Full description
Discover the river the Romans named Betis, now known as Guadalquivir River, meaning "the Big River" in Arabic. It holds many stories and fun facts about the history of Seville. Let your experienced professional guide take you on a journey through some of Seville's most important historical moments such as the discovery of America and the first trip around the world. See sights such as Isla de La Cartuja, Maestranza, El Barrio del Arenal and the Universal Exhibition of 1992. Find out why this river was very important during the golden era of Seville, which lasted about 150 years. Seville was the main port of Europe for incoming goods from America such as gold, silver and tobacco. The river was sanded in the 17th century and Seville became less important. For the Expo 92, the river was restored and it is now used for cruises and kayaking.

If you want to see the sights then stick to the cycle tour. But if you want fun and exercise then kayaking down the Guadalquivir is a lovely experience. Lots of professional rowers and canoeists using the river, as well as school trips which all adds to the atmosphere. We kept having bursts of trying to keep up with the pros as they raced past us. Worth knowing - the start point is from a proper rowing club with facilities so do take spare clothes and towel so you can shower and change afterwards.

Excellent and very pleasant moment!

My husband and I went to this kayaking session and truly enjoyed it. It’s nice way to visit the riverside. Our guide was very nice, engaging and took us to the history of Sevilla. I recommend it. Side note: we had booked it for 1 day earlier and were told the session was fully booked, therefore were rescheduled. Fortunately we had planned to stay on the Monday too and extended our weekend....

A great way to be active and enjoy a different perspective of Seville

Our kayak guide (Peter) was great - very friendly and informative. Loved the little extra bits of info and stories that you wouldn't get from a guide book. Our children (aged 11 and 8 years) had great fun - the amount of time spent kayaking was just right for them - although we have all done kayaking before. It may have been a bit trickier if the river was busier. The office had good toilet and changing facilities. We did have to wait around a little for the office to open though, so our tour started slightly later than the official start time.
