2. From Seville: TriJerez & Cádiz Full-Day Private Day Tour

Thanks to its wine, jerez or sherry, the equestrian tradition, the bulls, flamenco, and motor racing, Jerez has been known far and wide for many years. The Muslims left a deep impact on the town including the layout of the quarters situated at the heart of the old Arabic city town center such as San Lucas and San Mateo, where the church of the same name is to be found, the Market Square, and Riquelme Palace. But without a doubt, the most important Al-Andalus feature is the Alcázar de Jerez within the Mosque, the Arab Baths, the Olive Garden, and the Baroque palace of Villavicencio built upon the ruins of the Islamic palace, where you can find the original camera obscura. The Tacita del Plata is considered the oldest city in the Western World. An open, cosmopolitan city, its port was chosen by Columbus as the point of departure for his second voyage to the New World. The city's renovation as the port to The Indies then brought about an era of economic, cultural splendour, when Baroque palaces with their characteristic towers offering amazing views were built. In Cadiz, discover the golden dome of the cathedral, and the remains of the original cross-fire defence system. See the remaining sections of the walls and semi-bastions in La Puerta Tierra. Stroll through the Campo del Sur for a view of the Los Mártires and Capuchinos defence bastions, by La Caleta, guarded by San Sebastián and Santa Catalina Castles. Head towards the boulevard Alameda Apodaca to see the La Candelaria Bastion and the San Carlos Walls.

Jerez de la Frontera Private Guided Walking Tour

3. Jerez de la Frontera Private Guided Walking Tour

Jerez de la Frontera, well known for its wines, its horses, and its flamenco, preserves a monumental center that has been declared a historic artistic site. One of the noblest towns in Andalusia brings together the splendor of aristocratic palaces with the popular flavor of typically Andalusian houses. During this walking tour, discover not only Jerez de la Frontera's Arab past, very clear in its walls, the Fortress and the Mosque, or the city’s main Christian symbol, the Cathedral, but also the tangled streets of the old town, the atmosphere of the timeless buildings, the hidden courtyards, and the occasional forgotten corner where the essence of Andalusia is captured by a special lighting. A stop at the Food Market illustrates why Jerez de la Frontera's cuisine is so tasty. You'll be greeted by over 50 stalls selling everything from fresh fish to giant tuna, from boquerones and shellfish to huge spider crabs and diminutive Cadiz Bay shrimps. There are also a number of vegetable stalls where you can find every seasonal vegetable imaginable. An equal revelation are a smaller number of other stalls where you can find olives to Iberian ham or local cheese. What could be better than to finish off your walk at one of the best Tabernas of the city to savor a delicious Sherry wine? Come, enjoy, taste, and discover Jerez de la Frontera.

4. From Seville: Cadiz & Jerez Sherry Tasting Day Trip

If you are on your grand tour of Andalusia, Cadiz and Jerez are those magical spots that sees comparatively few visitors. Unlike well-traveled attractions such as Cordoba or Granada, Cadiz and Jerez have got their own soul, history, charm and claim to fame. One of the oldest cities in all of Europe, Cadiz was founded by the Phoenicians 3000 years ago. It rests on the tip of the European continent and Atlantic Ocean, at the confluence of the Mediterranean Sea and the ocean, with cool sea breezes and long sandy beaches, a vivacious old port town encompassed by an ancient wall. The bustling pedestrian streets of Cadiz can easily be explored by foot in a few hours, where you will encounter inviting fresh seafood aromas and friendly locals, making it one of the most entertaining cities in all of Spain. Carnival in Cadiz is celebrated extravagantly. Jerez is the capital of the famous Spanish sherry in all its delightful varieties, from very dry to desert wines and you will be able to taste them all. Your excursion will enable you to enjoy a delightful day with nice walks in the old town with its numerous lively plazas and historic monuments, wrapping up with a relaxing time on the beach. Have the chance to walk up to the historic watch tower from where the boats were observed, and visit an old and family run wine cellar to immerse yourself in the fantastic world of Spanish wine. Optionally, you could visit the exquisite ancient Camera Obscura to have a chance to view the city from a unique perspective.

Brilliant tour

We arrived in Seville at 1am and were due to be picked up at our hotel between 8am - 8.30pm that morning. Due to difficulty parking outside our hotel I was sent an email asking us to meet at another hotel. Unfortunately I didn't read the email as I was on the plane and very tired when we arrived. Pablo was excellent he rang our hotel and then came and took us to the coach. He was very knowledgeable and told us many interesting things about the trip. I would recommend this trip and GetYourGuide

The local tour company was very responsive and a phone call was received three days before the tour. Also, during the Christmas season, the dissolution location had to be changed from the meeting place, so he sent me to me near the hotel without any intuition.

A magical day with a very professional and cultivated, attentive and very friendly guide, the visit of the cellar is very educational, the show is a must and the little tour in Cadiz instructive! A very serious and reliable company!

Don't miss this tour! Very professionally organized and managed. Exceptional guide. Highly recommend.

Excellent activity!

The guide Pablo is an excellent guide, the terrific tour and the very entertaining activities.
