Barry provided a wealth of information about Cordoba through its history as well as guiding us to special places in the old town. Everything about our tour was wonderful except that he had not checked the published schedule for Sunday entrances into the Alcazar of the Christian Kings. The published closing time on Sundays is 2:45. Although we had several opportunities to go there earlier per the itinerary, we didn't arrive there until 2:45 and we were very disappointed not to get in.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jerome. Many thanks for your 4 star rating of my Tour and for your public and private comments. I am glad that you enjoyed the Tour and hope that you also had a wonderful time in Gibraltar and Morocco and that you arrived home safely to The States. Regards. Barry

I am sure my husband and I would have thoroughly enjoyed Barry's tour and did so for about half an hour when my husband became quite ill and we had to end the tour so he could be transported to an hospital. Without Barry's help I would never have made it. I will forever be grateful to him. The beginning of the tour was great. Barry was very knowledgeable and informative and we wish so much that we could have seen the whole tour. Anyone who asks for him will be getting a great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan. I do hope that John is now fully recovered and that you were able to continue with the rest of your vacation. I thank you for your kind words but I am really thankful that I was able to help out in what was a very worrying situation. My kindest regards and best wishes to you both. Barry.

I booked with Barry based on the previous reviews but wasn't certain that have a Scottish Guide in Cordoba was the best thing to do. Boy was I wrong. Barry was so informative about the area and the history of the city but also was able to provide the backdrop to allow us to understand how things happened. He is passionate about Spain and Andalucia and that's where he comes to the fore in the way he delivers in a fun and interesting way. Many thanks we'll come again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steph. Very many thanks for your kind comments and 5 star rating of my walking tour in Cordoba. It was a real pleasure to have spent 6 hours in the company of you both and I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed our time together so much. My very kindest regards. Barry.

Barry met us at the Roman bridge and there provided us with a wonderful historical perspective of Cordoba. Then off to the Mezquita, the huge Cathedral/Mosque complex that has made Cordoba famous. Barry provided very descriptive insights into both the architectural detail and religious history of the Mezquita making it come alive. Later in the day we walked through the beautiful "Lane of Flowers" and saw some of the famous Patios of Cordoba before visiting the Alcazar. Barry's tour could not be better!

Barry was an excellent guide in Córdoba and made a great day even better. While six hours seems like a long time it was actually about right to see this great city in Spain. The Alcazar and Mezquita were amazing - but Barry made the day more interesting by showing us the city - and explaining both the history and the future of Córdoba. Thanks Barry - if you want a great tour with a well informed local it would be hard to find someone better than Barry.

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.

When I booked our six hour tour in Cordoba I wondered if we would be able to last on this six hour tour. From the moment we met Barry we were fully engaged by him, in the rich history of this incredibly interesting city. Barry's knowledge is amazingly broad in terms of the history of Islam, Jews and Christians and their influence, not only about Cordoba but the entire region and beyond. Barry was also delightful to be with and very professional. I would highly recommend booking his tour.

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.
