This is a brilliant day out and you get to see more than just the fabulous moorish heritage of Cordoba We all went to a recommended restaurant and it really made the entire day feel like a day spent with friends rather than a rag-tag group of strangers Many thanks to Guido for making it as memorable a day as possible

Well structured trip, both for travel and for the time available to visit the two destinations. The guide (Guido) outstanding! Available, well prepared in explanations and in sharing anecdotes and curiosities about Spanish culture. Recommended tour, beautiful experience.

It was a great experience. Our guide, Guido, was very nice and gave us a lot of tips as well as illustrating the main tourist attractions. Cordoba is wonderful, a must see. Carmona is smaller but rich in Roman remains and more ..

Great tour and great tour guide. Manuel was incredible and knew a lot about the history of the region and city of Cordoba.

Beautiful heritage buildings and icons in Córdoba and Carmona. Punctual time arrangement, informative Guide.
