The tour was very informative about the history of these places with relaxed pace. Our first stop was Carmona lovely little little city. The main attraction of this tour was Cordoba where we visited some interesting patios then had dinner in an excellent restaurant then ended the tour by visiting the Mesquita and had some free time at the end.

They keep the schedule and leave on time. The guide was very friendly and answer all the questions the group had. Cristina was always aware of the surroundings and help everybody. Very conscious about her been responsible for the group. She went above and beyond her duties.

We had an excellent experienced and knowledgeable tour guide Petra who managed the tour very well We also had Petra for our Gibralter trip earlier in the week and again she was excellent

This was an excellent tour. Guido was our guide and he was knowledgeable and funny. Cordoba is beautiful and Carmona is also nice (it was pouring rain when we were there:(

The trip was fun, the transportation was good, and the trip supervisor had enough information and tried to explain and guide us to make use of the free time
