To get to know not only the main sites but also the hidden places in Cordoba there's no better way than to explore the town than with a private local guide who can tailor the tour according to your interests. Our guide Rafael led us through the narrow lanes and quaint flower filled patios of the Jewish quarter while telling us not only about Cordoba's long and fascinating history but also about the famous personages that once lived here such as the Roman statesman and writer Seneca and the islamic scientists and writers Malmonides and Ibn Arab. Rafael pointed out many buildings and details that are not part of an official tour, nor mentioned in your guidebook, which really brought this historic town alive for us. He also gave us invaluable tips what still to see in the short time we had left in Cordoba and we came away feeling that the time spent with Rafael opened up the many layers of this historic town for us.
We had been wanting to get around some of the cities we visited by bike, but hadn't had any luck until we got to Cordoba. It turned out that we were the only two on the tour, and we were treated to a magnificent ride around Cordoba at night, with frequent stops to hear about local legends and rumors. Our guide, Javi, was excellent -- very patient with two seniors who'd never been on electric bikes before (they're really fun once you get used to the quick acceleration!). He spent over two hours with us, taking us through the Jewish Quarter, by the Mezquita, across the old Roman bridge, and past numerous churches and other monuments. Riding across the cobblestones through narrow and winding streets at night, when the heat of the day had subsided, was a wonderful adventure. I would highly recommend this activity!
We were late for our appointed time (watch your WhatsApp), but the team worked hard to accommodate us. Rafael got us set up and Jorge did an excellent job of showing us beautiful Córdoba! There were 6 of us in the group and Jorge did an amazing job connecting with everyone. He made the tempo of the tour perfect, not rushed, and he was very thorough with his information. We will definitely sign up for this tour again the next time we’re in Spain. Thanks guys. See you next time!
Absolutely terrific. Our guide to the Mezquita was waiting for us when we arrived. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and took us through at just the right pace. My husband and I are super-picky world travelers. We avoid "tours" like the plague but wanted to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime experience and Amanda didn't disappoint. The booking process was easy and straightforward, and all my nit-picky questions were answered cheerfully and with personal attention!
We used your service for a walking tour of The Mezquita and The Jewish Quarter. Luis was punctual, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the tour. He was a true expert in the subject of the tour, and, as a result, we had a fascinating time. Extremely satisfied with this tour, and we would highly recommend it.
