This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Spain. The timing of the tour and the free time in the city of Granada perfect. Our on site guide Oscar was wonderful. He had an easy going personality, paced the tour as such to allow time for both questions and photos and was very knowledgeable about the fascinating history of the Alhambra. I can't imagine doing a site of this magnitude and historical breath with only an audio-guide. You would probably leave with more questions than answers.
Cordoba was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip through Spain and our Viator tour enabled us to see its highlights in one day. The tour began with our on time pick up in Seville and within 90 minutes, including one rest stop on the way ( which we thought was unnecessary ) we arrived in Cordoba. And yes there was no commentary on the way but with an early morning pick up most folks we snoozing.
Our 1st visit was to the Alcazar, which in our opinion, is not as impressive as it's counterpart in Seville so we found it dull and uninteresting. From there we took a walk through the Jewish Quarter and the Street of Flowers ( not to be missed) and then the highlight of the tour - the Mesquita. Based on previous comments Viator seems to have listen to its clients complaints. Our guide Carmen was knowledgeable, thoughtful and only gave the tour in English. And while we were initially put off by the size of the tour - we picked up 10 folks in Cordoba in addition to the 20-24 we arrived on the bus with - Carmen did an outstanding job of herding us through the sites. So bottom line - take the Viator if you don't want the hassle of driving/parking yourself and you do want a well paced, informative tour of a most beautiful mosque/cathedral.
We had planned to visit Croatia for a wek but did not want to miss the opportunity to visit Montenegro as well. The private tour was our answer and it exceeded our expectations. And all 5 of us credit our driver/guide Filip
with making this trip a spectacular day. The scenic drive to Kotor via Persat was lovely as was our first stop in Persat. We had ample time to tour Kotor and had a lovely lunch in Budva. And of course we all drooled from a far the resort at St. Stephen's!! But what pulled this all together was Filip's knowledge of history and culture, which he freely shared,that brought this trip to life! Not only is he well versed in English but most accomadating to our wishes. And the next best part of the private tour after Filip is how easily we crossed the border as we did not have to use the main crossing that backlogs with all the tour buses. Don't worry about it being to long a day as Filip's timing of driving, walking or sitting in a square to people watch is impeccable. Highly recommend this tour and be sure to request Filip if he is available
