About Our Team

Sevilla Walking Tours was born as a one person company in 1999. Being awared of how difficult to tourist is was to find their way in town, good places where to eat, or the best shops to look at, we decided to design a tour which was both informative and entertaining and which could combine all those tips which can make a difference when visiting a city.

Now we are a team of three, but keep on working with the same philosophy, energies and love for our city. We are official licensed guides and natives, happy to show you around.

Concepción

I was born in Sevilla and spent my whole life in this city. Got my degree in Tourism and worked in different fields of the Tourism world, Tour Operatours, Travel Agencies, Hotels…

After realizing that the most enjoyable part of my work was dealing with travellers, I decide to become a tour guide. Studied, passed the exams and got my guiding license in 1999. I have been leading tours since and enjoying it every day.

I love sharing the city history with visitors but particularly enjoy talking about its life, food, cutiosities and whatever people find interesting and vital for their Sevilla experience.

Jose Alfonso

I  was born in Sevilla in 1974. At the age of 2 I went to USA with my parents and we spent two years in Madison. My father was researching at the University of Wisconsin. Maybe it is connected or not but I am a cheese fan nowadays and I love the music of Prince, who was preparing his first album when I was there,so close to Minneapolis.

After that we lived in the countryside, in a big farm outside Sevilla until we moved to the city and I started studying Middle Ages History for five years at the University. In 1999 I created my own company of tours and I got the official licence for guiding tours in 2001. I like giving personal tours and show the visitors not only what you see outside the monuments but I like to talk about the inside life of the city and the locals. I love guiding what we call “The hidden Seville”, cloister convents, legends, old tapas bars …

 I was born in Sevilla in 1970 and spent my life outside the big city, in a small town very close to the countryside.  Since then, my reminds are rice fields and olives trees and the bleating of the wild bulls and the croaking of frogs.  However not very far away there was a city smelling different; smelling Azahar.  And I discovered Sevilla when I decided to study tourism there.

During my studies I had several working experiencies in different sectors of tourism industry, such as hotels, travel agencies, conferences or hostesses…

Soon I found out that I wanted to show this beautiful city to the World. Therefore, I became an official tour guide in 1996. And I had the opportunity to work with visitors from all around the world and know the particularities of each.I love sharing our history with them, also our present everyday life and traditions.
