It was my dream to visit Andalusia and a purpose, my main motive of the trip was the visit Grand Mosque-Cathedral. I had a little bit of historical background knowledge and I had short two days in Cordoba only, so for me was best to ask professional guide as I wanted discover as musc as possible. I got VIP service only by myself, I mean she guided me individual - she did not cancel the program because only one person booked. (!) She is very professional, She is nice person, She is Cordobes, her knowledge impressive - huge amount general knowledge and lots of small interesting details she knows. She snowed hidden places which I could not find by myself, answered all my question, The rhythm of the trip was just perfect, had enough time for everything. I did not felt rush through it, was comfortable individual guide, I could take good photos too, I had time for it. I got a coupon to eat local food, this way even I learned a new taste as well. I loved it all. You must do it!

Not to be missed

A thoroughly enjoyable tour with our guide Olivia. She was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The Cathedral/Mosque is not one to be missed and is unique. I would recommend a guided tour to get the most out of your visit. Tour round the Jewish quarter was enjoyable too and Olivia took the time and care for our group to see the synagogue on our own, before other groups arrived. Would recommend without a seconds thought to anyone

Very knowledgeable, organised, & accomodating

The tour guide was very friendly and accommodating.she spoke very good english, and made every effort to accommodate everyone old, young, those needing extra explanations, etc. Everything was efficient, and we'll prepared. Tour guide was easily spotted as she had her company t-shirt on. The only issue I had was that kids are free entry, and I was charged for my 3 year old son. This was not from tour guide but rather GetYourGuide, there us absolutely no reason to charge here or Alhambra.
