What You Can Expect
With your skip-the-line ticket, continue to the Christian Kings Alcazar in the Jewish Quarter, with its narrow streets lined with flowers and white-washed houses. Visit Cordoba Synagogue; see the Alcazar fortress of King Don Pedro, built by the Moors in the 14th century; and walk along the lovely Calle de las Flores, which still upholds Cordoba’s traditional way of life from long ago.
Then, your guide will bring you to the city center, where you’ll have free time to shop and enjoy a Spanish meal (own expense). On the way back to your hotel, stop at a nice break area to enjoy some coffee and other refreshments (own expense).
Optional Carmona Tour:
You have the option to take a walking tour of the beautiful city of Carmona, located strategically on a hill offering breathtaking panoramic views. Follow your guide through charming streets to several important monuments, like the convent of La Madre de Dios and Las Descalzas. End your tour by catching gorgeous views of the city.
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.
There can never be enough time for seeing a historical monument like this. The guide did a marvellous job in taking us through different periods of history inside the mosque. Carmona can be totally avoided and that would give the visitors more time to browse through the town.
A must have visit when you travel to Andalusia. Excellent mezquita, walk around Jewish quater, visit the christian palace. The Architecture in Cordoba mezquita is really beautiful and breath taking. Our tour leader is excellent too, Alicia and the driver Manuel?. Visit to Carmona is recommended, a small, unique roman city. The tour agent is professional, value for money. Excellent!
