Cordoba was one of the highlights of our vacation. We're so happy that you made us feel welcome, were extremely knowledgeable about the cathedral and mosque and the coach and facilities were 5-star.
the tour was great, enough time to take good photos and excellent local guide
the old quarter is great to tour for the first time with a guide to find your way in and around
a worthwhile tour while on the costa del sol
Awesome tour! Very informative! Cathedral is beautiful! I learned a lot on this tour!
Fantastic tour guide both on jourrney and locally in Cordoba...our tour guide was Maria and she is brilliant..highly recommend!!
This was incredible to see the mosque, cathedral, syngouge and the rich history behind the culture. Nice city great guide at the site
Local guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the cathedral and its history. Very interesting.
The tour guides were excellent so enjoyed the ride in your comfortable buses.
We were the first passengers to be picked up at our hotel at 615 am. The tour bus was clean and modern. The tour guide, Paco was polite and knowledgeable. He conducted the tour in 3 languages: English, Spanish and German. He was flexible and permitted an unscheduled emergency bathroom stop. We arrived at Cordoba to visit the Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba which is on the UNESCO world heritage site. The Mosque cathedral was very impressive and we were in awe of the magnitude and scale of the building, the different phases and transformation of the mosque into a cathedral. Our local tour guide, Maria Jose was calm, and knowledgeable. She also led us on a walking tour of the Jewish quarter as well as the Arabic quarter. We had some free time to explore the area and to grab lunch. The one thing that caught us by surprise was the prevalence of smoking by tour guides and tourists alike. Being from the Pacific Northwest in the United States, we are not accustomed to second hand smoke. This negative exposure was most noticeable by my 11 year old son. Perhaps this negative experience will make an impression on him to deter him from smoking in the future. With all the other stops along the way to drop off the other tourists, we were the last ones to be dropped off, returning to our hotel after 8 pm.
we booked this trip before we left the uk for Spain. We were asked to confirm our booking 48 before. the problem we had when I rang the number given no one could speak English, I then sent an e mail to be informed that I would receive a reply within48 hours ( we would be in Spain so would not receive e mail reply in time) although at the time this seemed to be a problem when we rang on our arrival to our hotel everything was sorted.
Our pick up time was exact which came as a surprise as the coach had come from Marbella. Cordoba was an amazing city and I am surprised more information is not given about this amazing place. The coach was clean although I did find the seats slightly uncomfortable. We had a stop each way but as this is used by various bus companies you often find a queue for the ladies toilets.
Our coach guide was very helpful, he had to do his commentary in 5 different languages but managed this very well.
Required difficult telephone conversations for highway/busstop pick-up in darkness; 30 minutes late; bus had four language requirements which was very disturbing after unexpected 2-hour trip for all hotel pickups; three hour drive from Malaga with one needed rest-stop was ok; Cordova cathedral local guide in English was very good, but group was too large particularly strung out walking through old-town; tapas/lunch selection on own but enough ti,er free 2 hrs; return trip long and tiring; bus guide Anabelle became ill and her efforts were feeble; safe and late return to highway bus stop
My friend and I had a very good trip to Cordoba from Estepona, we were picked up on time. The guides were very nice and efficient, we had good value for money. Sandra
Our guide was very knowlegeable. We had enough time to wander around after our guided tour. The only complaint was that the restaurant that we stopped at had only two toilets.
Once again Viator had a great local contact & guide. We enjoyed the pick up since our hotel was a little out of town. Guide was knowledgeable and personable. Others (not in our tour) tagged along which was a disadvantage.
I suggest not going on the organized lunch and take in more of the city. I was able to visit the Alcazar gardens which unfortunately were not part of the tour.
