Active Gourmet Holidays can offer a variety of customised tours within Spain, including tapas tours in Seville.
The company can adapt all tours to suit individual requirements, and, providing visitors advise them at least 15 days in advance, can cater for groups from between two to 50 people.
Seville is well known for its tapas bars and taverns, for it has the largest number of bars per inhabitant anywhere. Some 4,000 of these offer a wide range of food - meat, seafood, vegetables, olives and cheese.
Bar Giralda specialises in ham and cheese, Bar Rincَn San Eloy and Bodega Santa Cruz offer traditional tapas. The idea is to shift from place to place, eating, drinking and talking with friends or new acquaintances, and for the locals it is a pastime as popular as flamenco or bullfighting.
The tapas bars most accessible to tourists are spread throughout the various barrios (districts), all within walking distance of each other in the historical centre. The main areas are Barrio Santa Cruz, near the cathedral, Centro or La Macarena in the downtown area, Arenal, the former port district and Triana, on the left bank of the Guadalquivir River.
Active Gourment Holidays provides visitors with an English translation of Spanish food and cooking vocabulary. A tapas tour price includes four tapas and four drinks. Cost start at $132 based on two people.
Other excursions available take in the sherry towns of Jerez and Sanlْcar de Barrameda, to the Sierra of Ronda, the Sierra of Grazalema and to the Sierra of Aracena in Huelva.
