Laissez-vous séduire par le charme andalou de Cordoue à l'occasion d'une excursion d'une journée au départ de Malaga. Cette ancienne cité fascinante fut la capitale de l'Espagne mauresque pendant trois siècles, et aurait été la plus grande ville d'Europe à l'époque de la domination islamique. Visitez la magnifique Grande mosquée de Cordoue, qui conserve son étonnante architecture islamique.
Nous avions rendez vous et le bus est passé sans nous prendre !! heureusement nous avons pu faire l'excursion le lendemain
l'accompagnatrice dans le bus était très faitgante, elle parlait sans cesse aussi bien à l'aller qu'au retour, répétait 3/4 fois la même chose et ensuite parlait au téléphone, au chauffeur du bus, bref un voyage très désagréable
la personne sur place était un peu plus calme mais avait du mal à répondre a des questions pertinantes
Although Cordoba is a great place to visit as a tourist, the tour operator Julia Travels does a horrible job. They just basically arrange for the bus to take you to Cordoba where a completely different tour operator gives you the tour, so there is always a bit of confusion during the hand off. Our bus and our tour in the Mosque was in four languages. As you can imagine we wasted a lot of time waiting for the guide to speak in four languages. Why can't they just divide the tours by language? Our bus tour guide, Paco, just went through the motions. My recommendation: Definitely go to Cordoba, but with a different tour company.
On a positive note, the mosque was an amazing architectural masterpiece, and I'm happy I was able to see it. Viator contracted with a company called Julia Tours. We were packed into a full coach with Spanish, German, Italian, and French speakers. The little information we got on the way to Cordoba had to be repeated in all 5 languages, so there was not much. After an absurdly long bathroom/coffee break at a rest area, we drove to the city. Although there were probably only 10 English speakers on our bus, Julia tours combined us with several other busses so we had at least 40 people in our group with one tour guide. We did have earphones. Because there were so many other busses in town, the tours went through the mosque one right after the other in a maze-like coordinated pattern. It was nearly impossible to follow our guide through the crowd, which was as thick as a rock concert. Several people in our group started to panic and had to leave the building. We were led through the city after the mosque visit, which was also somewhat stressful because of our way-too-large group.
I would recommend Cordoba, but not with this tour!
We would like to thank your tour leader Rafael regret we missed his surname for a beautiful tour of the astonishing architecture of the mosque and the city. It was a great experience and at the same time it was very educational since we were taken around the old Jewish quarters. For those who love history and architecture, Cordoba is the city not to miss. Unfortunately time was not in our favour, as we would have loved to stay there for a few days to explore further. Well done and thank you Rafael.
The bus trip itself involved 40 , then a stop, followed by 1.5 hours. The bus-guide was very helpful in giving ideas for food and restaurants. The scenery along the way is interesting. The guided tour through the Mosque/church is truly excellent, much better than just wandering on one's own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The pace was steady but comfortable, with accommodations for a bathroom break. After that wonderful tour, the guide then led us through the very narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarter as well as the old city itself. Again, I would not want to try this on my own as it is very confusing. Quite delightful. We had time for a tasty lunch in the old city before boarding the bus for the return trip. Don't miss the ancient Roman bridge. On the whole, an excellent tour, well managed and well worth the money.
If you are pressed for time and want to see the Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba in an organised guided tour from Málaga, this might be for you. Our guide in Cordoba (different from the Coach trip guide) was excellent and very engaging. But we needed more free time in Cordoba.
