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.

A great experience that combines both sport and sightseeing. The activity is energy demanding but does not require an prior experience. The basic instructions are provided.

Everything went very smoothly. The personnel were very helpful. The location of the office is difficult to locate but the price was great.

incredible view the city through the river. You go at your own pace and its very peaceful. I highly recommend this on a nice day.

Great experience and perfect way to enjoy the river!
