Access Seville's Feria de Abril
The city of Seville hosts an annual festival at the end of April or in early May – two weeks after Holy Week – internationally known as Feria de Sevilla or Seville April Fair.
The Feria is the ultimate event on the sevillano social calendar. This is one party where you need to know the right people. To get into a caseta – almost all of the nearly 1,000-odd covered locales are privately-owned – you will need an invitation. To live the insider experience – hear the flamenco-style music, see the foot-stomping dancing, sample the fare, feel the adrenaline and intensity of Spaniards partying as only they can and enjoy the cheerful and hospitable character of the people – you need to be accompanied by those you can get in.
Paladar y Tomar gives you unique access to this exclusive event where you will be able to feel the grandiosity of Hispalis culture and revel in its unique aesthetic.
Seville, end of journey
IDEAL LENGTH: 3 NIGHTS ✧ WHEN TO GO: 18-24 April 2021
Arrival to Seville. Private transfer to your hotel and time to relax.
Tonight, time for your first immersive experience in Andalusia with a must-to-attend tapas tour style dinner. That’s the way we mostly eat in Seville and Andalusia, we like ordering several small portions and share them with a glass of wine, and very often by the countertop. Tapear has become a must for any foodie. Don't be surprised if you see the city is less crowded, it's just that sevillanos are partying in the feria.
Experience first hand from the very first second the inner Andalusian spirit.Dinner

Thank you so much for this helpful list! Gary and I are still talking about what a great time we had on the trip to Spain and how much we enjoyed meeting you, Fernando and Felix. You did an amazing job and we so appreciated seeing Spain's beautiful cities, historical treasures and of course the wonderful food, wine and people!
Gary and I wanted to thank you again for your continued care and concern as we spent three additional days in Madrid with the Millars. You and Fernando were so nice to make sure all went well and to see us off when we finally had to depart.
We are wishing you all the best and a wonderful holiday season ahead,
We had a winderful time particularly thanks to your superb arrangements. We will return! Arrivederci Marco
All the private excursions that she arranged were excellent. At some point during every tour our guide received a message from our agent checking in on how everything was going. We felt very well taken care of during our honeymoon and very thankful for all the assistance Valeska provided in making this dream vacation come true.
