Costa del Sol, Spain
Other than the fact that our Spain-side guide (Enrique) was totally late and made us feel we would miss the boat across, this trip was fantastic....the Moroccan side guides were wonderful at describing sites and history as well as making sure you saw or found what you wanted in Morocco! One of our favorite parts of our trip to Spain-Portugal that week! Only disappointment was we didn't get a stamp on our passport....if you do this trip and want the stamp, on the way over, go get your passport stamped while on the ferry, even though it isn't required!
Enrique was a fantastic guide and we loved the Alhambra and Granada! Our only regret...we didn't have more time to linger and explore the beautiful gardens! Generalife gardens were just beautiful!!!!
the madrid city tour was pathetic....a bus ride with someone saying 'to your right is a building, and on your left is a building....' very uninformative with no history or interesting aspect to it. One stop...20 minutes at an area with nothing other than the Hard Rock Cafe that wants your business and is in cahoots with the tour company! There are better places to stop...like the gardens next to the Prado!
The Royal Palace Tour, however, was fantastic and our guide was excellent....maybe you can just get this piece of the tour?
The tour says it's 3 hours, but it's more like 4 or 5 as the royal palace is at least 2 hours in itself! madrid city was about 2 hours.
the tour company was very unorganized in the morning with tons of people waiting for a variety of tours....
