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.
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 too 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!
What an amazing and outstanding tour in Seville! We did our tour on Valentine’s Day with Pablo Martin and he did such a great job of leading us around the city, explaining how history blended the food and culture of Seville. We really were impressed by his knowledge and how fun the tour was. We’ve done bike, food and walking tours all over Europe and in the US and this was one of the best, especially after watching all the Devour Tour videos online. Great job Devour and especially Pablo. Salud!
What to Expect
Please note that this description is an example and stops or tastes may vary depending on the season, day of the week, and group size. Regardless of where your tour goes, you always have a delicious experience.
This isn’t just a history tour—and it isn’t just a tapas tour. We’re going to dive deep into the history of Seville, and the food, drinks and bars along the way are all a part of telling that story. We’ll weave through the Jewish Quarter on a history walk, and visit some of the oldest bars in Seville (most over 100 years old)! These are the bars that are packed with locals every night of the week, but don’t worry—we’ll get you in.
You’ll start the night off at Seville’s oldest tapas bar (open since the 1600s!), where you’ll enjoy the city’s classic aperitif—a glass of vermouth—paired with acorn-fed Iberian ham.
Afterwards, your guide will give you a taste of Seville’s history at a couple of important sites. After this, you’ll begin to see Moorish influence left and right—and 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 weren’t looking for it. This bar might be crowded, but that’s okay—they’re expecting us! Throughout this tour we’ll be visiting the can’t-miss spots that are packed with locals and often intimidating to visitors, but we’ll show you the ropes. Here at this family-run stop we’ll try orange wine, a local specialty found only in western Andalusia, and we’ll pair it with cured Manchego cheese and slow-roasted pork belly drizzled with Spanish olive oil.
Then we’ll embark on our 20-minute history walk through the Jewish Quarter and city center. We’ll get to know the Cathedral from the outside and hear Seville’s very own Romeo and Juliet story, among other highlights.
Now it’s time for more tapas! At this traditional bar often packed with locals you’ll try one of the city’s most typical bites: montaditos. These little sandwiches are filled with unbeatable combinations of regional ingredients. We’ll pair them with a dry manzanilla sherry, and make sure you know exactly how to order next time you’re out on your own.
After exploring a few more of Seville’s hidden streets and plazas, we’ll head to our last stop. This iconic local tavern is the newest of the night at “only” 40+ years old! It’s been run by the same owner for all of those 40 years, and he’s still at the restaurant every night to greet his guests. We’ve been on our feet for a while by now, so we’re going to take a seat here and enjoy the creative Spanish food they’ve perfected (since they’ve been doing it since long before it became trendy). While eating, we’ll sip an Andalusian wine, and we’ll finish the night off with a little something sweet!
By the time we part ways, you’ll have seen some of Seville’s top sights and eaten at the city’s most beloved bars. More than that, you’ll understand how the two go hand in hand.
