Traveler Tips


The Sunday tour bumps up against the need to clear the site for formal Sunday Services in the Cathedral - not a problem.
Missed out on the tapa as arrived too late and only wanted a cup of tea (to get warm as it was very cold) which was revolting.

Waste of time!
amanda_l, Nov 2022
Sorry can’t recommend this as the meeting location sent via email from Viator was apparently incorrect so nobody turned up, no communication from the guide until 2 hours later! Very annoying as we’d driven 5 hours to get to the meeting point! Still waiting for my refund!
Stay away
Alejandro_O, Nov 2022
Please stay away from this tour company. As a tourist, I'm not familiar with Cordoba. The Departures point was very unclear. You would think they would use landmarks. Instead, they are using “ baths” that don't show on google maps. I tried reaching out to them, but they didn't respond after 15 minutes in, so we had to pay out of pocket to do the tour ourselves.
Amazing
Michael_C, Oct 2022
Amazing commentary from an incredibly brilliant guide. The story was fantastically told giving a real understanding of the events. This was one of the most amazing sites we have seen around the world.
Disappointing.
reginastevens, Oct 2022
A beautiful place but the guide at the cathedral was boring, I also had a difficult time understanding his English.
So amazing!
John_H, May 2022
Our guide was so amazing! She was clear and concise and made the history come to life. Beautiful buildings!
Visiting Cordoba Mosque with a guide
Canan_Y, Apr 2022
Cordoba mosque should be visited with a guide to have a better perspective. Our guide, Ana was very knowledgeable and fun person
You cannot ask for a better tour!
Yingxi_R, Apr 2022
Olivia is very informative and she organized the tour very nicely not through timeline but through religion. She emphasize the details of the building/historical events and the interactions between two religions. She also gives you two sentences summary for the Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral for those that just want a quick understanding. We have two 8 year old and this is the third Cathedral we toured. The first two, both kids were not impressed and just want to get out. This one they both listened to the end and actually got something out of the tour. That said, Olivia speaks the best English among all tour guides that we used (we had 4 total in Granada/Seville/Cordoba). She also uses simple/effective language that kids can understand. She is very knowledgable about this place. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour, excellent guide
James_S, Apr 2022

I was not able to find...
Larry_G, Apr 2022
I was not able to find the tour. I have written to you about it two times so far. Would you kindly reply?
Guide never showed up....
Naveed_A, Mar 2022
Guide never showed up. Called the number provided multiple times kept hanging up. It's a scam and trip advisor is pn it. They just charge your card and u have no recourse.
Guided tour with tapas and wine, but tapas and wine were missing
Gert_J, Mar 2022
The guide was very talkative, and a little hard to understand, we had been looking forward to the tour with tapas and wine, but this was not included despite it being in the order we had placed. so unfortunately a little bad experience.
Five stars to our guide
Jan_I, Oct 2021

Juan a knowledgable/ passionate tour guide
Sabrina_M, Sep 2021
Juan was amazing. He is very knowledgable and we learned a lot from him. You can tell that he is very passionate about Andalusian history. Great tour and tour guide!
Great place but do it under your own steam
Victoria_S, Mar 2020
Although the guide was very informative and lovely, it dragged on a bit toward the end. As we had to go straight to the Jewish quarter we didn't get our own time to be able to look around and fully absorb this amazing place. If I hadn't quickly taken photos at the time, there wouldn't have been a chance. Missed out on the tapa as arrived too late and only wanted a cup of tea (to get warm as it was very cold) which was revolting. We thought we would get to see the famous patio gardens but - no.
DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR
Niall_H, Feb 2020
DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR We arrived from Seville to be told there was no English language tour that day. The company had not contacted us and could not explain why the guide did not turn up They then said that if we went into the Mezquita, we would forfeit our right to a refund!!!!! This is a scam. The company is called Arte de Cordoba. There are other reports of this happening. Please do not book any tours run by this company
Very informative tour
kcb1969, Feb 2020
Olivia was a fantastic guide, her knowledge was seriously impressive and her command of English - even our humour was super. We wouldn’t have understood the significance of a lot if the history without her, if we could personally recommend her we would she is a credit to you

Great Experience
jpraskey, Feb 2020
Our tour guide Fatima was excellent. Very knowledgeable and answered all questions with patience and attention to detail.
Just Amazing
Grace F, Oct 2019
Our guide was Anna, loves what shes doing ,and very upbeat. Enjoyed every minute of the tour, if you are in Cordoba do not miss this tour. The history lesson is almost more then you can take in on one visit.
A bit disappointing
Regine_F, Oct 2019
I appreciated the effort but there was too much detail inside the mosque/cathedral and inadequate treatment of the deeper historical significance of the Jewish quarter.
Excellent Tour
nsander219, Jul 2019
We booked this tour so that we could look around while still being informed of the sights we were seeing. Our guide Rebecca was waiting for the group early - which is always good. Her English was excellent and we had no problems. The tour pace was good with time for photos. The information given within the mosque was excellent with small asides (eg I doubt if we had been on our own we would have seen the Visigoth church remains). The Sunday tour bumps up against the need to clear the site for formal Sunday Services in the Cathedral - not a problem. THe tour does NOT include the Bell Tower. The walk through the Jewish Quarter was informative and included a visit to the Synagoge (which is free). The tour ended with vouchers for a drink and tapas at La Luna which was fine.
