We did the 3h visit, with Ana (guide with the green umbrella) she was lovely. The visit was short, although I recommend that you go well prepared with shoes and water, even a hat / hat if you do it in July or August. We had previously been without a guided tour and the difference is interesting, we have loved the secrets of the streets of Córdoba, its history and if you add that all this is told by a Cordovan you fall in love. The mosque, reaching, its people and its patios, unique value in the world !!! Olé Córdoba and olé Ana, thank you for making our visit pleasant, enjoyable and lucrative, we will visit Medina with you again, otherwise it does not make sense. 100% recommendable.

It is very worth it, beautiful ride.

Congratulations to the guide Ana. Very prepared and professional, and friendly and with good will. I had asked for a guide in Spanish, then realized that my grandchildren understood English better, she was summoned on time and was wonderful, with a contagious pride in the culture of her city. The mosque is impressive indeed, a must see. But the whole ride is great.

The visit is very enjoyable and both mosque and Jewish quarter and fortress are jewels of our heritage that are worth a guided visit. We changed the schedule and the order of the tour because being Holy Week the center was collapsed in processions, but in spite of it we felt that everything was very well organized. The best guide, we played with Gema who is super natural kind, has an innate art to tell the story and convey your passion for it.
