    Fantastic day out!! However I wish I'd done this over two days because I ended up with information overload. The Mosque is incredible and the town itself full of narrow streets and lots of shops. Our guide Anna really knew her stuff when telling us about the history of the place.

    The actual tour of Cordoba was great with time spent at the Mosque Cathedral and then a walking tour through the Jewish quarter and synagogue. Approximately 2 hrs of free time was also nice. The main complaint I have about this tour is that we spent 2 hrs picking up people in the morning, and then 2 hours dropping people off at the end of the day. Made for 8 hrs of traveling in the bus, which seemed like such a waste of time.

    The guide, Paco, was a joke. His only explanation on the long drive to Córdoba was about the olive groves and production. We learned nothing about the history of the city or the sites we would visit. In fact, he never told us the name of the Mezquita, just assumed we knew or our other guide would tell us. On the ride home, he demanded to be dropped off the bus in Malaga, leaving he bus driver, who had not been there during initial pick-ups, to fend with driving the passengers to their varied locations, many of which he did not know in a language he did not speak. The driver, also Paco, was extremely professional and apologetic for the delays. We started our trip at 6:50 am and after a three hour return ride, arrived back at our hotel at 7:30 pm. A very disappointing experience due to an extremely unprofessional guide!

    We were the first passengers to be picked up at our hotel at 615 am. The tour bus was clean and modern. The tour guide, Paco was polite and knowledgeable. He conducted the tour in 3 languages: English, Spanish and German. He was flexible and permitted an unscheduled emergency bathroom stop. We arrived at Cordoba to visit the Mosque Cathedral of Cordoba which is on the UNESCO world heritage site. The Mosque cathedral was very impressive and we were in awe of the magnitude and scale of the building, the different phases and transformation of the mosque into a cathedral. Our local tour guide, Maria Jose was calm, and knowledgeable. She also led us on a walking tour of the Jewish quarter as well as the Arabic quarter. We had some free time to explore the area and to grab lunch. The one thing that caught us by surprise was the prevalence of smoking by tour guides and tourists alike. Being from the Pacific Northwest in the United States, we are not accustomed to second hand smoke. This negative exposure was most noticeable by my 11 year old son. Perhaps this negative experience will make an impression on him to deter him from smoking in the future. With all the other stops along the way to drop off the other tourists, we were the last ones to be dropped off, returning to our hotel after 8 pm.

    Required difficult telephone conversations for highway/busstop pick-up in darkness; 30 minutes late; bus had four language requirements which was very disturbing after unexpected 2-hour trip for all hotel pickups; three hour drive from Malaga with one needed rest-stop was ok; Cordova cathedral local guide in English was very good, but group was too large particularly strung out walking through old-town; tapas/lunch selection on own but enough ti,er free 2 hrs; return trip long and tiring; bus guide Anabelle became ill and her efforts were feeble; safe and late return to highway bus stop

    we booked this trip before we left the uk for Spain. We were asked to confirm our booking 48 before. the problem we had when I rang the number given no one could speak English, I then sent an e mail to be informed that I would receive a reply within48 hours ( we would be in Spain so would not receive e mail reply in time) although at the time this seemed to be a problem when we rang on our arrival to our hotel everything was sorted. Our pick up time was exact which came as a surprise as the coach had come from Marbella. Cordoba was an amazing city and I am surprised more information is not given about this amazing place. The coach was clean although I did find the seats slightly uncomfortable. We had a stop each way but as this is used by various bus companies you often find a queue for the ladies toilets. Our coach guide was very helpful, he had to do his commentary in 5 different languages but managed this very well.
