Experience

Highlights

Full description
Explore the majesty of Seville with a local guide, and see the highlights of the Andalusian city as you walk down streets fragrant with the scent of orange trees.

Following a pick-up from your hotel (on request), transfer to Seville Cathedral. Admire the façade of the world’s largest Gothic cathedral (and the 3rd-largest church in the world), before going inside to be dazzled by sacred treasures. Registered in 1987 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the cathedral was built as a demonstration of the city’s wealth, and is also the burial site of Christopher Columbus.

Next, go inside the neighboring Alcázar palace complex, home to the General Archive of the Indies. Originally built by the Moors as a fort, the Alcázar subsequently became a royal palace, and is renowned as one of the most beautiful in Spain. The upper levels of the Alcázar are still used by the royal family as their official residence in Seville today.

See multiple treasures inside the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, along with exquisite architecture, such as the Courtyard of the Maidens. Marvel at ornate mosaics, and much more.

Magical Experience

Melissa was an amazing guide who was very energetic and passionate about her city. Our group had various people that spoke different languages (Spanish and English) which required the guide to translate back and forth two languages every time. This made the tour long and hard to engage with at times. The sites visited were beautiful and you were able to see the entire city of Sevilla in this tour. However we wished the tour was in one designated language. The company had meeting points where people were added to the group which made it large for one guide. Overall, Melissa was fantastic however her company needs to do a better job with organization and making sure tours are done in one designated language to make the consumers happy.

We enjoyed this tour of the most important places in Seville.

Hotel pick up was a joke. It was a 20 minute walk to the tour bus. Aside from that, the rest of the tour was a delight. Our guide, Melissa, was wonderful! She was entertaining, very knowledgeable, easy to understand, and quite responsive to queries. We wandered Plaza de Espana, and after this we walked about the Santa Cruz area and visited Alcazar Palace and the Cathedral. What a great way to start a stay in Seville!!
