    What to Expect on Your Tour


    Seville has been home to Romans, Muslims, Jews and Christians—a melting pot of cultures whose lasting legacy is its incredible food! On this daytime food tour, you’ll taste the city’s best bites alongside a local expert. While Seville has experienced an avalanche of new gourmet tapas bars in recent years, we’ll embrace the rustic, authentic and real! Head off the beaten track and into family-run shops to taste the true flavor of the city, all while getting insider information on the iconic traditions that make Seville so unique!


    Start your morning off in true Sevillian fashion at a local food market. First fuel up with a hot café con leche then walk the market stalls and learn how locals shop for the best seasonal produce. Before leaving the market you’ll taste Spain’s most prized gem—cured acorn-fed Iberian ham!

    Next up, it’s time for a tasty breakfast treat! Wind your way to a bar that’s over 100 years old, serving Seville’s best deep fried churros.

    Continue through the historic Alfalfa neighborhood where your expert guide will lead you to a reminder of Seville’s Moorish past, and provide insider information on some of the city’s biggest cultural events.

    Then it’s time for another taste—something sweet from some very surprising local bakers! Trust us when we say this is one stop many visitors miss, simply because they don’t know it exists!

    Afterwards, you’ll head to a local bar that does more than serve delicious traditional food! Upon entering, you’ll see it also serves as an unofficial museum for all things related to Seville’s famous holy week. Here you’ll taste two variations of small sandwiches, known as montaditos.

    On the way to your next food stop, you’ll see some of Seville’s must-see sights before arriving to a true Sevillano institution—a takeaway shop specialized in freshly fried food. Here you’ll taste the most popular food at Seville’s April Fair—fried dogfish, paired with a refreshing glass of Spanish white wine!

    The next stop on your foodie adventure through Seville is at one of the city’s most beloved family-run tapas bars, where you’ll fall in love with its traditional feel and home-cooked food.

    Finish your culinary crawl with dessert—the absolute best way to round off a morning of eating!

    And as with all Devour Seville tours, your guide will give you a copy of our Devouring Seville guide, which is packed with all our favorite places to eat and drink in the city! So put down your guidebook and get ready to experience Seville like a local!
