We have been convinced that these tours are very cost effective when it comes to finding out about a city quickly and without having to hunt around for hours to get to the right place. Our friends had never been on one fo the 'tours by locals' tours and weren't convinced.......This changed their mind completely!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew. Many thanks for your 5 star rating of my 3 hour Tour in Cordoba and for the comments that you have posted....I am very pleased to hear that you all enjoyed the Tour so much and it truly was my pleasure to have met you all. 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. It was my pleasure to have met you all and to have shared the history of my adopted home with you......the 3 hours just flew by!!! I wish you all continued ''happy holidaying''. Kindest regards. Barry.

Very enjoyable few hours with a guy who knew his stuff, made it easy for us to get involved with the history and delivered it in a fun way. Córdoba is such a beautiful city and our 3 hour walking tour helped us understand the lay of the land. I Would highly recommend this tour and Barry to anyone thinking of getting a much better understanding of Córdoba.

It was super hot outside but our tour was excellent. Barry has a love of southern Spain and it shows. 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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul. Many thanks for your 5 STAR rating of my tour and for your very kind comments. It really was my pleasure to have been given the opportunity to meet you and to have been able to arrange a tour for you and your family. It is always a delight to be able to share the history and wonders of my city with families such as yours Paul. Kind regards. Barry.

Barry gave us a very interesting tour of Old Cordoba. He made the city come to life during the various phases of its history - the heroic, the barbaric and the human stories captured our imagination. He also gave us the historical facts and figures - he managed to capture over 2000 years of Cordoba's history from the engineering details of the Roman Bridge, the building of the Renaissance cathedral within the Mezquita to the Patio fiestas of today. And finally an excellent recommendation for lunch!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol. Thank you very much for your kind comments and 5 STAR rating of my Tour in Cordoba. It was my pleasure to have met yourself, Jennifer and Neil and to have been able to introduce you to my beautiful city. I was also very happy that by being flexible and making some timing changes to our Tour, that I was able to allow you to solve the accommodation problems that you were having in Sevilla. Thanks again for your top rating of my Tour, service and style Carol. Kind regards. Barry.

Barry was wonderful! Customized our half day tour to suit our needs. Was very informative but not to excess, and I am an art history professor who was on vacation. Very congenial, like a new found friend. Highly recommend him if you are in Cordoba.
