To travel a little further afield it’s well worth taking one of the hop-on, hop-off bus tours which begin their itinerary on the side of the river, opposite the bullring. There are 12 stops in total and you can hop-on and off as many times as you like. Buses depart from each stop every 20 to 30 minutes and the duration of the route is about 75 minutes. Once you’ve bought your ticket it is valid for 24 hours so you’re under no time pressure to rush around the sights.
If you’re looking for something a little more special you can pre-book Seville private city tours with official, English-speaking tour guides who offer tours of the main attractions, wine and tapas tours and walking tours culminating in a flamenco show.
