If you’re visiting a historic city like Seville on holiday, and you only have a limited amount of time to see the highlights, a good option is to take an organised tour. The cathedral, Alcazar (Royal Palace), Santa Cruz former Jewish district, Maria Luisa Park and Expo 29 site – all Seville’s most important monuments can be visited with an expert to bring the city’s history to life.

A huge choice of ways to explore the city with a qualified guide is available, from open-top buses, enjoyable when the weather is reliably sunny most of the year, to boats and on foot.

You can take a Guided Tour around Seville, visiting the bullring, Santa Cruz, and the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the cathedral and Alcazar, finishing up with a glass of wine; or for those who prefer to see the city from the confort of their own seat Panoramic Sightseeing Tour, with a view of the bullring and Expo 29 pavilions from an open-top doublé-decker bus.

Another historical gem you can see on a tour of Seville is Plaza España.

If you prefer, you can go on foot to see the Torre del Oro, a medieval Riverside tower, and the 100-year-old Maria Luisa Park with its Plaza de España, centrepiece of the Expo 29, on the Walking Tour; or the Monumental Walking Tour, visiting the main monuments in the city – the cathedral and Giralda, and Alcazar. Or take a walking tour which includes a visit to the exquisite Mudéjar Alcazar: Historic Walking Tour and the Alcazar.

You can also take the hop-on hop-off bus around the old centre, and a Guadalquivir River Cruise to see the city from another perspective – the river Guadalquivir. For a bird’s eye view, go up to the Rooftop Walking Tour.

For a memorable evening out in Seville, the Night Tour with Flamenco Show - takes you around the city when the sun has gone down, and watch the most famous Spanish dance of all at a traditional tablao: flamenco, accompanied by traditional Sevillano tapas. Or you can see a Flamenco Show at one of the city’s top venues, accompanied either by a drink, tapas, or dinner.

If you’re coming with children, an excellent option is a day out at Isla Magica theme park, with rides and attractions galore, as well as a 4D cinema, boat rides and horse shows.

But you don’t have to be staying in Seville to explore this romantic city – there are also day trips from the Costa del Sol, which include return bus trip and lunch.

Whatever you want to see in beautiful Seville, whenever and however you want to see it, by day or night, from the road or river, there is a tour for you. Enjoy!
