Been to Seville twice now with Paridise Tours :- http://www.paradise-tour.com/

Takes around about 3 and a half to 4 hours to get there well worth the visit. Bought tickets last May from a Ticket shop in Albufeira Old Town which cost us 17 euros each.

pre booked trip from one of the local ticket shops is normally the best/cheapest way, its a very long day though normally leaving between 7 and 8am and returning at something like 10pm

The only way to do a day trip without a car is by an excursion. There are no trains across the border. The lines didn't meet up, as there is a wide river in the way and in any case the line on the Spanish side was closed many years ago. In March there are only three buses a day from Albufeira to Seville, one of which leaves at a quarter to one in the morning. The winter timetable would allow you 3hrs 15 minutes in Seville, unless you took the night bus to Seville and the midnight bus back to Albufeira. The last daytime departure from Seville in winter is at 1615. The bus journey is over 4 hours, the direct excursion coaches take around 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on the number of pick-ups.

Cost in November was €15, although some people had paid €29 so definitely shop around for the best price. We were picked up at 7am from Brisa Sol and arrived back at 7.15pm, it is a long day but Seville is a lovely city to visit. There is a half hour toilet/break stop either way, I think the general census of opinion was the break half an hour outside Seville on the return journey was probably not needed and people would have preferred to have been back in resort earlier. Coach was comfortable, guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

I would suggest walking back to the Plaza De Espana later in the day (this is the first stop on the tour before the coach is parked up). The tour allowed 10minutes and this was nowhere near enough. It seems a long walk from the Cathedral area back there when you are on the coach but in truth it is about 20mins and you have far less people around later in the day.

Well worth doing the trip especially for €15. The ticket shop near the bus turnaround in the Old Town was where we booked, she was grouchy but it was the best price around.

Hi as long as you know that in a bid to avoid toll rolls on the way back on 3rd jan it took nearly 5 hours it was excutiatingly long espcially as the bus stopped 25 mins from seville then we has to wait all those hours to get a drink / go to toilet. That was paradise tours. Seville was fantastic though

Seville in a day from Albufeira is a LONG day and Seville is at its best in the late evening, I would consider doing an overnight if the option exists.
