Beware, not a real tour
Ethan_M, Jan 2023
Our tour never happened. We had a tour in cordoba on epiphany. Since this is a national holiday in Spain, we asked ahead of time (weeks ahead) if our tour would still happen. Our contact politely informed us that the tour would be fine and on time, and if this were to change they would inform us. On the day we arrived five minutes early and began looking for the tour guide and told them that we were there. Several minutes after the time of the tour, and after texting the contact number multiple times, we called and the person on the line rudely told us that we were late, and also that it was a national holiday so there was no tour. Since we were not late, and also we had asked for notice well in advance for this kind of thing we feel, very justifiably, annoyed and weren’t able to visit the beautiful church/mosque since our tickets were tied to the tour.
Brilliant guided tour.

Jose was superbly well informed and captivated the visitors with his knowledge and stories. The mosque and cathedral are magnificent buildings brought to life by this excellent guide.
Great guide good pace...
Ashok_K, Oct 2022
Great guide good pace even though the place was crowded she directed the group very well. Gave good narrative and history easy to understand
Make sure the tour is in the language of your choice
Ira_L, Apr 2022
I purchased the tour in English. When I arrived the guide told me it was in Spanish only. As I was there & speak some Spanish we went along. However the guide spoke in such rapid Spanish that we could not understand her. We returned the listening devices & left - disappointed.
Disappointing audio
Lisa_B, Mar 2022
The audio equipment for the tour was poor. It was difficult to hear the guide due to feedback (breathing sounds) on the equipment. One guest asked continuous questions which interrupted the flow of the commentary, particularly as the audio transmitted only the guides answers, not the questions being asked. The tour became a private conversation between one or two guests and the guide. The guide was clearly very knowledgeable, it was very disappointing to understand so little of the commentary. We tried to leave the tour and enjoy the mosque alone however this isn’t permitted so we had to remain with the group. If you can afford it book a private tour.
Great Tour on English
Luksa, Oct 2020
Great tour that shows you more about the future of the cordoba mosque. The guide was fun and exciting. Thank you Angela.
Great historical walk through
keithpace, Feb 2020
Angela was very good on the history and made the tour bring to life what we saw. Amazing place made so much better with a personal tour.

Excellent tour
IOURI_B, Dec 2019
This is an Excellent Tour! You are involved from the first moment. The guide is so good that time runs very quickly: quicker than you wish... The gude shows up only 5-10 minutes before the start time: so don't get anxious. And as far as I remeber we got those small walkie-talkie devices helping us to hear the guide because of the other visitors. This tour is very attractive espacially if you arrive after 1pm (as we did by train): you don't waste your afternoon.
Walking Tour of the Mesquita/Catedral
Jack_S, Oct 2019
While our guide was knowledgeable and covered the area well, she needs to understand that humor does not translate well and as she herself said, she talks too much.
Fascinating building
Andrew S, Oct 2019
Incredible building, not to be missed. The cathedral within the mosque was unexpected The guide was knowledgeable, but spoke too quickly, and the meeting point was unclear.

Booked an English Tour and got a Spanish Tour
Susan_D, Sep 2019
The Mosque is a fabulous place and the tour guide very pleasant but had booked an English tour and it was changed to a Spanish tour - they offered a tour the following week but we were only in Cordoba for 2 days so we went on the tour anyway but it was spoilt for us as we could not understand the majority of the information the tour guide was saying
Outstanding Guide
Mary A, Aug 2019
Not only was our guide incredibly informative and interesting, but she was very sensitive to and respectful of the mixed religious ideologies within our group.
Good but you can buy much cheaper visits in town
sylvia20, Jul 2019
The guide was really good. She knew a lot. The group was small and everything ran smooth but you can buy the same tour in town for almost half the price
Cordova Mosque
Angel U, Jul 2019
This was the best guided tour we gave ever been. Our guide Irene was excellent. This was worth every cent.
Amazing tour
Tori S, Jul 2018
This mosque is one of the best things I’ve seen in Spain. If you are near Córdoba you have to see it! Our tour was pretty large but you get headphones and our tour guide was great. She was extremely enthusiastic and you could tell she loved her job! Definitely recommend this tour.
Confusing start
Adrienne P, Jul 2018
The tour was fine but Viator our sources this tour. They called the week before to change the time. We waited 15 min and finally called the company and were told that we should be inside the courtyard not outside. We were to look for people wearing something orange. Two young women wearing polo shirts were deep in conversation and I tried to get their attention but wasn’t sure why their were two or what we were looking for. After walking about all over the courtyard one finally looked up and I asked and she said yes we have been waiting for you. So they were made at us .... not a great start to the tour. Clearly state the company and exactly where to meet!
I can't really comment on the guided...
Judith_A, May 2018
I can't really comment on the guided tour because our guide was sick. However, I will comment on the organization itself. They provided us with tickets to the Mosque. So we were able to enjoy this tremendously beautiful building. AND they refunded the money which would have gone to pay the guide. I found these people to be very professional and they did the very best they could for us--to treat us fairly.
