Best introduction to the city if you love food! The whole evening was perfect! It was the perfect balance of history and eating/drinking. The food and drink were amazing!! Such cool places we went to and she gave us many tips and recommendations for the rest of our stay. There was more than enough food and drink throughout the evening. Don't hesitate to book, Devour Tours seems to know what they are doing!
As someone who generally doesn’t do many organised tours when travelling, I was very pleased that I did the Tapas, Taverns & History of Seville Tour. The group size was great and it was a fabulous opportunity to try foods and drinks that I would never have thought to order if on my own. I loved visiting the old tapas bars that have been run by families over the years. Would recommend for an authentic experience.
This tour gave an excellent overview of some of Seville's oldest and most treasured local bars and their specialty drinks and tapas. As someone who already knew the city, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned on the tour. By visiting four different places, you end up sampling a variety of different dishes and drinks, leaving with a very full belly. Overall, the prices of these tours aren't cheap, but neither are the experiences. I'd say you really do get your money's worth in Devour Tour's expertise, the quality of the food and drinks, and the overall experience of the night.
What to Expect on Your Tour
This two-in-one tour gives you the very best of Seville’s tapas, along with the can’t-leave-without-hearing stories of its past! From Julius Caesar to Christopher Columbus and the Moorish conquest to the dark days of the Spanish Inquisition, Seville’s 2,000-year history is packed with famous figures, stories and events that dramatically changed the course of history. You’ll hear those stories and more as you explore Seville’s historic center, popping in and out of family-run bars and tasting the best tapas in the city!
You’ll start the night off at Seville’s oldest tapas bar, where you’ll enjoy the city’s classic aperitif—a glass of vermouth—paired with acorn-fed Iberian ham!
Afterwards, your expert guide will lead the way to a few interesting pockets in the city, and you’ll begin to see Moorish influence left and right. You’ll also come face-to-face with the remains of a Roman temple!
Next up, you’ll visit a tiny tapas bar you might miss if you’re not looking for it! This family-run stop serves fantastic orange wine, and you’ll also try cured Manchego cheese and slow-roasted pork belly drizzled with Spanish olive oil.
A historical walk through Seville wouldn’t be complete without seeing the city’s stunning cathedral. You won’t go inside, but you will get a quick lesson in the largest Gothic cathedral in the world while discovering its Roman and Moorish influences. You’ll then continue on to the beautiful Barrio Santa Cruz, where you’ll hear Seville’s very own version of Romeo and Juliet!
Then it’s time for more tapas! You’ll head to a traditional bar often packed with locals to try one of the city’s most typical tapas—montaditos—little sandwiches filled with all sorts of goodness! You’ll pair these delicious bites with a fantastic local wine, and you’ll also learn the tricks of the trade when it comes to doing tapas like a local!
Afterwards, it’s back to the city to discover a few more of its secrets and hidden plazas. Finally, you’ll end the tour with a sit-down meal of shared plates at a bar that’s been doing creative Spanish food since way before it became popular! You’ll also get to try a truly delicious wine from Andalusia that pairs perfectly with this restaurant’s specialty tapas. And of course, you’ll finish the night off with a little something sweet!
