Another way to get to know Seville: a cruise on the Guadalquivir river

There are 2 modalities for the cruises in Seville: The first of them is to take a cruise at the Guadalquivir river for several days (there are options for 4, 6 and 8 days). The routes do from Seville to Cadiz, but they can include also the Port of Santa Maria and some ground tours depending of the duration of the trip. The prices for this kind od cruises varies from 400 to 1000 euros. You can visit the websites of Cruceros Guadalquivir and Cruceros Diferentes to get more information.

However, if you want to make a brief tour at the Guadalquivir river, there is the second option, that is to take a half-day tour, from the maritim station of La Torre del Oro, to San Lúcar Barrameda, coming back by bus. The price of this kind of excursion is around 35 euros.
