Full description

Explore Seville’s Alcázar on a guided tour of one of the oldest functioning palaces in Europe. See why this palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, how it blends different architectural types, and why it became the setting for Lawrence of Arabia and Game of Thrones.

Choose from either a small-group or private tour to suit the experience you're looking for.  Meet your guide in the Plaza del Triunfo, which offers great views of the Giralda. After using the priority entrance to enter the palace you will begin the tour at the Patio del León, the site of the original Moorish palace.

Hear about how Moorish and Christian styles were blended after the Reconquista to create a palace that was emblematic of Mudéjar architecture. Visit examples of newer post-Reconquista architecture, such as the Casa de la Contratación and chapel, before heading to the Palacio del Don Rey Pedro, a perfect example of Mudéjar architecture. Discover the Patio de las Doncellas and grand Ambassadors’ Salón as featured in Game of Thrones. Both incorporate intricate carved detailing and colorful Islamic-style tiling.

After this, take a look around the Gothic Palace with its royal tapestries and ornate tiling. Stroll around orange-tree-filled gardens at your own leisure after the tour. After your guide drops you in the gardens, take in the peacocks that live there, the smell of orange blossom, and the numerous tranquil water features.

Try the labyrinth maze and enjoy the quietness of the gardens that are unbelievably located in the middle of the city.

Magnificent places. Our guide Pablo was very friendly, with good French. We were a couple and a family of 4 so small group very well. There is enough to cool off almost throughout the visit thanks to the fountains. Both the palace and the gardens are magnificent. We were lucky enough to see peacocks.

The guide was interesting with historic and architectural information. The length was perfect for us. The headphone worked better than some I’ve worn on other tours. The fact that it was all English (vs bilingual) was important in that it reduced our fatigue level with listening overall. Very enjoyable. A little difficult meeting the specific tour. Knowing that you booked with “get your guide” is not enough since tours are implemented by different local companies.

Tour really helped us appreciate the Alcazar in all its beauty and grandeur. Our guide, Libertad, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely glad i signed up for a tour and didn’t just go on my own. Tour wasn’t too long either plus we did avoid a very long line and had plenty of time afterwards to explore on our own.
