Skip this tour and save yourself lots of money
Liz_F

At the meeting place we were told that the booking didn’t include entry to the Cathedral! We had to fork up an additional €22 there and then, or we would have lost the €40 we paid for the tour through Viator. According to the representative, you are paying to skip the queue. But there was no queue - people were walking in and out freely (I took photos that show this, but I can’t figure out how to attach photos to this review). We feel so cheated - we ended up paying over €60 for something that should have cost €26 (entry to the cathedral is €9, and the headset for self-guided tours are €4). Plus, the Viator tour only lasted an hour, and with the cathedral headsets we could have spent as long as we liked at each point of interest. Please don’t be taken in by the “skip the queue” malarkey - take this tour yourself, and save yourself a bundle.

Good afternoon. We are sorry for your disappointment, but at no time is there any deception. When you book the tour at all times you are told that you pay for the guide and that the entrance fees are not included, up to three times within the description you put the same text, on the other hand, the entrance fee to the Cathedral is 10 ? at all official places not 9 ? as you put, please you can look at the official website, at the entrance to the monument etc. You can stay as long as you want inside the points of interest, our tour is about 75 minutes, but once the tour is over you can take hours inside the monument. We value your opinion, but at no time do we deceive or hide or manipulate the truth. Read what you hire. Thank you very much for your opinion

Tammy_P

We had a very disappointing experience with the cathedral tour. It was especially unfortunate, because we did a morning tour of the Alcazar that was phenomenal. First off, nowhere in any of our paperwork was it disclosed that we had to pay any additional fees for entry. Not only did we have to pay an additional 40 euros, but the tour was over an hour late partly because EVERYONE was complaining about the extra non disclosed fees and extremely disorganized. In addition, our tour guide spoke very poor English. She kept referring to her cell phone before each exhibit, spoke in a monotone, and was unable to really answer any additional questions. We could have done better on our own with a lot less cost and frustration.

A must do in Seville. Tour guide added so much to experience.a LOT easier than flipping thru a book. You can't ask an audio guide for more info. Guide doesn't take you to top if tower but that's isn't necessary. Well worth cost

The cathedral was beautiful and we booked a tour in English. Thee guide's accent was so strong none of us we were a group of10 friends/ family could understand much of what she said. I didn't get her name. There was a lot of confusion about purchasing tickets. No one explained that students had free admission and the kids that didn't have school ID's had to pay. Would have brought the id's had I known. All in all could have done just as well, or maybe better w/ a guide book.

Definitely worth taking a tour of the cathedral - skip the queues and learn about things you might otherwise miss! I found the ear-piece commentary a bit too loud and a little uncomfortable. The climb up the Giralda tour is one of those things you have to do - but wouldnt recommend if youre unfit!

I would rate this no stars if i could. Our tour was supposed to start at 2:30 pm, but didn't start until 3:06 pm. A representative from the tour group was at the meeting place to check our vouchers at 2:30 but didn't say a word about why we were waiting. Apparently we were waiting for the tour guide. The tour was cut short at 4:00. Cathedral employees said we had to leave at 4:00 and escorted everyone out. Our tour guide said the Cathedral was supposed to be open until 5:00 and didn't understand why we had to leave early. The tour was supposed to include going to the top of the Giralda Tower, which was the main reason we took the tour, but because the Cathedral closed early we were unable to do that. Lastly, the tour guide was impossible to understand. I actually felt sorry for her. She does not have the english speaking skills to conduct tours. This was the worse tour experience we had while in Spain. Waste of time and money.
