Interesting and well delivered, not a ton of Jewish history

Juan was an excellent guide. Juan's tour in Spanish was incredibly easy for me to follow; I think I literally understood every word, in large thanks to his clear, confident delivery. Our quick conversations in English assured me also that he would deliver a perfect tour in English; he is fluent. Juan is something of a scholar and had some great, Kipling-esque stories of how things came to be-- the spanish word Gafas (not from Al-Ghafiqi, 10th cent. opthamologist/ surgeon from Córdoba who wrote about successful cataract surgeries of the time), the reason behind narrow, twisted streets-- He lead us through a variety of sites en la Juderia at a pace our group (ages 11-70 or so), and did a good job making history come alive in the spaces we visited. He shared little of Jewish history in Spain, and his gnorance about Arabic inscriptions on the buildings we toured surprised me. I recommend the tour to anyone visiting Córdoba!

Excellent - really interesting and Lola was a great guide.

A very interesting tour which should really be titled Cordoba's 3 Cultures. Lola was an excellent guide (with excellent English) - she took us to places we wouldn't have found for ourselves and gave us an understanding of the Arabic/Moorish, Jewish and Christian histories that have shaped Cordoba. We would definitely recommend this tour to our friends.

Geographically about the Jewish quarter but not so much about the Jews

Needed a visit to to the Sefrad Museum before the synagogue so that one could get a better picture of the space and learn more about the Jewish experience in Córdoba. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the three teligions of the area .

Great experience and awesome tour guide!

The tour was a great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the different sights we visited and provided an excellent explanation of everything. Also was able to answer questions all the time. I definitely recommend doing this tour.

Jewish Quarter: Guided Tour with Skip-the-Line Tickets Reviewed by

Small bus route great, large double decker route not so much.

My wife had injured herself at the Alhambra the day before and could not walk in Córdoba so this activity saved the day as one of the bus stops was right next to our apartment making it possible to get on and off with her new crutches.
