The port city of Cadiz is located in Southernmost continental Spain and it makes a very convenient departure point for fabulous shore excursions to Seville, Jerez and the white villages of Andalusia, amongst others.
Shore excursions from Cadiz, Spain are easy, enjoyable and fun. This is because Cadiz cruise port is in a region of Spain with more than 330 days of sunshine a year, famous for its beauty, excellent food and wine and joyous outlook on life!
Most travellers docking in Cadiz port instantly think of taking a shore excursion to Seville, which makes a delightful day trip. However, we have many more options for Cadiz shore excursions. Let’s explore them all!
• Cadiz Spain shore excursion to Seville: a classic!
Seville is only 120km away from Cadiz cruise port (1h20min drive one-way) so it makes an easy Cadiz shore excursion.
With three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a very charming old section (the quarter of Santa Cruz), Seville is one of the prettiest cities in Spain. Besides it has one of the most vibrant tapas scenes in the country and a truly unique landmark dating from the 1920s, filled with gorgeous Southern Spanish ceramics and tiles: Plaza de España.
Our private shore excursion from Cadiz to Seville will allow you to enjoy all these wonders with your own personal local host (a fully licensed, personable, kind, flexible and interactive guide). This excursion also includes private transportation in a modern and comfortable Mercedes vehicle with a dedicated driver, all entrance tickets and lunch.
Prices start at 182 Euros per person for a private group of 8 people.
• Shore excursion to Jerez: Sherry and food heaven!
Food and wine lovers arriving on a cruise to the port of Cadiz are in for a treat with a shore excursion to the city of Jerez.
This Southern Spanish hidden gem is only 35km (30 min drive one-way) away from Cadiz cruise terminal. So it makes a perfect shore excursion filled with gourmet discoveries and not too much driving.
Jerez de la Frontera, or simply Jerez, is the capital of Sherry Wine. If learning about the making, ageing and enjoyment of Sherry with a certified Sherry Educator in hand-picked artisanal wineries and mastering the local art of pairing food and sherry in selected local bars sound good to you, we have a winner of a Cadiz shore excursion for you!
Our private shore excursion from Cadiz to Jerez is a real immersion into the wines and gastronomy of Southern Spain. It includes the services of your own personal certified Sherry Educator, private transportation in a modern and comfortable Mercedes vehicle with a dedicated driver, all winery visits and tastings and lunch.

• The white villages: shore excursion from Cadiz
The iconic whitewashed hilltop towns of Southern Spain are not far at all from the cruise port of Cadiz. Therefore, they can be combined to make a most enjoyable and varied shore excursion.
These charming and picturesque Southern Spanish villages feature a fascinating combination of grand historical buildings and houses of traditional architecture. They are also filled with quaint corners and offer extraordinary views of the nature that surrounds them. Besides, these whitewashed towns are ideal spots to get in contact with local arts and crafts and to taste typical Southern Spanish recipes.
We have two suggested Cadiz shore excursions to the white villages: the first one includes Arcos de la Frontera, Medina – Sidonia and Vejer de la Frontera and it is ideal for those cruise passengers willing to explore three very monumental villages with a rich and colourful history in one day. The second includes Arcos de la Frontera, Grazalema and Zahara de la Sierra and it combines a bit of history and architecture with the spectacular scenery and rustic charm that the natural park of Grazalema has to offer.
Both shore excursions from Cadiz to the white villages are completely private, just for you and your travel party. They both are aimed to offering an immersion into the history, landscapes, customs and traditional architecture of rural Andalusia. They include the services of your own personal local host, private transportation in a modern and comfortable Mercedes vehicle with a dedicated driver, all entrance tickets, admissions and lunch.
Prices start at 152 Euros per person for a private group of 8 people.
• Cadiz city tour, starting from the cruise port
A guided walking tour of the city of Cadiz itself can be a real surprise for passengers arriving in town on a cruise ship. Cadiz is a very compact city and its port is right in the heart of the old section, so a discovery journey of the city on foot is doable, convenient and very enjoyable!
There are at least two reasons why we believe Cadiz is a gem of a city to visit. First of all it was founded 3000 years ago by Phoenicians and learning about this culture in one of its most prosperous colonies can be a fascinating journey back in time. Second, Cadiz is the only coastal town in Spain that held the monopoly of all trade with the New World. This turned the city into a bourgeois, liberal and cosmopolitan colonial hub in Spain.
Learning about this period while exploring the quarters where the wealthy merchants lived will allow you to experience the refinement, elegance and openness of a unique period in Spanish history.
Cadiz is also popular amongst Spanish natives for its joyous and relaxed lifestyle and for its fabulous gastronomy. So we have designed a private walking tour for cruise passengers focusing on its most glorious periods and on its food and wine too.
The tour includes your own personal local expert, all entrance tickets, tastings of selected local foods and wines and lunch.
Prices start at 100 Euros per person for a private group of 8 people.
