It was a good organized guided tour, even though sometimes it was just too much information. The sun is tiring there, and there is no cafetería. Bring your own water, for children no food allowed. They got already desperate. A lot of people, sun...but it was worth it. Something you must see!

In my opinion, it is a visit that is essential to do with a guide who will explain what you are seeing. The visit is very interesting, totally recommended. What can be improved is the application, we thought that we had booked the visit with the transport because that was the option that we had marked and yet it was not. The company that runs this tour in Córdoba clarified our doubts and solved it.

Even though we knew the tour was in Spanish, no English words from the guide not even hello. On 2 occasions, even though we had time before and after the screening of the film, she refused to allow us to go to the bathroom. It's been several activities that we book with get your guide and this has never happened. Maybe next time we'll consider another supplier. Shame!
