What people are saying about Córdoba

This was really cool. The wine in Cordoba and Andalucia in general is very interesting, and it was fun to learn more about the local wine. The host even had a little powerpoint presentation that he showed to explain and teach us more about the wines. It says in the description there are tapas, but it's really just bread with olives and cheese and crackers, so make sure you plan to eat before or after. But overall great experience

Great day trip from Seville, I can only recommend it. The organization was also very good and the guide was really nice and told a lot of interesting things. Córdoba is a must for anyone who likes places steeped in history!
