Full description
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.

Departing from the northern columns of the Alameda de Hercules, named after the white poplar trees that fill its central section, set off to discover alternative bars, shops, bookstores, workshops, art galleries, and bohemian corners.

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.
If you join our morning tour you will also visit the oldest market in Seville at Calle Feria and enjoy the authentic ambiance there while sipping a drink.

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.

Superb tour

We very much enjoyed our walking tour through Seville. Jose, our guide, was great and very kind. As a real Sevillan, he knew a lot about the city and its history. We discovered places where only few tourists go, strolled around typical spanish markets and visited nice patios. Jose fully tailored the tour to our interests & needs, even included a playground-stop for our little daughter. His restaurant recommendations have been delicious. The tour has been so much fun, that we very much appreciated that Jose extended the lenght of it very generously. At all, we can just recommend to book that tour with Jose.

An enlightening and unrushed view of the Macarena section of Seville.

David was a great guide- He took our group for a leisurely stroll, and pointed out the main points of interest, along the way. He did not stick with the typical politically correct travel guide script, and seemed open to responding to any and all questions. Getting an introduction to this area was a gift, and was a refreshing and peaceful change from the zoo of the tourist traps in the Cathedral-Palace area. My husband and I returned to this neighborhood for dinner, where we enjoyed a peaceful stroll and a delicious, reasonably-priced meal. Thank you, David!
