An excellent excursion. Superb monuments with as a bonus the visit of the Alcazar which was not planned but which was possible following the impromptu closure of the Mezquita from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Our guide Alexis was very responsive and very attentive.

Exceptional Exceptional guide Only downside the driver drove a little fast for our taste The departure from Seville was done without a guide and we did not know that we were expected in cordoba Guided tour in French brilliant exceptional

We went on two bus routes the shorter one in the morning then did the 12pm walking tour of the old Jewish quarter. And then in the afternoon we did the longer bus route which over laps the shorter route. We were glad to do both.

Great tour of the cathedral/mosque! The history, the beauty, the size!

Much better than the same activity in Seville or Granada.
