The Barcelona section of the tour was challenging as no information was provided regarding locations for the tour/pick up times etc and I had to contact their office to find this information out. The Madrid and southern Spain section was incredible and well worth it. Our guide Margarita was brilliant.
We took this tour on our 2nd day in Seville. We struggled to get in contact with the office for hotel pick up, and ended up having to walk to to office to meet the guide instead. We were nervous because no one was at the office to confirm we were at the right place, but our guide showed up exactly on time to walk us to the bus. Other groups on our tour also has issues with pick up. This seemed more of a problem from the office, but our guide kept a great attitude and was very positive. Although we requested an English tour, there was a group on our tour who spoke Spanish, and we had to listen to everything twice English and Spanish. One group on our tour booked the optional trip to Carmona, so we all got to go, even though we didn't pay extra. I wouldn't necessarily pay extra for this portion, but the views at the top were breath taking!
The trip was good on the whole except for a major screwup at Granada and the Alhambra..our tour of over 80 passengers were not allowed to see the main Palace and the LionCourtyard because the local tour did not have all our tickets. It is Julia travel in Madrid who had outsourced the local tour to local people who did not care how upset we all were.. the Allhambra Courtyard was to be highlight of our Spain tour !Hope you have better relations with the local tour guides for other tours.
Julia travel not the most professional toyr company. On the first day I was dropped off at the wrong hotel and took an hour to get through them on phone because it was a Sunday and I was told to catch a taxi to the right hotel. It was a terrible and frustrating start to the tour after being assured by the tour guide that she had made confirmation with the hotel prior to dropping me off at the hotel.
We had two guides through out the tour, one was good and easy to communicate with Margarita the other no so good Miguel had trouble communicating and understanding him. Sorry to say that this tour was poorly managed by the people at Julia travel.

Group was too large and having a French speaking tour guide for English speaking group did not make sense. I think, it would have been better to arrange my own transport through Spanish coach services ALSA to Cordoba and then buy my individual ticket to enter the Mosque/Church. I actually did this for Granada tour which worked out very well.

as I said in previous email regarding this that you sent me
You left us in Madrid for two days with no information or tour details
We wasted two days in Madrid because no one could tell us what was happening
I was disgusted with you Viator
Although we picked the wrong month to visit hot hot hot in summer, we enjoyed our trip to Cordoba and Carmona very much. The mini bus was really nice with cool air-conditioning. Our guide Guillermo did great introductions on the way from Seville to Cordoba. Very informative. Our local Cordoba guide took us to Christian Kings Alcazar, and then winding through little streets in the old city seeing many interesting sites. And, of course, the beautiful Mosque-Cathedral. After the tour, we had a little time to wander around by ourselves --- time for shopping and lunch.
We also signed up for Carmona tour. Guillermo did the guide himself. He was so informative and at one point I had to ask him what he majored in college. We did not only walk through an ancient city, we also had a tour through history and time. Guillermo spoke perfect English and did great recommendation for lunch etc. He was also very attentive to our big and small requests.
The tour was very well planned the only thing is that I would have like more time in Córdoba with a walking tour in the city after the visit to the Mosk and Cathedral
This was a fantastic tour of Cordoba. The tour group picks you up from your hotel and drop you back there. They take you around the key highlights of Cordoba, including the stunning Mezquita. We had two tour guides and they really impressed us. They both knew a lot of languages, explained the key parts of the sites to us and were friendly and funny. I highly recommend this company.

This was a great trip. Our tour guide, Joseph, was quite knowledgeable and highly entertaining. One thing to note: The standard hotels were very basic and the AC did not work in two of the rooms we stayed in. We were kicking ourselves for not doing the hotel upgrade.

everything was perfect except the lady who gave us the tour of Cordoa indoor said few things about other religion which we didn't appreciate and told her not to use those words. Other then that from pick up to drop everything went well. Thanks :
Doing what: Cordoba Day Trip from Seville
We enjoyed this tour very much. The tour guide was very punctual and had great knowledge about Seville and she explained about the city of Seville during our air-conditioned van-ride to Cordoba. Once there, we met with a local guide who was a professor in archeology and had a great deal of knowledge about history and he gave us perspective from a local. So, the experience was rather unique instead of experiencing as a tourist. Highly recommend this tour.
The tour was great. It had just enough sightseeing and enough free time to enjoy. The guide, Jaime, was fabulous.
This tour is worth it. Guides were very knowledgable
