Wonderful day trip. Full day with LOTS to see. Guide was excellent with history and context. Nice amount of time for lunch with great selection of places. Wonderful day - well worth the price.

The Andalusian Horse Show was the highlight of this trip, but it was also interesting to learn how sherry was made and to get a brief visit to Cadiz. Very helpful tour guide who sorted out some problems at the beginning of the trip and got everything running smoothly.

What a beautiful day. The horse show was absolutely stunning. Cadiz was very pretty and gave us an opportunity to stroll and eat by the sea. Our guide was lovely. A day well spent.

Excellent trip and very well organised. Pick up no problem. Try to go on a Thursday when there is actually a horse show . We went on a Tuesday and only saw practising but still well worth while. Sherry bodega excellent, guide was very good and answered any questions. Cadiz is a lovely place and I would recommend going on the open top bus trip which leaves from the central square. I didn't and regret it! Thoroughly recommend.

This was a great tour, loved the Andalusian Horses, the sherry tour was very informative. In Cadiz there was about an hour for a quick lunch and look around before we went to the tower with 360 degree views, very informative! A ferry ride, then the bus back to Seville! A great day out!!

This tour was the only tour we arranged for our stay in Seville, and it turned out to be a very good choice, although it didn't start all that well. The bus was late collecting us, the tour guide thought I had a booking for one person not two, the bus was smaller than we expected and not particularly comfortable, and the microphone packed up shortly after the start of the tour. And then there was the man who was continually on his phone for the first hour or so of the trip. By the time we reached our first stop, the González Byass winery, I was starting to wonder about our decision to take the tour. But fortunately things improved as we got into the tour proper. Our visit to the winery was entertaining, and we were impressed by the set up. This winery, famous for its Tio Pepe sherry, has a very rich history, and is a very large setup. I've seen a lot of cellar doors and tasting rooms in my time, but the one at González Byass is bigger and better organized than anything I've seen. And the tasting, although only two glasses, was enjoyable. Following our stop at González Byass we headed off to the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, famous for its training of Andalusian horses, where we attended a show of the famous horses. This was one of the main reasons we chose this tour, and it was a very enjoyable and interesting hour and a half entertainment by these beautiful animals and their talented riders. After our stop at the riding school we headed for Cadiz, the beautiful ancient port city built on a strip of land surrounded by sea. I had planned to take lots of photos while we were in Cadiz, but in the end we finished up spending all our free time enjoying lunch with a group of four Australians from Melbourne whom we had met on the tour. By the time we'd finished lunch it was time to head back to the tour group. The next stop on our itinerary was the Tavira Tower, which gave us a wonderful view over the city. We also got to see a lengthy demonstration of the camera obscura mounted on the tower. A camera obscura uses a combination of lenses and a mirror to project a realtime image onto a horizontal screen in a darkened room below the top of the tower. Our last segment of the tour before the bus trip back to Seville was a very pleasant catamaran trip across the Bay of Cadiz. We got back to our drop off point in Seville about ten and a half hours after we were picked up, so it was a pretty full day, with lots of interesting activities. Our guide, Petra, was a real live wire, and great fun. She coped with the intermittently useless microphone by just raising her already pretty loud voice. We enjoyed her company a lot. We highly recommend this tour.

Great day out. Tour guide excellent. Sherry bodega and Andalucian horses brilliant. Small group so friendly and easy to engage with guide. Free time for lunch in Cadiz more than adequate and ferry trip made a good end to the day. Travelled in comfortable air conditioned minibus. Meeting place in Seville easy to find, very central and five minutes from hotel. Recommended

Totally enjoyed this Day Trip. The tour of the Bodega was drenched in history and very informative and the Tio Pepe Sherry was quite tasty as well. The Andalusian Horse Show was really special, however you can't take pictures during the show. The trip to Cadiz was a little rushed but again very informative. We ended the tour with a ferry ride to Puerto. Aris.

It was alot of fun! Our guide was very friendly and we didn't have to wait very long for anything. It was a great collection of activities put together. Be prepared though that the tour might be given in both languages, one after the other. It wasn't a big problem because he let us walk around and take photos while the other language was being used.

We were picked up on time by our enthusiastic tour guide Petra, who was amazing. Small group of 7 so there was no waiting in line at the events, personal guided tour. Sherry tasting and tour very informative, high light was the Andalusia Horse Show. Lunch in Cadiz, , pretty town, visit the fish market for Tapas and beer. Climb the tower for an amazing view of the city, by Camera Obscura. Ending with a ferry ride, great value, highly recommend this tour.

Petra is a wonderful guide. Great information along the way and enthusiastic about questions asked. We had some rough weather so the boat/ferry ride was cancelled. Love the tour of the stables and watching the training sessions for the Andalusian horse show. All in all a great day.

One of the highlights of Andalucia. The Bordega tour was interesting, especially the sheery tasting. The horse show was enjoyable but the highlight for me was Cadiz. I city I know from History. The singing of the King of Spains beard. Fascinating city where I got to see the real Spain. Travelled home on a catarmaran

The sherry tasting and the Andalusian Horse Academy was excellent, but there was not a show,... Cadiz was a poor tour

One of the best days of my stay in Seville! The visit to the bodega and tasting was superb, we had a guided visit inside the bodega, which is gorgeous! Had a really great time learning all about sherry and tasting different ones. The horse show was amazing, the riders were great too, it was very impressive. It was lovely to see this bit of Andalusian culture, we also got great seats! Then the time spent in Cadiz was very chilled, we had enough free time to explore it and just relax, it's a gorgeous place, the ferry trip really was the cherry on top to finish the day.

The Tour Guide Petra was brilliant, really bubbly and enthusiastic. Enjoyed the sherry tour but dont do what we did and take a large gulp of what we thought was sherry in the shop, only to discover it was sherry vinegar, it was funny at the time ! The horses were magical and its the first time I have seen a camera obscura. Packed alot into the day.

We were in a mini bus with 14 guests in total so very personalised. Our guide, Vivian, was fantastic!! It was a very active day, visiting a sherry bodega and the Andalucian training school for the special andalucian horses in Jerez, then on to Cadiz where we had lunch and time to look around the cathedral and streets. Another activity there was amazing - the Camera Oscura. It gives you a 360degrees view of the town live!! A word of warning - there were an incredible amount of steps to reach it up the tower, so not for anyone less able bodied or with heart or breathing difficulties, which you are asked about by the staff for your own safety. But so worth it if you can make it to the top. Then we went on a lovely half hour ferry trip to the Puerta de Santa Maria. Beautiful views of Cadiz and the coastline from the boat. So a very active and long day but well worth it!! I had thought when booking this trip that it was rather expensive, but when you realise that all entrances are included which I estimated at 60 of the cost, and you have the opportunity to experience so many activities, I can honestly say it was well worth the money!!!

Our guide and coach arrived at our hotel to pick us up for this most delightful trip. Firstly we went to Jerez for the sherry tasting, this was most informative then onto the Andalusian Horse Show just down the road. My partner and I both thoroughly enjoyed this, it was most relaxing to watch. Then it was onto Cadiz where we had some free time to admire the views and have our lunch. We then went on the most extraordinary tour with our guide which was the most unusual experience however, I wont spoil the surprize. Then we finished with a ferry ride back to our coach and then returning to our hotel. A most enjoyable day was had by all. Fully recommend this trip has a must see.
