    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.

    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.

    Most time was spent waiting. Did not see any snake charmers and had no/little time in some places and way too much time waiting in line for the ferry or waiting for it to take off. Need at least 2 days to see the place.

    This tour was great, it was an early start and a late finish. we were picked up at 7 am and there was a lot of stops on the way picking up from other areas, we did not get home till 10.30 so it was very very long and we were exhausted.. but if you can put up with the bus journey then this was well worth the visit. Tangiers poured rain all day but it did not stop us having a fab day. the shopping experience was something else. and the lunch was very good the food was delicious and wine too. it was an experience i would not have missed and so glad we did it even though it was a very long day. excellent value for money i would recommend it to all.

    Our tour guide was great, helpful and went out of his way to answer questions. Very much enjoyed the camel ride and going through the open market

    Pros:
    -We got to say we were in Africa
    -Neat experience in Morocco

    Cons:
    -This tour did not do a thorough job of explaining the day's itinerary. This amounted to a 14+ hour day.
    -We arrived for the ferry 2 hours before we needed to board. There was no reason for this. We were told to be ready for a 7am pick up only to sit around and wait.
    -The security checks for Spain going to and from Morocco were fine, but Morocco has some major catching up to do to get themselves into the 21st century. 6 check in's total throughout the day, and 4 of the 6 were repetitive, unnecessary procedures. No one checked your purses, and the body scanners were a joke!
    -Passports were of course a must when traveling to other countries, but to look at them 6 times?... why?!
    -We were given slips to show we paid for round trip on the ferry. Many people had to wait in line while the ferry was headed to Morocco just to show a slip and have our passports scanned... again.
    -Our precious slips were not collected on the way back to Spain. Why have them if you're not going to check for them?
    -The tour guide going to Morocco and back was nice enough, but many times we were told we were headed somewhere only to sit around for an hour or two in the middle of nowhere. Much longer day than expected or necessary. The Moroccan tour guide would come and go when he wanted, and leave us alone for an hour or so.
    -Tour guide who took over and showed us Morocco was a JOKE!! Our first part of the tour was to the market. We briefly went through the market to head to lunch. The tour guide told the restaurant owner that we didn't have time for lunch, and made the waitstaff rush to serve our food and beverages. Many did not have enough time to eat. Lunch was not until after 2pm, so it made for a long day for those who had not eaten that morning.
    ****DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING WHEN IN MOROCCO UNLESS ITS SEALED BOTTLED WATER!!! Even the cooked food made using Moroccan water made us sick the next day.
    -If you think Morocco will be like the movie Aladdin, guess again. So many people following us and waiting for us while on our tour trying to sell us magnets, plastic toys, hats and scarves. They touched you, got in your face, and were very pushy. Your only relief was moving into a building for the next part of the tour only to deal with pushy store staff.
    -This was NOT a tour. This was a way for pushy store owners and staff to sell their products and force you to feel you had to buy to make them go away.

    This is the first time a Viator tour disappoints us; for starters, we had to get up at 4:30 am to be picked up at a meeting point at 5:30 am, which would have been just fine if once at the ferry station, we hadn't had over two hours to kill because our ferry was scheduled to depart at 1:00 pm, even though there were two more ferries departing before ours, having arrived a bit before 11:00 am. The ferry ride was fine and fast but once in Morocco, we were taken by bus to visit the wealthy neighborhoods of the city, which have no cultural or historical interest whatsoever, we didn't visit any monuments, historical sites or the advertised Caves of Hercules, which were part of the tour (weather permitting) , and it was a beautiful clear day. We stopped in the parking lot of a club in a nice neighborhood, where three camels were waiting for us to give us very short rides of about 100 meters and back; I was on top of a camel for less than three minutes, on a parking lot of a club! not exactly the place where you would picture yourself riding a camel. The guide was nice but very hard to understand neither in English or Spanish. After the "bus tour" we were taken to lunch to a typical Moroccan restaurant, which was fairly good but not very generous. After lunch, we were taken to the market, led as a group into a three story store for shopping, but the prices were outrageously expensive. Afterwards, we were led to a "Moroccan Pharmacy" where a guy in a white coat gave us a presentation of sorts on natural products and tried to sell us stuff. After that, we were led again into a small square and given 30 minutes of free time to shop around. We went back to Spain at 5:00 pm and arrived in our hotel at 11: 00 pm. I was expecting a lot more of a cultural experience

    This was more of an ordeal to be paid for than something I would willingly do again, I'm afraid. Just not my thing.
    Traveled from Malaga so a 5:30am start followed by over 4 hours coach with multiple pickups to get to the ferry port. No scenery, as we were traveling in the dark. no commentary either, silence all the way.
    Then, we had a 2 hour wait standing around at a small, crowded ferry building. Ferry left at 12pm, but once on the ferry we had to wait in a single long line for another 30 mins to get our passports stamped.
    On arrival in Tangier, we boarded another coach, but the guide made us move seats so that one group could sit together. This we did even though we only had 15 minutes ride to our stop. Overly fussy.
    After a brief stop to see some camels, we were shepherded into a carpet and souvenir store and not allowed to leave the building until we had dutifully visited all 3 floors and been through a carpet sales pitch. I tried to go outside, but was told to get back in.
    Then, through the narrow streets being harassed by everyone to buy more stuff, a stop for lunch (which was good) and into a spice store for another sales pitch.
    That was it in Tangier. We got no history, no culture, just sales pitches. I've heard of companies doing this when they try to sell you a timeshare - paid for accommodation and trip, but you have to go to a presentation. Here, we paid for the trip, and had to sit through 2 presentations and 9 hours of a bus ride.
    Back onto the coach, back to the ferry for a 5pm departure, then back along the same route in the dark to Malaga, getting there at 11.30pm.
    It's put me off going on a coach tour ever again. If you're looking for carpets, spices and souvenirs then this is a trip for you, but I have to say I hated it, and couldn't wait to get back to my hotel. Awful.

    Our trip to Tangier, Morocco was rescheduled due to a religious ceremony conflict. However, the trip was well worth taking. We enjoyed the bus ride around the area explaining the many sites and making stops at various points along the way (the caves of Hercules was my personal favorite). The guides were knowledgeable and fluent in many languages. My most memorable experience was riding a camel on the African continent. It is a long day and customs takes a long time, but again, well worth the effort. Thank you Julia tours for your part in making memories that will last a lifetime. Lori

    The tour guide pushed us through the city it was way too fast. Book at least a 1 night stay in Tanger!

    Well organized, though!
