The trip to Cordoba is worth it. The guide on the bus was very informative providing commentary on the way to Cordoba. It was very interesting hearing about the area, the difference in climate such a short distance from Malaga and the olive production. The mosque-cathedral is simply amazing. Our English speaking guide was dynamic and had a good sense of humour. Cordoba is a special place. We will be coming back again next year and will explore more. On the way home we had to take a detour in view of the protesting olive farmers. This was handled well by the guide and bus driver. It was a good day despite this.

We were lucky with very good guides: Jesus from Malaga and Maria from Cordoba. They shared with us not only historical and geographical facts, but also personal experiences and opinions. We appreciated this.

Was a long trip (2.5hrs) but was worth to visit the place. Our guide (a lady) did an excellent job of explaining the history of Cordoba and the Mosque.

Not my first visit but as pleasantly surprised as the first time! If you only have ONE day to visit southern Spain, I urge you to go to Cordoba. The cathedral/mosque is a unique feast for your eyes. The only reason I rated this trip 4/5 is the feeling that I got rushed, particularly in the mosque. Pity that once out, you cannot get back in!

A very good introduction to the site, with a comprehensive tour of the cathedral with a local guide. Very busy, I can see it being difficult at peak times. In our case everything ran to time and we were back on the dot. A couple of hours free time to lunch and/or shop. Some confusion about voucher. My booking message said .mobile vouchers were accepted, the local company's FAQs said not. I didn't take the chance and printed one.

Although Cordoba is a great place to visit as a tourist, the tour operator Julia Travels does a horrible job. They just basically arrange for the bus to take you to Cordoba where a completely different tour operator gives you the tour, so there is always a bit of confusion during the hand off. Our bus and our tour in the Mosque was in four languages. As you can imagine we wasted a lot of time waiting for the guide to speak in four languages. Why can't they just divide the tours by language? Our bus tour guide, Paco, just went through the motions. My recommendation: Definitely go to Cordoba, but with a different tour company.

On a positive note, the mosque was an amazing architectural masterpiece, and I'm happy I was able to see it. Viator contracted with a company called Julia Tours. We were packed into a full coach with Spanish, German, Italian, and French speakers. The little information we got on the way to Cordoba had to be repeated in all 5 languages, so there was not much. After an absurdly long bathroom/coffee break at a rest area, we drove to the city. Although there were probably only 10 English speakers on our bus, Julia tours combined us with several other busses so we had at least 40 people in our group with one tour guide. We did have earphones. Because there were so many other busses in town, the tours went through the mosque one right after the other in a maze-like coordinated pattern. It was nearly impossible to follow our guide through the crowd, which was as thick as a rock concert. Several people in our group started to panic and had to leave the building. We were led through the city after the mosque visit, which was also somewhat stressful because of our way-too-large group. I would recommend Cordoba, but not with this tour! ..
