For this 3.5-hour food and culture tour of Seville, meet a little before start time in front of the Santa Catalina Church. This evening tour involves a moderate amount of walking, so make sure to be ready to take the city by foot.

As you stroll the streets, pop into four bars to taste popular Spanish tapas and drinks. Most of the bars you’ll visit during this tour are over 100 years old and have architecture worth admiring.

Itinerary
Stop At:  
El Rinconcillo

Duration: 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Alfalfa
Afterwards, your guide will give you a taste of Seville’s history at a couple of important sites. After this, you’ll begin to see Moorish influence left and right—and you’ll also come face-to-face with the remains of a Roman temple!
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Taberna Álvaro Peregil
Next up, you’ll visit a tiny tapas bar you might miss if you weren’t looking for it. This bar might be crowded, but that’s okay—they’re expecting us! Throughout this tour we’ll be visiting the can’t-miss spots that are packed with locals and often intimidating to visitors, but we’ll show you the ropes. Here at this family-run stop we’ll try orange wine, a local specialty found only in western Andalusia, and we’ll pair it with cured Manchego cheese and slow-roasted pork belly drizzled with Spanish olive oil.
Duration: 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Barrio Santa Cruz
Then we’ll embark on our 20-minute history walk through the Jewish Quarter and city center. We’ll get to know the Cathedral from the outside and hear Seville’s very own Romeo and Juliet story, among other highlights.
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Casa Morales
Now it’s time for more tapas! At this traditional bar often packed with locals you’ll try one of the city’s most typical bites: montaditos. These little sandwiches are filled with unbeatable combinations of regional ingredients. We’ll pair them with a dry manzanilla sherry, and make sure you know exactly how to order next time you’re out on your own.
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Enrique Becerra
After exploring a few more of Seville’s hidden streets and plazas, we’ll head to our last stop. This iconic local tavern is the newest of the night at “only” 40+ years old! It’s been run by the same owner for all of those 40 years, and he’s still at the restaurant every night to greet his guests. We’ve been on our feet for a while by now, so we’re going to take a seat here and enjoy the creative Spanish food they’ve perfected (since they’ve been doing it since long before it became trendy). While eating, we’ll sip an Andalusian wine, and we’ll finish the night off with a little something sweet!
Duration: 1 hour

Okay tour, but also okay to skip it
Kellie_H

This tour was OK. For the price, we expected much more. The history aspect was very light, and the tapas and drinks were OK. I do not feel like I came out of the tour with much more knowledge than I did going in. For the price tag, they could really improve the “history” aspect, as well as the tapas offered. Overall, it wasn’t a terrible experience, but we would have preferred to do a nice dinner and drinks that evening for half the price.

Polar was the best guide! We tried so many different foods and drinks, she made sure that we had an authentic Seville experience! She took us to the best places and pointed out local spots all along the way for us to try during our time in Seville. It was the most fun food tour we’ve had yet!

Walk among the orange blossoms and enjoy tapas
Scott_S
, Mar 2022
If you are not familiar with tapas or southern Spain culture this tour is a great primer. First of all, if you are from the States remember you are now in Spain so leave your concept of when to eat back home and at least for the next few hours enjoy and absorb this ‘new’ concept. Perhaps you might find there is some truth to the way and the timing of eating. Our guide was awesome with so much history, culture, food pairings and all around a great person to spend a few hours with. And if you are so lucky to walk among the orange blossoms, walk slowly and breathe in deeply. Thank you Miranda, and southern Spain

We did this tour on the last day of our stay. It was the highlight of our short break. Elena was our tour guide, and she was fantastic fun and so knowledgeable. We were taken to four fantastic tapas bars - ones we would definately not found by ourselves. We tasted some wonderful food and some really delicious drinks. It was a great group - 4 Brits and 4 Americans, there was plenty of chat and laughter. Highly reccomended.
