It was a fantastic almost private tour that we experienced. 90 minutes of Cordoba Mosque - knowledgeable, intriguing and very interesting. Afterwards Jewish Quarter and Alcazar with Haim was something else - funny and relaxed but at the same time very educating tour - just the way how knowledge should be transmitted. Altogether - highly recommendable anytime.

It was very well-rounded. We covered a lot of ground in a very gracious way. We were lucky with our guides, they are all graduated from the Art Faculty and know how to keep a crowd entertained. Best money spent ever

Consuelo was very knowledgable and tried to accommodate all members of the group.

Excellent tour, good coverage in Alcazar, the Jewish Quarter, etc.

Great experience. Excellent guide , very unique place !
