Full description
Discover the history of the city and the most emblematic places of the historical centre with gastronomy; this is the best way to understand the local culture. Taste three tapas based on the different historical times of the city. A 2-hour guided tour to not only sample the tapas but to walk around the city at night too. The tour starts in Plaza del Potro. The first tapa will be the 'mazamorra', a delicious soup of bread and oil that comes from Roman times. The tour continues around the Roman Bridge, whose history will be told by your guide. The second tapa is 'berenjenas califales', aubergine with honey. With this food, you will be taken back to the Muslim time of Córdoba, this vegetable was introduced in the peninsula by the Muslims. The third tapa will then be 'rabo de toro', oxtail. Here you will learn about the Christian conquest and this stage of the city. You will finish the tour on a wonderful top terrace with the best view of Córdoba at night, the Mosque-Cathedral. With a local wine, this will end this 2-hour tour.

Way too expensive

I'll start by saying our actual tour guide was pleasant and knowledgable. No complaints about him personally. But the tour was almost US $80 per person, for what probably amounted to around $30 of food and drink, and a fairly lightweight walk and talk through old town. A single tapa or portion at three decent (but by no means exclusive) restaurants, and then leaving us on the rooftop bar of a hotel which we could have found on our own. This was a mistake and a waste. 30 minutes of online research (which we did successfully for most other towns on our Spain tour) would have saved us around $100 as a couple.
