Open Top Tour Bus In Seville

Buying a ticket of an open top tour bus is a great choice to visit Seville especially if you are in a hurry and you’d like to have a good taste of the city while you’re there. The bus will drive you through the main monuments and highlights and you’ll get an explanation of each of them in your preferred language.

The open top tour bus is based on a hop-on hop-off system. In other words, you can get off and get back into the bus as many times as you like at any of the bus stops. The ticket is valid for 48 hours (both CitySightseeing and Sevirama). So this means that you can spend as much as you want in each stop walking around and eventually you catch the bus later on at a different stop.

You can either spend the whole day hoping in and off, using the bus as a regular transport. Or you can catch it a little bit before the sunset when the light is absolutely fantastic. As the sun fades away, you’ll see all the sights and attractions light and it’s just wonderful.

There are two companies operating in Seville. Both offer similar services.

Then, the bus continues its way to show you the beautiful architectural complex created for the the Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair that took place in Seville in 1929.

The ticket includes a guided walking tour of one hour. The tour is led by a guide who speaks both Spanish and English. Usually the morning walking tour is around Triana, an area often underrated by foreigners but full of charm and for some the cradle of Andalusia. Then, in the afternoon, you can stroll around the Barrio de Santa Cruz, the oldest part of Seville where most of the monuments and exciting places are located.

You can also download a map so you can then visit the surrounding area when you get off the bus.
