The last tour was with Carmen and it was the flamenco experience in Seville. It was AMAZING! Carmen is a professional flamenco dancer herself! How unbelievable is that?! I was very close to skipping flamenco after looking at it on YouTube but I'm so glad we didn't. Hearing the history and passion from a dancer herself made all the difference when we went to see the show. It was truly a great show with a lot of passion and emotion and I think el duende was achieved several times!
We spent a delightful evening with an interesting group and a highly informed and enthusiastic guide Elena tasting tapas and enjoying a fantastic flamenco performance. Elena dances flamenco, her father is a flamenco expert and all of her experience and passion about the music and dance made this a unique experience. The evening flew by and was the highlight of our time in Seville. Can't recommend enough.
The Seville Tapas & Flamenco Tour was one of the best tours we have ever been on. All tapas were exquisite with a very good selection of matching wines. Before the show Elena gave us a brief history, secrets and traditions behind the flamenco. We were totally amazed with the passion and power of this authentic flamenco. If you visit Seville please do not miss it. Strongly recommended.
What to Expect on Your Tour
There are two things you have to do in Seville, and we’re doing them both tonight. We’ll start at two traditional-style tapas bars, where you’ll not only learn the secrets of eating in Seville, but you’ll also get a primer in flamenco. That way, when we head to the authentic show, you’ll understand the meaning behind the art form. Afterwards, debrief the powerful show over a sit-down dinner.
We’ll start things off with a visit to a traditional abacería: part shop, part bar, and the perfect spot for a crash course in tapas in Seville. Here you’ll enjoy a selection of all of Spain’s favorite cured meats paired with a sweet vermouth (and you’re in for a pleasant surprise if you haven’t tried Spanish vermouth yet!).
Next, we’re off to one of Seville’s oldest and most traditional bars, dating back nearly 150 years. And we’ll set you up with the locals’ favorite order here: expertly-sliced, acorn-fed Iberian ham and a local sherry wine, one of Andalusia’s most important products. Here your expert guide will lead you through the roots and mysteries of flamenco—from its unclear origins to its current worldwide fame, and you’ll see how Seville fits into this remarkable story.
Then it’s time to head to the show! Tucked within Seville’s gorgeous Jewish Quarter, you’ll be enjoying the flamenco show in a stunning 15th-century building. This is authentic flamenco so you can expect a small venue with no dramatic lights or microphones, just improvised passion. Thanks to your newfound knowledge of this mysterious art, you’ll be able to savor the world-class performance a little more.
Having covered two types of traditional tapas bars earlier in the evening, we’ll round out our tapas experience with a sit-down dinner after the show. We’ll be at a modern, family-run tapas bar that was one of the first to bring creative fusion tapas to the city. It’s the perfect moment to share your impressions of the performance over great food and wine!
At the end of the night, you’ll have done so much more than eaten tapas and seen a flamenco show—you’ll understand flamenco’s place in Seville, and we bet it will have found a place in your heart.
And as with all Devour Seville tours, you’ll receive our Devouring Seville guide. Packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city, put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Seville like a local!
