Juan Carlos is extremely knowledgeable about the Mezquita and surrounding area. He was very effective in conveying to our group why the building was and is so important, how it developed over the years, and the broader historic and cultural context. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed the time with him!

The tour was absolutely great, we had a guide that was very knowledgeable and fun. We learned so much about Cordoba which has a lot to offer and is full of history. The guide told us about the Mezquita and the Jewish quarter with passion which made this a unique experience for us.

Cordoba is a must do city! Highly recommended and very accessible from Seville. Catherine was a fun and lovely guide the whole day. Very appreciated spending the whole day with her. Proficient in English, Spanish and French! Thank you also Miguel for driving us the whole day.

our guide was so well versed and excited about the political, religious, and architectural history. I do not think I would have appreciated the cathedral half as much without the explanation. This was definitely a high point of my trip.

The site is exceptional. The only regret is not being able to stay inside at the end of the visit.
