We did a virtual tour of the Legends of Sevilla. Juan did a great job of bringing the stories to life. It was great to see photos taken of the key places during the past month so that you really have a sense of how the city is currently looking and feeling. Juan is very knowledgeable about the history of Sevilla and, just as importantly, the legends. If you have never visited Sevilla, you will definitely want to go after this tour!

We just took a GREAT tour of parts of Seville led by Juan! We've been to Barcelona, Malaga, Valencia, and Madrid but that was years ago. This one we took from our living room via Zoom and it was one of the most interesting tours we've taken in a long time. There were over two dozen people on this tour and Jaun made it interesting, informative, and fun for everybody! He gave us a lot of detail that explained how and why things happened throughout the history of the area. We highly recommend this tour and Juan as a fantastic guide! He covered everything from orange trees, to how some streets got their names, to the crocodile, elephant tusk, and fabric hanging overhead! Every question that we asked was answered with knowledge and insight.

We had an extraordinarily memorable visit to this museum with Juan, who is an excellent guide and storyteller. As other reviewers mention he is personable, enthusiastic, and deeply knowledgeable. More than that, he helps bring the artwork to life before your eyes, revealing details about the artwork most visitors would never see during an unguided visit. And rest assured, no prior knowledge of art history is needed -- we knew very little about Spanish art before this visit, but left the museum feeling totally inspired. Truly worth every penny, and more. Thank you, Juan!

My visit to this museum was so special as a had the chance of having a remarkable tour guide, Juan. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and fun. I really enjoyed his detailed descriptions and explanations of every single piece of art hi selected for me to know about. He provided extra information by answering my questions and at the same time made me think and discover art details I had not paid attention to before. Juan was personal and friendly, which added an element of joy to the whole experience. I highly recommend him as a guide to get to know the art history of Seville!!! Thank you, Juan!!!
