Know More about this tour

Start your day with a hotel pickup from the Algarve, and travel east to Spain and the southern city of Seville. After roughly two hours on the road from the main meeting point, arrive into the city and set out to discover its famous sights on a walking tour.

Explore Maria Luisa Park, and hear how its centerpiece square and palace complex Plaza de España was created for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair. Set in the middle of the park’s elaborate Moorish-style gardens, Plaza de España was built in a classic Renaissance Revival style, and is now home to several important Government buildings.

Head inside the main palace building to see its two towers and the impressive courtyard fountain, and then leave the park to explore the surrounding Seville neighborhoods. Wander around pretty Santa Cruz, admiring its cluster of whitewashed houses and lively tapas bars that spill onto the streets, and then stop for photos outside Seville Cathedral, one of the world’s largest Gothic cathedrals.

Walk around the outside of Real Alcazar Palace, home of King Juan Carlos, and admire its array of architectural styles that range from Moorish to Neoclassical. Your walking tour finishes after seeing the palace, where your guide will leave you to enjoy 3 hours of free time.

Sightsee independently, shop for souvenirs or relax over lunch in one of the city’s atmospheric tapas bars (own expense); how you enjoy your free time is up to you! Then, meet your guide at the prearranged time and travel back to your hotel in the Algarve where your day trip finishes.

  • 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.

  • Great tour of Seville if short on time. Early pickup, which went smoothly. It was a long day but to be expected. We choose the Seville gothic cathedral, which was spectacular and enjoyed some shopping.

  • This was more a busride to Seville than a guided tour. I think more time should have been allotted in the city. We only had enough time to tour the Cathedral, which was amazing, and eat lunch before having to return to the bus. A departure at 6 pm instead of 3 pm would have allowed us to see some other things, like the Plaza de Espana. If you go mind your time and pick your one or two hot spots, you won't have time for much more.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Beautiful city of Seville. We were picked up very early and had to travel west as far as Albafeura before we headed to Seville- however well worth it! The bus driver was Paulo and Dominique was an amazing and informative guide with the ability of at least 5 languages. Be careful that you don't get ripped off with the horse and carriage ride- settle what you are able to pay before you get on! The river cruise was lovely and cool.

  • 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.

  • Seville is a beautiful city just wish we had more time there. I would suggest 1-2 central location pick-up spots for travellers to Seville. There was at least 2-3 hrs. to and from that was wasted on picking up and dropping off passengers. We found the boat cruise extremely disappointing and would not promote it the water stunk of fish and the sights were mediocre.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • 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.

  • Pros: On Time pick up. Seville is a beautiful city worth visiting. We had a good time in Seville.
    Cons: The description for this tour is a lie. This is no walking tour. The guide conducts the tour in 5 languages English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese but she doesn't have an order to the languages. She randomly translates everything and you will miss information. She conducted the tour on the bus while driving, explaining to us about history of various buildings and a lot of information was missed in English and other languages possibly as well, because while driving there simply isn't enough time to translate the info in 5 languages! She then told us we had 4.5 hours on our own, from the time she dropped us off. So we did our own walking tour of the Plaza de Espana. the 4.5 hours was also not enough to do a tour of Alcazar and the Church. We just saw Alcazar from outside, moved on to the church for 30 minutes and then ran to get something quick to eat. Don't be fooled and think that she will take you on a walking tour. Because that's not what happened to us. We were also dropped of back at the hotel around 8 PM. Pick up was 6 AM. Overall the tour was not worth the money at all. All they do is provide transportation really. I don't know how some people have described that they did a walking tour and had 5 hours to walk around. It's impossible!
