Disembark in Tangier and commence your cultural experience with a guided tour on a spacious coach; see some of the city’s most interesting sights and then take to the streets for an immersive walking tour of the medina (old quarter), the souk (marketplace) and the Kasbah (old fortress), with a knowledgeable guide.

Next, peruse the colorful stalls of a local bazaar for bespoke souvenirs and then enjoy a traditional Moroccan lunch in a rustic restaurant while a Berber dancer performs. Continue to Cape Spartel to enjoy sweeping vistas of the Mediterranean Sea and sample a steaming cup of fresh mint tea.

Day 2: Granada Day Trip

Follow your knowledgeable guide through grand courtyards and ornate halls and delve into the rich historical heritage of Granada’s architectural symbol.  

After strolling amid the botanical beauty of the Generalife Gardens, head to central Granada and enjoy some leisurely free time to sample local Spanish specialties in a restaurant (own expense). Sated, climb aboard the coach to Malaga and relax during the return journey.

Alhambra as well as Tanger were great experiences. We had good luck with the weather, which I think contributes to the total impression of both tours. The guides did a great job on both trips, and the traveling compagnions in the two busses were nice - especially on the trip to Tanger on Christmas evening.

The tour was informative, gave us plenty of time to see the Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens. Wonderful day. However, the trip to Morocco was unsettling. The wait for the ferry was long, the walk through the town was rushed. For many in the group, it was scary with too many pushy Moroccans trying to sell things. We were made to feel that the only reason we were there was to spend money. The camel stop and snake charmer were a tourist gig. The one good thing was the meal and the restaurant music. I had thought we would see a building and learn something about the culture that didn't happen. Overall, a disappointing day though I am glad I went.

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.
