The tour was very well organized from the start to finish. Great hotel in every city we visited with amazing breakfasts and dinners. During these 4 days we saw majority of the attractions. I would not recommend only one optional tour in Seville: one hour cruise. It is waste of time and money, but the rest of the optional tours were great. The visit to Royal Alcazar of Seville is not included, but it MUST to see. You have plenty of time to see the Alcazar, but please buy tickets online in advance. The line to Alcazar can be really huge, but with online tickets you will skip it.
Special thanks to our tour guide Grace and driver Victor: they were amazing!
