    We enjoyed Spain and our Spanish guides. The hotel and buffet in Costel del Sol were disappointing. Supposedly, the tour buys the cheapest rooms so plan on an outlook over the garbage and no air conditioning in May. The lines were so long at the buffet that we never got an entree. Plus the tour is dual language but you may find that you are the only English speakers.

    Morroco was very interesting but our main guide was not very interested in guiding. You'll see all the designated sites but no extra information about the country or culture.

    To start with I received very little information from the Julia help desk in Courtyard Marriot Princessa in Madrid. First tour I was picked up on time and given a fair tour in Madrid, tour was in Spanish/English equates to 70 percent Spanish / 30 percent English after tour were taken to bus station and told return to hotel was on our own, sure would have been nice to know ahead of time.Tours between Spain and Costa del Sol were average, at times it felt like Spanish was more spoken the English. Tours in Morroco were given by another tour group that works with Julia. These tour were outstnding and groups were split into English / spanish speaking groups. Upon returning to Cost Del Sol we were again with Julia. Travel guide made a much better effort here. Stopped for tour in Granada and was assigned to local guide who missed tour time on ticket completely and we never got to tour the palace! Bottom line, had very little information, poor translation during tours, and in general wouldn't recommend this group for English speakers, Also there are many other groups to use for this tour.

    We are two women (myself and my mum with my two very small kids, one was 5 months when we started the tour) they made us book two rooms even though my son is only 3 and the other is quite literally a newborn and could sleep anywhere, ofcourse we paid an arm and leg for absolutely no reason, we actually ended up sleeping together and keeping all luggage in another room. The tours in the cities were ridiculously rushed we didn’t have time to take photos it was all go go go go. Then we went to morroco which was an absolute nightmare esp with children. We had to wake up at 6, we got to the ferry at 10am, got to morroco at 12, and then they drove us from the port to the city we were staying in that night (fez) which was a 9 hour drive, during which they took us to a restaurant for lunch that was disgusting inedible and just down right filthy purely because they have a contract with them. The hotel in fez (Ramada) was disgusting, dingy, old and we had chosen the more expensive package which is supposed to put us in better accommodations. The drive in morroco was at least 6 hours from one spot to another, the tours and the guides were horrible, the food, the pace in which we had to do things was just exhausting. We come to Granada, to be told we can’t take prams in al hamra, so we had to carry two very tired and hot kids in and around for 3 hours without any help from Marco our very rude guide who yelled at my mum “were waiting!” When she wasn’t sure if she would continue the tour or not with them (if al hamra was not accomodating for kids Julia travel should have told us before we booked and now knowing that they are not accomodating for kids then why not tell us?!!!) When we got picked up in costa del sol we were thrust into a bus of 44 absolutely no space to breathe or move making it impossible with two small kids. Why? Can’t they spare another bus?? And every single hotel we stayed in at check in we had to be the last to go because our rooms were never next to each other, on several occasions we were put on different levels it was only when I would ask to be put together that they would move us. I know Julia travel will say that a lot of this is out of their hands but that is not true. They could have made sure our rooms were together prior to check in; they could have told us this tour isn’t suitable for kids instead of ripping us off just to take out money, they could have made sure to put us in better hotels, better restaurants, they could have told us prior to booking that the distances in morroco were painful and long and so tiring. I am so disappointed I feel so ripped off, so cheated. Do not book with Julia travel, if u really want to see Andalucia go with a private tour, this company is absolutely rubbish.

    Good tour. The guides with Julia during the travels in Spain Ishmael and Ellie were the some of the best guides I've had anywhere in the world. Hotels were nice as well. There's a lot to try to pack in 12 days but I wish we'd stay longer in Granada and maybe a little less time in Morocco. Also maybe spend time in Malaga instead of some touristy resort town like Torremolinos because there is zero culture or anything interesting there. These tour groups have a lot of older people on them so get ready to move slowly and be held up for a bit.

    Hemos asistido a este Tour iniciando el 31 de Junio de 2018, con opiniones positivas y negativas.

    La parte correspondiente a España, cuyo operador es Julia Travel, ha sido muy buena, los hoteles, visitas, guías y servicios en general son todos adecuados, felicitaciones a Ismael de la región de Badajoz, acompañante en la primer parte del tour, cuyo trabajo es excelente.

    Marruecos para visitar es un lugar fascinante, el país y sus ciudades muy hermosos, los monumentos, plazas, y edificios históricos, son espectaculares. Sin embargo laa parte a mejorar y mucho corresponde a los servicios turísticos recibidos en Marruecos, operados por Mundi Marroc, de los cuatro hoteles a donde llegamos, dos eran MUY malos, inclusive uno en Rabat que aparentemente es cinco estrellas, pero está muy viejo y maltratado, no funcionaba el aire acondicionado de la habitación y tenía las camas mal tendidas sin cubre colchón ni sábanas interiores. De los hoteles restantes, uno fue aceptable y uno muy bueno. Los alimentos en algunos hoteles resultaron muy malos. El Bus nos llevó a comer un día a un restaurante en una gasolinera donde los alimentos eran horribles, y como estás a media carretera, no había opciones, o comes ahí o te quedas con hambre hasta la noche. El acompañante en Marruecos, llamado Larami, no gustaba de platicar con las personas ni aclarar sus dudas sobre el país, solamente hizo lo indispensable para cumplir sin poner ni un poco de entusiasmo en su trabajo, parecería que sólo están ahí por las comisiones o propinas que puedan conseguir. El itinerario de Marruecos está mal pensado, los días con tarde libre son casi tiempo perdido, en Fez porque dicen que no debes entrar a la Medina por tu cuenta y en Rabat porque después de perder 90 minutos en compras en un lugar muy malo en Casablanca, llegas tan tarde que todo ha cerrado, Museos, etc. Para la visita de la impresionante y bellísima Mesquita de Hassan segundo en Casablanca, sólo nos dieron 20 minutos éstos DESGRACIADOS. La visita guiada en Fez era en realidad una tour de compras, el guía no se tomó el tiempo de mostrarnos a fondo la Medina o ciudad antigua, pero sí de tenernos en cinco sitios distintos de compras tiendas de: Bandejas, Togas, Tapetes, Chalinas y Cueros, parece que es una mafia de ése guía en Fez para cobrar comisiones. Para Marruecos, seis días son demasiados y con éstos servicios mediocres, resultó peor, ya queríamos regresar a España.

    En general, recomendable Julia Travel en España, evitar Mundi Marroc, y para A la recomendación sería buscar otro operador más profesional en Marruecos.

    Viator did not do a good job to ensure julia address the travel issues we encountered. We spent an entire day on the boat ride back to Spain due to poor planning. In addition, the hotel we stayed at had poor and broken services.
