Guadalquivir River Cruise
- Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
- Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
- Pickup from a centrally located meeting point
One of the longest rivers in Spain, the Guadalquivir has nurtured the unspoiled natural environment and maintained the rich agricultural region surrounding Seville for centuries. From your vantage point on the water, you'll get a wonderful panorama of the many towers, churches, bridges and monuments that illustrate the history of Andalusia's capital city.
Spot the Golden Tower (Torre del Oro), a military watchtower built by the Almohad dynasty to control access to Seville via the river. Hear the story behind the origin of the tower's name from your guide.
See where the Andalusian government is housed at Palace of San Telmo, an emblematic buildings of Sevillian baroque architecture. View several modern structures built for the Universal Exposition of Seville (Expo '92), including the stunning Alamillo Bridge (Puente del Alamillo), Barqueta Bridge (Puente de la Barqueta) and the modern Teatro de la Maestranza opera house.
Drift under the iconic Triana Bridge (Puente de Triana) and see the Maestranza bullring (Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla), the oldest bullring in the world home to a famous annual bullfighting festival.
Feel free to purchase snacks and drinks on board. When your boat arrives back at the dock, take a 1-hour guided walk along the river, around the exterior of the bullring and through the Triana neighborhood, Seville's vibrant old quarter where you'll pass lively tapas bars, pop into ceramic shops and seek out surviving corrales — tiny buildings with flower-smothered courtyards.
Your tour ends back at the start point.

I would give this 0 stars if that was an option! We did not get a chance to do this tour as the contact person that we had to contact per the tour did not answer his phone or return our call over the two days we were in Seville--this caused us a lot of wasted vacation time. I would not recommend taking the chance on this tour unless something changes organizationally.

This was misleading. 2-3 hrs. were spent touring parts of seville (bull ring) that I didn';t really want to see. Finally we went on the river cruise which I could have gotten independently and it was not run by our guidfe. BY the way, the guide was terrible. She spoke too fsst in both English and Spanish and was unintelligible and did not answer questions well..
