The down side to my trip was the weather. I was told that Cordoba gets about 28 days of rain a year and I got two the two days I was there. The sky absolutely opened and it poured all through the tour. Despite that the guide was very friendly and informative. As an umbrella was the last thing I thought of bringing to a holiday in Spain, she frequently shared hers with me. I found Cordoba an amazing city and would like to return again to see more. I really enjoyed listening to your guide's comments on all we saw. I found the mosque/cathedral amazing. A friend of mine who is Muslim told me that when he visited it he found it a bit ridiculous. It was as if someone had stuck an alter, choir and side chapels in a mosque. I had to agree with him.Despite many centuries as a Cathedral I was more inclined to face Mecca to pray than cross myself.
We so enjoyed the humor and the knowledge of Carlota, she was obvious very proud of her city and it gave us a little peek into the people who live there. She was most kind and considerate, made sure we all were together, even took us to the Taxi stand at the end. It was a morning well spent! Tom and Eunice Goodrich
A very interesting visit with a friendly and knowledgeable guide.
this tour was well conducted and professional. The guide informative, knowlegable and personable.Quite sufficient for the sights available, and very important, the guide was in control of her group. I wld recommend this tour and Company
Tour guide very good and knowledgeable, but beware they group multi-lingual groups which slows the tour. The tour also takes in the Jewish quarter which was not explained at the time and was a waste of an hour
Too many people. The tour with a single guide was undertaken in both English and Spanish. Nowhere was this advertised. We were standing around waiting for the translation. If I had known this I would not have taken this tour. At 1 point joined by a French group. Now 3 languages. Slow and dull.
Really lovely walking tour. Not too arduous a comfortable leisurely stroll with a fun English speaking knowledgeable guide.
This was an amazing tour. We were absolutely delighted with our guide. She was very professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Cordoba.
We are ashamed to say that we could not remember the name of our guide but she was fantastic. So well informed and welcoming. She was giving information in two languages and so that we didn't have to wait around, sent us off to look at things while she gave a talk to the other group in their language which was brilliant. She was humourous and intelligent and we were lucky to have her do the walk with us. The instructions for the meeting place were confusing and we waited at the wrong place because we were given an address which wasn't correct. But the walk was so good that we got over that quickly enough. Would recommend this.
Our guide, Pacqui (s.p.) was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and spoke clearly and audibly. We covered all major sites thoroughly. Our only issue with the tour is that it started late (20+ minutes) and our group grew from 4 to 20 when the late arrivers showed up. We added additional non-English speakers later in the tour.
Never took this formal tour as I mistakenly booked for the wrong date. However we took a walking tour of Cordoba on our own in two days and saw and visited much of what would have been present on the tour. Cordoba is an excellent city to spend a day or two.
The meeting point indicated in my voucher was WRONG! The voucher directed me to go to the Alcazar Gardens main entrance, at Alcazar Avenue in Cordoba. I went there and found a locked and chained gate, and no one from the tour operator. After waiting for about 20 minutes, and as the tour hour approached, I inquired from a bus driver who told me that probably I should go to the Alcazar main entrance (NOT the Alcazar GARDENS main entrance), located on another street (NOT in Alcazar Ave. as indicated in the voucher). I walked about 600 meters, turned two corners, and sure enough, the meeting place was where the bus driver suggested. The tour itself was OK but not great. I would probably rate it 3 stars if I had been given the correct meeting point.
Started out Ok, then 2 more groups were added to ours. Our guide had to explain each featured stop in 3 languages. Everyone was very bored!! It took way longer than expected.This should be called a standing tour not a walking tour. Don't waste your money. Also had to wait about 20 min. to get started!
We enjoyed this tour. The guide was entertaining and informative. However the tour was conducted in 2 languages which resulted in lots of standing around and a tour that was substantially longer than was necessary leading to some boredom during the tour.
