Cordoba’s Mosque-Cathedral is a must-see gem

Cordoba is such a beautiful and historical place and the entire trip went as smoothly as possible. Even though the visit to the Cathedral was a little chaotic at the beginning, the tour of the Cathedral did not disappoint.

Excellent day rtrip from Malaga to Cordoba
Elaine_P

Maria - the guide for the English group in Cordoba - was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The cathedral/mosque was a "must see" Raphael's knowledge of languages was excellent and very well organised and informative on the tour bus. In our free time we took a walk over the Roman Bridge where the views were excellent. Make sure you get to the Alcazar which closes at 2.30 and which you could have time to visit.

DO NOT WATSTE YOUR MONEY WITH VIATOR OR JULIA TRAVELS.
Khadija_B

DO NOT WATSTE YOUR MONEY WITH VIATOR OR JULIA TRAVELS. Booked an entire trip to Andalusia as the tour for Cordoba was what i was looking forward to. The details provided by JULIA TRAVELS were ALL wrong (pick up location, colour of coach not specified, tour guide didn’t bother to call us). Two of us, waiting at the same spot (bus stop no. 11 - as specified on the confirmation email) missed the coach. When we tried to contact JULIA TRAVELS, the operator was non-english speaking. He ‘lied’ by saying that the coach will be late and there are other people waiting to go to Cordoba. We waited for almost half an hour and no luck. Requested for a refund from Viator and they refused as we’ve been marked as no show. Be careful when making bookings with JULIA TRAVELS cause this seems to be a strategy. They don’t wait nor call people to ensure we are all on the coach. NEVER BOOKING WITH JULIA TRAVELS NOR VIATOR EVER AGAIN 👎🏼 👎🏼👎🏼

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.

Unforgettable Cordoba

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!

The guide at the Mesquite was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining as he covered the history and architecture of the mosque and subsequent church.

Very Good tour - well worth the visit.

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.

Claudio H
, Sep 2018
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.

Wendy N
, Jun 2018
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! ..

We would like to thank your tour leader Rafael regret we missed his surname for a beautiful tour of the astonishing architecture of the mosque and the city. It was a great experience and at the same time it was very educational since we were taken around the old Jewish quarters. For those who love history and architecture, Cordoba is the city not to miss. Unfortunately time was not in our favour, as we would have loved to stay there for a few days to explore further. Well done and thank you Rafael.

The bus trip itself involved 40 , then a stop, followed by 1.5 hours. The bus-guide was very helpful in giving ideas for food and restaurants. The scenery along the way is interesting. The guided tour through the Mosque/church is truly excellent, much better than just wandering on one's own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The pace was steady but comfortable, with accommodations for a bathroom break. After that wonderful tour, the guide then led us through the very narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarter as well as the old city itself. Again, I would not want to try this on my own as it is very confusing. Quite delightful. We had time for a tasty lunch in the old city before boarding the bus for the return trip. Don't miss the ancient Roman bridge. On the whole, an excellent tour, well managed and well worth the money.

If you are pressed for time and want to see the Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba in an organised guided tour from Málaga, this might be for you. Our guide in Cordoba (different from the Coach trip guide) was excellent and very engaging. But we needed more free time in Cordoba.

This trip was overall fantastic! Everything was fun and enjoyable. We definitely appreciate that they were able to pick us up from the resort and drop us off instead of us taking a taxi to the city. The only suggestion is more time needed to shop and enjoy the outskirts of the cathedral.
