We had an excellent visit – the guided visit to the Mesquita was very informative about the history both of the city and the mosque and also full of architectural and archaeological details that made it particularly full of colour. Our guide was knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions which was superb. The second section of the tour, the Jewish quarter and synagogue, was led by Rafa – again we were able to enjoy the sightseeing and learn a lot about the history and background of what we were seeing, which added so much value – very highly recommend this tour to anybody else
