We had a wonderful time visiting Córdoba. Visiting the high-lighted places with an experienced tour guide really makes a difference. You enjoy every single detail that might not have drawn your attention, and at the end of the tour, you feel attached to the history, architecture, gastronomy and people of this wonderful city.

Our small group guide for the day was Azahara and she was incredible. I have been to the Mosque-Cathedral before but Azahara, with her in-depth knowledge, truly made the history of this monumental sanctuary come to life. Along with the Cathedral and Alcazar, Azahara was the best part of this tour.

The Alcazar was closed which was a problem but the rest of the tour was excellent The guide was also very good and informative

Our guide Estefania was passionate about her city and its monuments and her enthusiasm was infectious.

TOP! The viste was very educational, the guide was great! It was worth the effort
