Attraction details
Owner description: On our relaxed and casual tapas tours you can experience some of Sevilla’s best tapas bars and enjoy an excellent selection of tapas & wines. Lunchtime or evening tours are available, with all-inclusive or pay-as-you-go options. We offer several tapas tour routes, each focusing on a particular barrio (neighbourhood) and tailormade to suit your tastes. The usual duration is approximately 3 hours. Our Market & Tapas Tours will take you to two markets, one traditional and one modern, where we tell you all about the fresh fish, meats and produce on display, and of course sample some of the culinary delights along the way, then stopping at a market bar for seafood tapas. On our Flamenco & Tapas Tour you will see an hour-long flamenco performance before heading out for an evening of tapas.

At the last minute, I was able to sign up for a tapas tour weigh Shawn's group: myself traveling solo, a couple from California, and a mother/daughter duo from the U.K. Despite being terribly jet lagged, this was the perfect way to start my trip. Shawn took us to three great tapas bars in Santa Cruz, taught us all about... More

Hola! Well, perhaps not quite a millions tapas bars in Sevilla, though it is often a bit overwhelming when people first arrive. "Spoilt for choice" can easily lead to disappointment when choosing bars at random. I really appreciate you taking the time to write such a positive review. And I hope you reached your personal goal of eating your body... More

The evening spent with Shawn and 2 fellow travellers really was like spending an evening with friends with the added benefit of an interactive Wikipedia of Seville tapas. Encouraged to try fabulous dishes, introduced to the creme de la creme of Seville tapas bars, given knowledge that no guide book could possibly give...just a fabulous tour. Friends at home were...

It was great meeting you and sharing food pics on Twitter after our evening out. I'm always happy when solo travellers can join in because tapas are perfect for sharing. Thanks so much for writing such a nice review. More

We did the tapas tour a few nights ago. Went to places we'd never have found on our own and the food and wine were excellent. Made us realise what average food we'd been eating in Spain up until then! Shawn provided lots of information about food, culture, history etc in an informal and relaxed way? She also gave us...

Thank you so much. I'm glad you enjoyed our evening out as much as I did and I'm especially happy to hear that you have higher regard now for Spanish cuisine. It really is all about knowing where to go, and also what is best to order at each place. Really appreciate the review and perhaps see you back in... More

Sometimes I like to manage travel experiences on my own, but there are times when an expert is truly invaluable. Our evening with Shawn was the latter. She took 4 of us to a flamenco show that was definitely a professional art form. And nowhere else did we have tapas of the quality and variety of the ones we enjoyed... More

Thanks for the terrific review! Yes, that flamenco show is amazing - it never fails to impress. Happy that the tapas we had impressed too. And glad I could also help you out with Cordoba and Tarifa. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. More

My husband and I along with another couple spend a great evening with Shawn. She took us to four wonderful tapas bars. The food we had was the best we have had anywhere in Spain. All of them were small family owned, one of them has four generations working in the bar. We have already back to one for the... More

Gracias Kate! It was a lovely evening, relaxed and fun. Really pleased to hear that the food we had was the best of your visit to Spain and that my tapas bar list was helpful. Hope you managed to find some of that exquisite tinned fish. Many thanks for the review. More

Where do I start...? My wife and I met Shawn in front of the Cathedral early on a Saturday evening, with one other traveller (who was terrific company). Then, with Shawn's expert guidance, we began swiftly manoeuvring and darting around the small, semi-secluded back streets of Seville dropping into a handful of charming bars - avoiding the obvious tourist traps....

Hey, better late than never! And what a fabulous review - you really caught the spirit of the tour. Thank you!

We had a great time with Shawn and learned a lot from our experience. It's hard to know which restaurants will actually serve quality food and furthermore, what each restaurant's specialty dishes are. We went to a couple of places that I would have never guessed had a respectable menu. I find that you can only trust personal recommendations. The... More

Thank you! I agree that it's fun when "strangers" come together over great food and wine, as everyone brings something different to the table (so to speak). And yes, I do like taking people to places they wouldn't have gone into on their own - glad you enjoyed that too. Really appreciate you taking the time to write such a... More

This was the best way to start off a visit in Seville!

What a terrific evening. We met Shawn and two other travellers then proceeded through the maze of little back streets and alleyways past all the tourist traps to places we'd never have found on our own. Shawn - originally from Canada - is a fantastically engaging and enthusiastic host who genuinely loves the city, it's food and culture. Possibly her... More
