ELLEN_W, Jan 2023
We arranged for a tour of the Mosque Cathedral as a stop between Madrid and Seville. We got off the train and took a taxi. The tour company has a small office adjacent to the Mosque Cathedral where we stored our luggage for free while we toured. The tour was amazing, and we want to go back to Cordoba to explore the city with more time. We learned a great deal about the Mosque Cathedral and our tour guide was excellent.

Dear Ellen, We are glad that you enjoyed both the tours of Cordoba and Seville. We are proud to know that you had a pleasant experience. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you very much, The OWAY Tours Team

Ok tour. Felt rushed
Elma_A, Nov 2022
Ok tour with some good information. Didn’t sppreciate that the guide wanted us to leave right away and give sudio equipment outside, preventing us to explore more on our own after we bought the tickets.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear Elma, the policy of the monument is to dive back the headsets outside of the monument and we can not do anything on that regards. Apologies abouth any incovenience.
Juliet_F, Oct 2022
The knowledge of the guide was great and also skipping the lines was well worth the price paid. There were lots to see.
Guided tour is better.
iram_r, Oct 2022
It was wonderful experience, guide knew well but her clothes were inappropriate for a masjid/ cathedral visit. Interesting to know that qibla is not correctly oriented.
Excellent guided tour
Lynn_S, Oct 2022
Very knowledgeable, clearly spoken guide with excellent English. The guide gave enough information to give a real picture of the history of the tour without overloading the tourist.
Great tour!

Anna_Z, Jul 2022
The mosque in Cordoba is a definitely must visit place. We were astonished by the beauty of architecture. However, from our tour guide we were expecting more historical facts and more information in general. Next time we would choose another company for the tour.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hello Ana, We are very sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations. The tour is aimed at all audiences and not everyone can have the same rating, although it is true that the average rating of this tour is quite good. Thank you for your visit to Cordoba and your opinion.

Jorge_L, Jul 2022
Elena did a wonderful job running the tour. Explained the history with many additional interesting details that kept the whole family engaged.
Tim_H, Jun 2022
I booked a tour of the Ahambre Palace which was very good. The guide could not be faulted and his English was very good. Having booked Cordoba for a guided tour we were very disappointed to find that it was in Spanish. I did not expect to check that it was in English as the web site was in English. Very disappointed that we paid for a guided tour that we did not get.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear Tim, if you check your ticket you chose Spanish tour. Since the seats for english tour were already sold out we couldn´t do anything else.
Elsa_D, Jun 2022
It was informative, the group was larger than advertised and I wished that we had been allowed to stay and look around on our own but it seems that if you are doing a tour, you cannot stay afterwards. However, it was informative and well worth it
Excellent tour, emotive guide took us back in time
gerrynishikawa, May 2022
Loved Elena's tour. She is very emotive and took us through history to get an understanding of the Mezquita. Very informative, easy to follow. Excellent English. Loved it
A little shaky
Chuck_L, Apr 2022
The guide seemed very knowledgeable but very hard to understand. Her accent was so thick you could make out about every third word. Luckily there were hearing devices or it would’ve been impossible. The tour was supposed to be an hour and a half and was about an hour and 10 minutes. It was not one of my better experiences with Viator.
Wonderful tour. Élana our...
Mary_B, Mar 2022
Wonderful tour. Élana our guide was informative knowledgeable and personable. Trip was so good we’ve booked two more during our stay in Spain
Great while it lasted. Buyer beware.
Montrealer, Mar 2020
Guide (Joaquin) was absolutely excellent. The tour was a bit crowded and (the worst part) we were not allowed to stay in the site after the tour was done. We had to go outside to return our audio system and were not allowed back in. They guide explained this at the start of the tour (he said something about a local religious leader's request), but I would not have booked had I known this beforehand. 1 hour and 15 mins is simply not enough for a rich and wonderful site like this.

Spanish History in One Place
Gregory_B, Mar 2020
Overall a very good tour. I hate to be critical of someone's English who's from Spain as I don't speak any Spanish past hola; however, the guide we had was a little more challenging for us to understand than other tour guides we had in Spain. He was very knowledgeable and we did learn a lot. I would not hesitate to do this group tour.

Wonderful tour!! Our tour leader Joaquin was excellent. Extremely knowledgeable about the architecture of the mosque/cathedral and constantly reviewed information. He answered questions in a thoughtful and concise manner. I would highly recommend this tour.
