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.

excellent value for the 2 trips. Both went very smoothly - well led and organised. Early start to Tangiers was inevitable but getting collected at 5 am was a shock to the system!

Outstanding destinations, mixed reviews. here's why: Morocco: If I had known we were traveling 2 1/2 hours by bus to the port in Tarifa, I would have stayed closer to Tarifa. 5am start and multiple stops along the way for a 9am ferry. So, you get to Tangier, greeted by a well-informed guide with good English. I think due to the nature of beggars and peddlers you are quickly whisked from place to place, restricting the time it takes to really soak it all in. Camel rides - lame, side of the road, sick looking animals. One peddler literally shoves the baby camel into you whilst thrusting the leash into your hands so that you now owe him money. The Kasbah should be so awesome, but you are assaulted by so many peddlers, it's really hard to enjoy the ride. Having just toured Seville and Grenada, Spain, the Moorish architecture was familiar, along with the rocky, curvy alleys. But the tour guide chooses the restaurant for the large group and you are, need to be, whisked through the entrance so quickly that you don't even know where you are. It's a shame, but a must-see at the same time. Excellent food. Excellent choice. I will say that. Shopping is near impossible. They escort you into upscale shops for hard-sell pitches on rugs, pots, and the like. But not as obnoxious as the street peddlers who then insult you for shopping from the rich. Next stop - Moroccan oil product hard-sell....as if we don't already get them in the US. I didn't like that, but wasn't allowed to leave. I guess, no I'm sure, one needs an escort though, so it's a necessary evil...I'm more accustomed to independent touring, but I don't recommend it here, despite the cons mentioned.
Grenada: Our tour guide reversed the itinerary and dropped us off for lunch prior to all the restaurants actually opening. Bad move. She must have known since she made it clear she's from Grenada. Alhambra is great to see, but I recommend a self-tour. It's safe and public transport door to door.

Tangiers-It is safe, but aggravating. The Camel rides, were 1 euro... but they aren't treated well. tour ends with 2 hours of in-person infomercial about rugs/fake beauty products (salesmen in labcoats lol). Free meal has meat of unknown origin. Forget your western niceties,and you'll enjoy it more.
