A private tour is always something special, we had a very nice day today. Our guide Manuel was very informative, very friendly and gave us a lot of time so that we could see everything. The tour of Mezquite was very good and you had plenty of time for everything. Afterwards we could even have lunch in peace and then we even had a final tour. We definitely recommend the travel agency

This is a brilliant day out and you get to see more than just the fabulous moorish heritage of Cordoba We all went to a recommended restaurant and it really made the entire day feel like a day spent with friends rather than a rag-tag group of strangers Many thanks to Guido for making it as memorable a day as possible

Well structured trip, both for travel and for the time available to visit the two destinations. The guide (Guido) outstanding! Available, well prepared in explanations and in sharing anecdotes and curiosities about Spanish culture. Recommended tour, beautiful experience.
