    The tour as such has been less than expected

    The patios are a pass, but the tour was not expected. After being in the morning with a free guide visiting Córdoba, I expected that at least to pay for this tour, the queues would be avoided because, if not, it makes no sense to pay since the guide does nothing exceptional during it ... I would not recommend this tour It is not logical to hire it because you can perfectly do any of the routes that come on the maps ... they should consider offering a plus to this tour to compensate for doing so. Thank you very much. Meat

    We were told in the morning that our English guide was sick and our tour was cancelled. Since we would be in Cordoba only yesterday so I asked if we could join the Spanish group. When we got there we found out that we were the only members of the tour. Nonetheless our tour guide Stephina did an excellent job showing us the beautiful patios. And although she claimed here English was not good, we had no problem understanding each other!

    A fantastic visit

    A fantastic visit, thanks to the magnificent explanation of the history of Cordoba and its courtyards, by our guide Alberto. We will return in May to see the courtyards in their maximum splendor, because if they are now beautiful in spring they are sure to be spectacular
