What You Can Expect

Seville Afternoon Sightseeing Tour

Plaza de Espana, Seville

Begin your 3-hour afternoon tour with a pickup from your central Seville hotel or another location in the city. Meet your informative guide and hop inside your air-conditioned coach for a panoramic city sightseeing tour.

Admire some of Seville's landmarks from the comfort of your coach, and then enjoy a scenic boat trip along the Guadalquivir River.
Take snaps of the riverside monuments as you sail, and afterward, pay a visit to the striking modern pavilions and bridges built for the Seville Expo of 1992.

Hear how the Expo took its theme from the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ first voyage in 1492, and snap photos of the innovative buildings as your guide sheds light on their history and how they were used.

Then, visit the nearby Monastery of the Cartuja (Santa Maria de las Cuevas Monastery), the partially restored, 16th-century Carthusian monastery where Columbus stayed while he planned his second voyage of discovery in 1493.  The monastery is closed on Sundays and Mondays, so on these days, your tour will include a visit to the Charity Church (Iglesia de la Caridad) instead.

Finish with a visit to the Basilica of Macarena (Basilica de la Macarena), to see Seville’s most revered image, the statue of the Virgin Mary known to locals as La Macarena.

Gaze up at the richly gilded statue and hear how the icon is carried through the streets on Good Friday every year as part of the celebrations for Holy Week (Semana Santa).

Afterward, return back to the start point where your tour ends.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

This tour was great. While the description might be a little vague on activities our group certainly saw and experienced sites we would never have found on our own. The trip started with a prompt pick up of our group with a drop off for the river cruise. We we were taken up and down the Guadalquivir River, visited the Basílica de la Macarena, and the Torre del Oro. If there was a slight negative, it would be our tour guide spoke rapid fire Spanish and English so our group mixed English and Spanish speakers occasionally had some challenges keeping up, but the tour was great overall and having it in the early evening only enhanced the experience.

This was a nice way to experience my first day in Seville. The guide was very friendly and funny. We started with a boatride, and afterwards visited the bullfighting rink of Seville, which was not expected and a very interesting experience. How many people can say they have actually been inside a bullfighting rink?

The hotel pick up was appreciated. During the tour we visted the Plaza de Espana, the Bull Ring, Royal gardens and the Macarena Church. Air conditioned transport was appreciated on the warm day. The tour guide was lovely, and fluent in English and Spanish.

A good tour for those of you who have a short time in Seville. My guide was knowledgeable of Seville. I do think it needs more though. You go on the boat ride which is fine and you can plan out what you want to see more of on your own but you do see a real Bull Ring which is cool to see. I recommend for those of you in a short time and it gives an idea to plan out what you really want to see on your own. The tour did pick me up close to my hotel which was nice.

If you are only in Seville for a few days, I recommend doing this tour on the first day of your trip. It gives you a good oversight of the city and lets you plan where else you want to go for the rest of your holiday. The river cruise was excellent and relaxing. The tour includes the former 1992 World Expo sight which you may not ordinarily plan to see.

We couldn't see everything we wanted to because some places were closed due to Holy Week, and there were traffic problems due to processions. The river trip excellent.
