First of all, the guides and the driver were lovely, informative and knowledgeable. It seems like an overall problem with the company and the way they run/schedule the trip. Here are a few negative highlight which made the day overall chaotic and not what we expected based on the trip description/what we paid for:

-the tour overall feels overpriced. For one, you have a lot of people involved, driver, bus tour guide, and a Córdoba tour guide. The bus tour guide was nice, but overall not needed if the driver was able to do both roles. Since the bus tour guide didn’t really have a ton of knowledge about Córdoba and didn’t provide a ton of education on the drive, the driver could have easily drove us and then told us where to meet up when we were done.
- we were supposed to get to/from hotel transport but had to walk 7 mins to pick up and 15 mins back - first world problems, but we paid $120 each... so I expect some level of comfort
-person “added” to tour at 7:45 am - this is what we were told at least.. we were told we had picked up everyone and were on our way, but then the bus guide said he was told someone was “added” and we had to go get them. Turns out it was at a hotel we had JUST been at. I’m wondering if the tour forgot the person and the hotel called for them or something, and that was just what we were told? I don’t know how someone could add so early in the morning on a Sunday when the office etc is closed.
-we added in the optional Carmona option when we booked with trip advisor (and paid extra) but was told the city was “closed” and to request refund from TripAdvisor. We had to specifically ask after the bus guide reviewed the itinerary - it wasn’t announced and if we had forgotten about it (in the hectic nature of traveling) we wouldn’t have known at all
-The schedule was very off in Cordoba-the tour guide wasn’t there when we got to the meeting place, and several phone calls later the bus guide found out that we were going to have “free time” to explore and meet with the tour guide several hours later. Then we were just directed to the city center to “explore” - which is fine, I’m an adult, but I hadn’t read much on Córdoba (what to see, eat, do) because I though were would get more info on the bus ride, and from the tour guide to inform what we did later on in the day. So we were kind of wandering and for sure could have done a much better job with the info gained from the tour via the original schedule. We gleaned that the original tour guide canceled or just didn’t show - no real explanation was provided.
-when we finally got a tour guide, we only had a 3 hours to do everything (the Alcazar, the guided walking tour, Jewish synagogue, and the Mosque) and it was frantic. It was rushed and piecemeal. It would have been better with the tour as advertised because we would have gotten more time to exploring on our “free time” with the guided tour ending at one of the spots. I’m not sure if the tour guide is typically booked for only 3 hours - the schedule on the trip advisor page says 30 mins for each place, and now, having done it, it isn’t nearly enough time
-the trip advisor post says “front of the line” access, but waited 30 mins in line. Again, first world problems, but when you only have 3 hours with the guide, and 3 monuments and a walking tour, it’s a lot of wasted time. It was explained that it doesn’t usually happened like this and was due to it being Sunday, but if the trip wasn’t flipped to the guided tour in the afternoon it wouldn’t have happened
-Book with caution if you want a tour in a language other than English or Spanish!!! Because the initial tour guide wasn’t there and they had to find someone else last minute, the person they found didn’t speak French and a French family was completely lost for most of the guided tour. They were told to ask for a refund from trip advisor, but it’s the company’s fault for sure
-I’ve been on many tours in a lot of places, and one of the things I most enjoy is learning about where we are and where we’re going from a local - an almost 2 hour bus drive one way is a great time for this, but we didn’t get a ton of info (our bus tour person was knowledgeable and did speak for about 30 mins for the whole trip) but I feel like other tours have done a better job with info and education during drive time. We found out later that the bus guide hadn’t been to Córdoba recently, and didn’t have any recommendations in where to eat, use the bathroom, etc once we arrived.

Overall, I would suggest not booking this tour - you would be better served to take public transport, book tickets online for sites, and read up ahead of time about Cordoba - the city, history, etc. You would save money and be more in control of your experience.

Beautiful excursion to Old Town Cordoba surrounded with City Walls, narrow streets and typical shops. The Meskita is simply amazing and shows a beautiful combination of both Mosque and Christian Cathedral features. Not to be missed.

I really enjoyed this tour mainly for the mosque cathedral which was genuinely one of the best buildings I’ve ever seen! So interesting and unique! The tour guide Ana was excellent really knowledgeable and took us to the alcazar and Jewish Quarter giving us lots of information in an engaging way. We could have easily spent another couple of hours in addition to the free time of 2 hours given after the tour as there’s lots to see and Córdoba is a beautiful town.
The only thing that I would critique is that during the journey time (nearly 2 hours each way) there was no commentary from the guide about Córdoba or Andalusia so we felt this was a lost opportunity to add value especially seeing how expensive the tour is. If this tour had been 50-60 euro per person then it would have felt more like a 5 star experience in terms of value for money

The Umayyad Mosque is a magnificent piece of work, with a complicated history, my simple advice to every body, is to take 15 minutes before going in, to read the provided brochure, it will help you understand and enjoy the Mosque more, even if you have done some reading on it before. if you do that, then you walk through the Mosque in the order it was built and expanded, and you will understand your tour guide better. We were lucky, because our tour guide was really good (Ana), she really added to my knowledge about that area, she gave us information that you can’t find easily, like picture number 4, it’s for an Andalusian eye surgeon ( Mohamed Al Gafequi), he was honored by the city of córdoba with that statue, and a common word for glasses in spanish comes from his last name (gafas), picture number 5, is the front of an eyeglass shop near the Mosque-Cathedral.
One thing to note: we booked our tour on Sunday, the Cathedral has a service from 11:30 to 3 pm, this might interfere with the line up of the day, in our case, it was ok, because we got to do it in the AM, and spend a good amount of time in it.
When you reach the Al mihrab of the Mosque, make sure to check with a campus, which direction it is pointed at, an interesting fact: it’s pointing South toward Morocco, and not east toward Mecca ( look up the reason, it is a very sweat reason).

Of course you can visit anywhere without a tour guide, but then you’d miss out on the infectious joy people like Anna spread when they tell you stories about where you are standing and the history of how it got there. If my history teachers had been half as excited about what they were teaching, some of what I learned might have stuck a bit better! The group was small, the van comfortable, the on-board guide Pablo informative (and excited) too. Highly recommend.

We were picked up on time at our hotel in a Sprinter-type van. Roman (the guide) and Lola (the bus driver) were great. The drive to Cordoba was informative and interesting, with Roman pointing out notable items and historical background along the way. He had exceptionally strong English and was engaging, dynamic and knowledgeable. The van was pretty cramped for leg room but was new and clean. We made a short coffee break outside of Cordoba.

When we arrived in Cordoba at 10 a.m., the local guide, Maria, took over. She was knowledgeable, but allocated time strangely and didn't communicate terribly well. Maria's English was fair, not great. She was not particularly engaging. The most challenging aspect of our time with Maria is that she seemed to spend inordinate amounts of time in the gardens surrounding the Alcazar, which are attractive, but largely a modern addition. She seemed to be challenged by prioritizing things, not describing her plans for us, and failing to give us insights into how the time would be spent. She treated everything as equally important. The tour of the Jewish Quarter was fine, but dragged a bit. Maria left the Cordoba Mosque for last and we didn't arrive there until shortly before 1:00. She kept us until nearly 1:40 and people were hungry. A couple of people just walked out in the middle of her droning presentation, saying they were starving. It would have been much better had she communicated her plans initially upon our meeting, or allocated time more sensibly. Another aspect of the tour I didn't love is that, once we got to the mosque, 15+ additional people joined our group. We had no break from 10 to 1:40.

After a late lunch on our own, we met back up with Roman and Lola at 3:30 and had a pleasant drive back to Seville. Roman had a number of helpful suggestions for members of our group who had questions about additional sites to see in Andalucia.

Not a bad tour by any means, but not great either.

Bus arrived at our pickup spot on time, comfortable small bus with good ac. Our guide named Pablo was humorous and knowledgeable. Half hour break to get a coffee and use restroom then met our guide Ana, who was amazingly patient and constantly head counting as it was extremely crowded on the day in every area we visited. It was an easy way to see and learn without the stress.

Can not recommend this tour at all - a shambles from start to finish. Tour bus didn’t turn up at pickup point, after 1 call tour guide arrives and tells us there is no room in bus, and a taxi will take us to Cordoba. This is the last time we have any contact with tour guide. Have to make another call to office before taxi arrives, we have been waiting on street corner for 1hr 10mins past pickup time. We are left in Cordoba at another tour operators office who tells us (3 of us) that we can’t have a ‘comfort’ break as our tour started 45mins ago and we have to catch them up. We refuse - we wanted what we paid for ie full guided tour as it wasn’t our fault we were late. Eventually a tour guide from yet another tour company agrees to take us as a favour. By this time, 11.30, we are an hour late and are rushed through everything in about 2 hours. Everything very busy, and very hot. Didn’t have any contact from tour company about pickup, we have to chase again. Very aggressive attitude from everyone concerned - treated as a nuisance, happy to have our money but not give even the most basic service and courtesy. Two of us from uk and had phones to make calls, 3rd person from Canada had no working phone but they would have just left her stranded in Cordoba. Disgraceful.

We took this tour from Seville to Cordoba. We were 4 people and took the spanish tour. The tour is well organized and covers a lot within a day. The excursion tour guide was very friendly and answered any questions we had in the ride there, as well as point out important facts on the places we were seeing on the drive from Seville to Cordoba. The tour guide for the walking tour in Cordoba was very friendly and shared so much information about the place. Having an amazing tour guide definitely help to like this city even more! The Mosque is breathtaking and it combines different religions in one place, a must visit! You will also have time to grab some food and do some shopping before you need to head back to Seville.
Will definitely recommend this tour!
