First, we will meet in one of the liveliest parts of Seville, Alameda, and from here, we will explore the area and after a short introduction of the history of the district we will arrive at the first tapas spot. After this, we will meander through the streets and see a variety of different tapas places, from a loud and lively stand-up tavern to a tranquil, formal sit-down restaurant.
At each of the tapas bars, you will have a drink and a choice of one plate to share– which means that if you are in a group with a few people, you will get to try a dozen different dishes! After this, we will return back to the meeting point.

Sara was very friendly,knowledgeable and very good company ,lynn and I had a lovely time trying different bars and food and would recommend to this to everyone. Thanks Sara for a great time
I booked an alternative tapas tour prior to visiting Seville, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Not just a tourist purposely set up small tour groups, in fact my wife and I were the only people on our tour! This did make our tour though, as our guides, Jose and Laureline, took us to a number of places around the trendy area of Alameda de Hercules. Jose and Laureline were fantastic; friendly, funny, knowledgeable and took us to some amazing tapas bars. They ordered the food and drink, and it was all delicious. By the end of the night, it didn’t feel like a tour; it felt like we were out with friends. I would highly recommend not just a tourist, in particular the Alternative Tapas tour.
