Holy Week is the most important celebration of each year in Seville. The city prepares throughout the year for these religious processions, which last a week.

¡Nos encantó el tour! A pesar de ser de Sevilla, hay muchos datos de la Semana Santa que aún desconocía. Álvaro es ameno, muy culto y adaptó el tour a nuestras dudas y necesidades. Lo recomiendo muchísimo.

La experiencia fue magnífica de principio a fin. Álvaro es una enciclopedia andante de Sevilla y sus costumbres, y las escalas del tour fueron en todo momento reforzadas por sus explicaciones y anécdotas históricas. Sin duda, una experiencia recomendable para todos a los que les gustaría conocer la Semana Santa de Sevilla. Ojalá introduzcas nuevas rutas por la ciudad para cuando volvamos a visitar Sevilla, Álvaro!!

Tour muy completo, ameno, con abundante y variada información, no solo sobre la historia de la Semana Santa, sino también sobre su actualidad, la ciudad, etc. Recomendable.

Un gran paseo por un lugar que esconde más historia de la que parece. Sin ser unos aficionados en exceso de la Semana Santa de Sevilla, Álvaro consiguió engancharnos con sus explicaciones y anécdotas. Además de lo ameno que se nos hizo el tour, nos recomendó sitios para comer, cenar, e incluso merendar por los alrededores ¡Una bonita experiencia!

Response from Álvaro
Gracias por sus palabras. Un placer guiarles por mi ciudad.
