65th Birthday Girls from Vancouver, Canada
We were 6 women on a 16 day girls trip to Andalucía. Our first stop was 3 days in Seville and Sophia Ventura was recommended to us by friends in Vancouver. From my first email conversation with her 2 months before the trip to when we said goodbye, she exceeded all our expectations. 1. She started by asking about our interests and planned 2 fabulous tours for us - 4 hours one day and 3 the next. She purchased tickets for us ahead of time so that we could avoid line-ups. On day 1 we started out with a traditional Spanish churro breakfast and over the next 2 days visited the Cathedral, the Alcazar, the Plaza España, the beautiful María Luisa Park, the Triana area on the other side of the river, and did lots of interesting walking through the Santa Cruz neighbourhood. 2. Sophia is very well spoken in English and her knowledge of Seville and it’s history is incredible. I recall her mentioning that her father was a history professor and she obviously has a passion for the subject. She is a busy young mom but, in her limited spare time, does a lot of reading to grow her history knowledge and to stay current on what’s happening in her city. 3. We needed help with finding restaurants, booking flamenco and and a variety of other non tour related activities and she went over and beyond in terms if the time she spent with us and the quick responses to our questions prior to our arrival in Seville. In closing, I would like to highly recommend Sophia to you. When you leave Seville you will feel like you have made a lovely new friend.

Great Tour
My husband and I visited Seville in July, 2019. Sofia Ventura was our tour guide, she was wonderful. She explained everything in great detail, she took pictures of us and she even gave us a small gift that we enjoyed so much. I would encourage anyone to choose Sofia as your guide!

Wonderful, easy going, proficient guide
We visited as a family of four with a 4 year old and a 13 year old. Sofia was our tour guide for 2 days and showed us all the major sites of Seville. Her calm and easy going temperament was a hit with the kids. She was very informative and friendly, and patiently took us around town. We highly recommend her to anyone traveling as a family and looking to take in the sites and sounds of Seville :)

love Seville
Alcazar is a must-go in Seville and Sofia has shown us the best part of it. It was such an enjoyable tour. Sofia was so nice to buy tickets for us and communicate with us in advance to understand our interests. She also led us to other interesting parts of the city and recommended good restaurants to us. She speaks very good English. Thank you very much.

Alcazar, Cathedral and so much more
What a fantastic walking tour with Sofia. She’s so knowledgeable, speaks English fluently and is a genuinely lovely lady to spend the day with. I emailed her in advance and discussed my interests and requirements. She made some great suggestions and we agreed on a four and a half hour itinerary. Sofia met me at my hotel and the. We set off to see the old tobacco factory near by, then it was a short walk through the lovely Parque de Maria Luisa. Sofia explained the history and showed me various sections. We were fortune to spot a few ducklings in the pond. After that we went to Plaza de España. It’s quite a sight but o. My own I would have missed a lot of the things she pointed out to me. Sofia had booked our Alcazar tickets in advance and we Roj Ed just in time for our slot. I had not appreciated that there were multiple palaces contracted at different periods. Sofia knew the history of every area we strolled through and linked it to the history of the city. After a stroll through the gardens, we headed over to the Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz where I learnt the legend of Susona, saw the Calle Abuja and got to try Seville’s famous tipple Orange Wine. After a great tapas lunch we had a wander around the city centre before our slot at the Cathedral. We were very privileged to be allowed in first and had the place to,ourselves for a little while. (I’m visually impaired). Sofia again knew the building intimately and was able to not just explain what everything was butbghe history too. My day finished with a short stroll back to my hotel. We’d clocked up almost 12 km but what a day. I rely fletcher I understood the city, it’s history and people after this wonderful and enjoyable tour. My only regret was that I hadn’t arranged it for my first day in the city.

Terrific!!!!
We have just returned from 4 hours with Sophia, who is extremely personable and a wealth of knowledge! She speaks beautiful English and loves her city, Seville. We toured the Alcazar, the Cathedral, the Plaza de Espana, Marie Luisa Park, the Parasol(mushroom), the Church of the Divine Savior and walked through the Jewish Quarter and the main building of the University( an old tobacco factory). She left us at El Rinconcillo( the oldest tapas restaurant in the city) but helped us order first. Before leaving she gave us perfect directions back to our hotel through the 2 main shopping streets we wanted to stroll. She goes at whatever pace you want and likes to tailor her tours to your interests! She can answer any question you ask, be it historical or present day. We HIGHLY recommend Sophia-she is a delight!

A wonderful experience
We booked a private tour of the Alcazar and Cathedral with Sofia as we were concerned some of the traditional tours might not accommodate the slow pace of my elderly mother and we were so glad we did. Sofia was attentive, knowledgeable and really interesting to listen to. She slowed the pace and composition of the tour to suit us and even recommended and helped us book a fantastic flamenco evening at the Flamenco Museum (La Casa Del Famenco) which was superb!. I would thoroughly recommend Sofia and the tour.

Such a lovely tour with Sofia
We happened to be inquiring Sofia about the ticket purchase of Real Alcazar at the its entrance when there is a line with about 30 people. It is not a busy day but we can still see that there could be at least 30 minutes wait. Sofia answered our questions and offered us a tour. As a group of 16 people, we were able to get into the Alcazar immediately without waiting and got an audio equipment per person that allows us to listen to her induction very clearly. She is nice and knowledgeable about the place. At each stop point, we were allowed enough time to walk around and take pictures. After about one hour, the tour was ended in the garden from there we were able to stay and enjoy the sunny afternoon for as long as we want. We felt very grateful to meet Sofia at the first place and thanked her for the pleasant experience she offered.

Reales Alcázares de Sevilla
My daughter and I opted to skip the ticket line and join a private tour with Sofia. I’m so glad we did! We learned a lot about the history of the palace and the architectural elements that make up the complex. I enjoyed learning about Mudajar architecture and the stories behind the portraits and wall hangings. Sofia was engaging and energetic. She clearly delights in her city and its history.

You won't be sorry! Stick with Sofia.
Sofia is gifted with not only a charming temperament but also an intellectual competence and agility that allows her to connect the history, the cultures, the art and architecture, and the story of the gardens seamlessly. She can field any question intelligently and knowledgeably, and she explains the complex dynamics of this incredibly rich setting in an understandable way. Her English is excellent. If you are going to the Alcazar, forego the rote audio script and tour with Sofia. I felt super-fortunate to have lucked into her as my guide. Thank you, Sofia!

Very informative and nice
My family and I were waiting in a queue (apparently we would have to wait for 40 minutes) when she showed up and offered us the tour which meant we would have not to wait in line. It is a very well structured tour and it’s easy to follow along even if you know nothing about Spain’s history. Its about an hour long, but it seem shorter because it’s very interesting, since the history of the castle is explained in enjoyable way, very different from a history class. She speaks very good and clear English, so if your not a native English speaker don’t worry. Thus I recommend it, if I hadn’t bought the tour, I think I would have not enjoyed it so much.

Alacazar and Cathedral of Sevilla
We were lucky enough to get a spot for a small group tour with Sofia for the Cathedral and Alacazar in Sevilla. Not only we were able to skip the long (4 hour long) lines and enter along with the group, Sofia was so professional and her first hand experience with the city and her knowledge about the history and the culture made the tour absolutely fantastic. Even after our return, our teenage boy remembered many facts she had mentioned and we talk about it now and then. She made history interesting! :) I would definitely recommend her.
