Marvel at The Giralda, a former Arabic minaret that was converted to the cathedral’s bell tower. Get privileged views of the old city walls, and go to the Alcázar, the exquisite royal palace and former Moorish fort. Stroll down medieval alleys to the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz. Gaze across at the bell towers of more than 60 churches, and see some of the city’s contrasting modern architecture, including bridges over the River Guadalquivir.
To top off your tour, your guide will take you to the famous Metrosolparasol or the “Mushrooms”, one of the most avant-garde spaces right in the heart of the old city.

This was a fantastic tour! Saira was our brilliant guide for the evening and we had a great time with her, the Australian couple and also the trainee guide. Saira had so much knowledge and tailored the tour ideally to what we wanted to know. Fantastic views at each location as well as learning a lot about Seville’s history and religion. The tour through the Jewish area was particularly interesting. This is a must do tour for anyone visiting Seville!

Very good tour indeed. Jesus was a great guide, spoke excellent English and showed us views of Seville that were breathtaking. His knowledge of the history and architecture of the city was extensive and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to see the city from a different view.
Excellent roof top tour. Very knowledgable guide, Jesus. Really informative and entertaining. Would highly recommend to all.
Our guide Jesus was delightful and such a pleasure to spend a few hours with. He took us to some wonderful rooftop places off the beaten track with amazing city views. Highly recommended.

The ‘Rooftop tour’ was … fantastic! Two hours from a perspective – human, historical and height-wise – which immediately made us love the place and the people, despite our faltering first steps at speaking the language. Thanks for being so interesting and interested, Jesús!

A bike tour at 122 degrees F was not exactly what we had in mind when we booked it, but we pedaled on, aided by the exuberant guide, Sarah. Result: an “out of the box” experience. The rooftop tour w Sarah was equally fun and interesting. The “non touristy” Flamenco show was…touristy. If you make careful choices you will be rewarded w this fine service.

Hi! My friend and I ended up with a private tour of the rooftops of Seville at 8:30 pm at night ( PERFECT time during the hot season). The views were AMAZING and our guide Javi was absolutely lovely! He gave us so much information and offered for us to reach out to him with any questions during our stay and in other cities of Spain. I highly recommend their rooftop tours – its not like anything you’ve done before!
Great Tour! We had experienced a beautiful view from the fanciest hotels near the Cathedral. Also, the guide chose some hidden places to see the sunset.She with us her knowledge about the history of the city and some interesting curiosity. We finished our tour on a beautiful rooftop having an included drink. Really recommended! And… of course I’ve taken the most breathtaking sunset pictures.
We booked this tour last Saturday afternoon. NJaT was proactively reaching out via Whatsapp (very convenient!) about a change of time, to accommodate for the weather. Nice personal touch!
Our guide Franci was amazing. German originally, her English was perfect and her knowledge if Seville blew us away. Besides, she was very friendly and accommodating, and definitely taking her time for us, in no rush at all.
This rooftop tour is absolutely worth it. The views from the rooftops are stunning, and Franci took us to places we never would have found on our own. She also took us to places which we had ‘already had seen’ (we thought) but she was then pointing out details about the sites & building which we had totally overlooked.
Bottom line: if you have only a few days in Seville and you want to have a fabulous 2-3 hours roaming around and see it all, then this tour is the a must-do!
We had a lovely time with our guide Francesca as she took us to bars and terraces on the highest floors of different hotels. Nice, personable, enthusiastic guide who told us the funny facts of this city’s history any tourist want to know about. To be recommended.
The rooftop walking tour of Seville was a great experience. We had a wonderful guide who was very informative. We felt very fortunate to be on a small personal tour as we saw hoards of large groups tromping around. We did this tour our first day in Sevilla and got great recommendations for the rest of our stay. Highly recommend.
This was a 2 hour tour and absolutely fantastic. Our guide was a local girl Estelle who was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. There was just my husband and I on the tour which made it feel very private. We had already taken a 3 hour tour earlier that day so I was dreading having to climb up lots of stairs etc but to my relief we took lifts to the top of the various rooftops. The rest was at ground level so it was great. She also covered different things to what we had done earlier. We would definitely recommend this tour for people of all levels of ability.
I got to say that it was an amazing tour with the a very accommodating tour guide. I normally don’t write reviews, but this time I ‘d like to do it as it was a very friendly experience. With my family of 4 adults and 1 kid we took a rooftop tour and a tapas tour with lau,. It was a very nice half a day we spent with her and enjoyed amazing food and views. Top experience!
This tour was such fun! You must get Sara as a guide! She is precious! She had so much energy, great stories and incredible knowledge of this beautiful city! We felt as though we’d been friends for life at the end of our tour!! Even though “sunny Seville” was cloudy and rainy, Sara made the beginning our trip fantastic! On our subsequent tour, we knew more about the cathedral than the guide! It’s not so much a rooftop tour, although you do go on 3 rooftops, but a short tour of the city! You will not be disappointed with Sara as your guide!!
very simple. they were available from the first phone call to the last random questions we had… the tour around seville through the neighborhood and rooftop experience was magnificent, educational and active… Everyone from David who runs NJAT to tour guide around the city were extremely helpful. they did hesitate to help us with any advice and recommendations even if it didn’t involve their company. they were just happy to help! their genuine generosity made our trip… we even had drinks together at the end of our tour and they secretly left us a surprise treat to celebrate our anniversary. Thoughtful, helpful and educational… Not just a tourist is the way to go. Enjoy!
Really friendly visit with a small group. Tourist guide really frendly and close to the Group. She explained a lot “of small things” that make the difference. We did no feel the pressure of the time. Really enjoyed.
