Angel was VERY difficult to understand...lacked Eng. vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Missed half of his talk because it sounded like Spanish. Fortunately, Pacqui was our guide inside LA Mezquita and she was wonderful. Your guide can make or break the tour.
A surprising destination - loved it! Great scenery and wonderful tour guide.
Definitely worth trip. Cordoba is a great town and far more containable than Granada. Your guide was very good and explained all the standard sites of Alcazar, Jewish town and Mesquita very well. I would advise all to take this tour but as we did not visit Granada cannot compare both.

This was a great tour to learn about the three cultures - Moslem, Jewish and Catholic - and medieval history in a brief time. A long day and on the feet throughout, to be sure, but it was informative and enjoyable. Wish there was a break for lunch between the garden tour and the cathedral tour.
Loved this trip. The guide was very good - informative and interesting. All of the sites visited in Cordoba were great but the Mesquite was sensational. It was definitely my favourite monument of the trip to Spain, Marrakech, Canary Islands, Scotland and Ireland, if not my favourite of all time.
Good trip . Long journey to Cordoba but not much can be done about that.
We enjoyed visiting Cordoba and Pacqui was an excellent guide. On the bus ride to and from Sevilla, there was no commentary which surprised me. I had hoped to hear some about what were could expect to see on the tour and also to hear about the areas we were driving past. For instance, there were miles of olive trees and solar panels and so much could have been explained about them. I missed having someone on the bus who could tell us about what were were passing as we drove to Cordoba.
Once in Cordoba, Pacqui was an excellent guide and we enjoyed her tour. I think it would be helpful to let those going on the tours know whether tipping is expected. We gave Pacqui a tip for the wonderful tour she gave us but we noticed most of those on the tour did not. There should be some kind of information about tipping and appropriate amounts to give our guides on the tours.
Local guide was very good. Had us on tour for over 3 hrs. Thought the visit to the Jewish quarter, while interesting, was made up of long waiting in line for many tour groups and could have been skipped in the crowded back streets. Let people do by themselves if they wanted. Mosque/cathedral was tops. Good timing of the trip.
This tour was a good one, namely when compared to typical European tours that are often lacking truly knowledgeable and interested guides. Our guide was very knowledgeable, kept us informed on where we were, what we were looking at, and knew so much historical facts that the tour was interesting throughout. Though it was a good tour, it is overpriced. For the price, I would expect the tour guide to be on the way to the city and back, providing information along both routes. We were simply picked up and driven to meet the guide in Cordoba, then once complete, say goodbye and drive back. The tour company is charging a hefty rate for bus transportation, and truly a half day tour in Cordoba. I think if I knew I could join the same tour and same guide, I would much prefer to pay a lower price, drive there with my rental, and do the tour, then have all the time I want to spend in town once the tour is over.
Love the local guide - her explanation is captivating and interesting.
The tour was great - in particular the tour leader in Cordoba was among the best I have ever had
This day trip was after we visited granada the day before. it was not a long trip from Seville and our bus was on time. Small group of people and it was good. But in Cordoba we were waiting for more people from different tours and all together it took some time. The guide was good and we learned a lot of new.
The guide was very knowledgeable and spoke many languages, which actually turned against us when, during the tour, an additional group (french-speaking) was attached to our english-speaking group. After she finished the english presentation, we had to wait for her to do it all over again in french. No big deal but maybe a little better organizing would help.
Cordoba is so beautiful and a must see in Spain. We had a very good guide and also very funny.
Fantastic tour! Wish we had more time to wander around and do our own thing and do some shopping. Understandably there is just so much to see, and we still had to drive back to Seville, so the time was actually quite reasonable. I just loved it so much, that I wish I could have stayed longer. Tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The mosque-cathedral was absolutely spectacular.
Beautiful trip despite the rainy weather. I would like to have more time exploring the city though.
Excellent guide, and a very interesting day. We would have liked a little more time to explore on our own at the end of the afternoon.
Very well organised and directed tour. The guide was exceptional, informative and covered the major themes within limited time.
It was good but a little too hectic and the heat did not help!
The tour went just fine. Our guide was professional and knowledgeable. My beef lies in the fact that my email was blocked because gmail suspected suspicious activities because I was hopping from place to place. My confirmation slip, which I printed, did not have any information on meeting place or time so I contacted viator from my friend's email giving instructions to answer my question regarding the above on her email address or to call the hotel. I sent this request three times with no success. When we got to our hotel, they did not have any message from Viator. My friend really wanted to go to Cordoba and asked the hotel clerk to book us a tour. She asked that we wait a little longer as you might call. Nevertheless we asked her to ask about reservations with that Travel agency. It was exactly the same price as I had already paid for the viator tour. So, on a hunch I asked her to ask that agency to see if they had my name and luckily they had. So we got to know the time and place. This lack of response was not good.
Excellent guide Paqui in Cordoba, giving many intesresting explanations, very clear, both in english, spanish and even french. Very intense tour between the alcazar, the juderia ad the cathedral. The length of the walking tour (4 hours) without any stop or pause is a little bit surprising. Another strange thing was for the fact to discover in the morning, 2 minutes after going on the bus, that there was no guide on the bus. So we have the one hour and a half drive from Seville to Cordoba done without any comments or music or movie on the TV. It was the first time I had such a tour without any thing proposed during the drive.
