What people are saying about Lucena

The trip was very good. The transport driver and guide on the coach were good and friendly. Our guide Anna was very knowledgeable about the history of Cordoba and the Mezquita. Her English was very good. The only negative we had was that when we were on the guided tour in Cordoba we were given wireless headphones to listen to the guide but the reception was very poor if more than 3 metres away from her. Sometimes it was difficult to stay within this range because we were a party of 25. All in all I would recommend this trip

Nice trip, good historical information - (for me refresher). Good bus driver. Nice information in relation to the local guide's illness. Very skilled and clear local guide. Nice trip over the mountains in nice weather 😊

Punctual. Comfortable bus. Helena, guide in Córdoba, is excellent.

Everything was perfect. An audio guide in French would be welcome

A lovely day all round..Could've done with a bit longer..
