Let's experience the main river of Andalusia and enjoy the most beautiful city in Spain! I am a full-time official tour and mountain guide, I have been working in Seville and Andalucia for the last five years. I have been working in the main monuments and the most unspoilt rivers of Andalusia. In my experience as a tour guide and in life, I understand that each person is unique and what is fast for one can be slow for others. One of my skills is to quickly get to know people and develop a fluid and open communication to understand their needs and adapt the tour to them. I am a geographer and interpreter of landscape. I am very enthusiastic about my homeland which I feel a deep affinity for, however, I also love the world so I have lived in more than eight countries: Poland, Denmark, Malta, France, Morocco, India, Perú, Israel-Palestine and Turkey. I was teaching, researching and attending academic courses about history, geography and antropology around the world. Furthermore, I love traveling and I have visited more than 50 countries in Europe, Africa, America and Asia. My experiences abroad have contributed to my personal growth, giving me the tools to better understand various cultures; widening my horizons, understanding history and culture from different points of view. All of those factors enable me to understand the needs of my customers and deliver them an unforgettable experience. My tours are designed on my academic background. Geography, History and Anthropology are the disciplines that have influenced the content of my speeches and let me interpretate the historic and cultural heritages of my country. I hold a Degree in Geography and History as well as an MA in tourism and another in Spanish Language Teaching. I also attained a Mountain Guide certification. I love to show the most authentic and deep part of my homeland same as I like to rediscover Spain as a tourist. Seville and Andalucía hold some of the most spectacular monuments and sceneries on earth. I will lead you in an original way to hidden, secret places of this beautiful territory. You will return with valuable and lasting memories in your suitcase to treasure and share with your friends and family. Come and experience the world with new eyes and continue exploring the beauty around us. You can choose the language of your tour: French, German or Chinese. Tell me what is your priority and I will customize your tour. ENJOY YOUR STAY IN ANDALUSIA AND KEEP TRAVELLING!

About the tour

Discover the Guadalquivir of Seville during the night with a 2-hour kayak ride. Admire the main illuminated attractions of Seville from the river while you enjoy a quiet kayak experience when there is no traffic on the river. You will get a different point of view of the city, at the same time you work. We will visit the historical places of the American commerce and the trip of Magallanes. The Torre Dorada, the historic lighthouse, the Triana neighborhood, the place where many flamenco singers were born or the monastery of the Cartuja where Columbus lived for a while, have a dramatic aspect from the riverbank. Our river is the natural and historical button of the river that has been transformed into the inner pier, therefore, the displacement in the kayak is quite easy and safe because there is no water current.

The cost of the rental of the material is € 15 but the cost for guiaros through the river will be a free tour model, based on tips :)

It was a great tour and a very novel experience to do it all from a kayak!

The equipment was all in excellent condition and the river was peaceful - no need to be any sort of athlete to be able to enjoy the trip! It was all very easy to pick-up and Manuel was at hand to answer any questions. He went at a nice pace to give you the time to take some fun photos and enjoy the gentle breeze on the river, and pointed out the key spots along the way. I loved being able to be active while also learning about the city from someone who makes the city's history so tangible and interesting .. it felt like a mini-adventure!

Unfortunately Manuel somehow thought the booking time was 6:30.

Response from Manuel Ramón:

I am really sorry about the misunderstanding. I ask that people confirm they will be coming prior to 6:30 and I hadn't received any message for this tour. Nevertheless, I have updated the meeting time so that now it is clearer.

The kayaking was a lot of fun. Manuel was very friendly and helpful. The kayak and equipment were in very good condition. There were changing rooms and showers available too.

A couple of points that could improve the tour are: Manuel could project his voice a little louder as sometimes it was hard to hear what he was saying on the river. A little more information could have been provided at a few of the stops along the way.

Overall it was a pleasant evening on the river.
