25 Photos That Will Make You Jump On a Seville Tapas Tour

Seville Spain Tapa Tour

We took not one, but TWO amazing Seville tapas tours on our last visit! This had us sipping on vermouth, and enjoying so many delicious snacks while exploring the city. We even combined it with a traditional Flamenco show that completely blew us away. Here are 25 photos that will make you want to jump on a Seville food tour to taste endless tapas like we did! 

How to Pick the Best Seville Tapas Tour

It can be overwhelming to choose the right Seville tapas tour, especially if it’s your first visit. For this reason, we decided to take two different ones with Devour.

The Traditional Flamenco & Tapas Evening Tour and Seville Tapas, Taverns & History are also two of the most highly rated tours on Tripadvisor. It was such a great way to hit the Seville tapas bars and take in the local culture of the city.

Seville Tapas Tour & Flamingo Show

On the first night we met our small group and jumped right into tapa hopping. We started at a spot just a few blocks away from our meeting point. This was the type of restaurant that you knew would be good as soon as you walked in.

Our tapas tour in Seville began with trying the local vermouth. Forget every preconceived notion you may have about this drink. If you’re coming from the United States like us, know that it’s not just a mixer for Martinis!

Vermouth is a fortified wine that has been distilled and infused with herbs. Before trying it on our Seville tapas tour, we would’ve never thought it could be so good.

It’s often the first drink people have in Spain to start out a night of tapa hopping. While vermouth is certainly tasty, the star of the show is definitely the food!

We started out our tour with a selection of four meats. The Chorizo, Lomo, Salchichon, and Chicharron were some of the best tapas we had in Seville.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, another incredible addition popped out of the kitchen. These small little bocadillos were nothing like your average sandwich. They were warm, juicy, and bursting with flavor. 

The toasted bread comes with a spread called “pringa” which is a popular stewed meat. Be sure to try this on your own tapas tour in Seville.

Seville Flamenco Show 

After our first Seville tapas tour stop, we walked through the city and learned all about the history. They were actually setting up for the Semana Santa celebration which was taking place the following week.

We arrived right on time for the show that we were most excited for. It was our first time seeing live Flamenco, which is a popular song and dance from Andalusia region.

It was so nice that our Seville food tour included information about this beforehand. We knew that Flamenco originated in this city, but had no idea how it came to be.

The place we went to watch the show was completely unique and intimate. There was probably only thirty other people there, so it felt like we had our own private show!

Our Seville food tour guide also told us that it wasn’t a staged performance either. The dancers and singers are always switched up, and everything was improvised.

Flamenco is intense to say the least, and you could really feel the emotion from the stage. What a fun experience!

Seville Food Tour Dinner

Once the Flamenco show was over, we headed to a beautiful local restaurant down the street. Here we had a mix of Spanish fusion dishes that really rocked our world.

This was more like an official dinner, as we shared large portions of Seville tapas together at the table. Some of our favorite dishes were the chicken liver pate, hummus with toasted pita, and pork.

However, the clear winner of the night was the cuttlefish ink spaghetti with scallops, shrimp, and goulas! We even got a lesson on Spanish wine here while tasting two different blends.

We spent our second day wandering around the city and taking in the sights. One of the highlights of our entire trip was seeing the Royal Alcazar of Seville before it opened. Check out this article for how to get exclusive access to the palace. 

When the sun started to set, it was time for another Seville tapas tour (this was the one we did). What was different about this tour is that it didn’t have Flamenco show. While we could’ve easily taken in another show, this just meant more time for tapas!

The first stop just had that look. Massive legs of jamón ibérico hung from the ceiling, and we were immediately served tostadas with the famous Spanish meat.

Next up on our tapas tour in Seville was a small hole in the wall near the cathedral. We squeezed in the tight space with our group and had a scrumptious plate of pork with manchego cheese.

The drink we got to try with our tapa here was an orange wine. This is a specialty of Sevilla, and something we had been dying to taste.

This bar was definitely somewhere we would’ve missed if we weren’t on a Devour tour. It’s easy to see why we love booking food and city tours with this company!

We then switched it up and went to a large bar in the city center. Our guide told us this spot is so popular, we had to line up to be the first ones in!

The moment the doors opened there was a rush to get a table. In the blink of an eye, the entire restaurant filled with people ready to order some of the best tapas in Seville.

We were served a delicious portion of meat tapas and bacalao fish. This time we tried a dry sherry with our food, which was a nice switch up from the vermouth.

Grand Finale of Our Seville Tapas Tour

We sat down for a more family-style meal with shared plates for the final stop on this Seville food tour. This was the perfect way to end our first night and it ensured no one went home hungry!

We drank wine, ate way more than we should have, and had a great finish to our time in Seville. Some of the local hits here were fried shark, beef loin, and a sweet flan for dessert.

    This got me reminiscing about our honeymoon trip to Seville a few years ago. The tapas culture there is truly something special. I remember stumbling upon a quaint little tavern tucked away in a narrow alley, where we enjoyed the most amazing array of tapas. The atmosphere was so lively and we had a lot of fun!
