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!
It is the guide who makes any Trip exciting. Guide was fantastic and very good explanation and description of various places of tour.
Fabulous! The entire city was wonderful and the guide was quite knowledgeable.
despite some hiccups at the outset getting to the guide office with our driver who did not speak a word of English, the tour itself was great. The only issue we had was that the tour was approximately 30 people all Spanish speaking with myself, husband and two others requiring an English guide. The guide who was very knowledgable, spoke in both languages, however as we were the minority, more than a few times we had to remind her to translate in English and often felt the translation was given in minutes less than in Spanish. However, overall she was friendly, informative and it did not damper the most wonderful experience in Cordoba. Recommended!
The trip is definitely recommended. You get a chance to visit another beautiful place in less than a day!
Cordoba is a pretty pretty place! Beautiful narrow streets, windows decorated with flowers..picture perfect! Be it Seville or Cordoba, Andalusia is beautiful! Our guide was great too!
Very good service, attention and great people. We had a great experience!!!! Everyone was very patient with our kids, we got to see the best places of the city. Cordoba is beautiful. I really liked this tour and I will highly recommend it. I want to come back!!!!! Excellent experience and great time
One of the "must see" - mezquita of cordoba . Our guide ,Alicia, from Andalus tour took very good care of us. She made sure we understood he history of the place and its surroundings.
Our tour to Cordoba was really interesting. Our tour guide was Silvia. She was very knowledgeable, professional and personable. We really enjoyed the day! I must add that Andalsur Excursions as a company must improve it's game. They moved and did not inform us of the new location prior to our departure for Spain. They also did not return my e-mails that I sent to ehm prior to our trip. Silvia made the difference for us and the day itself was very good. Again Silvia was the saving factor, as she was terrific!
The driver was outstanding. The guide was very knowlegeable and friendly.
Our guide for this tour was incredible! Just to think that you are standing in a place that was built in the second century and continued with Muslim, Roman and Christian control truly reminded me that God loves and created ALL of us. Beautiful!
The tour of Cordoba was great - though our guide spoke too quickly! ALSO: the Carmona option never happened!!! We brought it to the attention of the guide, but nothing happened! We should be reimbursed for that part!!!
Wonderful, definitely recommend visiting the city and spending some time on your own as well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
The guide in Cordoba was exellent, but the optional Carmona tour isn't really worth it (in my case, the guide didn't have much to say...). I would definitly recommend the Cordoba tour!
Sylvia was the tour guide on the bus to Cordoba and she was very good. In Cordoba Anna led the walking tour and was excellent. Since she is rather short, it might be helpful for her to carry a flag or something so the tourists don't lose her. Again, it was hard to get a confirmation from Viator about the meeting place for the bus. I wrote 2-3 times and got no response. Fortunately, we arrived in Seville the day before the tour so I asked the hotel to call the tour company to confirm the pick-up time and place.
Cordoba Mosque is very much worth seeing. It is beautiful and unique, a mix between Catholics and Muslim. The local guide tour could be better if headsets and receivers are provided. It is not easy to hear every thing the guide says, especially when he switches between Spanish and English. You will not be able to take pictures and listen at the same time due to this fact. You will miss either the explanation or the pictures since the tour keeps on constantly moving.
Good tour, if you want to see both places the same day. The guides knew their history. Only recommendation is to do Carmona in the morning, since the town is a ghost town in the afternoon. The mesquita is amazing. Our guide Clara was very helpfull and kind.
Sylvia, our guide, was very good. Charming and very helpful. We were disappointed with the tour of the "famous" flowering patios as we saw very little of them. Our guide at the Mosque, David, was excellent and very well informed. He made the whole tour very interesting.
the tour was very nice but our tour guide was frustrating... he was giving wrong info about Islam at that time and giving missing info about Muslims as well, i left the group and i did the tour alone using the map
The tour is worth going to. The tour guide in Cordoba very informative and good. The accompanying guide could have been better. In future tour could infform us about weather and even provide umbrellas.
Pros: Cordoba mosque is an impressive structure. The guide and the drivers are attentive. Vehicles are clean and comfortable. Operators does its best to keep the time schedule. The local guides in Cordoba are knowledgeable. You also have free time to wander around the city and have a lunch in one of the tapas bars.
Cons: You spend most of the time in seeing similar structures that are available in seville with little time left for the main attraction, Cordoba Mosque. Our tour was a combination of English Spanish and French speaking people. Thus the information given in the bus were repeated 3 ties by the same guide and difficult to follow. The tour operator basically transports you to the location and leave you with the local guides in Cordoba for a 3 hour tour. Then you are left of for the full afternoon without any guidance until operator comes back to pick you up from the city.
The optional tour of Carmona is completely unnecessary and a waste of time and money!!!
