Please meet the guide close to the Statue of the Inmaculada Conception at Plaza del Triunfo.

This activity will end right where it started.
Find your way to the Alcázar of Seville to meet your tour group and breeze in without waiting in the long queues that frequently form outside this important Seville landmark. 

Walk through the UNESCO World Heritage Site, observe the Rooms of Charles V, the Patio of the Maidens, the Plaster Patio, the Hunting Patio, the Horse Shoe Arches, and the Ambassador's Room. Get a breath of fresh air in the meticulously manicured English gardens, featuring flowers, fruit trees, and water features.

Be sure to bring your camera for photos of architectural details representing styles from the Mudéjar to the 19th century. Hear about the famous monarch and poet al-Mutamid and what life was like in Spain in 1812. 

Your tour concludes after exploring this remarkable representation of Spanish history.

Maximize your time in Seville by upgrading your tour to include skip-the-line entry and a guided tour of Seville Cathedral—the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. After exploring the Alcazar, stroll to Seville Cathedral and discover the UNESCO-listed landmark alongside your guide.

Be amazed by the intricate interior décor of 80 chapels: admire prismatic stained glass, priceless masterpieces by Goya and Murillo, and the reputed remains of Christopher Columbus. Ascend to the summit of La Giralda—architectural evidence of the mosque that the cathedral replaced—and absorb spectacular city views.

Fabulous tour in Seville
Marlen_B

Our guide was Rosa and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and her english very clear. She was particularly good in pointing out the history’s hidden symbolism used , in statues,tiles and carvings, that one normally so easely overlooks . The little earphone made her easy to understand, even when standing away from her and gives one freedom to not having to cluster around in a group. Loved it.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was excellent. The only issue I had with the tour was we bought tickets for the Alcazar and the Cathedral. However the cathedral was closed because it was a holiday. I would have thought Viator would know what days they can’t sell tickets to attractions that are closed.

DO NOT BOOK!
Alissa_V
, Jun 2022
DO NOT BOOK! Our operator rescheduled our tour so that it was later in the morning and with no indication as to why. Then, they never showed up for the tour which forced us to buy tickets on the spot from different vendors at the Alcazar. Save your money as the price is nearly the same as the tour operators in Seville. Also, please beware of Viator themselves. The customer service refuses to believe customers and refuses to issue a refund. Beware of this lying operator and of Viator

The guide did not have an updated list of participants and several people were left without an access to the tour, leaving us at the entrance. We were promised a refund, but unfortunately to this day the only answer provided by Viator is "the tour operated normally and the guide was on time" - I received twice the same answer, after a 7-10 days investigation...; this obviously was not the question nor the problem, leaving me thinking am I communicating with a human or a computer? The problem is the service I paid for wasn't provided and the refund request is denied.

Absolutely fantastic Tour with Rosa. She provided an amazing amount of information about the Alcazar and the Cathedral that er would have never gotten touring on our own. She was perfect, keeping a steady pace and still making sure we were not tired. Rosa made our visit to Seville amazing and set the tone for the day.

DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR
Christopher_D
, Jun 2022
DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR. We waited over an hour for the tour guide to show up. After 15 minutes we called the company, Amigo Tours, and we were assured the tour guide was on the way however this was a lie. After almost an hour, we gave up and went to the line at the Alcazar to buy tickets ourselves. After waiting almost 15 minutes in line, the tour company called us back and assured us that there was a replacement tour guide waiting at the front gate for us. We left the line and went to the front gate…and the second guide never showed. This experience ruined our last day in Seville and led to us having to cancel our lunch reservations and scramble to put together last minute plans to see these sites. Don’t waste your time, book a different tour.

I would give this 5 stars if it wasn’t for the difficulties we had finding the tour guide on site. Please Amigo Tours, provide your guides with labelled shirts, umbrellas, signs or something to make them stand out. We had to call their office numerous times to try and get some guidance. Otherwise, s great guide and a great visit to Real Alcazar.
