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.

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.

This was too much in one day. The time at the bullring and the cruise was perfect, but should have MUCH more time at the Cathedral and/or the Quarter. We thought we'd have time to go back by ourselves on another day, but we couldn't fit that in any other day. It was beautiful, but rushed.
