This was a great tour that gave us a walk through the Alcazar, the Jewish Quarter, the old synagogue, and then the mosque-cathedral. We had two guides for the tour: a guide for the walk-through of the town and an intimate group of 5; and a different guide for the cathedral for a group of 20+ people. I gave this a four-star review for two reasons: firstly, the handover to the guide at the cathedral was confusing and we almost missed the tour, and this new guide was focused too much on dates, facts, and figures, and did not give us a good story about the building, making it hard to stay engaged. Secondly, there were things like the Casa Andalusi that were included in the description, but which we did not see on the tour. Overall, however, I would recommend this tour as it was very informative, and the sites we did see are incredibly beautiful treasures.
The guide Estefania was great. She was a student of history and very curious. We learned SO MUCH from her. The problem on this tour was Get Your Guide. I had changed the dates of our tour from the 17th to the 16th on the Get Your Guide App but they had not updated the company. Cordoba de Pie didn’t have us scheduled for a tour and so they had to get a guide to come for us. That was so nice. We showed up ready for the tour and they said their records showed we would be there the next day even though my voucher said the 16th.
Estefania was an excellent guide and her tour of the Mezquita Cathedral was excellent as she covered the complex history in a very clear way and had brought along some illustrations to make her points more clearly. Her pride in the city and its history was palpable and she wanted those on the tour to understand why and appreciate the site. If you listened you could not help but be impressed not only with the Mezquitq but her excellent tour.
Our guide Hymie? / James from Córdoba a Pie made the first two hours fly by. He knew so much about the city he obviously loved. His delivery and pace of the tour was faultless and engaging. Angela was the guide for the Mosque / Cathedral, she too had a huge amount of knowledge which she effortlessly shared with us. A wonderful day spent in a beautiful city.
We were transferred from Córdoba a Pie to Evertours due to the illness of the assigned Córdoba a Pie guide and the Evertours guide was phenomenal--excellent English, excellent information as to what we were seeing, memorable stories about the sites and people.
