Barry is incredible! Our group of eight were unanimous in rating him the best guide that we've had thus far on our trip in Spain, and we've had 5-star guides in Madrid and Toledo. His historical knowledge is deep, and he makes 2,000 years of history come alive. Thanks for a great tour of Cordoba, Barry!

Barry was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Cordoba. We really appreciated his taking an interest in explaining to us his knowledge of the roots of Islam and the interplay with Christianity and in Cordoba. His explanation of the history of Cordoba and the cultural aspects of the City was extremely beneficial. in addition, Barry paid particular attention to our physical needs given that the day of our walking tour was extremely hot. I would highly recommend Barry.

From the moment he stood up and smiled when we got to designated meeting place until we shook hands goodbye, Barry provided local insight, historical perspective and perfect pacing for our tour of Cordoba. His tips for the afternoon on our own, including restaurant recommendation, could not have been better. His love of the city is evident and his understanding of the complex cross-currents of history and culture was impressive. Cannot say enough positive things about him or the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ira. Many thanks to you all for your kind comments and 5 star rating of my Tour. I am so pleased that you all enjoyed our time together and to hear that the rest of the day was a great success as well. Wishing you a wonderful rest of your vacation. Kind regards. Barry

Wish we could have spent more time with Barry. What a fabulous tour guide!! Two "senior" couples from US spent 3 hours touring the beautiful city of Cordoba with him. We took the train from Seville and followed Barry's instructions to the meeting point. We can't say enough about his organization, his knowledge, his command of the English language, and his great sense of humor. Barry made suggestions for us until our afternoon train and even walked us to a FABULOUS restaurant for lunch! BOOK THIS TOUR!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Claudia. Very many thanks for your wonderful comments and the 5 Star rating of my 3 hour Tour of Cordoba.

He shared with us a lot of information about the history of Spain (all the way back to the Roman times and even prior). He also gave us some good tips for a restaurant and on our visit to La Mesquita the next day.

Our party of 4 adults and two children ages 9 and 11 did a custom tour of Cordoba with Barry S in June. It was absolutely fabulous. Barry really knows his subject; he engages clients in conversation (as opposed to reciting a canned speech), is responsive to questions and was more than willing to alter the tour to meet our needs on a day when it was 111 degrees Fahrenheit. We highly recommend him

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Betty and family. It was my pleasure to have met you all and to have been given the chance to show you around our beautiful city of Cordoba. Very many thanks for your 5 star rating of my Tour and your kind words. I hope that you all enjoyed the horse show later that evening and your visit to the medieval Synagogue the next day. Kindest regards to you all. Barry.

This tour was outstanding. We had children and adults and Barry's ability to set the tone for all ages was super. Barry took us on a great walk around the city and gave us a wonderful, enthusiastic history lesson but also included little looks at how people live today. One great thing about this tour is that we toured the city but not the mosque, where we stood in the garden and Barry gave us the high points and then we visited after lunch - an efficient use of our time. I highly recommend Barry.
