Off the Beaten Path Seville Tour
Discover hidden corners in the old neighborhoods of Seville on a 2-hour walking tour with an alternative twist. See art workshops, explore where the city’s residents get creative, and wander the streets of some of the most characteristic districts.
- Explore old neighborhoods of Seville to see alternative sights
- Learn how Seville’s residents have responded to the economic crisis
- Get off the usual tourist trail to see a more local side of Seville
- Visit flea markets, alternative flamenco workshops, and more
Be more than just a tourist on this creative 2-hour walking tour of some of Seville’s alternative sights.
Ideal for those that have done the cathedral, Giralda, and Alcázar, or for those who prefer their tours less off-the-shelf, you will visit places where the locals hang-out, and where no one will look at you as a tourist.
The itinerary is partly a creative response to the economic crisis in Spain, as experienced in some of Seville’s less wealthy neighborhoods, such as Alameda and Macarena. You will see first-hand how the successful fusion of old spaces and modern ideas is being utilized.
Open the door to an alternative Seville; a city bustling with new ideas and conquered by a new generation of people, places, jobs, ways of entertainment, and culinary habits.

We met Michael and Fred at the Alemeda de Hercules to begin our tour none of us had been to Seville before so we were open to learning whatever we could. As we strolled through the streets (almost always in the shade on a hot sunny day), Michael and Fred shared with us information on the cultural, religious and architectural history of Seville as well as information about current life in the city. Our tour was about 21/2 hours and took us to several different neighborhoods and gave us a great introduction to Seville.

We went on an alternative walking tour with Masha. It was a fantastic experience that took us around the less wandered quarters of the old city, made us glance into backyards and showed us how people following an alternative lifestyle do work and live here in Seville. We got great advice on going and dining out and saw places we would have never found on our own.
Masha was really good at handling and answering our questions and to put things in persepctive for us.
As said, a fantastic tour, that served as agreat introduction to Seville.
