will be closed due to weather condition but two of them will be opened. Instead of having a rooftops tour only, we had a walking tour around the Jewish quarter and around the Cathedral and Alcazar. It was very enjoyable. The two rooftops were lovely. Luckily, the sky started clearing up and we were able to have a beautiful view of Seville.

We had drinks at our last rooftop stop with David. He is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed talking to him and getting to know him. The tour was supposed to end at 6pm but since we were asking David many questions, he stayed until 7:30pm. David’s food recommendations were the best by far during our trip to Andalusia. We e-mailed him few times after the tour asking for recommendations for food and activities (Granada and Madrid) and he was very helpful. Next time we visit, we will make sure to do the Triana tapas tour with him.

The tour is very affordable and you get way more than what you pay. It is totally worth it and we both are glad that we went on it. Not Just a Tourist takes away from the typical touristy area and you end up seeing Seville from a different view. I would totally recommend David and Not Just a Tourist to anyone visiting Seville. By far, one of the most genuine tour guides we ever had.

Just spent an excellent day out with David exploring the beauty of the Donana nature reserve, eating a great seafood lunch at the beach and horse riding with the family (on the beach and in the dunes).

From the minute David picked us up and drove us South, he was an excellent host, and made a real effort to make sure we all had a great day. The kids loved the horse riding and the bird spotting.
If you are looking for an alternative day out, with a local Spanish host - choose NJAT. You won't be disappointed.
