What You Can Expect

Seville In One Day: Santa Cruz Quarter, Royal Alcazar Palace, Seville Cathedral, Royal Maestranza Bullring and River Cruise

Seville In One Day: La Giralda

After a pickup from your central Seville hotel, set out on your full-day sightseeing tour around spectacular Seville – the capital of Spain’s Andalucía region. As you travel by luxury minibus, sit back and relax, listening to your expert guide explain the history of this charismatic city.

Pass Plaza de España – the lavish square in Maria Luisa Park – and learn of its creation for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair. Set in the middle of elaborate Moorish-style gardens, the square was built in a classic Renaissance Revival style, and is now home to several important Government buildings.

As you travel, your guide will point out other top Seville attractions like the Palace of San Telmo and Torre del Oro – an eye-catching building that once held precious metals from America. Continue through Seville’s Santa Cruz quarter and you’ll soon understand why so many describe it as the city’s prettiest neighborhood. Watch out for two UNESCO World Heritage-listed attractions here – Royal Alcazar Palace (or Real Alcazar Palace as it's known in Spain) and Seville Cathedral.

After a break for lunch at your own expense, meet your guide back on board your minibus and then visit the Bullring of the Royal Maestranza. Also known as Plaza del Toros, La Maestranza is widely thought of as the mecca of bullfighting – steeped in history and tradition. After exploring the actual bullring, head inside the bullfighting museum to explore at leisure.

Your afternoon continues with a panoramic tour around Seville’s Triana district – easily the city’s most bohemian and vibrant neighborhood. Pass the Isabel II Bridge and enjoy views across the glistening Guadalquivir River. Before your tour ends back at your hotel, enjoy a 30-minute sightseeing cruise down the river – allowing you to see all the city sights by water as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

The tour was fantastic. The sites we visited were amazing and the guide who accompanied us was a informative and entertaining. I can't wait to return to Sevilla and take another tour with Viator.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Tour was wonderful, but the guide could have talked a little slower and shown a little more enthusiasm,

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Great tour. Very comprehensive. Our guide, Jose Antonio was one of the best.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

Sevilla is a very beautiful city. This tour certainly did justice to it, The morning session was a wow, a memorable time We also did the afternoon, this included the boat trip which was uninteresting. The bullring afterwards did rescue it.
Do the morning, but the afternoon would be improved if the boat sank in advance of you boarding it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about this city, which really made this tour quite enjoyable. While it's very easy to show yourself around town, his narration really made it worth going on the tour.There were two less-than-stellar points; 1) waiting to enter Alcazar and then the amount of time inside the palace - too long. Since these palaces are not furnished like many castles are, the tours can really be much shorter, and become tiring. If I had it to do again, I would end the tour before entering Alcazar, find out when the lines are the shortest and go on my own. 2) The river cruise after lunch has nothing to see but bridges built in 1931 and is very short with rather unsightly scenery. By the time we got to the Bull Ring, we decided to go home and skip it altogether. I do highly recommend the morning portion, though.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2015

This tour had a funny start for us as we were staying in Old Town and had to go to the pick-up destination on the main road where we went from hotel to hotel to pick up the other passengers. When the bus was full, we got off the bus in Old Town, and literally walked past the building we were staying in! The rest of the tour was fine. Enjoyed seeing the Cathedral and the Palace and the river cruise at the end of the day was well timed because it was a long tour and this part was relaxing.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

The Guide Was excellent. Very engaging. The boat ride was not good. I don't think it added anything to the tour- it was for me, a "waste" of one hour.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

The tour itself and the Guide were good. What we were unhappy with was that we rode around in the van for 1 1/2 hours picking up people at all different hotels.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

Seville was indeed beautiful. The sights well selected, the arrangements well-spaced and nicely executed. I was taking the tour with my two teen-aged children and the day managed to hold their interest (which is no small feat with my son!). The only reason I have not rated it five stars was the tour guide who had such a thick Spanish accent as to make her comments very difficult to follow, was in a rush to get through her explanation as fast as possible, and did most of it in Spanish anyway. The only commentary my children enjoyed was the recorded one on the cruise! Otherwise, things went beautifully and I'm glad we decided on the longer 9-hour tour. Nothing less would have done justice to Seville.
