Elena is one of the best tour guides I've ever met. If you visit Cordoba or Seville, you shouldn't hesitate to book her tours, and you will no doubt have an enriching and fun day that makes your trip more memorable. She is full of historical and local knowledge. She engages her guests with fun details and stories. She is funny, caring, friendly and energetic. Highly highly recommend! When we return, we will definitely call her again. Thank you so much Elena!

We had an amazing tour of the Mezquita and Jewish Quarter with Elena. She was very enthusiastic and engaging. She is clearly very knowledgeable, she answered all of the questions we had... and we asked a lot. While in the Jewish Quarter she helped us investigate the flamenco options. She also helped us find a non-touristy local place to grab a bite. Most informative and interesting three hours of the week. You're lucky if she's available the day you need a tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for you kind words, It was be a pleasure be your guide and Ihope you visit Spain again, and Córdoba wait you for the next time. Warm Regards. Elena Vargas.

Date: May 5/18

Elena is a superb tour guide. Her English is excellent, but more critically her knowledge and passion are outstanding. She brought the Mesquiza to life for us, giving us both great depth of historical context as well as fun unusual details that might be missed by a less well-prepared guide. In addition, her little touches and fun knowledge on the excursions to the other parts of the city were perfect. We could not have asked for a friendlier, more gracious and joyful host.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, I`m so happy were be part of your travel and I enjoyed also working with you, you are very nice people. Warm Regards. Elena Vargas.

Headlines: Elena is Incredibly entertaining; richly informative; and, Elena leaves you wishing that you had booked a full day. Without hesitation we affirm that Elena is one of the best tour guides we've ever had. Elena does not simply regurgitate facts; rather she skillfully conducts a tour weaving in historical details and stories in a manner that transports you back to the referred to periods. Elena's passion for her city and its history is obvious and contagious!

Elena Maria arrives smiling after walking 40 minutes from her parents' home outside Cordoba. She is charming & very knowledgeable about her city. We had a wonderful day - a local produce market (which we never would've found on our own), a private tour of the Casa de Sepharad, a 15th century private home preserving the remains of Jewish life in Cordoba & the Mosque-Cathedral w/ huge spaces filled w /Muslim & Christian artifacts & architecture. All absolutely fascinating. So much to see & absorb. Loved it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for you kind words, It was be a pleasure be your guide and Ihope you visit Spain again, and Córdoba wait you for the next time. Warm Regards. Elena Vargas.
