Plenty of time in the palace with an excellent guide. Had time to eat and explore the town. Only suggestion would be to have the guide on the bus gave some background while riding

The local guide at Cordoba was fantastic! She was great at sharing her knowledge and I really enjoyed the tour. However, lunch break was scheduled only past 2pm. It would be nice if we were informed earlier that lunch break would be so late so that we have a heavier breakfast.

And the time scheduled for lunch and DIY walk around was only sufficient for a quick lunch plus a quick walk to the bus. Luckily, the cafe we went were quick to serve our food. The lunch break was very short and stressful to be back on the bus.

We were picked up at Plaza Nueva at 8am and sat on the bus picking up other passengers for an hour. Should have given another pick-up location near our accommodation, a 5 min walk ... this would saved us 30 mins in the morning.

A very well organised tour of this beautiful and interesting place with an excellent English speaking guide and a comfortable coach journey. Plenty of time for lunch in Cordaba after the tour and an opportunity to buy coffee and snacks etc mid morning. Highly recommended.
