As you enter Seville, start your panoramic tour along the Avenida de las Palmeras, a palm tree-filled Avenue where you can see various monuments dated from the World Fair of 1929. 

Your scenic tour continues along the Guadalquivir river and you will pass the Golden Tower, where of all the gold brought by conquistadors of the New World in stored.

As your coach progress through the bustling street, you will approach the Seville bullring Maestranza, one of the eldest in Spain. The huge building construction took close to 100 years to build and was finally finished in 1881.

Resume your ride and reach your final stop in Plaza España.This marvellous Rennaissance and New moorish building is grand and jaw dropping. A legacy of the Ibero-American Exhibition of World’s Fair in 1929, it is one of the most visited places in the whole of Spain. As you wander in this magnificent edifice, take some time to recognize the set of a Star Wars movie.

Your guide will then lead your small group to the maze-like Jewish Quarter commonly called Santa Cruz. The Jewish middle ages district was taken by the Catholic Kings in the 14th century and is today the cobblestoned heart of Seville. You will be taken back in time with its narrow cosy streets, tree-shaded squares, and centuries-old orange trees. 

After a relaxing break, its time to enter the Real Alcazar Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The skip the line scheme will ensure a swift entry to the Seville chef d’œuvre. The amazing interiors, fountains, and majestic gardens will take you several centuries back to times when Seville was the cultural, educational, and architectural jewel of the Moors. The 10th century Moorish fortress is nowadays the residency of the Spanish King when he visits Seville.

After an overwhelming guided visit, take a short walk across the Cathedral of Seville, another UNESCO World Heritage site. Built on the remains of a 15th century Mosque, the world's largest gothic building is also the 3rd biggest cathedral in the word. A display of grandeur and speechless golden interior is lavishly displayed in its interiors which host the final resting place of Christopher Columbus. There are 80 chapels inside the cathedral and in its garden are located the pretty Paseo de los Naranjos.
