Costa del Sol, Spain
Land of Babs: Gave 2 stars due to safety factor related to travel on a bus (big thanks to our driver). As an average tourist, expect to see lots of Babs (gates) on your trip! And if you are an English speaking tourist, forget about an explanation in English, better to learn some Spanish on the bus. Bus guide: unprofessional, boarding to rude with neither name tag nor smile to greet us. Muttered explanations under his nose, English words appearing in the middle of the sentence, disappearing as suddenly as they have appeared. I have learned more from Internet about Morocco than from this guide. He wasted our time anytime he could. Hotels: worst in Casablanca (4 star hotel Atlas…) was at best 0 stars…extremely stinky and dirty with limited buffet dinner (water extra for EUR 3 / bottle). Best hotel was in Marrakesh, with a pool for which no time was allotted. We did not spend ridiculous EUR 60-70 on an optional dinner/show set again in a touristy place. Morocco is extremely poor (excluding the king), and you would have thought that tourism would be welcomed in this country. But…with over 99% Muslims living in Morocco, at best you are counted as a walking purse, which at all times must pay for everything (if you make photos of anything! at the market place), without an explanation from the locals as to why. And remember to KEEP OUT! of all the local building interior (including the steps leading to such). The only exception was mausoleum in Rabat, but for the tour price, suggest to visit Turkey instead. Attention, women: if you do not wear a jelaba, better not stroll around unaccompanied by a man, let alone in anything that reveals well…anything. Overall, we overpaid for the services received, I would not recommend this “English-speaking” tour to anyone.
