About
This is the tapas tour you want to take if you don't want to feel like you are on a tour. I have lived in Sevilla since 1993 and started my internationally recognised food & wine website in 2007. I am also a certified Sherry Educator. My tapas tours grew organically via the site, and I have been happily taking people out on “tapeos” for more than ten years. So join me and my team to experience an authentic tapas crawl with small groups of 2-6 people (you would never see locals going out in groups of 10-12). We'll visit some of Sevilla’s best bars and enjoy an excellent selection of tapas & wines while learning about the art of bar-hopping, tapas etiquette, and the origins and history of tapas. Lunchtime or evening tapas tours last about 3.5 hours. Click on the website link to see other options available such as Market & Tapas, Flamenco & Tapas, Sherry & Tapas... it's all about the tapas!

Our group did two tours this week, hosted by Shawn’s colleague, the amazing and hilarious José. The first was for 8 of us, in Santa Cruz where we sampled orange wine, tapas & (generous amounts of) refreshments. Shawn’s recommendations were delicious and diverse. The neighbourhood tour and commentary provided by José was first rate; the French Canadians in our group loved the banter! Our second tour through Triana, there were just 5 of us. We felt like locals, sampling delicious tapas, wine and ice cold sherry at lovely (yet non-touristy) establishments- with a couple of little surprises along the way. I highly recommend Azahar tours for true foodies who are willing to try anything and everything, although we were assured that those with alternative dietary needs (ie. vegan and vegetarian) could and would be accommodated. All in all, a great experience. Shawn is fun and professional. Communication is easy. Easily the hi-light of our week in Seville. Come hungry!

I wish there was somewhere we could give 5 stars to our guests because you guys would totally be up there. José and I had the best time taking you and your friends around and showing you different parts of town. Looking forward to a return visit! Thanks so much for taking time to write such a great review.

We had an amazing day with Shawn on the Tasting Triana tour. This was our second tour - the first was back in Sept 2018 - and we couldn't recommend it more. Shawn is so welcoming, and her tips and insights give you all you need to properly experience the city. The food and Sherry were incredible, and Shawn went above and beyond by suggesting a tailored itinerary for our remaining time in Seville (which we followed, and it didn't disappoint!). It was really interesting to hear more about the history of Triana, and we loved it so much we headed straight back the same evening. We're already looking forward to our next visit and getting booked in for a Sherry tasting. Thanks, Shawn!

We did this tour as we arrived in Sevilla, as a chance to orient ourselves and acclimatize. We were lucky enough to be accompanies by Shawn and Mario, and we enjoyed the tour immensely. Shawn was so knowledgeable about the city, the restaurants and the food, wine and sherry. Really wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of the Azahar Sevilla tours to anyone lucky enough to visit this wonderful city.

We booked a tour with Shawn as early as possible after we arrived in Seville. This gave us the opportunity to try out her “takeaway list” of other suggestions later on during our stay.

Shawn’s locations are all carefully chosen, and she kept us informed and entertained during the tour. We really enjoyed our time with her, and the food and locations she suggested. We managed to try a lot of locations and food we would never have found on our own. Groups are small, and it’s a very personal and tailored experience.

Highly recommended for a real tapas experience in Seville.

Hey, thanks so much for this. Also glad that you also enjoyed my other recommendations after our evening out (this is why it's a good idea to do this when you first arrive). Yes, I am quite liking the private small groups and think I will keep things this way even after we eventually become "post Covid". Hope to see you again!

The tour was terrific ! Shawn provided some great insight into the Tapas, bar, and restaurant scene in Sevilla. The Tapas and drinks we consumed along the way were great. A very enjoyable / delicious way to explore the city.

We arrived in Sevilla, and hours later met Shawn for a tour of three tapas restaurants. We loved experiencing Sevilla on our first night here, with someone who loves her city, and not only informed but entertained us. Most importantly, we felt by the end of the evening like we had spent time with an old friend.

Additional benefits of touring with Azahar is that Shawn is so knowledgeable about other areas of Spain. We now have personal recommendations for Granada, Costa del Sol, and Madrid, that will help us enjoy the rest of our time in Spain!

Thanks Shawn, we look forward to seeing you again!

Based on the reviews, my wife and I made arrangements for the tour with Shawn for Feb 29/2020. Communication before was very good and it was nice that she was a fellow Canadian! Shawn is a lovely, delightful and informative guide. She took us to places that we never would have found on our own. The tour was paired with another couple that we got along with very well so as the night and sherry progressed, it was more friends doing a tapas crawl than a formal tour which suited us fine. Shawn also gave us a wealth of information so that we could continue afterwards on our own. Great suggestions with tailored details left our stomachs full and gave the liver a workout!

I highly recommend Shawn if you want a friendly, intimate and informative primer into the gastronomical delights of Seville. Thanks Shawn, I am sorry it took so long to write this review.

Zul! What a lovely surprise - thanks so much for this fab review. Yes, you guys got in there just before everything shut down. What a great time we had. And it was so fun when you sent me that whatsapp pic of you meeting up for tapas in Triana the next day with Nisha & Neel. Love that you also made new friends on our night out. Looking forward to happier times and maybe seeing you here again. Take care. xx

If you are thinking about visiting Sevilla, don't think any further. Book yourself four or five days in this wonderfully friendly and beautiful Spanish city.

Once you've booked your hotel and your flights the next thing you simply must do it to book a bespoke tapas tour with Shawn from Sevilla Tapas. Honestly it the best thing we did. Plan it in for day one and it will give you confidence to explore the city with new eyes.

We spent over four hours with the brilliant and, oh so knowledgable, Shawn from Sevilla Tapas. A Canadian living in Sevilla for the lat 30years and what she doesn't know about the best, most authentic tapas, local wines and sherry, isn't worth knowing.

Three tapas restaurants with very different styles and feels, a range of complimentary wines and sherry, new tastes, a new language and a new experience.

Please, book with Shawn. You won't regret it and it will change your trip from being lovely, to one that you won't forget.

If you are looking for a tapas tour with excellent customer service, an intimate vibe and a host with an exceptional knowledge of the food, wine and history of Sevilla, Azahar Tapas Tours is where it's at. My wife and I didn't know what to expect when we arrived in Sevilla shortly after the borders opened up to U.S. tourists. With most tours sidelined due to group size or just plain shut down, we didn't have many options. When I came upon Azahar Tapas I thought we would be denied once again. I was able to talk to Shawn who owns the business and instead of turning us away she created a fantastic experience at no cost! Talk about going above and beyond. Shawn decided to create a "virtual tapas tour" on the spot since she was unable to provide a personal tour for us. This turned out to be amazing! Think scavenger hunt game. My wife and I and a friend would go to a tapas bar, where Shawn would tell us what to order. She would provide some history of the establishment, what to drink and tell us a little about what we were eating. When we would get our food, we would send her photos. When we were done, she would send us to our next tapas bar. The whole experience was great! While she should definitely make this an option on the her business page, I am going to sign up for the personal tour next time we are in Savilla. The best customer service I have ever experienced. Thanks again Shawn.

Hey Blake - thanks so much for my first review since lockdown last year! Wasn't our "night out" fun? I'm so glad I was able to do something, especially as I'd just received my second vaccination shot and, although you guys were also fully vaccinated, I still had to wait a couple of weeks for it to kick in. Gotta say that Tapas Tour by WhatsApp was a new one for me too, but it worked really well sending you the map links one by one with a list of what to order at each place, since they all have their own specialities. Loved that when you showed the tapas list at one of the bars they said "that's Shawn, isn't it?". On a Saturday night when I would otherwise have just been Netflixing with the cats, it was fun waiting for your photos and comments, so I should be thanking you for keeping me company all evening! Who knows, maybe I will start offering this as a new tour option. Looking forward to taking you guys out when you come back to visit. I'm even more fun in person! :)

Shawn introduced us to new culinary experiences and a different lifestyle. As a family of 8, we shared plenty to eat and drink as Shawn informed us and advised us. It was a terrific tour and a good way to begin a visit to Sevilla!
