Seville is a topical city full of contrasts, with such an artistic historic patrimony as rich and extensive as unknown, which we can hardly get to understand.
The traditional tours throughout the city are usually planned as closed circuits, brilliant but lifeless. They are tours, which deny the visitor the possibility of appreciating the link between the past and the vivid present.
We offer the possibility of walking through corners and moments of the history of Seville during two hours and a half, by visiting monuments, squares and a whole series of places that you can only discover with our guides. In the same way you will get delighted in many stories, anecdotes and legends of the historical town of Seville.
At the end of the walks, we will take a moment to rest, to discuss and to give opinions about the visit. At that moment, we will taste the best gastronomy of the city. “Paseando por Sevilla” has the pleasure to invite a “tapa” in a traditional bar of the visited area.
