Amazing city. The mosque/cathedral was breathtaking. Very knowledgeable guide in a tour that was well paced and full of information. Nice that we had some time at the end of the tour to explore on our own as well.

The tour was well organized. Transport was comfortable. Tour in Córdoba was well defined and our Guide Paki was great. She had extremely good knowledge and simple way to explain to tourists like us. She was not in hurry and give extended detail of History.

Pickup was thankfully easy. The guide was well-informed. I was one of six from Seville. We were joined by another four or so in Cordoba, so the group was not too large. A worthwhile trip.

If you have time, you should do this. We learned a lot about the cathedral mosque from our very knowledgeable guide. The cathedral mosque is absolutely gorgeous, and the little town around it is very touristy but cute.
