Tastes, Tapas & Traditions of Seville Food Tour
Bursting with color, passion and sunshine, it’s hard not to fall head over heels for beautiful Seville. One of Spain’s most important cities since ancient times, Seville has been home to Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians – a melting pot of cultures whose lasting legacy is its incredible food. But with so many restaurants in the city and so many tapas to try, how can you ensure you’re getting the best of the best during your stay?
Join us on our 4-hour walking food tour and delve deep into Seville’s culinary traditions. You’ll eat your way through three of the city’s neighborhoods while learning about the different civilizations who have made the local gastronomy so unique. And while Seville has experienced an avalanche of new gourmet tapas bars in recent years, on this tour we avoid the fancy and embrace the rustic, the authentic, the real – the places where born-and-bred Sevillians eat, drink and celebrate. From a local market, to a century old bar to the best fried fish shop in the city, our expert English-speaking guide will take you off the beaten track and into the family-run food businesses where you taste a true flavor of the city.
Make sure to come hungry, we’ve lined up some of the city’s most delicious tastes for you to enjoy, from breakfast right the way through to dessert (and with the best Spanish ham, traditional tapas, wine and lots more in between). Along the way, you’ll get an insight into the iconic traditions that make Seville a true hub of Spanish culture, from the dazzling dresses of the April Fair to the sombre celebration of Seville’s Holy Week. You’ll also explore some of the city’s best kept secrets, from stunning hidden plazas to tiny alleyways where most tourists would never know to look.
