“Excellent tour to get your bearings”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Did the tour in December with David, we enjoyed it greatly, David was very knowledgable and showed us around the Tirina area...which was very handed when it came to looking for Ceramics. The bookmark provided with a list of translations of some of the main Tapas which was very helpful over the week. Definitely worth doing.

“Take a tour with David”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had just come from Granada, so we were fairly familiar with the tapas culture in Andalucia. Still, we decided to take a tapas tour with David as an introduction to the food scene in Seville. The tour was great; David took us to a number of "local" bars we wouldn't have ventured into otherwise, including the one where his parents met. Since we didn't take any additional paid tours during our time in Seville, David was a great information resource throughout the three-hour tour. People who are already comfortable with the tapas scene, or who speak good Spanish, can probably skip the tapas tour but should definitely take a different tour with David. Our biggest regret is that we didn't do the cooking class with him.

“Wonderful White Villages Tour”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went for a white villages tour with David in Dec and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly - David knew the little local places to visit, the on and off the beaten track spots that makes the trip interesting. He was patient and helpful and a safe and competent driver through the hills! (nobody got carsick!) - I agree with an earlier comment about David being a great host and knowledgeable and very personable - good person to hang out with for the day! David was also very helpful to extend himself to help us book things that were outside of his tour. I recommend David if you are looking for a personalized tour of this area.

“Wonderful and Well Planned Private Tours of Seville and Cordoba”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We were on a whirlwind one week tour of Spain. We wanted to see as much of Cordtoba and Seville in two days in which we departed Madrid early the first morning and arrived in Barcelona at almost midnight of the second day. David and Mahsa planned every minute perfectly. As an aside, I cannot say enough good things about the high speed trains in Spain. The walking tour of Cordoba was excellent, the evening tapas tour and rooftop exploration of Seville was wonderful, but the bicycle tour of Seville was simply perfect. We simply had a marvelous experience and we would recommend David and Mahsa to all.

“Best Kept Secret Tapas Revealed!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

I really wish this tapas tour with David was the first thing I did in Seville, because then I would have known all the best kept secret places to eat in Seville! David was a delightful person who takes his time with his customers. He feels more like a friend than a service provider. He has a warm and sweet personality and ladies, he is very easy on the eyes! We ate amazing food, we drank amazing drinks, we laughed, we saw a little show and went home happy and satisfied!

Thank you David for making my stay at Seville really special!
