We were lucky to find a passionate, caring guide. Choose comfortable shoes (the static standing position and the cobblestones of the historic center). A small bottle of water is not negligible. The meeting place was well explained.

We booked a tour online of the mosque/cathedral, tour of the Jewish quarter and Alcazar. The tickets were stored on the Headout app so didn't need to worry about losing them. My husband and I went on the tour yesterday. Excellent tour, the guide Christina (Hungarian) was so knowledgeable about all the history of the tour. She spoke excellent English and was easy to understand. She brought it to life and was very knowledgeable as any question that she was asked she was able to answer and explain. I’d definitely recommend this tour.

Las explicaciones y atención del guia han sido excelentes. Como sugerencias de mejora: Mejorar las instucciones para el encuentro e identificacion de los guias. Grupo mas reducidos, eramos 30 personas y ese tamaño genera dificultades en espacios pequeños y ralentiza mucho las visitas.

La experiencia me ha encantado. El guía que tuvimos (Jaime)sencillamente fue buenísimo. Tanto por la calidad de las explicaciones, por su cercanía, por que fueron 4 horas seguidas y se hizo muy ameno. Repetiría experiencia. Muy buen trabajo¡¡¡

A blend of history and culture at the Cathedral-Mosque of Cordoba

Visit the most important monuments of Cordoba during this 3-hour guided tour to 3 different UNESCO World Heritage Sites. After meeting your English, French, or Spanish-speaking guide, you will first visit the Cathedral-Mosque of Cordoba. Built in the 8th century, it is the world’s third-largest mosque and is considered to be one of the greatest representations of Moorish architecture. Use your priority entrance tickets and gain direct entry to the monument. Your guide will explain the fascinating history of the mosque to you, which was turned into a cathedral in 1236 and is, therefore, is a unique representation of both Muslim and Christian cultures. Admire the astonishing arches inside the mosque, supported by 856 granite and marble pillars, and see the shell-shaped prayer niche as well as the courtyard of the orange trees.

See the Synagogue, the Maimonides Statue, and the El Zoco Market in the Jewish Quarter

Continue on to the Jewish Quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site close to the Cathedral-Mosque. See the Synagogue that stands at the center of the neighborhood and walk by the bronze statue of Maimonides, a Jewish philosopher, and astronomer who was born in Cordoba. Enjoy a stroll through the picturesque Andalusian streets and visit an Arabic Market where artisans sell their handmade crafts.

End your tour at the Alcázar of Christian Kings

Explore the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, or the 'Alcázar of the Christian Kings,' which functioned as a primary residence for Catholic monarchs. Visit exquisitely decorated rooms such as the famous Hall of Mosaics, admire the royal baths with their Moorish motifs, and stroll through the vast gardens. Learn about the historical significance of the fortress, where Isabella I of Castile and Fernando II of Aragon met Christopher Columbus before sponsoring his first voyage to the Americas in 1492. With a visit to the Alcázar, the Jewish Quarter, and the Cathedral-Mosque, this guided tour is the perfect opportunity to see first-hand how a combination of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish cultures have shaped the city of Cordoba.
