We had the best tourist guides on this trip. Our guide from Malaga to Tangier was Pedro (Peter) he made the transfer through immigration to and from Morocco as smooth as possible. The other guide in Tangier was also great explaining all the history and sites. One tip to future travelers, buy souvenirs at the first stop of the bus, at the camel ride. At this stop you won't be have too many locals bothering you with their merchandise and you will be able to choose whatever you want. Souvenirs from vendors at this point are good and with some haggling you may bring the price down. Later on and, at the market the locals will make you crazy trying to sell you things to the point that you won't feel buying anything. Overall I highly recommend this trip.

The two hosts/guides were VERY good! The tour leader filled a lot of dead time with interesting facts and had a great sense of humor. The bus was comfortable, the ride was relaxing, and the Spanish countryside was beautiful. Granada was very pretty, though the garden in the winter (without flowers) was nothing special. We are now living in Europe and have seen many palaces, castles, and cathedrals. Granada was not as physically impressive and other more grandiose places in Europe, but I very much enjoyed the uniqueness of its Moorish style. It is a must see for anyone visiting the Costa del Sol.
By the way, we were picked up in Malaga, which was the last pick up on the way to Granada and the first drop off on the way back. Others on the bus were staying elsewhere and said the bus spent hours picking up from all of the different Costa del Sol locations on its way to Malaga.
Very fun. We did this as soon as we arrived in Malaga and it gave us a great orientation to the city that came in handy as we trekked around in the coming days. It was our first Segway tour and we will do more in other destinations.

excellent tour visiting interesting places in Malaga
I would have given this day trip 5 stars if it were only for the Granada Day trip. The tour guides on the bus and at the Alhambra were very knowledgeable, professional, and spoke very good English. The Alhambra and adjoining Medina are stunning and the history of Granada is fascinating. The 3 star overall rating is due to giving the Tangier trip 1 star. The tour group was surrounded by street peddlers the entire time, which made enjoying the walk around the streets of Tangier almost impossible, and too much time was spent ushering the group to rug and spice stores where the proprietors were trying to sell us their goods. If you are on the market for a rug, then this may be the way to go - otherwise, consider another way to experience Morocco.
Just what we were looking for and an excellent local guide in Cordoba.

Great experience. The hammam is amazing, the decoration reminded me of the Alhambra. We booked an early slot so the spa was quite quiet, which was very nice. Definitely worth getting the massage + kessa.
Fantastic place to visit. Alhambra guide was excellent. Coach guide was OK. Timing good
Great tour! Great guide! However, I wish we had more time in downtown Granada.
We were looking forward to this trip and it did not disappoint USA. Very informative and the guide was excellent.
Wine tasting was the best part!!!
Ronda is a beautiful town to visit with gorgeous views of the old and new bridges in the gorge and the wine tasting session was an interesting experience to try the different types of wines produced in the region. The only negative point is that the pick up time in Malaga at 7am was too early as the next couple of hours were spent picking up the various participants from different hotels along the costa del sol before actually embarking on the journey to Ronda. It will be a long day trip as you will be the last to be dropped off at Malaga, probably around 730 pm or later.
The mosque/cathedral in Cordoba is worth the effort to join this tour. A good point about this tour is that you will be split into different language groups in Cordoba so that you need not listen to other foreign languages during the guided tour. Also, you will be the last to be picked up and first to be dropped off if you start your tour from Malaga.

The Alhambra Palace was really worthwhile to visit and the guided tour was split into various languages and this was the plus point so that the guide could concentrate on one language and provide a good and detailed explanation. However, due to time constraint, the guide had to rush through the walk to finish the tour within the time allocated. The free time in the city centre could be reduced to cater for more time at the Alhambra palace instead. Again, if you started your tour in Malaga, you will not need to travel along the coastal del sol hotels to pick up other passengers as you will be the last to be picked up and first to dropped off on the way back.
