Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
The day trip to Morocco was largely successful, albeit somewhat chaotic at both ends. The Spanish guide who took us to the departure point in Algeciras, and rounded us up for the return from Tangier, was clearly harried, attempting to keep track of several nationalities and their associated paperwork. In fact, paperwork snafus originating in the Julia Travel office delayed our return.
That aside, the English-speaking guide in Morocco, Hassan, was excellent. He was slow, careful, knoledgeable, articulate, and presented a great deal of anecdotal informatiion to enliven the tour. He took us by bus through a number of national residential enclaves, led us through a long walk in the Casbah market district, hosted an authentic Moroccan lunch, and continued with the obligatory extended stop at a rug merchant's, followed by seaside touring, camel rides and a stop at shoreline caves.
A somewhat unexpected downside to the morning portion of the tour was the incessant importuning of indefatigable, obnoxious street peddlers who never took no for an answer and hounded the group without letup. Add to that the number of "helpful bystanders" who seemed ready to lend assistance (for a price) and the morning was spent turning people away, or reluctantly providing a few coins. This type of encounter seriously detracts from the enjoyment of an otherwise unique experience.Reviewed by: Neill R, June 2012
A most enjoyable day. The staff were excellent, polite, knowledgeable and helpful. A lot was crammed into the time we were in Morocco. Definitely recommend it and would do it all again.Reviewed by: Tina C, June 2012
***** Very enjoyable and informative. Local guide was awesome. Covered a lot and gave us a nice flavor of the place for the short amount of time. Food at the restaurant though was not that tasty.Reviewed by: Lucelle, May 2012

EXCELLENT - our trip was scheduled for May 1 but sickness prevented me from going with my other travelling companions. Fortunately, Viatour allowed me to take the trip at a later date with no extra charges - great customer service. Wonderful trip.Reviewed by: GLENN L, May 2012

This tour was worth every penny! We loved our giude and he kept us on schedule and we felt safe with his guidance. We learned alot of information that we would not have gained on our own. It is not somewhere to go ALONE!Reviewed by: Timothy P, April 2012
Amazing....The guide was phenomenal as a tour guide and Hassan was amazing in Morocco. The only advice I would offer is beware of the hawkers in Morocco...they are desperate street salespeople and harrass you endlessly...Reviewed by: Stephen K, March 2012
EXCELLENT!Reviewed by: Maria B, February 2012
We enjoyed our trip to Tangier, Morocco. When I called a several days out to confirm with the travel agent I was told there were not enough people yet to make it a go, but to call back on Friday. When I called Friday I was told it was on and they picked us up right at our hotel at the appointed time the next morning. Everything went according to plan and we had a very nice day.Reviewed by: Scott G, February 2012
