Very good for Gloria the guide and for Alejandro

Gloria's attention is very professional. I take this opportunity to say goodbye to her since she continued with another group and I stayed in Los Alcázares and I didn't have a chance. Yesterday I also visited the patios with the guide Alejandro. He was great and very knowledgeable about the plants and history of the different patios. I will count on you again! I want to congratulate the organization also for its punctuality and good work.

The tour of the Alcazar of Cordoba was amazing. We were so lucky to have Gloria as our guide. I came across her name several times while reading the reviews of other activities in Cordoba and to be honest the reviewers were right. So you must know I was very excited when I was told she was our guide. Gloria is just exceptional. Very knowledgeable! I did the Spanish tour since I was traveling with my parents. The Alcazar is beautiful, the extensive gardens with multiple flower types. Totally worth the experience.
