The Basics

Most city tours make a stop at the popular Mosque–Cathedral of Cordoba. Guided tour options range from an hourlong history tour focused on the cathedral and former mosque to a half-day walking tour with stops at other Cordoba monuments such as the Castle of Catholic Monarchs (Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos) and the ancient synagogue of the Jewish Quarter. Others visit the Mezquita on a day trip from Seville, Granada, or Costa del Sol.

Wonderful
Wonderful experience! The guide was very knowledgeable, accomodating, and passionate about the history of Cordoba. I would not have appreciated the mosque-cathedral nearly as much without the detailed explanations we received on that tour. Highly recommended!

Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba History Tour
The Mezquita should not be missed. It is filled with centuries of history, interesting architecture and craftsmanship. Our tour guide was excellent--knowledgeable but, as importantly, a good storyteller who was very able to bring forward stories and narratives to make it more than just a delivery of facts.

Full-day Cordoba Tour from Seville, including Cordoba Mosque
We were traveling for several months and this was the only tour that we paid for. It was worth every penny, the guide was very knowledgeable and we saw a TON of stuff in a short amount of time and still make it back to Seville for dinner, even the driver was the nicest! I highly recommend their services.

Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba Guided Tour with Priority Access Ticket
Overall a very good tour. I hate to be critical of someone's English who's from Spain as I don't speak any Spanish past hola; however, the guide we had was a little more challenging for us to understand than other tour guides we had in Spain. He was very knowledgeable and we did learn a lot. I would not hesitate to do this group tour.

Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba Guided Tour with Bell Tower Access
Angel Jr. was our guide and he was fantastic - very knowledgeable, nice, and with a good sense of humor. I found this tour to be fascinating and would definitely recommend it. We were there in February, and although it was almost 70 degrees F outside, it was cold inside the mosque and I was glad I had my jacket with me.

Olivia was a fantastic guide, her knowledge was seriously impressive and her command of English - even our humour was super. We wouldn’t have understood the significance of a lot if the history without her, if we could personally recommend her we would she is a credit to you
