What You Can Expect

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

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 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 pre-arranged time and return to Cadiz well in advance of your cruise ship’s departure.

Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide. Very interest sights with tremendous historical significance. Bus ride to Seville was too long.

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.

Our tour guide was good and he even brought his brother to help herd the cats. The Alcazar Palace had the Moorish influence. The government building with each town's tile artwork was amazing. We got to shop a little, and had tapas near the large church building. The only thing we missed was the Metropol Parasol the largest wooden structure in the world, please add it to the tour.

Cost was 1/2 of equivalent Cruise Ship fees with a much smaller tour size along with trip timing tailored to our cruise ship port time. The smaller bus enabled quicker time to Seville with more city access flexibility. Tour leaders were knowledgeable, courteous and just plain fun. We had a wonderful time and will plan to use Cadiz Shore Excursions for our future travels.

Wonderfully, organized experience. Walked off ship and rep was there checking everyone in. Got on a nice modern big bus. Gave us a welcomed rest stop in a clean place after 45 minutes. 45 minutes later we arrived in Seville and were split into 3 smaller groups with local guides. Very interesting guided tour, then had time to do our own thing. The shuttle back to the ship went very well with the 45 minute stop for the restroom. Got to the ship with plenty of time not to feel rushed. I would totally use this company again. Thanks for a great tour!!!
