    Very good informative tour However, I think there should be an option for a quicker tour too - 30 minutes for highlights only which would be better for kids. This tour was 90 mins and the complex closes at 5:45pm during their winter period. Ensure you have enough time to explore the gardens yourselves afterwards.

  • Seville Alcázar: Skip-the-Line Tickets and Tour

    8. Seville Alcázar: Skip-the-Line Tickets and Tour

Discover the Alcázar, which saw Roman, Visigoth and Arab Seville flourish. Visit this residence of kings on a 1.5-hour skip-the-line tour with an official guide.

    It was a holiday with lots of traffic and our GPS sent us to the Seville suburb of Gines to a house with the same address as Hagen Das, 30 minutes away. We called the office which held our tickets. We made it to Hagen Das 2 hrs later. We missed our tour guide. But with tickets in hand and some pleading, the agents at Skip the Line let us in and our group rented headsets and did our own tour. We’re glad we didn’t give up locating Hagen Das because the beauty of touring Real Alcazar was a highlight of our trip and the gardens were an added icing on the cake. In the future we would love to spend more time lingering in the gardens. We would suggest arriving several hours in advance though as finding parking, locating Hagen Das and then walking to the Palace can take time. Well worth the effort.
