    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.

    Muy bien por Gloria la guia y por Alejandro

    Muy profesional la atención de Gloria. Aprovecho para despedirme de ella ya que siguió con otro grupo y yo me quedé en los Alcázares y no tuve oportunidad. Ayer también visité los patios con el guía Alejandro. Se portó genial y muy entendido en las plantas e historia de los diferentes patios. ¡Volveré a contar con ustedes! Quiero felicitar a la organización también por su puntualidad y buen hacer.
