Full description

Embark on a guided tour of Córdoba with skip-the-line entry to the great Mosque-Cathedral. Follow your guide through the historical Jewish Quarter and step inside the impressive Synagogue.

Meet your experienced guide outside the Mosque-Cathedral. After being provided with a headset, start your tour by listening to an introduction to the history of the mosque. Explore the courtyard of the complex, called the Patio de los Naranjos.

Soak up the atmosphere of this peaceful space with lots of greenery, and marvel at the beautiful Bell Tower. Then skip the ticket line to enter the monument without any hassle. Follow your guide as they take you around the mosque.

Admire the Prayer Hall, the Mihrab, and the famous red and white arches, and take pictures as you go around. Your guide will tell you about the different expansions of the building, and all the hidden details of the architecture.

Next, join a walking tour around the historical Jewish Quarter, a must-do when in Córdoba. Start in Calleja de la Hoguera, where your guide will discuss the Jewish heritage of the area and its importance in the city's development.

Stroll around the El Zoco artisans market, the picturesque Plaza del Cardenal Salazar, and the narrow Calleja de la luna. See the souk, the Chapel of Saint Bartholomew, and the statue of one of the most important thinkers in the world: Maimónides.

Also, head inside the Synagogue, one of the best-preserved in Spain.

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

We were very confused on how to find the tour guide, there are so many groups getting together in the same space. It would be better to really "highlight' which tour operator we should look for and if there is a colour umbrella to look out for. Other than that, the tour was great. Our guide was very informative and fun, the mosque-cathedral is absolutely amazing! Not to be missed. Following that we also joined the Jewish quarter tour, not as exciting and really filled with historical detail.

Essential visit in Córdoba. Adequate information to better understand the visit. However, it would be appreciated not to use too many colloquial expressions that show the vulgar when commenting on the topics. The guide was very young and although these comments can be funny for a very young audience they are not for adults with some training. Aspect to improve.
