Hello! My name is María José and I am a lover of Andalusian culture, hence my great desire to share her history with all of you. For me, a tour has to be didactic, of course, but also with a high dose of fun! I love making dynamic guides where visitors participate in explaining the tour and have a good time, this is how you learn best! My main purpose is to transmit the charm that Seville has, enjoy together on the tour by getting lost in its alleys and discovering its secrets, and that you live an unforgettable experience. I wait for you!

About the Tour

Discover the Seville of XV-XVI century walking through alleys that will tell us about the discovery of America as well as about the city monuments. They will tell us stories and legends from an Andalusian city that arrived to the other side of the world knowing so different places like Potosi river or "El Dorado". At the same time, we will go all over the monumental Seville and we will inmerse ourselves in the history, society and culture of the time. We will visit:

-Torre del Oro

-Old coin house

-General Archive of the Indies

-Cathedral of Seville and Giralda

-Colombian library

-Real Alcazar of Seville

-Real Tobacco Factory

-Spain Square

My purpose is giving to the visitor a comprehensive view of the city and, above all, an enriching experience that gives value to the impressive legacy that America left us. I wait for you!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: You will find me just next to Torre del Oro (Golden Tower) with a red umbrella.

The tour was fantastic, I really enjoyed learning this history of Seville, it’s made me want to come back and learn more as Maria made the tour very exciting and interesting. I very much enjoyed her passion for the city and history.

The tour was quite an enjoyable experience that I highly recommend. First of all, our Guru, María José, made the tour very dynamic, and made us all feel as though for those two lovely hours we were a group of friends that have known each other for years; that’s because of the friendly (and always polite) way she treated us all, that made us want to interact, share our own knowledge with everyone... Her English was perfect so if you worry about doing the tour and not being able to understand what’s being said just because the Guru isn’t a native English speaker, fear no more! We learnt so many things! And quite a few fun/interesting facts. The way María explained everything made me want to go to class. There was passion in the way she shared her knowledge with us and that’s quite important, in my opinion, to make a tour dynamic and animated. It was an unique experience and I would definitely repeat it, so stop doubting and make your reservation already! If you do it during summertime, though, keep in mind the hot weather and don’t forget to bring with yourself a water bottle and wear a cap and tons of suncream! Comfortable shoes are important as well.

Response from María José
Thank you so much Nerea! I really appreciate your opinions, they are really important for me in order to improve! For me it was also an incredible and motivating experience! A pleasure! :)

La guía ha sido estupenda, una visita muy dinámica y contaba muchos detalles curiosos, que incluso para gente que es de sevilla suelen ser desconocidos. El recorrido muy ameno, las dos horas se pasan volando. Sin duda volvería a repetir con la misma guía.

Response from María José
¡Muchísimas gracias Clara! He disfrutado muchísimo, ¡me lo pasé genial! ¡Un verdadero placer!
