    Outdated information by Viator

    Be careful with the information provided by Viator because it is outdated. The Tour itself was ok (although the "English" guide could improve his wording), but our experience was completely ruined because of following the outdated information provided by the Viator website. Fortunately, the company that provided the tour was very nice and were able to partially fixed the issue. We tried to claim some money from Viator but Viator declined our application. Lesson learned, book with the locals and don't use Viator as intermediary!

    Another amazing experience!

    First of all, i would recommend doing the tour of the Mosque-Cathedral before doing the tour of Madinat-Al Zahra as it is somewhat of a continuation of the Mosque-Cathedral tour. This tour was very informative, Understanding just how big the area was and just how important it was was great to learn. Listening to how those that ran the city were ahead of their times was surprising to hear. Nothing can prepare you for just how brilliant this tour is aswell as the short video you watch at the end, just gives you a glimpse of how stunning it would have been to see in real life. Definitely recommend this tour if visiting Cordoba!

    Visited Medina Azahara in January 2017. Getting there was fairly straightforward - the bus stop in Cordoba is easy to find. Obtaining the bus tickets online from the local supplier, as indicated on the Viator website, took much longer than expected but, but after some emails and phone calls to Viator, eventually they arrived. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. The Medina is an amazing place, which gives a new perspective on the on Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula. Don't miss it.

    This a great tour if you're looking for something a little off-the-beaten path and will only take up part of your day. It's a shame that so much of this site's history has been destroyed over time, and by various forces, but the efforts to preserve its memory are beyond admirable. This tour is very educational, and the knowledge of our guide, Angie, was beyond impressive.

    Medina Azahara is well worth visiting. It really helped to have a guide who brought the ruins to life. The tour was well organized. We were promptly collected from the agreed location in central Cordoba. Our tour guide, Lourdes, was friendly and had a wealth of knowledge about its history. She was willing to answer our questions about the site. She also took the trouble to recommend local restaurants and other sites to check out in Cordoba. Thank you Lourdes!

    Guía muy documentada. El volumen de visitantes era excesivo. La junta debería controlar la explotación excesiva si se quiere preservar el monumento.
