Touring Sevilla

Can't decide: take train from Madrid, use Hop On, Hop Off bus to get around OR take coach tour from Madrid which goes through Cordoba and night in Sevilla then goes back to Madrid on next evening train - but coach tour apparently only passes OUTSIDE of the Sevilla Cathedral. I want to go inside! Any advise from someone who's tried either way? Thank you.

Go by yourself. Take the AVE from Madrid. Read Buying Renfe Tickets Online.

In Seville you can see the Cathedral, Giralda Tower, and the Alcazar. Three days in the city would be ideal because there are so many things to see. Seville is one of Spain's cities with the most charm.

I usually stay at the Hotel Becquer because it has a very good location.

I would suggest to take the AVE also. This way you have leisure to tour what and wherever you would like. The only thing that may be a set back on some tours you may have to wait to purchase tickets as for group tours you go right in. Also the benefits of the train you can purchase the renfe spain pass. Which is made especially for tourists so that way you can go where you want and when you want. Also with the spain pass you can map out where you would like to go ahead of time. I would suggest going on the renfe website and would also suggest looking up palace tours. They deal directly with renfe and they also do sightseeing tours. So if you had any particular questions or anything they can help as well.
