Reviewed December 1, 2015

I arranged a private tour with Not Just a Tourist after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, and I was not disappointed. Our tour guide was Nestor Ramos, and he was terrific, which was a good thing since we spent 7 hours with him! Seville is a very beautiful, walkable city, and Nestor made sure we saw the most important and lovely sites. We visited the Cathedral and the Alcazar, which rival Alhambra in beauty. We also saw the Plaza de Espana, Parque de Maria Luisa, and the old tobacco factory. Two highlights for me were the stop for a coffee in the morning and afternoon tapas in Triana, a very picturesque section of Seville. In both cases he took us to local cafes for a real feel of the city. After 7 hours we were tired, happy, and in possession of countless great photographs. Thanks Nestor!

Our travel agent booked us a half day walking tour with tapas tasting with this company.

Seville with only 700,000 inhabitants is a very walkable city and David our guide led us on a wonderfully leisurely 2-3hr walk around the main sights. In the most popular areas it's easy to suddenly find yourself surrounded by tourists but David would cleverly and swiftly steer us down a small Calle and we were on our own again, yet not missing out on anything but seeing even more than the crowds.

David is very knowledgeable; informative with just enough facts but without it sounding like a history lesson. It is more like a friend showing you around their much loved city. After three hours we walked over the river into Triana, the area David had chosen for our tapas tasting. He took us to three places, each time ordering several tapas wtih a different local drink to accompany. It was a brilliant introduction to the wonderful city of Seville and the Sevillan way of tapas ordering and eating.

We would definitely recommend this company to anyone visiting Seville and will definitely contact them again on our next visit. They offer various other guiding options including olive oil tasting which sounds fascinating.

The tour took us to Ronda and a couple of the white villages in between. We had a great time with Nestor. He was very engaging. He took time to show us nature, history, and the Spanish culture. It was a long day, but well worth it.

We had such a great evening with David doing the Triana Tapas tour! Let him order for you and you will have a wonderful meal and leave with a greater understanding of all that Spanish food and drink has to offer. Definitely a highlight of our trip! Wish we had time to do more tours with this company.
