Seville is gorgeous. It’s full of beautiful architecture and is considered the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. Known for its flamenco dancing and its unique blend of European and Islamic style, it’s a popular stop along the main tourist trail around the country.
And while it doesn’t see as many visitors as Barcelona or Madrid, it has a large student population (so it’s affordable) and has a ton of things to see and do (and eat), from ornate palaces to historical cathedrals to mouth-watering tapas.
To help you make the most of your visit, here’s my list of the best walking tours in Seville. These will introduce you to the city and ensure you see the stunning highlights that have put it on the map — as well as get you off the beaten path!
Best Overall Tour
I’ve taken Take Walks tours all over Europe and it is, by far, my favorite tour company. They always manage to go above and beyond, with tours that are both fun and educational.
In Seville, they run two incredible walks: Seville in a Day is the perfect intro to the city, covering all the highlights, but for something unique, choose Alone in the Alcázar, which gives you early insider access to the royal palace that other tours don’t get. I can’t recommend them enough!
Best Free Tour
When it comes to free walking tours, New Europe sets the standard. It runs solid introductory tours all around Europe, and its Seville offering is no exception. On this 2.5-hour walk, you’ll see highlights such as the Torre del Oro, Triana Bridge, and Santa Ana Church. And while the tour is free, remember to tip your guide at the end!
Here are a few more walking tour options to help you make the most of your time in Seville:
1. Devour Food Tours
As a foodie, I love food tours, and Devour is my go-to company. Its guides are local experts, and they always provide incredible experiences. In Seville, which is home to over 3,000 tapas bars, there are three tours on offer, including the four-hour Tastes, Tapas & Traditions, which takes you around the market and to tapas bars, where you’ll eat incredible dishes while meeting the people who make them.
If you just want to focus on tapas, the Tapas, Taverns & History tour covers some of the best spots in town. And if you want to experience flamenco culture, check out the Tapas and Flamenco tour, which will not disappoint.
Tours from 79 EUR.
