Our guide Juan was great, & having a guide made the visit much better

Went w/my husband & 11y/o & couldn’t get tickets online without getting the ones that included the guide. I had read that the live could be long for general tickets & didn’t want to take a chance missing this & we only had 1 day in Cordoba. As it turned out there was a short line for general admission & cost was much less than guided tour (5 Euros vs 17 w/the guide) That being said, we realized that walking through the place without a guide would not have been as good. Our guide made it much more enjoyable and informative!

Great place to visit but avoid Sunday

Alcazar is a beautiful place with a lot of interesting stories. The guide Olivia was great. The only issue is that Sunday, you start the tour at 1pm and the place closes at 2:30pm and with 1 hour guided tour, you'll have only 30mn to enjoy the gardens, visit the tour... It's not enough. Otherwise, worth visiting the place with a guide.

Excellent guide, ambiguous internet sales

The guide was excellent however we discovered at the time of the appointment that the ticket was not included in the price although it is well stipulated our pass "guide and ticket". Result we had to pay 4.5 € more per person. It is not so much the total price but the clarity of the sales process that is at stake. We felt racketeered ... but the guide was really good, thanks to her
