Traveling to Seville with the whole family? Our Tastes, Tapas & Traditions of Seville Food Tour is one of the best kid-friendly activities in Seville!
It can be daunting organising a trip to a new city for all the family, and a walking tour isn’t something that many people would immediately jump to book their kids onto, but with a great combination of fascinating stories, unique traditions, passionate locals and, of course, amazing food, our Tastes, Tapas & Traditions of Seville Food Tour is something your kids will love– and here’s why!
1. It’s an adventure!
With so many narrow streets, hidden squares and local spots to experience on our tour, it really feels like an adventure for all our guests, especially the little ones. Heading off the beaten track in a new city is an exhilarating experience your kids will love, especially when there’s so much delicious food to accompany them on their journey!
2. They get to meet some enthusiastic locals
On our Tastes, Tapas & Traditions of Seville Food Tour, it’s not just about eating the delicious food; it’s also about the people behind those traditional bites. Seville is full of huge personalities and there’s no one better than these passionate locals to share the city’s most treasured traditions. Kids love interacting with ham slicer David from Corta y Cata or Alvaro from historic bar Taberna Peregil, Sevillanos who take service with a smile to a new level.
3. Dessert anyone?
With so many delicious bakeries and amazing ice cream shops in Seville, the afternoon foodie fun wouldn’t be complete without a few sweet bites. Kids will have two different chances to try local specialties, one early on and another delicious treat to finish off the experience, meaning that something dulce is never too far away!
4. There’s not too much walking
We all know kids seem to have an endless supply of energy, but even the most energetic of children can tire after a long morning walking. Thankfully, our morning tour is a great combination of walking, sitting and standing, so your little ones are never in the one place too long, nor do they have to walk too far between stops.
Note: The total walking distance is approximately 3 kilometers over the course of 4 hours.
5. There’s kid-friendly Spanish food available too
Kid-friendly activities in Seville are not hard to find, but sometimes parents can struggle to find dishes that the whole family can enjoy. Our morning tour combines a wide variety of local treats that kids are more than welcome to try along with their parents, but we can also provide special kid-friendly food alternatives at certain stops to ensure your little ones leave full and happy.
6. They’ll see treasured traditions in action
As part of our foodie adventure, we love showing the processes behind the food our guests eat, and seeing the delicacy and intricacy of the ham slicing process is always a treat for people of all ages. This interactive part of the Tastes, Tapas & Traditions Tour makes sure kids are having an engaging, fun experience with their family.
7. Our guides love having kids along
Our expert guides have an infectious love for our city that is felt by all of our guests. The Devour Seville Food Tours team is energetic at the best of times, but we get such a kick out of the enthusiasm of younger guests and seeing their reaction to the delicious bites and local traditions they experience on our tour. Get an insight into what a tour with Devour Seville looks like with this great video from our guides Jaimie and Hayley.
8. Kids receive a great discount!
We appreciate that traveling as a family can be very expensive, so kids can join our tours at a much-reduced price. But, of course, that doesn’t mean they will have any less of an experience, they’ll still get to enjoy the same range of tastes as the grown-ups!
