Une excursion touristique fabuleuse à la découverte de Tanger, ville d'Afrique du Nord : promenade le long de la plage de sable à travers les principales avenues de la ville nouvelle, arrêt aux grottes d'Hercules et au cap Spartel, le promontoire extrême nord du continent africain. Au retour, vous visitez le quartier fortifié de la Kasbah datant du XVIIe siècle et sa place, le grand espace circulaire ouvert du Grand Socco, un marché coloré de fruits et légumes. Vous aurez de nombreuses occasions de faire du shopping à la médina avec ses minuscules rues bordées de boutiques de tissu.
Do NOT take this tour. 4 of us booked this weeks before departing on a 3 week trip. We arrived by cruise ship at Port of Tangiers at 0830 for arranged tour of 0900. I did not receive an email with how to contact the host or any reply after 10 days for connection information. I spent 1 1/2 hours on ship phones the day before to obtain confirmation to be at port at 9:00. All other passengers were met by tour operators wearing badges and holding signs for their group. Instead, we were surrounded by shouting and aggressive men making sales pitches. Not one operator had heard of Viator. We walked 1/2 mile out of Port to another parking area where a non-English speaking driver held a paper with my name hand-written and gestured for us to get in the car. He showed no credentials, had no Viator reservation info. 20 minutes later the English speaking guide arrived and the tour began.
We drove around a lot while he talked about what Islam means, their desire for peace. Saw The Cave of Hercules, but guide had no knowledge of why it was so named or any associated myths. Walked through the filthy stinking Messa, but anticipated those conditions. Walked through the Old City. He didn't show inside any buildings, only followed him through streets. Without our guide, we each snuck peeks inside hotels and were welcomed. He took us to buy spice and perfumes from a very bizarre touristy shop and creepy salesman. There was slight of hand as my purchases were wrapped. What I came home with is not what I requested. We were super anxious about the entire experience, worst part of the entire 2 1/2 week vacation.
Fabulous tour. Our guide, Ben was prompt and informative. We would highly recommend this tour. It gave us a great snapshot of the local culture and beautiful countryside. We enjoyed walking through the Medina.
We paid extra for a private tour for 4 people. Just before the trip I received an email from JTT that I should be on the dock by 9am and look for a sign that said Mystical Tours - Condon.
My sister is in a wheelchair. We had planned on storing the wheelchair at the gangplank and having her use her cane for a minimal amount of walking tour. We had agreed she would wait in the van during the Hercules Caves.
The tour buses were far away from the dock so it was decided she would ride out, I'd take it back and join them. We had enough time. When we got to where operators were waiting Mystical Tours was a large bus with high step into it. Many many people.
One good thing about the trip, they did decide to store the chair by putting it in bus luggage.
We had to wait till after 9:15 for 4 missing people ... turns out they were at another dock and we had to go there.... actual tour start time was after 9:30am due to these delays. First stop for bathroom I spoke to the guide that this is not what I had paid for and he told me there was no way they would do a custom tour on this day.
Fine for Caves
For the camels we had to wait an extra long time cause after all others were done 1 couple changed their minds and we all had to wait for them to have their rides.
At the Casbah we were told we had to take all things from the bus because the same bus might not meet us at the other end. That meant the wheelchair had to navigate the casbah. Not planned, very rough terrain, no help from the tour guide. Amazingly sister and chair survived.
Guide required all stay with him... no stopping to look at anything ... and marched us through to his first picked place where he got a kick back The stop at the spice shop was over 30 minutes waiting for those of us whose allergies don't allow going inside. Same kickback at the next he allowed. People who stopped got in trouble with him.
Tour was supposed to include a stop for lunch sellf paid before return to boat ... but at 1:30 short of the 5 hours the others on bus had paid for he returned us to ship. No help for getting the wheelchair back out. Back in after Casbah I found people to help and paid them. At dock there was only the bus driver and me ... a 68 year old woman. I tipped him for his help.,
NEVER EVER USE JTT OR MYSTICAL TOURS. If you need handicap assist, get a taxi when you arrive in port.
i loved the tour. my wife said it was just ok. our tour leader spoke very good english and was very knowledgeable on all aspects of tangerian life and history. i only rated this tour with four stars as the tour stated we would visit the kasbah and we, unfortunately, did not.
be prepared for alot of uneven surfaces with the walking part of the tour which was more than i expected. love this city where the atlantic ocean and the mediterranean sea come together.
