5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

We left promptly at Plaza de Espana and our tour guide Josef shared a lot of information about the places we visited. Cordoba is lovely and I would love to go back for an overnight stay there. Cristobal is very knowledgeable. He reminded me of professors who are very passionate about their jobs and who share a lot of information in a short span of time.
By the time we reached Seville it was late afternoon, but most of us in the group opted to watch the flamenco. We enjoyed it very much. The Plaza de Espana, the Alcazar and the Cathedral were my favorites.

This was an amazing experience! The church in Cordoba is a must-see. The only thing I wish this tour would have included is a tour of the Cathedral in Seville, but other than that, it was amazing.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2013

The guides were excellent, the bus trip was beautiful and the tour of Cordoba and the Mosque and Jewish quarter were excellent. I am sorry I can't say the same for Seville. That part of the tour was a disappointment. I also felt I should have been informed ahead of time that I was the only one signed up for the two day tour and would be put in with a group doing a four day tour.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2010

Overall, we enjoyed aspects of the tour but there were several negatives. Several tour groups were combined, so the itinerary was confusing. We were instructed to meet at the travel agency. When we arrived they were not familiar with our tour plans. After several phone calls they instructed us to catch a taxi at our expense to a hotel, to meet the rest of the group. We almost missed the bus.

Once on the bus I thought we were on the wrong tour because our guide kept talking about Barcelona, and other places not on our itinerary. It turned out that we were the only ones on the two day tour to Cordoba and Seville. Next our tour guide proceeded to sell tour packages to us. I mistakenly thought that the tours were included in the package. Our guide explained that only the panoramic tour, the view from the bus was included. You had to pay extra for guided tours to the various sights. At 36 euros per person this was no small price for a family of four.

The guided tours were good, but expensive. The hotel 3 star was poor quality with a gaping hole in the wall next to our room and yellow stains on the pillows. The food was mediocre and drinks i.e. water cost extra. If I had to do it again, I would travel by AVE train, really awesome both ways and see the cities on my own.

The itinerary is OK, but AVE train is a lot faster getting to Cordoba Seville. Lunch was not included as described in the itinerary and explanations in Spanish seems to be a lot longer than in English.

There were several major flaws to this trip. First, it seemed to be a big waste of time to take a tour bus to Cordoba for 5 hours when we could have just taken the AVE train and gotten there in 45 minutes. There weren't really any sites on the way to Cordoba. Second, the itinerary states you will have lunch provided in Cordoba. Lunch was not provided, we had to pay for it and instead of eating in Cordoba at a restaurant we ate at a truck stop on the way to Cordoba. Third, the dinner that was included was at the hotel we stayed at. We booked the three star hotel assuming everyone would meet up for dinner at an interesting local place. Instead we were just dropped off at the hotel and told that dinner was in the hotel lobby by ourselves. Finally, the tour in Seville did not go into most of the sites. I know that was stated on the website but there seemed to be no reason why the tour guide shouldn't have taken us into the sites. Overall, this tour could easily have been done on your own for around the same price and without a 5 hour bus ride.
