About the Tour

Discover the Guadalquivir at night with a 2-hour kayak ride. Admire the main illuminated attractions of the city from the river while enjoying a relaxed and noise-free kayaking experience when there is no traffic on the river, you will have the feeling that you are in the middle of nature.
You will get a different point of view of the city, while exercising the body. Also, we will enjoy a beautiful sunset on the historic river, the reflection of the light in the water and the colors are totally incredible! It is a really pleasant experience, for these hot days, it is very pleasant, it adapts to the group and the dynamics are adapted for any general public. We will visit the emblems of the city such as the Torre del Oro, a historic tower from the Almohad period, the Triana neighborhood, the place where many flamenco singers were born or the Cartuja monastery where Colón lived for a time, they have a dramatic aspect of the river bank. The replica of the Nao Victoria, used by Magellan in 1519 to undertake the first round the world. Our river is the natural and historical channel of the river that has been transformed into the inner dock, therefore, the movement in the kayak is quite easy and safe because there is no current of water. In 5 minutes we will show you how the activity will take place, we will do an information session (instruction) on land where you will learn to row and direct the kayak. The instructor will also do a photographic report with Go Pro, which you can later download and be able to give envy on your social networks. The cost of renting the equipment is € 20, but the cost of the guided tour across the river will be a free tour model, based on tips :). Tip: Bring your dry clothes and then you can shower.

La visite guidée de Séville en Kayak dans le Guadalquivir avec Manuel Ramòn était une très belle expérience. Nous avons appris des choses sur l'histoire. Le guide est très sympathique et professionnel. Il nous a arrangé l'horaire à notre convenance et à la fin de la visite, il nous a déposés au coin le plus pratique. Je recommande!

Really a nice alternative to the standard walking tour, gives you a totally different look at the city and nice to see many other people enjoying watersports on the river. If you're new to Sevilla you still need to do another walking tour to learn about the monuments and history but for a return visitor or as a second tour, this is really great. Ramón is top notch.

It was a great tour and a very novel experience to do it all from a kayak! The equipment was all in excellent condition and the river was peaceful - no need to be any sort of athlete to be able to enjoy the trip! It was all very easy to pick-up and Manuel was at hand to answer any questions. He went at a nice pace to give you the time to take some fun photos and enjoy the gentle breeze on the river, and pointed out the key spots along the way. I loved being able to be active while also learning about the city from someone who makes the city's history so tangible and interesting .. it felt like a mini-adventure!

Unfortunately Manuel somehow thought the booking time was 6:30.

Response from Manuel Ramón
I am really sorry about the misunderstanding. I ask that people confirm they will be coming prior to 6:30 and I hadn't received any message for this tour. Nevertheless, I have updated the meeting time so that now it is clearer.
