Excellent tour. Our guide, Silvia, was great. The Cathedral-mosque presents an incredible mixture of Christian/muslim civilization. The Calleja de las Flores, a small, flower-lined street is also worthy of a look.

This was a very educational tour.Love walking thru the corridor and shopping.It was absolutely beautiful to see and hear the history of Córdoba. The Mosque was something to definitely see while in Spain. We purchased the Carmona tour but this was cancelled. Still a great time.

Excellent tour. The guide in Cordoba was extremely knowledgable. Appreciated the free time to wonder the streets, have lunch, cross the bridge, visit the Spanish Inquisition Museum etc. Glad we didn't take up the optional tour but instead had a quiet drink and a walk around the streets on our own. Those who did that bit of the trip said they wished they'd done as we did so obviously didn't miss anything much.

Apart from a small hiccup in communicating that the optional tour of Carmona wasn't going ahead the actual tour of Córdoba was wonderful. The guide who had to provide the commentary in English and Spanish was amazing. She gave an excellent historical context throughout and ensured that the English speakers who were the smaller group received as much input as the others. Due to not doing the optional tour we travelled to and from Córdoba by train which proved to be a good opportunity to see the countryside from a different perspective. Also pleased to report that after some communication we have been reimbursed for the missed section of the tour.

Our bus was expertly driven by Israel and the on-bus tour guide Carmen gave a lively and engaging history of the Andalusian countryside on our way to Córdoba. The only complaint we had was the a/c could not keep up the external heat and the BTU's pumped out by 14 or so people inside the bus. Still, we survived and it was utterly worth it. The whole tour was very well organized and our Spanish/English speaking guide at the compound sadly, I forgot her name, but it was for a tour that began on the morning of July 21 was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, animated, and gave intelligent and thorough information every step of the way. Being in the Great Mosque was a long-term goal of mine as an art history professor, and I was thrilled with the shape and length of the tour. It made the sweltering heat insignificant. I was able to assess the space and truly appreciate the rich history of the entire area we visited, including the castillo and the sumptuous gardens.

We made a brief stop at Carmona, which I think all would have been grateful to skip given the heat, but the Andalusur professionals delivered on the package they sold us. I'm glad we stopped even if were wiped out by then.

The best thing about the tour was being able to wander the Great Mosque after the guide finished her remarks. She was awesome, and kept it lively in two languages. My bucket list is shorter now, and that is a good thing. I have already recommended this tour to friends, without hesitation.
