What You Can Expect

Seville Day Trip from the Algarve

See a range of Seville's top attractions on a walking tour!

After meeting your guide at your Algarve hotel, enjoy a day trip to Spain’s Andalucian gem, Seville. Aboard your air-conditioned coach relish tranquil views as you travel 2 hours east. After arriving, venture by foot to discover the city’s top attractions.

First, stroll to beautiful Maria Luisa Park, a public park humming with local picnickers and shaded by a canopy of palm, elm, and mediterranean pine trees. Walk along the park’s expansive Moorish-style gardens as you approach the stunning Plaza de España. Learn how this Renaissance Revival style building was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair.

Enter the regal Plaza de España noticing the half circle moat, grandeur walking bridges, and gorgeous twin towers. Head towards the center and see the Vicente Traver fountain. Watch as water soars into the air creating a cooling mist.

Move onward to explore the neighborhood of Santa Cruz. Learn about this former Jewish quarter as you wind your way through narrow cobblestone alleys with Tapas Bars at every turn. After wandering past charming whitewashed houses arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage site Seville Cathedral. Stop for a perfect photo opportunity at the world’s largest Gothic cathedral.

Next, head to Real Alcazar Palace (Alcazar of Seville), the oldest royal palace still in use today. Admire its architecture developed by real Moorish kings and learn how the upper levels are still occupied by the royal family. After visiting the palace your tour ends with your guide, but continue for the next 3 hours on your own.

If you’re hungry, head to a tapas bar for a wide variety of tasty bites or grab a smooth gelato to cool down (own expense). Perhaps, step into a souvenir shop or just wander corridors taking in the ambiance. After three hours, rendezvous with your guide at a prearranged location and time and return to your Algarve hotel where your day trip ends.

A great way to see some highlights of Seville in a day. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at your hotel so no worries. It was a very long day but we knew that ahead of time. The bus was very comfortable.

Would recommend this tour. We were picked up in Quarteira at 5.45. When we got to Seville we had a short tour of the city on the bus before Celia led us on foot to the historic centre and gave helpful information.We then had nearly 5 hours free time.

We had a great day on this trip! We saw some previous reviews and to be honest thought they were really petty. Yes, it was a long journey but Seville is a long way from the Algarve, what do people expect?! The journey was comfortable on air conditioned coach with a coffee break either way. We had an early start with being based in Portimao again to be expected!! but that did not bother us. Overall very well organised, Ana was a great tour guide who seemed fluent in all three languages she spoke and was very friendly. Once in Seville you get a tour of the city on the bus so you don't have to pay for the sightseeing bus- bonus! Ana then gave us a 10 minute walking tour to the central points and the rest of the time was down to us! Obviously you will not get to see an entire city in one day but Ana gave us great advice on where to visit. Obviously in August Seville is going to be hot so those who complained about that really?! but there are plenty of places to get out of the sun. We had a great trip which was well run and organised and would recommend. This is charming city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Though this is a very long trip from the Western part of Algarve, it is definitely worth the effort. We were picked up from the hotel at 05:55 and returned around 7 pm. We had practically 5 hours of free time to visit the central part of gorgeous Seville, and have a quick snack break along the way it is not worth wasting time in a restaurant when there are so many beautiful monuments to discover in perfect weather!. The guide was pleasant and efficient in managing a big group : she distributed a street map of central Seville so that we could find our way around the town.
