Secrets of Cadiz
Experience more than 3000 years of history in just one tour. This Cadiz tour introduces you to Europe's oldest city, a city rich with attractions both modern and ancient. Here's your chance to travel back in time and watch history unfold for yourself.
Your tour begins near the port, where you'll meet your guide. From there, you'll board an air-conditioned minibus and proceed toward the first of many points of interest: Puerta de Tierra, which served to protect the city of Cadiz from invaders. From there, you will continue onward to Campo Sur to witness the incredible La Caleta Beach. Although it's a tiny beach, it has served as a big inspiration to the likes of artists and writers like Paco Alba and Carlos Cano. Other notable attractions include Falla Theatre, Genoves Park and Mina Square.
The star of the Cadiz sightseeing tour, however, is the final stop: Populo. This medieval quarter that dates back to the 13th century and is widely known for its stone gates, which Christopher Columbus walked through to start his second journey. There's a lot of exploration to do on the 2 hour walking portion of your Cadiz tour, and you will get hungry. Throughout the trek, there are multiple stops for refreshments and tapas. The list of attractions above is by no means exclusive; there are dozens more that you will encounter throughout the extensive tour. For a comprehensive look at the city, make your reservation today.

This tour was interesting and our guide tried to garner our attention and engage the visitors in our group. We learned a lot about the architecture.

Booked this tour thru, Shore Excursions. Met at the outside the travel and tourism office right off the port. The two tour guides Carolina & Mario were not very identifiable. We rode around on the bus for a few stops & them began a walking tour. At the beginning it was extremely hard to hear and understand the tour guides. VOX headsets would have been a help. Visited Santa Caterina castle. We then separated into two groups, Mario began the walking tour and Carolina went with the bus and the others elsewhere. Mario was excellent and took us around Cadiz. He took us to the market which was impressive. He gave recommendations to eat & drink reasonably at the kiosks at the market. We received a lot of history of Cadiz. This tour was good, but appeared to be thrown together and lacked structure. I use Viator a lot and have found their tours to be far more professional. If this tour operator wants to succeed, has to get their act together and be more organized.

The Cadiz trip turned out great, as the guide was excellent. But started 30 minutes late due to mix-ups. Our names and the Brown’s and 8 other people’s names were not on the list. They did take us but it was uncomfortable until they agreed to take us on the tour.

This was a very nice tour which showed us the highlights of Cadiz. The old city, the beautiful gardens, the beach and a stop at a street side cafe. Our guide Alla did a good job and was flexible to adjust to what people wanted to do and see during our walking segment of the tour. It was a nice small size tour. Well done!
