Classical Seville Tour (3.5 hours):
Seville is brim with interesting historical monuments, many dating back to the city’s time under the Moors and later medieval days. This 3.5-hour tour focuses on Seville’s grandest sights and Moorish heritage, with visits to the immense Gothic Cathedral and beautiful Golden Tower (Torre del Oro). 

Take a seat in an air-conditioned coach and enjoy a panoramic drive around some of Seville’s highlights. Snap photos of the landmarks and hear about their history from the informative onboard commentary. 

Pay a visit to Seville Cathedral, one of Europe’s largest cathedrals in Europe. Go inside with your guide and admire the treasures as you learn how the cathedral took over a century to build before its completion in 1502. Then, explore the Giralda, the cathedral’s ornate bell tower, as your guide tells how it was originally built as a Moorish minaret in the 12th century.

Continue to the Golden Tower (Torre del Oro) beside the Guadalquivir River. Built by the Moors in the 13th century and used a watchtower and prison, the tower now houses an intriguing naval museum. Take a turn around the exhibits to learn about Seville’s maritime history and then conclude your tour in the Santa Cruz quarter. 

The Golden Tower is closed on Mondays, and on these days, a visit to the Basilica Macarena will be included instead.

Please note: This tour includes the entry fee to Seville Cathedral only.

Historical Seville Tour (3.5 hours):
On this tour, enjoy a panoramic coach tour around many top Seville attractions. Take snaps of the landmarks on route and learn their secrets and stories from the fascinating onboard commentary.

Travel by coach to the Plaza de America next to Maria Luisa Park, and step out to admire the palaces built for the Ibo-American Exhibition in 1929, including the handsome Mudéjar Pavilion.

Then, continue to the Alcazar Royal Palace. Head inside this extravagant Moorish palace with your guide and take in its beautiful mosaic tiles, leafy patios and Moorish and Renaissance gardens.

Afterward, take a stroll around the historical cobbled streets and courtyards of the Santa Cruz neighborhood, Seville's former Jewish quarter. Your tour finishes here when your guide departs. 

Please note: This tour includes the entrance fee to the Alcazar Royal Palace only.

This tour is a complete waste of time and a rip off. In Seville you only want to see the Cathederal and the Alcazar. This tour splits the two in half so you have to waste two days. You should only do a tour that combines both attractions in one visit as it only takes an extra hour.

Spent over one hour picking up tour members. So actual tour time was well under three hours. Too many different languages being spoken so each language received a reduced amount of explanation. Guides English ability left much to be desired. There is no way that 40+ people can hear this guide when she isspeaking outside, a good portion of her comments are when she is walking and you can hear her. Since number of English speaking guests were miniimal, so was commentary. A BIG DISAPPOIINTMENT!

The tour was very disappointing. The main reason was because the guide was very stressed and seemed not very interested. She looked as if she was in pain all the time. The group was big and too divers, everything had to be translated in 3 languages, which is too much. She was very hard to understand, because she spoke very fast and because of the size of the group, you could not come close to her. Even native speakers had problems to understand her. In the Alcazar we finally left the tour and hired an audio guide. A much better way to explore this beautiful place. It is a pity, but I can not recommend this tour to anyone. In the past we booked several tours through Viator in divers cities. It was great all the time, except for this one.

The experience of this tour left a lot to be desired. The tour guide while conversant in English and Spanish struggled with communication delivery. Lola seemed to rush through the tour and transitioned from Spanish to English with little pause and accent we struggled to pick up. Seville is a beautiful town and we enjoyed the sights but felt handicapped by not being able to pick up the history and culture of the various attractions. What left us feeling more disappointed was that we were asked to leave the tour suddenly immediately after covering the Alcazar because the Cathedral, which was the next stop and adjacent to the Alcazar was NOT PART of the "Historical portion of the tour". This left us confused at multiple levels because we struggled to understand how the Cathedral was not part of Seville's history, we were not informed upfront (as part of the tour description) that the Cathedral tour was NOT part of our tour agenda and it was only 2.5 hours into what was promised to be a 3.5 hour ( provided in the tour description). We felt a bit cheated and did not feel we got our money's worth from a quality of tour standpoint. Recommendation: Please check what is covered and what is not, intricate differences between a 1/2 day "classical" versus "historical" tour and avoid the mentioned tour guide. I did call to express my displeasure and was asked to document by concerns over email.

Like most tours, spent a lot of time picking up folks at hotels. Once on the tour, it was comprehensive but fast. The walking part was also fast- almost too fast for this 73 year old man with some health problems, but we made it through. Subject matter was god, guide was competent and well-versed in subject matter. But she always was in a hurry....

An excellent tour to see all important sites in the city if you are there for a short time. Very experienced guide. I would only expect the tour in one language that you signed for. In our case, we signed for English, and in fact the tour was in three languages.
