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.

Rebecca was passionate and knowledgeable and funny. Thank you for bringing the past alive in such an engaging way!
