On our first evening in Cordoba, we spotted an advert for night walking tours of the City, organised by the tourist office. This sounded like an interesting way to get to know the city and gave us a much needed alternative to an evening wine and tapas.

The tours cost 15 Euro per person and leave from outside the tourist office at Plaza Tendillas at 8.30 most evenings. Tours must be pre-booked at one of the tourist office kiosks around the city.

Tours are available in French, English and Spanish though if groups are small they can be mixed. There were 6 people in our group - 4 English speakers and 2 Spanish speakers - so our guide talked in both Spanish and English.

The tour lasted two hours and covered much of the old town. What was surprising was how quiet it was everywhere and how few people were about, even near the Mezquita. Our guide was informative though he didn't really seem too interested or make the history come alive the way some tour guides might.

After 1.5 hours of walking we ended the tour with a free tapas and wine in Bodegas Mezquita, a popular tapas bar near the Mezquita.
