The experience was amazing. Organized in two legs, 1. Cordoba Cathedral and 2. Jewish Synagogue & Alcazar. Both guides Jose & Jaime are amazing. Both are very knowledgeable. Jaime, has an amazing nature of sharing other tips of Andalucian culinary, where to find, picture taking tips and most importantly great sense of humor.

It was a very rewarding experience. Our tour guide, Miguel Angel, was very knowledgeable about the history and traditions of those early centuries. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of that day tour in Cordoba including the Jewish Quarter, Synagogue, Mosque-Cathedral and Alcazar. I recommend this tour to other travelers.

It was a great experience for me and my family. The motor coaches were comfortable. The side excursions were very nice. A lot of walking on uneven surfaces. Wear good and comfortable shoes are.
