  • Seville: Authentic & Romantic Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride

    3. Seville: Authentic & Romantic Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride

    This 60-minute horse-drawn carriage ride and tour is the perfect romantic experience in Seville. It’s also a good choice for families, as the driver often lets children sit next to him up front!

    the horse-drawn carriage takes you where no hop on/hop off bus can go: it shows you the real Sevilla. it takes you through the smallest streets and most beautiful parcs. really friendly driver, good context. to us - we weren't able to walk long distances due to circumstances - this was perfect. the even picked us up at the hotel door (well, just around the corner 'cause the hotel street wasn't big enough to let a carriage pass) oh, and if you're a romantic, you'll enjoy especially the trip though the gorguous maria luisa parc!

Without that background the buildings of Alcázar would not have that much meaning to us. He has great sense of humor and was especially patient also with our 2 young kids.

We had an amazing time. Our tour guide Marcus was very informative...really knew his stuff. He brought a fun element to the tour engaging us all the way. The tour was 2 hours long and Marcus did everything to keep us in the shade when in the gardens of Alcazar. The Catheral and Giraldi tower are well worth the visit. Many thanks Kevin and Carol

Laura was an excellent guide. We appreciated her use of technology in being able to show us renderings of historic figures, architecture and changes made to the buildings throughout history.
