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!

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.

We took the train from Seville and followed Barry's instructions to the meeting point.

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.

We highly recommend him

There is nothing like a good Scotsman giving a tour in his adopted town of Cordoba. He was knowledgeable about everything, but did it by mixing in some good story-telling, and he does it in a relaxed style. He is very obvious that he is doing the thing he loves most - it is not work to him. He showed us how to properly enjoy a tapas luncheon, and his recommendation of Café Pepe was a perfect way to end our day there. All of us 6 70+-year-olds would recommend him anytime to anyone.

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.

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.

Combined a bus station pickup with a city orientation...greatly simplified arrival and set me up for my second day in this great town. I learned a lot about Cordoba and touring with Barry really added to my time there.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It really was my pleasure to have met you all Kelley and to have had the opportunity to show you a little of what our beautiful Cordoba has to offer.....I am so very pleased that you enjoyed our short time together. Many, many thanks for your comments and for choosing me to be your guide.
