Tour continued to surprise and impress

Tour starts with the Jewish quarter which is very fascinating. That bit of the tour does not that long though as it quarter is extremely small. The tour shines though during the Alcazar section. Our guide provided a lot of very interesting info. We had to cut the tour short at the 3 hour 15 minute mark as we had a Mosque tour planned. The tour could have gone 4-5 hours and we would have stayed the entire time. Our guide, and older gentleman with an archaeology background, was wonderful. Wish he was out guide for all our excursions.

Very delightful tour

We enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide was very informative and answered many questions. The sites that we saw were varied from the Synagogue , the Alcazar, the Chaple of Saint Bartolome, the Arab baths, Maimonides Square, etc. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting an overall review of the Jewish Quarter and it's contribution to Spanish culture.

Interesting and well delivered, not a ton of Jewish history

Juan was an excellent guide. Juan's tour in Spanish was incredibly easy for me to follow; I think I literally understood every word, in large thanks to his clear, confident delivery. Our quick conversations in English assured me also that he would deliver a perfect tour in English; he is fluent. Juan is something of a scholar and had some great, Kipling-esque stories of how things came to be-- the spanish word Gafas (not from Al-Ghafiqi, 10th cent. opthamologist/ surgeon from Córdoba who wrote about successful cataract surgeries of the time), the reason behind narrow, twisted streets-- He lead us through a variety of sites en la Juderia at a pace our group (ages 11-70 or so), and did a good job making history come alive in the spaces we visited. He shared little of Jewish history in Spain, and his gnorance about Arabic inscriptions on the buildings we toured surprised me. I recommend the tour to anyone visiting Córdoba!
