This is a nice walking trip through Sevilla. Both locals and foreigners will enjoy learning about the history of the city, from the ancient Roman origins until the Americas times. There are some key spots where you'll wear the glasses to see some short films, some fact cards, and a couple virtual reconstructions. If you like learning about the history of old cities like Sevilla, you'll definitely like this your. I misses a bit more virtual reconstructions, though.

We booked a tour in english, but our guide introduced her by saying she doesn't speak english well. Wonder why it was decided that she does the tour. As it turned out, she spoke excellent english, and guided us through town very friendly. The use of the "smart glasses" doesn't make any sense. They're pretty old models, without any smarts except simple orientation sensors. They're uncomfortable and heavy while walking around, and all the cables hanging around are annoying. It is clear, that the glasses are just used to attract people to the tour. Not actually delivering something that uses smarts of such glasses is at least misleading. In the same way is what's called VR just simple panoramas. The content shown on the glasses has good visual quality and is informative. But I definitely would have preferred to see it on a big screen of a smartphone instead of the small screen of the glasses. Also, I learned much more about Sevilla during the two free tours I participated in. Because of this, and because of being misled, I don't recommend this tour, but one of the so called free tours instead.

Good morning Michael, Thank you very much for your comments. At Past View Experience we try our best for our customers to enjoy our tour, and we take all comments on a constructive way to improve our service. Replying your review: Language: The assistant that guided you is bilingual in French, as she is not in English she always introduces herself saying her English is not so well, but, as you mentioned, her level is quite good, thank you! Devices and smart glasses: We apologize that your expectations with the last version on smart glasses in the market was higher. Smart glasses are semi transparent because customers are in the city, not a closed area so customers can enjoy the heritage they are visiting. We are sorry that you would prefer a big screen of a smartphone as pictures we are sharing in all the platforms and channels are our smart glasses. Most of our customers consider more important images of the heritage in different moments of the history than the explication. Of course it depends on the own customer what they prefer, but we are bounded to explain that not all customers are completely satisfied with the usual tour when they have the option to see how the heritage was. We would like to invite you to send us any mail is you consider you would like to add something else to your review. Just let us know and we will provide a mail contact. Best regards and we wish you Merry Christmas,

I booked this tour not knowing what to expect and it was great! My guides were friendly and gave me lots of interesting facts as we walked around Seville. The glasses are fab! Very clever and clear, they transport you back in time so you feel you are with them and the added audio brings it alive. Definitely recommend this

Highly recommended, as the two hour tour provides a cross- secretion of the city's colorful and varied history. My tour guide was very attentive and knowledgeable (she is a professional in historic artifact restoration). Must do.

By far one of my favorite walking tours with my awesome personal guide, Crispu! The views from the top of the Metropol Parasol were incredible and I was fortunate to do both the Seville and Metropol tours back to back! I highly recommend anyone visiting to check it out while in town. Also, it's important to remember to have realistic expectations. If you're expecting to be teleported in a phone booth to that actual era like in "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure"...think again. Also, consider the cost. There's a shorter tour for 10 euros or the longer one for 20 euros. Now if you were being charged double that I can understand being dissapointed but the reality is that it's a great experience for the price you pay with very knowledgeable tour guides.Lastly, the equipment is only going to get better...not everything is going to be perfect but it will improve as time goes on and more cities start incorporating these tours. I should know because I live in Silicon Valley in the San Francisco/Bay Area where technology is no joke and constantly advancing.
