What You Can Expect

Cadiz Shore Excursion: Seville Tour and Skip-the-Line at Royal Alcazar Palace

Admire the Giralda bell tower with your guide!

Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan at the port of Cadiz, and admire the splendid scenery during the 1.5-hour drive to Seville. Listen as your knowledgeable guide sets the historical scene of the city, and then disembark to begin your enriching exploration. Lose yourself in the labyrinth of cobbled streets as you discover the neighborhood of Santa Cruz by foot. Once the city’s Jewish quarter, the enclave has retained its old-world charm and is steeped in intriguing history. See narrow streets thronged with blooming flower baskets and admire the quaint constructions as you walk. 

Next, approach the breathtaking structure of Seville Cathedral, a 15th century construction that combines Gothic grandeur with ecclesiastical extravagance. Gaze at the vertiginous Giralda Bell Tower, and marvel at the cathedral’s sheer size and stature. 

Then, saunter through the ambient main square to the Royal Alcazar Palace. Sail past the crowds of the entrance hall and immediately begin your tour of the majestic palace with your guide. See an opulent tableau of architectural designs as you admire vast courtyards, gorgeous gardens and richly decorated rooms, then visit the General Archive of the Indies, where a wealth of information about Christopher Columbus awaits. 

Enjoy some relaxed free time at the conclusion of your tour, choosing to sample Spanish cuisine, or venture within the cathedral. Meet your guide at a prearranged time, and return to Cadiz well in advance of your cruise ship’s departure.

We met our 60-passenger bus on the dock in Cadiz. On the long ride to Seville our bus tour guide provided an excellent overview of the history and economy of the area. When we arrived in Seville the tour of about 36 people was divided into three smaller groups. Our local guide in the Alcazar was excellent. Though the palace was very crowded, she took time to fully answer any questions and allow us to view and photograph the spectacular architecture.

Wonderful tour with very friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. The skip the line aspect at the palace was great. Tour guides took great care of us. Cadiz was a fantastic stop.

On our drive to Seville our guide gave us an informative overview of the history of Cadiz and what to expect then turned us over to a local guide at Seville. The Plaza De Espana and Palace was a walk back in time. We loved the quaintness walking thru the neighborhoods and the restaurants/shops.

It exceeded my expectations. Everything was well organized and went flawlessly. The price was approximately 50 dollars less than the ship rate and was a full day with plenty of time to see the Palace and those exquisite gardens. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and her English was excellent.

Alcazar/Seville was a pleasant surprise after a disappointing Alhambra tour from the cruise ship.
Tip: if possible, make a reservation to enter the cathedral asap before starting your tour of Seville.
