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.
We Enjoyed it .it was very Good
It was Very Good We as Family Enjoyed it
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.
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.
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.
