    We booked our trip through a travel agent. Take a pen with you to complete the paperwork. We felt safe with our day pack, you may want to bring a bottled water or snack. Food on the ferry is lousy. Comfortable shoes are a must and you may need a shawl if going into a religious site. Our guide, Janet was really knowledgeable and helpful. She spoke English and did a good job of keeping us all together. She is with you from pick-up, thru ferry and numerous passport checks and baggage/purse scans. She stays with you for the tour in Morocco, although there is a local guide who directs you. Be sure you wait for the bus in the morning pick-up. They may not be exactly on time, we were told 7AM and they arrived about 720Am. Unfortunately we had a flat tire on our return bus. And it was a new bus-go figure. Kinda of a bummer at the end of the night to deal with this kind of thing. Didn't get home till after 11PM.

    Terrible! We were at the stop before 6:15 a.m. and the bus never came. We should have read the reviews before booking, as it clearly happens often.

    The first half of the tour was good and the lunch was good. The first half of the tour gave us some information about the different sections of town. We also stopped at a location to experience a camel ride. A picture was taken. At this location tour members were approached with individuals selling their wares. If one had been refused a sale another individual would approach with another item for sale. We headed to the old section of Tangiers where we were told we were going straight to lunch. We took a convoluted route in and out of the market exiting a least three times. Each time we exited the market we were approached by the same individuals as had been at the camel ride pushing their items. After lunch, the same individuals accosted us yet again! We were then brought to a huge store where store employees engaged in pressure tactics to sell their wares. On leaving, the same individuals accosted us. We then went to a herbal store where we were given a short demonstration. We were offered a taste of liquid ginseng from the cap of the bottle. The same cap was used for the remaining members of our group!! One had the impression that the same cap would be used for the next tour. This should never happen! Especially with the current situation with the coronavirus it is even more paramount that items not be shared among individuals. The afternoon felt very pressured with selling their wares and pictures taken from the camel. Numerous polite refusals were not heeded. It became apparent that no amount of decline would be respected. The tour company must condone this activity as these individuals seemed attached to our tour. Very distasteful and it means we will not recommend this tour to others. In addition the bus driver in Spain was very aggressive consequently having to use his brakes a lot. Not a comfortable experience.

    Trip was great for what it is. If you want to visit Morocco for a day and not have to worry about planning anything, this is your trip. Yes, there are the prearranged shopping stops where you will be pressured into buying things you may not want, but that’s part of the fun. Lunch was spectacular, and overall we had a good time and all the planning and transportation was taken care of.

    We took the trip in January 2020, because although it is rather pricey, my wife wanted to see another continent now we were so close. Our trip was cancelled as we were the only people who had booked that day. Well it was off-season and such things happen , and we were offered a tour the day before, which upset our plans a little but we managed to shuffle other visits around. Our meeting point was in Marbella centre early in the morning, but when we booked a taxi at the reception the night before, we were told that the hotel offered the tour, and changed it so we would be picked-up and returned at the hotel, and big plusses for that. It saved us at least 80 euro in taxi and and gave us a full hour in the morning. The part in Spain was OK, but he part in Tangiers was awful, and follows the line of other guests. Once in Morocco the guide's aim is money. We were taken through the wealthy European quarters and the King's Summerpalace on the NW coast, ending in a parking-lot with some camels and a breathtaking view. After half an hour for those who wanted to ride a camel, we were taken back to town. Here we were rushed through the old market at running speed, no time to see anything let alone buy something, and we ended up in a restaurant for lunch. Fairly OK, three smallish classic courses plus desert, but no beverage was included, there even was a live band. After that it was back to running through the market, and now all the street salesmen had arrived, so it was like running the gauntlet. I have been to Morocco several times earlier, and that is normal. Your being there spreads with lightning speed by word of mouth. Next stop was a larger carpet-shop where some salesmen rolled out 10-15 different carpets in a very uninspired way. I asked for a specific carpet I had made for me earlier, but when the salesman discovered that it was not very big, it is actually a bed, he just went away. Then more running through the narrow streets ending in what was announced as a spice-shop, and Morocco has some spicy spices worth bringing home - if they are allowed through customs? It was not a spice-shop, they were selling - pushing is the right word - substances that each would cure at least 4 major deceases ranging form heart- trouble over sleeping problems, stress and erection problems. Full 45 minutes of time that could have been used for seeing where the ordinary Moroccans lives and where. The reason is of course that the guide afterwards visit those places, picking-up his part of the profit. That is also normal, but should not be the main purpose. If they want to continue this tour, the part in Tangiers, which is was we come for, should be completely re-arranged.

    We did the tour from Malaga. Bus picked us up, therein was our biggest issue. It was like a 21 passenger Mercedes bus, and the seats were set up for 12 year old kids, not full grown adults. I'm normal sized, 6' and 225, and I could barely wedge myself into the seats. Everyone's knees were hurting from being wedged into the seat back in front of them. I got into the one seat in the back row with aisle in front of it, and even it was uncomfortable because my hips were over the edges of the seats on either side. Once again - I'm a fit, normal sized guy. Then they drove through miles of neighborhoods full of speed bumps, furthering the pain... Need to find a better pickup point. Once we got to the Tarifa port it was ok, had breakfast there, got on the ferry, went up to VIP level which is open to everyone, settled in, and slept for an hour. Got on a real bus in Tangier, with an awesome guide named Samir. Enjoyed the views, Samir spoke fluent English, and Tangier was very interesting. Lunch was an awesome 5 course deal with original style entertainment. Once we got into the shopping areas we were constantly bothered by people trying to sell us stuff - but we're good at blowing them off so not that big a deal. Back on the ferry, another nap, and waited a half hour for that bus to come. Another torturous 2+ hours in those seats and thru the speed bumps. Got back at like 8pm after a 530am start. Glad I did it? Yes. Do I wish they did some things differently? Yes. That bus was horribly uncomfortable. Get a real tour bus. Samir the guide was great - but they need to do something to stop the constant harassment by people trying to sell you stuff.

    This was a mistake. Hugely lonnnng day on a bus, lots of standing in line waiting for passports to be stamped, or ferries to arrive. In Tangier, you are a wallet, nothing more. Frogmarched through a market, and into a carpet and knickknack store for a hard sell, then on to a spice store for another hard sell, with people hassling you left, right and centre. We were fed lunch. I run marathons and know a bit about endurance. This was endurance. I enjoyed none of it. Avoid.

    Okay the bad part believe the other reviews . This is not a tour but a multi hour opportunity for Morocco side tour guides to take you from one joint to another for sales pitches , that are never ending and organized effort by tour guide that sells access to to tour groups to street hawkers the same (5-8) to follow you for three hours. Shame on travel Agency "Julia" for continue in this effort. I am all for support local shops etc. but this was worse than anything else i have seen. Avoid this tour and do a day trip yourself. Tour guides were nice enough , picked up at agreed times.

    The pickup was 30 minutes late (6 am not 5:30 am). The tour guide was friendly and good. Drove to ferry with multiple pickup stops from Malaga (arrived 9:30). Finally restrooms and coffee! Took awhile to go through all the passport stuff.. the guide was very good at explaining this process so that was great. In Tangier, lots of walking around the marketplace getting harassed by peddlers. Wasn’t that interesting to me after 5 minutes of it. Lunch was in a fun spot and served quickly. The food seemed bland though. We made a quick stop to see the camels in a parking lot. I felt bad for the camels. Such a tourist trap. On the way back, the ferry was canceled and we had to take the 6 pm one (not 4). This made it super crowded. It’s 8:30 pm and we’re finally back in Spain on the bus and now leaving to get back to Malaga. Be back to Malaga by 11 pm I hope. Ruins my plans for tomorrow because I’m exhausted!!
