The actual trip to Morocco was great. Be careful, the entire trip, locals are hounding you to purchase their products. Though it can be irritating, remember that is part of your experience in Morocco. I was actually more upset with some of the people on my tour that were being rude to these people. We forgot this is how they make a living.
In Morocco, they took us through the Kazbab, we had a moroccan meal, we went to the caves....we visited a lot of stores, saw beautiful carpets and visited their local pharmacy. They are great sales people there! The tour is about 6 hours.
The tour guide, Pedro, was a pain. I wouldn't even call him a tour guide. He was more just an escort that takes you into Morocco, because we actually get a local guide when we get there (who is great btw. he is a local professor and I believe his english is better than our escort and explains history very well). From the moment we met, I felt that he is was in a rush to have the day be over. Not very friendly and if you ask him questions, he is just short with you. I understand it is a feat to gather so many people into Africa on time and have them return, but it would be much appreciated if he was more friendly about it.
Also, the tour picks up SOOO MANY people from SOO MANY hotels. I was the first pick up, at 5am and we didnt get into Morocco till about 1030-11am. There is a drive to the ferry, but we probably spent about 2.5 to 3 hours just picking people up. We left Morocco at 4pm and I didnt get back till 945pm. We missed the last bus out to granada because of this because the tour company originally told us that we would be back between 8-9pm. So don't plan anything afterwards. Save your connecting trips for the next morning.
This was a wonderful tour!! I wanted to make sure to note that Julia Travel was wonderful! Jussep, our tour guide was so nice and helpful and really takes the time to tell you about the cities we were going to, even though there are local city guides.
The tour has a good combination of free time to explore on your own and time with a guide! I recommend!
