We toured the Alcazar, a little bit of the surrounding neighborhood and the fantastic Mezquita. Good, thoughtful commentary. Good value.

We started with a small English speaking group at the Alcazar which afforded us lots of opportunities to interact with our guide, Christina. However, at the Mosque-Cathedral our numbers swelled to over 25. Even with the larger crowd, Christina managed to keep everything in order, and we obtained a wealth of knowledge about not only the building but also about the history of Spain.

This tour was wonderful, not to be missed. The guide was Raphael and he was very passionate about the history, it was fantastic. Highly recommend it. If you have been to a Hammam, I would not add the Arabian baths if you want an authentic experience. Even though I enjoyed the baths it was nothing like an Hammam.

On arrival at meeting point we were split into different language groups which I was very impressed with. Our guide Paqui was absolutely FANTASTIC. She was immensely knowledgeable and very funny, which made our 4-hour tour even more enjoyable. I felt she spent the right amount of time at each point of interest. We had a quick coffee and a couple of toilet breaks too. Every part of the tour was a highlight for us but having the Mezquita at the end was fantastic. This is my second Viator tour and I do intend to use them again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Outstanding tour and tour guide! Paci was our guide. She had the knowledge and was able to share it so we all learned and enjoyed the tour. She was able to answer any questions and inject humor at appropriate times. Thank you Viator! Another great tour!

I don't remember the guides name but he wasn't into much on the history of cordoba. The tour ended on a rooftop and wasn't that great! Just so you know it's only one rooftop. The rest are just street level

Traveling from the US, there were a few selling points-
The timing...10:30am worked out perfectly
Next, the location...the Christian Alcazar...wow
Seamless meet up with gp and guide at the entrance of the Alcazar
Great instruction/guide in English. Very patient and funny.
As if the Alcazar wasn't enough, we then toured the Jewish quarters next after a short water and ice-cream break
Then to top it all, we toured the Mesquita-with seamless entry tickets and radio mics
Amazing!
