This is absolutely the best way to go to Tangier the first time. The tour is a bit of walking, which I liked and an overview of cultural, historic, natural sights plus some limited shopping. The shopping was pre-planned and included some things such as carpets that a day tourist might not have in mind. Still, it was a good balance between many different activities and the lunch with live traditional music was very good. The Guides were helpful and well-informed, all the transport was comfortable and on time and I felt very safe and well looked after the entire time. There was an extra guide through the narrow and lively streets of the old city in Tangier and he kept his eye on all 18 of us, when I lost my daughter in a shopping area, he knew exactly where she was. THANK YOU Said 1, Said 2 and Pepe!
A must do experience. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining.
My wife and I took this trip with our two teenage daughters and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable day courtesy of Julia Travel. It was perfect for our requirements and great value. Our guides, Jeanette and Hassan were very good, providing an informative and stress free experience for all. Staying near Estepona, we had considered driving to Tariffa ourselves and taking the ferry, but I know we would not have taken in anywhere near as much of Tangier in the limited time and it would have probably cost us more. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a flavour of Morocco in one day!
Tour was great! Frank was excellent and there were complications with my passport due to me having an Arabic name but frank sorted it!
Definitely would use again

Saw a lot in little time. Lots of fast walking through busy streets and markets on cobblestone. My sister who was having difficulty walking was able to catch up since the tour stopped often along the way.
This was the highlight of our trip, what a great day. Everything was smoothly planned out and went great. Our tour guides were super. Was traveling with teenagers and even they said it was awesome. It was like Disney world only it was real! Do it if you can.

What a great day! Olga was wonderful. We were picked up at our resort and whisked away to another world. Olga made sure our passports and paperwork were in order and that we didn't have to worry about anything. The ferry ride was fun and then Hassan took us by bus to the new sections of Tangier and to ride a camel. We left the bus and entered the casbah. We wound our way through narrow streets and archways, passing vendors of produce, meats, spices, leatherworks gold and silver. Hassan showed us a window into his world. We were taken to a delicious lunch, a rug merchant and herbalist and then wandered back to the bus, crossed the Straits of Gibraltar and returned to the world we know. Highly recommend this tour.
Paco was a great guide, and we really enjoyed the entire experience! Great way to get a small taste of Morocco!
An excellent tour. We all enjoyed our day in Tangier. Everything ran very smoothly, lunch was great and the guide, Hassan was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We usually do our day trips independently, but this is one where it is very worthwhile going on an orgsnised tour.....we managed to fit a lot in, in one day and got a real feel for the place, whilst feeling very safe and in good hands, particularly important to usas we had children with us. Thank you.
Very good trip to Morocco! The guides were very professional. We were in good hands. If you have an extra day at Costa del Sol, i can recommend this. Only thing that could be a little different is maybe a little more time on my own to shop. We were a family of 5 persons.
All in all, we had a great day in Morocco, traveling from Marbella, Spain to the city of Tanjiers by bus and a large, two story, fully-enclosed speed boat. The trip included a very interesting guided bus tour of the new section of the city, including beautiful wide avenues and lovely buildings with great views of the Atlantic and Mediterranean, beautiful gardens and fountains and a quick but inexpensive 1 Euro camel ride. The guide showed us all the different international sections--British, French, Spanish, American, Italian, etc. Each has its own schools and library, as well as a distinct character. Then we had a guided tour of the old city or Casbah, built in the 14th century. Crowded and narrow streets with bustling food markets, along with jewelry, leather, fabric and other local goods. We stopped along the way at a fine Moroccan restaurant with traditional music and food, which was included in the tour. We also had stops at a Moroccan/Berber rug store and an herbal/homeopathic store with presentations at each. Overall, the trip was well worth it, and we had a very pleasant day meeting fellow passengers and getting to know more about this cosmopolitan city and its long history. I would recommend the tour to others with these caveats: 1 the bus makes dozens of stops at hotels picking and dropping off people all along the way, 2 the rug store presentation was not very exciting and we would have preferred more time shopping on our own, and 3 be prepared to be attacked by local vendors all trying to sell the same goods--bracelets, camels, scarves, Moroccan leather purses, etc. Although many travelers skipped the herbal presentation, we actually enjoyed it. The presenter was informative and funny, prices were affordable and we were able to purchase Moroccan oil and other desired products with little or no hard selling. It was also air conditioned, and the Casbah was very hot that day.
Excellent tour! We loved everything, from the tour guide, the city,k the lunchand the shopping. We were very happy with this tour,
The tour was everything I expected. The guide and bus driver were excellent. Even though the bus broke down and we were delayed, the guide held it together and the bus driver fixed the bus!
This tour made it very easy to see the Old City without the hassles of having to make arrangements. You tour with a group of about 50 ppl. They take you through a mandatory rug and health items seminar which last about 10-15 minutes each. No one bought a rug in the group nor was there any pressure to. The lunch was enjoyable as it was in a Moroccan style restaurant and surprisingly the food was edible! Especially the dessert!
Well organized tour. It gave us a feeling of Morocco. We were traveling with a 9 year old and the tour gave us the security to bring her and enjoy our time. The meal was delicious (our picky daughter still wishes she could find the same in the USA). Thanks!
A very nice day trip! Awesome tour guide Pedro!!!!!! He made all work very well and smoothly!
We had a great time. Guides were very good. The tour company did a great job
Tour was awesome! Great guides. Definitely need to return though, as there was way too much we saw but couldn't explore.
They take you to touristy shops, nice lunch for the price hard to beat
Guide was great. I felt safe and very well taken care of. A definite must see experience
