Get an introduction to the ancient port city of Cadiz on this half-day, small-group shore excursion, limited to 7 guests. After your cruise ship docks, head out to explore Cadiz aboard a climate-controlled minivan. See Cadiz Cathedral and other landmarks like Puerta de Tierra, and then continue to nearby Jerez, a city famed for its wine and Andalucian horses. Visit the Moorish fortress of Alcazar and watch an Andalucian horse show before recharging with tapas and sherry at a local ‘bodega’ (wine bar).
  • Cadiz and Jerez sightseeing shore excursion
  • Take in views of Cadiz landmarks like the Puerta de Tierra and the Cadiz cathedral from your minivan
  • Visit the city of Jerez to watch a horse show at its renowned equestrian school
  • Sample tapas and several wines, including Jerez's famous sherry, at a local bodega (included)
  • Wander around Jerez's historical city center with your guide and visit the Alcazar
  • Small-group tour ensures personalized attention from your guide
  • Covered by Viator's worry-free policy: guaranteed on-time return to your ship
After greeting your guide in Cadiz port, you’ll climb aboard an air-conditioned coach and embark on a panoramic sightseeing tour of Cadiz. As you learn of the city’s 3,000-year-old history, you’ll pass landmarks such as Cádiz Cathedral, Plaza España and the ancient Castillo de Santa Catalina.

Continue your journey to Jerez — a city famed for its fine wines and impressive horses — to explore its abundance of historical monuments. On a guided walking tour, you’ll visit the 11th-century Moorish fortress, Alcazar, before settling down to watch a 1.5-hour show at Jerez’s prestigious equestrian school.

After marveling at choreographed routines performed by humans and horses, head to a local bodega to sample sherry, Jerez’s primary beverage. Take a tour of bounteous vineyards, learn of the sherry-making process and then pleasure your palate with samples of sherry and tapas.

Conclude your shore excursion with some relaxed free time in Jerez before making your own way back to Cadiz port.

In the rare event that there is no horse performance scheduled the day of your tour, you will instead learn about the traditional Andalucian horse training at a renowned equestrian school.

This Tour Operator Stood Us Up with This Pre-Paid Excursion and it's Totally Over-Priced (a Rip Off)!
, May 2019
This was 1 of the most expensive excursions of the trip. Yet we paid it thinking that the Tour Operator had been carefully screened by Viator, was trust worthy and was charging fairly. Their excuse for not showing up was that there was no Horse Show on the day we were there (Wednesday). However, they knew this because the shows at this Equestrian Center have been scheduled for Tuesdays & Thursdays ONLY for a very long time. They knew we could not go any other day because we were on a Cruise. They still took our money (over $200!). A Cab Driver took us to the same Equestrian Center (which was spectacular and worth seeing even without the show), for a tour of the city and a Spanish lunch at a lovely bay front restaurant (at our request). He only charged us $135 (round trip) and we paid $11 per person for admission to the Equestrian Center and the lunch (which we also treated him to). He saved the day!

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Day Trip with Skip the Line Real Alcazar and Cathedral

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Day Trip with Skip the Line Real Alcazar and Cathedral | Jan 2020
I took a my 40 year old daughter for her birthday on a cruise with Cadiz being one of our ports. It was January 1st and everything in the city was closed; even the tourist company where we were to meet. When we called the numbers on our voucher we did not connect with anyone. We were informed the company was permanently closed. I will call my credit card company and request a full refund.

Cadiz Shore Excursion to Seville

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Self-Guided Seville | Oct 2019
Don't take this excursion. Booked and sent 3 emails to tour operator, requesting timing. No answer - until I had already left. I had given the name of my cruise ship and arrival/departure times. On arrival at Cadiz exited the port and there was no one waiting, no-one I asked had heard of the tour company.. Tried calling the number listed on the ticket and it was disconnected! After a wait of 2 hours gave up.

What a terrible experience! This company doesn't exist! We walked to the meeting point indicated on the voucher and even the lady working at the tourism office in Cadiz told us that there is the same problem - nobody came to pick up tourists...The phone numbers we called (both international and local) are not in service! The cruise ship Celebrity Reflection tried to help us by sending 2 E-mails but no answer. So we never took the prepaid trip spending the day waiting and looking for your company. We are asking a full refund because you were not able to provide the service

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Day Trip with Skip the Line Real Alcazar and Cathedral | Sep 2019
After booking this tour, we found out that the operator has a bad reputation for not showing up for their tours. We tried to contact the operator the day before to confirm, but they did not answer phone and there was no voicemail. Also text messages through this app went unanswered. When we showed up at the appointed time and place, sure enough the guide did not show. Viator should remove them from their website.

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Day Trip with Skip the Line Real Alcazar and Cathedral | Aug 2019
We booked this tour along with my sister and brother in law for one of our cruise stops. Viator confirmed the tour and we printed off tickets. When I looked at the ticket after we started our cruise I realized they hadn’t confirmed a time. My brother in law had internet and tried contacting Sights and Bikes tour to confirm a time, they never responded. We went to the meeting spot in Cadiz the morning of our tour and they never showed up. We tried calling,our cruise staff tried and so did viator but they did not answer. So we were left high and dry.

Disaster Tour

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Day Trip with Skip the Line Real Alcazar and Cathedral | Jun 2019
This tour was a disaster from start to finish. First, we didn't have a bus and had the tour directed had to call and find out where it was, which put us getting started about 20 mins late. Once we arrived at our destination, we didn't have a tour guide to take us into the church. The lady who rode on the bus with us, killed time by walking us around the city for 45 mins until our tour guide showed up to take us into the church. While our lady was walking us around, she kept walking away from the group and using her phone. We were supposed to have skip the line tickets, but there was an issue and we had to wait in line, cutting out time short. On this tour, we were supposed to get to see 3 locations, have free time and lunch. We ONLY got to see 2 locations, no free time and no lunch. We didn't even have time to stop and get a drink. This tour was a disaster and we were shorted our time in the city and our experience. Very BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! We made it back to the ship with 10 mins to spare, which was very stressful.

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Day Trip with Skip the Line Real Alcazar and Cathedral | Jun 2019
I could tell this tour was going to a be a mess from the beginning. We met our tour group at the meeting location, along with a few other tours. Our tour guide didn't have a sign but all of the other tours did, so it was not easy to find our group. Then we found out our small tour of 15 or less people was actually 30 people. As we walked to meet our bus, the guide led us to the wrong bus and then could not find our bus and had to call and the bus had to pull around to our location. Once we were on the bus, I found out that they had merged 3 tours onto this bus. The tour I booked, a tour where only a ride was given to Seville and back and another tour where people purchased their own tickets to visit some of the sites. When we arrived in Seville, the group of 6 people that had purchased their own site tours got off the bus and left with our local tour guide. The guide on our bus said that we would have to find another guide because that guide was not supposed to go with the group of 6. So, the remaining 24 people waited around for about 30 minutes until the next local guide showed up. We walked to the Alcazar palace and the 2 guides (our bus guide and the local guide) had no idea what to do. They had not even bought tickets to the Alcazar and the line to get in was already long. They eventually bought the tickets and we made it inside but not before the group had to be split into 2 groups because the guides didn't know that tour groups could only have a maximum number of people in it. We got a tour of the palace and then left. When we left the palace we had about 1 hour until we had to head to back to Cadiz. We walked over to the Cathedral for a quick tour, but not before we stopped in a local store so we could shop, which no one had asked for. It was obvious this was a setup that I'm sure the tour guide got some kind of kickback for. When we arrived at the Cathedral, we didn't have tickets and this time when the guides went to buy tickets they didn't buy enough for everyone in the group. The guides only counted us 3 times before we went in, they should have counted us 4 times, I guess. The tour of the Cathedral was rushed. We also didn't have time for lunch, 1 hour free time, or the driving tour of Cadiz. As we drove back to Cadiz, our tour guide decided to stay in Seville, so it was just the tour group and the bus driver, who didn't speak English. We felt incredibly shorted on this tour. Would not recommend.

No show. Contact phone number was disconnected.

Upon arriving at our port, there was no one to meet us nor any information given except a phone number. The number was no longer in service. We found out later they had sent an email but since we were on a cruise ship we had no internet. The phone number was our only method of communication. We have attempted to contact them by email for a refund but we have received no response in a week.

It was good. The guide was walking a little too quick for me. I have a bad knee and Carolyn and mecayla helped me go up the stairs. Otherwise, could not have made it. Carolyn and Mekayla were just fantastic! Would do this again but at my pace.

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Self-Guided Seville | May 2018

This tour was difficult from the start. Leaving the port and walking to a destination outside of the port to meet the tour was very difficult, and FAR for those who had even some slight problems walking. Hard to follow written directions to meeting spot. Tour guide finally showed up, very ill-prepared, no lists of tour guests and did not seem to be able to properly understand our questions. When we finally got to the bus her explanations to the areas we were driving through were incomplete, and not very informative. Her concern was the weather and the movement of the clouds.
I would say that unless the tour company was changed I'd stay away from this one! Seville on your own would be wonderful.

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Self-Guided Seville | Jan 2018

This tour was to be on our own with just a bus ride with guide to Seville. When we arrived the guide up-sold us on the full tour and, although it was quite a bit more expensive than we had planned, it was a very good tour. The only issue was that we were hurried through the Cathedral in order to get out and be given time on our own. We would have preferred to spend more time in the Cathedral.

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Small-Group Scenic and Walking Tour with sherry tasting | Dec 2017

Tour was very boring. The bus tour portion was mostly walking. The walking tour portion retraced some of the sights on the walking portion of the bus tour. Nothing remarkable. Walking through narrow city streets with very little comment from the guide. Although the tour description advised there would be a bottle of water provided, no water was given out. There were 8 of us on the tour. 6 of us of the 8 left about half way through the tour and walked back to the ship. Pretty much a waste of time.
Would not recommend this. Not up to the usual Viator high standards.
