Guided tour in the quarter Barrio de Santa Cruz (included, afternoon):
This is the heart of the historical and monumental Seville, here are the Cathedral with its bell tower Giralda, the palace Alcazar, the Archivo de Indias, the Archiepiscopal Palais, many other monuments and the former Jewish quarter with its narrow and winding alleys.

Panorama-Tour the vespertine, romantic Seville (included, evening): :
From sunset, a romantic tour with the two-storeyed tourist bus. This tour leads us along the modernist buildings which were built for the 1929 World Exposition and form the so-called "Paseo Romántico". After sunset there follows a big round passing the most beautiful places of the evening lit city.

* These above mentioned four tours may be consumed in any order and also on any day of your stay, but only within 24 hours.
Cruise on Guadalquivir river (included):
A cruise which takes about one hour with panorama-ships on the river in the heart of Seville. The ships pass along the bullring, the quarter Triana, the buildings of the Expo 92 as well as those of the Ibero-American exposition of 1929, the towers of Plaza de España, and the beautiful historical and modern bridges of Seville. During the cruise you receive commentary in English. The ships operate daily from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. in summer and until 7 p.m. in winter.
You will be picked up from your hotel and then travel to Granada. There you will experience a three-hours guided tour of the Moorish palace Alhambra, certainly one of Andalusia's main attractions, and of the Generalife gardens (skip-the-line access, all entrance fees are included). You then have about two hours of free time in the historic city center, to have lunch, shop, walk, etc. Around 7:30 p.m. you will be back at your hotel in Seville.

During a three-hours guided tour you visit the main attractions, including the Alcazar, Jewish quarter, the Synagogue and of course the Cathedral which was built over the magnificent columned halls of the Moorish Mosque (skip-the-line access, all entrance fees are included). After the tour you have free time, for example to have lunch. At about 6 p.m. you will be back at your hotel in Seville.
These above mentioned day trips will of course normally not take place on consecutive days, so you can enjoy before and inbetween them your stay in the Andalusian capital Seville in a relaxed way.
These included tours and trips show you what is considered the essential Andalusia. Apart from the two day trips to Granada and Cordoba you stay 5 days in Seville. If you wish, you may add more day trips to your individual package. However, if you wish to add several or all of these trips, we strongly recommend that you also book additional hotel nights in Seville - after all you probably also want to relax a bit during your vacations.
