Very educational tour of 3 of the most culturally unique sites in Cordoba. As a day tripper from Seville was able to get a great perspective on these sites in a relatively short amount of time. Despite being off-season the latter sites (Synagogue and Mosque-Cathedral) were incredibly busy with high competition between different tour groups later in the afternoon. Note that this combo tour is actually 3 different tours back to back with people leaving and joining at each stop and some repetitive info. Our initial group of 6 was swelled to more than 30+ by the end.. Synagogue was very small and crowded, and the walking the Jewish Quarter tour seemed like an add-on to connect the Alcazar and Mosque-Cathedral tours. Unfortunately due to "new rules" for large groups we were not allowed to remain in the Mosque-Cathedral upon tour completion to view the incredible architecture at leisure. Great for seeing it all but consider smaller tours of each for a more intimate experience.
Joaquin was an excellent guide with a great grounding in history of the mosque. He was very good at showing us the Alcazar, which was so much less impressive than the one in Sevilla. We learned a lot about its history and gardens. His stories added a lot of value. The star of the tour was the Mosque-Cathedral, and Joaquin explained the many additions to the original structure.
Absolutely brilliant our tour guide was so knowledgeable and did a fantastic job, I learnt so much and was absolutely blown away by the, architecture was amazing how they managed to do that all those hundreds of. Years ago is amazing! I highly recommend this tour in my opinion it’s certainly a must see!
The guide was awesome and we learned a lot!. The best guide that we’ve ever had. Thank you Gloria! Excellent job!
Joachim did an excellent job of giving the history of the Alcazar, the Cathedral-Mosque and the Jewish quarter
