What You Can Expect

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Small-Group Walking Day Trip

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Small-Group Walking Day Trip

While you are in port in Cadiz, discover the capital of Andalucia on a shore excursion to Seville. Meet your local guide in front of the Cadiz port and relax on a comfortable minibus during the 60-minute drive to Seville. In Seville, start your small-group walking tour with a visit to the Macarena Walls, and then head to Plaza de España, a jewel of Seville and one of its prettiest plazas. Next, walk down to Maria Luisa Park and admire the mix of 1920s Art Deco and Moorish designs.

Continue to the Baroque palace of San Termo, home to wonderful gardens. Then visit the Cathedral of Seville, the largest Gothic cathedral and third-largest of any church in the world. As you walk around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, visit the tomb of Christopher Columbus, the Capilla Real and the Patio de los Naranjos. Enjoy views of the breathtaking Giralda tower, once the tallest tower in the world and today one of only three remaining Almohad minarets (a mosque spire from the 12th-century Almohad Dynasty).

Take a short break for lunch (own expense) in the Jewish quarter and wander around the labyrinth of narrow streets, originally designed to protect Jews from oppression. Continue to the Santa Cruz quarter, one of Seville's best-known neighborhoods with big mansions, family palaces and flower-covered patios. Then visit the Alcazar, a royal palace that was originally a Moorish fort.

End your walking tour at the oldest bullring in Spain, La Maestranza. Enjoy free time in this area before you make your way back to the Cadiz port.

We had a beautiful day in Seville and although it was a long journey 1.5 hours each way our driver and guide made the trip so enjoyable and it seemed to fly by. Our guide took us to what seemed behind the scenes to show us everything Seville had to offer. We had a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant with our driver and truly experienced so much of what Seville had to offer. Made us want to stay longer.

The guides implored excellent English coupled with a working knowledge of every stop on the tour. Their laidback, no rush attitude made the tour very relaxing, also. We will continue to employ and recommend to fellow travelers off ship tours with Viator.

This tour was exceptional because we had an exceptional guide! We had been to Seville before and had seen the sites he took us to see but his presentation of the history of the places he took us to made the sites come to life for us!

Arry was a wonderful and knowledgable guide. Even though it was raining, she kept her enthusiasm and kept us excited about seeing all of the sights! I was disappointed not to see the Jewish quarter, but there was nothing to be done since the weather wouldn't cooperate. She was excellent though at adapting the day so we could still get the most out of it!

When we received our e-mail confirmations of our tour we were given two locations to meet the guide. Of course we went to the wrong one and almost missed the driver. Thankfully we had saved the e-mails and brought them with us. However, once we found the driver and began the tour it was excellent. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and very knowledgable about the city of Seville. It was a long day but we were glad that we had arranged it. There were only six people on the tour which made it very manageable and a relief from being on previous tours with 30-40 people. We would do it again.

This tour was brilliant! The minibus was waiting for us just a couple of minutes walk away from the port gates, (there were about a dozen other people making their way to Seville for their own tours also), and the guys took us on a brief tour of Cadiz, with plenty of information. Then the comfortable drive of an hour and a half or so to Seville, where our guide, Ariadne, was waiting for us when the minibus arrived. She was absolutely great, extremely knowledgeable and very personable. All in all, superb value - we have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone visiting Seville.

Other than our guide not being there on time, and we were very worried, it turned out to be great. We didn't like the fact that our guide was in Seville, so 1 person met us at the port, then sent us off with a driver, with limited english. Once we met our guide, all concerns were cast away. Dario, I think his name, was fabulous. It was just 3 of us, so it was basically a private tour. We had a great day with him. The driver unfortunately had car problems, and his air conditioning did not work well, so it was a pretty hot drive from Cadiz to Seville and back. I felt very sorry for him, but glad we made it back with no stoppage. Waiting for return trip.....

This was a fabulous tour--far better than those offered by the cruise ship and less expensive too. Anya was a first-rate guide. She was knowledgeable and fluent and had great skill in storytelling. We appreciated the flexibility of being in a small group (only 6 of us) and so we had control over the pace of our tour and the sights that we saw. For lunch, she directed us to an outdoor tapas cafe where she helped with the menu selections so that we could enjoy a terrific lunch at low cost. I would highly recommend this tour. We were very pleased with Sights and Bikes, the tour provider.

It was very interesting seeing the Alcazar fortress and Cathedral of Seville. The trip was approximately 1.5 hours each way from Cadiz port. We were in a very small group of three and our guide Manuelo in Seville was very knowledgable in the history of both sites. However, we spent about 2.5-3 hours at the fortress and Cathedral, way to much time in our opinion and we did not get to see any of the surrounding streets,etc as we had to meet our bus for the return to Cadiz. Our host guide who travelled from Cadiz with our group was excellent! His name is German Lara, he made us feel welcomed and pointed out places from the moment we boarded the bus until we returned. He made the trip worthwhile.
