Overview
For a relatively crowd-free experience of the Alcázar of Seville, opt for an early-access tour. By entering the UNESCO World Heritage Site before it opens to the public, you’ll avoid long lines—often in excess of two hours—and take crowd-free photos of the landmark’s gorgeous interior. Plus, you’ll visit parts of the complex that conventional tours don’t. Upgraded package includes a line-free exploration of Seville Cathedral and Giralda Tower.
What to Expect
Your early-access tour begins at a designated meeting point near the Alcázar of Seville in the morning. Early entry means you’ll avoid the long lines that often form outside the landmark, and therefore explore the UNESCO-listed landmark in relative tranquility.

Follow your guide through the Rooms of Charles V, Patio of the Maidens, Plaster Patio, Hunting Patio, Horseshoe Arches, and Ambassador's Room, all the while listening to commentary designed to bring history to life.

Your tour concludes outside of the Alcázar of Seville.

Upgrade: Seville Cathedral Skip-the-Line Entry and Guided Tour
If you’ve upgraded your tour, continue to Seville Cathedral—the largest Gothic cathedral in the world—bypassing long queues with a skip-the-line ticket.

Once inside, explore some of the cathedral’s 80 chapels and admire artwork by Spanish painters like Goya and Murillo. Ascend to the Moorish Giralda Tower and what is probably the oldest building in Seville.

Alcazar of Seville

Excellent tour, start of the day much quieter and we skipped the queue which had started building by 9am. The guide, Vincente, gave lots of insight into the cultural background and seemed very knowledgeable. His English was also excellent so we had no problems understanding...More

Informative tour of Alcazar

I chose this tour because I wanted to get some historical background instead of just looking at the pretty building. Vincent showed up on time, and our group lined up at the entrance as the first group and we were the first ones in Alcazar!...More

Great Tour of the Alcazar and Cathedral

Vincente (Vince) was a great guide from Amigo Tours Seville. He spoke excellent English and was very understandable. He had a lot of great stories and history to tell about both the Alcazar and the Cathedral. I highly recommend Vince and Amigo Tours.More

It is a guided tour. We did this and Vincente our guide gave us a wealth of information that we would never have picked up by going on our own. I can definitely say, it is well worth it.
