    Rebecca was an excellent guide. She apologized a few times for her “Spanish accent” but she needn’t have. She clearly shared her depth of knowledge about the history of Cordoba. Her tour of the Juderia neighborhood and the great thinkers memorialized in that area was very interesting. What was most compelling was how she managed to explain the centuries- long, complicated development of the Mezquita with passion and respect and great pride.

    Olivia was a great guide, Storyteller. Very knowledgeable thus making it easy to understand the long history of the mosque cathedral. The Building itself is a must see, but take a knowledgeable guide. It makes everything much more meaningful. We were just 4 people for the cathedral and only 2 for the Jewish quarter, so really had a chance to understand everything and post our questions. Thank you, Olivia

    We had the 4pm tour with Juan, very professional and personable. We were 8 people, an interesting mix of different nationalities. Unfortunately, the time was too short to visit the Jewish Quarter. Juan was very articulate and had a very broad knowledge of Spanish and Arabic culture, we would have loved to spend more time with him.
