Description

Seville certainly is one of the most beloved places by visitors to Spain. Although today Moorish influence is architectonically most evident, Andalusia was occupied by Moors for about 800 years and it was a cultural center long before. The fertility of this land and its favored climate with mild winters and about 3,000 hours of sun per year draws people all year long to enjoy the historic streets.

Your drive from Cadiz is about 1 hour and 20 minutes, and, if you would like to add this service, your guide will narrate with history as you travel. It is an exciting entrance when driving into the city. Its bustle and beauty are all around you. You'll begin with a panoramic drive around the historic city centre, where the buggies and cars on the streets with you become part of the ingredients of your experience. This drive will help acclimate you for the walking portion of the tour that follows. The magnificent Macarena Wall, the Seville Bull Ring, and the Golden Tower are comfortably viewed from your vehicle.

Now you will exit at the Park Maria Luis and the Plaza Espana and begin your walk on the old streets of this city. Part of the old city is a maze and periodically opens up to beautiful small squares of benches and trees within the walls of the city. There is so much to see as you walk and talk. One of the most important museums is the General Archive of the Indies, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set in the old Convent of la Merced, built in the 18th century by Juan de Oviedo, it is arranged around three patios. The display of art and collectibles is lovely, but most impressive is the building itself and its setting, which is exactly the image of Seville.

The Royal Chapel and Orange Tree Courtyard are another highlight of the city. Walk the winding streets of the Jewish Quarter and see the Cathedral and the tomb of Christopher Columbus. Your walking tour will last about 3 hours, and this is the best way to really experience the city. During your walk, you will also see the Real Alcazar Palace, another UNESCO World Heritage Site and explore Santa Cruz area in total. Also included in your tour is a visit to a former tobacco factory, once a mainstay of the economics of the city.

Though lunch is not included, your guide will make some suggestions based on your palate. Many opt to dine in a flamenco tavern and that is highly recommended.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
