Doing what: Malaga Super Saver: Morocco and Granada Day Trips Including Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens
The tour and tour guide to Grenada were both outstanding. We had a great time, saw a lot, learned a lot and would do it again. Unfortunately, our trip to Morocco was canceled 3 times due to unfavorable weather on the Gibraltar Strait. We are looking forward to that tour sometime in the future. For both cases, the primary contact in Spain, Julia tours provided outstanding service.
The 6 hours on the bus was tiring. We boarded in Malaga and picked up other tourists on the way. The tour itself was great with no safety concerns or problems. They should make a t-shirt that says "I survived the Kasbeh" though. The peddlers are persistent.
Too many sales pitches in Tangier--one would have been sufficient (the carpet presentation). Interesting tour..
It is a very interesting place to visit, but we thought the tour was extremly fast paced. There is really no time to ""see"" all you want, and I don't understand why since there is plenty of time to take the ferry back. I'm not sure I would take this tour agian. if you find one with more time spend on the city, take it.
The tour did not take us to all the places that they said they did; we did not go to any sand dunes, nor to a cave, we did not see any dancers, the sightseeing tour left much to be desired, as they made no stops in the city so you could see; the tour to the bizaar was just a big sales pitch, with 5 min. to look around and pressure to buy; the camels were on a piece of dirt on the side of the road. If you just want to "go to Africa" for a day, it's OK.
While we were not 100% satisfied with the tour package as it was, we contacted Viator Customer Service and they were very sympathetic and helpful. They said that they would discuss the problems we had with their tour-operator there. We trust therefore that the tour will be improved and worth your while.
Tour guides were very good, We enjoyed the trip alot. The only down side was the harrasment of the Morocco people on the tour group pushing goods. The government would be better served to curb this in your face harrasment. I believe people would spend more if they were less assulted.
3 hour bus ride to the ferry. Packed onto a bus for a 'tour' of the city, which is really just a bunch of people desperately preening themselves against the dirty glass of the bus windows for an in-motion shot of the gates to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia's sometimes home. A ride on camels (the best part) that you don't get to have because there are too many folks on the tour and not enough time for all of you to ride. A trip to the historic kasbah that you don't hear much about before you are trundled off to spend your next two hours LITERALLY ASSAULTED by salesmen and street peddlers who curse at you when you don't buy their wares. This is topped off by a time-share-esq sales pitch regarding carpets and another on 'beauty supplies.' So, in summary, for approximately 80euro you get trundled, bundled, packed, assaulted, sold, and packaged back, but you get to do it in Africa and you may ride a camel.
Not sure why all the bad reviews about this tour. This is the best tour we have ever taken!!!! Everything was provided as promised, ontime and more. The tour guides in Morocco were excellent, and we had plenty of time for shopping on our own We will definately use Viator again.
The tour was very well organized and the guide was excellent.
Booking the trip in advance online was easy. Making an adustment to our schedule via phone and receiving new confirmations was easy. Verifying via phone 48 hours in advance was difficult due to travel logistics and a holiday. Although I had an email saying confirmed, when the bus showed up outside the hotel, I was not on the list. They did let us on though and from there, it was a wonderful trip with friendly and informative guides. They did a great job getting us across the border safely. I would recommend this tour!
Guide was great keeping us all together and on schedule. Nobody got lost and was a great experience seeing the old district of Tangier. Dealing with the street vendors was an adventure in it self.

Doing what: 5-Day Morocco Tour: Casablanca, Marrakech, Meknes, Fez and Rabat
Our tour guide and driver were very pleasant and our local guides were very informative. We enjoyed the sights that we saw, particularly the medina at Fez and Marakesh. There was a lot of time spent in the bus and I would be inclined to alt the itinerary and leave Casablanca off the tour.
Very nice tour with a very professional crew, lovely boat ride and visit to Tanger. A dash of monotony and standard-visit with the typical spots and "tour-approved" happenings bring down the rating.

Doing what: 3-Day Morocco Tour from Costa del Sol to Tangier
Great tour company. Send detailed address and pictures and time of pick-up point in Malaga - so we were able to check it out before the tour. Lovely tour guide from Malaga - informative and made us all feel comfortable. Great tour of Kasbah - good to experience new places and food and culture...
A good all-purpose introduction to Tangier. Knowledgeable helpful Moroccan guide. Everything well organised. Camel rides, oriental rug sales pitch, and lunch were waste of time. (Tip: seat solo traveler with group at lunch, not alone.) Would prefer more sight-seeing. But good value for money.
