Córdoba: Mosque-Cathedral, Synagogue and Alcázar 4-Hour Tour
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 3.5 hours
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.
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!
Local guide (Maria) was excellent! The guide on the bus was ok, but his French (and English) was somewhat poor. Didn't seem as well organized as others on other tours. Some people on the bus switched seats when stopping at breaks or returning. Guide on the bus should advise no to do that.
We was only 3 guys at this tour and Carmen treat us so well! She told us all the interesting storys about Cordoba (were she is born and grew up) and she told us on english but with so much passion! 5 STARS PLUS
Amazing site and extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. We learned a lot about this historic site, would have missed a lot without our guide.
