Cruise Critic Review: Ellen (US) - Cruise Tour Roll Call to Seville from Cadiz: We
used Cadiz and Beyond to go to Seville from Cadiz and we found them to
be excellent and reliable. We had 27 people from our cruise on this tour
so we had a full size very comfortable coach. They also have vans or
mini buses for smaller groups. They had an escort with us for the entire
day and also had a guide from Seville meet us there and give us a 4
hour walking tour. Both the escort and guide were excellent. We then had
some free time on our own to have lunch. It was a very nice day. I
would highly recommend this company.
Cruise Critic Review: David (US) - Cadiz to Seville Day Tour: For our stop in the port of Cadiz, we had pre-arranged a private tour of Seville with Cadiz & Beyond, a company that I found on the Cruise Critic boards and which turned out to be an excellent choice. My email communications with the company went smoothly; questions were answered promptly, and for this tour we had pre-paid the full cost in advance, unlike our tours in France and Italy. The timing for the day was already going to be tight, because of the 1.75-hour drive each way between Cadiz and Seville; to our amazement, however, the ship arrived almost 45 minutes late into port, the only time that happened and, of course, it had to be the one day we needed all the time we could get, and so we – and all the other passengers heading for Seville (including those on RCI-sponsored tours) – were very pressed for time. Cadiz & Beyond really made the most of our time. They provided a mini-bus for the 6 of us, so we were able to spread out in comfort for the drive. We also had an English-speaking tour coordinator in addition to the driver, and so we learned quite a bit about Cadiz and the area between Cadiz and Seville. Upon arrival in Seville, we were met by a licensed, English-speaking guide who joined our tour coordinator and our group for the walking tour of central Seville. This included visits to the Alcazar Palace and its extensive gardens; the magnificent Cathedral, and the Jewish Quarter, with its maze of narrow streets and alleys and hundreds of shops. In order to see everything, and visit the shops, we passed up lunch and stopped briefly for ice cream. The walking tour and drive into and out of the central part of the city gave us a real taste of a beautiful city – and despite the truncated port day, we were very happy we had the opportunity to visit Seville.
