What You Can Expect
Next visit of the old Jewish Quarter, going back to the time of the Romans and Goths, you will notice many important monuments reminding you of the most important sons of Cordoba: Roman philosopher Seneca, Arabian philosopher Averroes and Jewish philosopher Maimonides. Here you can also find one of the few synagogues existing today in Spain, built in 1315.
Transport comfortable and start place easy to find. Guide excellent and well-organised. Very knowledgeable. Sufficient free time before return.
this was great! Private car transfer from Granada hotel to Cordoba where we joined a tour for 3 hours (very good and informative) then free time for lunch and to soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful place before returning to Granada. Got back about 6.30 pm.
It was a very good trip. The bus was alright, but what I really enjoyed was the Granada guide. After a deceiving experience with the Alhambra guide, who by the way spoke no acceptable English and offered scarce information, the Granada guide was talking a nice English. The Granada tour was very good, we saw the most important objectives, as I made a reserach before the trip. The explanations were complete, didactic, unforgettable. Thank you and congratulation!
The ride from Granada to Cordoba is about 2 hours long. The bus was comfortable and the driver very nice. We had expected that there would be a guide on the bus who would explain the different parts of Spain that you dirive through. The local tour guide in Cordoba was okay but not great. She had basic knowleged of the monuments that we visited but was not very engaged with the group. She seemed a bit rushed and did not provide much information outside of the very basics.
The pick up was an hour late to collect us, so I thought they had forgot. The tour guide was a nice lady but she had two groups at the same time. One speaking only Spanish , the other only English, so she would spend a long time explaining to the Spanish group while we waited for her then to repeat everything in English. That meant the tour was doubly long and we had little free time to wander around the lovely town before we had to meet the driver to go back to Granada. The mosque itself was well worth the journey, it is beautiful, again we didn't see all of it because of the mixed group. For the price we paid we should have had two seperate tour guides. That really spoiled our trip.
I've already reviewed this trip as extremely disappointing and not good value for money.
