What people are saying about La Mezquita

The tour was absolutely great, we had a guide that was very knowledgeable and fun. We learned so much about Cordoba which has a lot to offer and is full of history. The guide told us about the Mezquita and the Jewish quarter with passion which made this a unique experience for us.

We went on two bus routes the shorter one in the morning then did the 12pm walking tour of the old Jewish quarter. And then in the afternoon we did the longer bus route which over laps the shorter route. We were glad to do both.

The tour guides are excellent. Liar with the mosque is passionate. We learned loads and highly recommend the tour

Very interesting tour available in many languages. Runs mostly around the center, past many sights.

Much better than the same activity in Seville or Granada.
