Thank you Manuel for a most excellent private tour! Manuel was both our driver as well as tour guide, and was a font of information about Andalusian history, as well as of course Cordoba and Carmona. We also followed his recommendation as to where to have lunch and it was absolutely lovely. Highly recommend this excursion with him. Thank you so much Manuel!!

A wonderful tour to Cordoba with an enthusiastic tour guide. Highly recommend Naturanda, as they provide an excellent coach bus, and the site visits are well planned in advance.

Carmona was passing through, nice but nothing exceptional. The real attraction is Cordoba: incredibly beautiful, highly recommended !!
