Seville is a lovely and beautiful city that you could spend several days in. The drive itself is also very nice with all the olive trees. The guide did everything she could to keep the whole team together. There were a lot of people in town that day so it was hard for her, but she did well. We didn't join the fjord trip, so we have that to our credit.

Very good tour. You should consider organizing the transport of the participants more individually, because we were the first and last on the bus and therefore an additional 4 hours (pickup and return transport of the participants) on the way and therefore from 5:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the tour.

Journey to little Cordoba with pickup from Malaga. You get off the bus before the entrance bridge to the historic center and visit the monumental Cathedral Mosque, the highlight of the visit, then the guide tibporta through the alleys of the town.
