Morocco tour was a disaster as Tour...
Bhadrayu T, Oct 2018
Morocco tour was a disaster as Tour guide Abdul will give tour is Spanish first for almost 30-40 minutes and all English speaking tourist passengers will wait and wait for English explanation, Abdul will take his own time to narrate in Spanish, when he will start in English all landmarks are gone and we all will have no clue what he is talking, and English will be done in 5-10 minutes. Even fellow passengers who could speak both Spanish and English told as he was not being fair. Viator should give reasonable credit back to each passengers whose all money went to drain for going thousands of miles away from home to experience Morocco culture and country , spent money for tour but no knowledge what we saw.

Too many hours in the road.
Eduardo_T, Jul 2018
1650kms in four days, means 10+hours each day in the road. Four nights, paid for 5* hotels, two of the nights were the same hotel than for who paid less. Both pick up and return took three hours as had to pick up/drop in 15 hotels in different cities!!!!

micheal l, Oct 2017
We really enjoyed this trip. However, it would not have been possible without the efforts of our tour guide, Soussi. He did a fantastic job in handling every question we had and addressing all of our needs. We were a little concerned at the start of this tour, as we recently had discovered some bad reviews regarding your hotels on this tour, however Soussi handled all of these and many more issues. He also is very competent with foreign languages.

ChrisL, Jun 2017
This tour has a deceptive description and some parts of just downright lies. The tour is 5 days, but you will be in a bus for 3 and half days of it. No joke. The first and fifth days are 13 hours of travel each. The 3rd day is 12 hours. Day 2 is 5 hours. Did you want to see Casablanca? Well if your idea of seeing Casablanca is arriving in the middle of the night, eating a hotel dinner, and then leaving at 8 am the next day, then this is the tour for you. Do you want to see Fez? Well this tour thinks the best way to show you is to take you to five sales pitches in a row and then bus you back to the hotel for lunch at 4 PM...lunch at 4 PM. Let that sink in. Multiple sales pitches are great when you are being starved. 10/10 would not do this tour again. Morocco is a beautiful country and I can't wait to go back, but definitely not with this tour. They lied with the return time. The travel voucher says 6. When we left they told us 7:30. We actually arrived at 8:15. Many people in our group had to book new trains/flights/hotels etc. Yet, the tour company would never even apologize.

Richard F, Sep 2016
We were so glad to spend 5 days in Morocco. The trip was very well organized. We paid extra for a nicer hotel but were confused as the entire group stayed in the same hotels during the entire trip. Hotels were not as high a standard as we've seen on other trips. One was so hot that everyone was complaining. The trip was supposed to be in Spanish and English but the guide translated only about 1/3 of what he said to English. Other than that he was fantastic. The local guides are great and very informative. When they take you shopping, you must act uninterested and ready to leave. We bought a carpet and paid less than 1/2 of their asking price. Don't get ripped off.

SooHwang_N, Jun 2016
Too much walking trips through narrow lanes in the old town. Leg pain not suitable for older people. Very good tour guides. Need more toilet stops in the beginning of trip and please advice to bring along snacks and drinks, cause is a long bus ride on the 1st and 2nd day.

Jose R S, Apr 2016
Overall, the tour was good. However, it can be improved. First off, the tour guide was lacking in his interaction with the group. He did not assist with the smooth check in and check out from the hotels and we had to do everything from filling out forms. The last two hotels were not good as they were not as luxurious as the first ones. Also there was no variety in the breakfast menu. He did not keep the group energized. He limited himself to inform about the area and the some history about as we approached the towns but there was no interaction while we were on the road which was very long sitting on the bus. However, he kind and noble. I think that we spent more time on the road than on the actual sightseeing itself.

FREDRIC K, Mar 2016
Everything was fine except too little time in Marakesh old town. This is the main part of the tour and all we got was 30 min! Also I will NEVER attend anymore tour sales pitches. We had 4 and they were hard sells. I pay for this time and its not what I want to be doing on MY tour. If tis practice is not ended or I am given an option to not participate, I will not book another tour. This was the time that should have been devoted to Marakesh....not listening to some dude try and sell me herbs and oils or rugs...or the leather place etc

Gabor V, Nov 2015
The tour was very much as described. No one should be surprised at the lengthy bus rides since most reviews mention them but there is really no other way to see Marrakech and Fes which to me were the highlights of the tour. We were fortunate to have an excellent guide, Karem, and a very capable bus driver, Mustafa. They both contributed to a very smooth and enjoyable tour. The standard hotels were more than adequate for us but most people chose the higher end hotels. The food at the hotels was plentiful but ordinary. We chose to go to the first dinner and show in Marrakech and it was worth it just because of it's size and grandeur. We heard that the second dinner and show were OK but on a smaller scale. Overall, we very much enjoyed the tour and recommend it. Part of our pleasure was that we went on November 13th and it was not crowded neither in the bus nor at the various sites.

Cynthia R, Sep 2014
This is a great tour to get a real feel for Morocco. However as previous reviewers have mentioned, you do spend quite a bit of time on the bus so be warned as you cover a lot of miles. I read many of the reviews and these were very helpful to understand this tour. My tips are: bring food and drink for the first day because it's a very long stretch until lunchtime. I came prepared with a sandwich, water and cereal bars and that really helped. Lunch and dinner on the tour tend to be much later than I would normally eat (2pm and 9pm respectively on most days). You need to pay for the optional dinners in cash (in any currency) but we thought we could pay by card so had to re-look at our budget for other things. The dinners were worth it. The food was excellent and the shows entertaining. Both dinners were very different and reflect different aspects of Moroccan culture. Our guide Nadil was great and we also had good local guides but we were mainly listening to him in Spanish as it was stronger than his English. We paid for the Superior hotels (4 star) and this was definitely worth it. The hotel in Casablanca was great and the food excellent but the drinks were expensive and the watery orange juice not worth the 5 euro it cost, especially as we had a fresh OJ at lunch which was fabulous and much cheaper! The second hotel in Marrakech was also very nice but the food selection was nowhere near as good as the first. The third hotel in Fez was older and had lots of character but was a bit creaky and our AC didn't work. No one looked at it despite us asking. There are pools in all these hotels. Be prepared for the price bargaining you need to do everywhere in the markets. I learned by the end that if you are interested in something start your offer with less than half the price because you can often get it for half the original price quoted to you or a bit more. However be prepared to walk away as they often come running after you! Overall an amazing experience!
Great to see so much but be prepared...

Great to see so much but be prepared to sit in a bus for hours after hours!!!! Never got to visit a mosque because we were always pressed for time but it all worked out just fine.

Shankar M, Jan 2014
We were picked up from hotel A/C Malaga Palacios right on time and then bused to Tarifa. The journey took over 2 hrs as we picked up passengers enroute in costa del sol. The ferry left at 11:30 am and we were in Tangier in 45 min's. Morocco is an hour ahead as they follow GMT. We were met by our guide Nabil and driver Arafat. We were 19 tourists on the bus from different countries. We drove directly to Rabat with lunch at Larache. The only issue is that the day becomes very long and you might do well to bring some snacks and water with you. Then we drove to Casablanca for the night stay. Early next morning, we got a whirlwind tour of Casablanca and then drove to Marrakech. I would suggest that Casablanca can be dropped from the tour. Lunch was at the hotel which was very late. We did a evening tour of the city and saw the lost tombs and the medina. The visit to the spice market was a total waste. We were hurried by the local guides and would have loved to spend more time watching the snake charmers and other vendors. That night went to the optional show (chez Ali ), it was raining and the arena was not well lit. Food was excellent and our guide ensured vegetarian options were available for those who wanted. The show with Arabian horses was good. Next morning was back on the road to Meknes and Fez. Long day on the road with a panoramic tour of Meknes. We were glad to rest that night in Fez. Next morning was tour of the Medina at. Fez with local guides( Kamal) for English group. The guide was very knowledgeable but was steering us towards stores. It became more of a shopping expedition. This tour would have been better if we could have tasted local food at the medina instead we were bused back to the hotel for lunch. That night we attended the optional dinner and show with belly dancers. This was less crowded and there was more audience participation. Food was great and once again, our guide ensured vegetarian food was made available. Last day was very long.
They could make this tour much...
Paula_M, Dec 2013
They could make this tour much better with some small changes. I felt like we spent a lot of time traveling and missed the essence. For example, we spent only about hour or so in Casablanca. We were taken to the outside of a really spectacular mosque, but there was no time to go inside. Then we had a short stroll along the beach area. In Marrakesh, we had a local guide who was useless. We were taken to the souk but he guided us to a shop selling creams, perfumes, spices etc, and we spent over an hour there. No time to see/shop for anything else. The worst was Fez. The local guide was knowledgeable. But, in addition to walking through the medieval city all we did was visit 4 overpriced stores. It would have been so nice to have some free time to shop at stores of our own choosing. It looks like the guides make money from commissions from certain stores, so that is where they ensure you spend your time. And the meals at the restaurants left a lot to be desired. Spaghetti and the same soup. No choice at all, and no Moroccan food.
This was my first trip to Morocco...
Roberth R, Nov 2013
This was my first trip to Morocco and I was very pleased with the service. I was staying at a hostel near the Alameda Principal and the pickup location for this tour was easy to find as it was within walking distance of the Alameda. (A good focal point to be near for a lot in Malaga, btw.) Immaculada was a great "pickup liason" and explained everything we would need to know before we even reached the port, including the fact that passport control for Morocco was on the ferry itself. Karim was a most wonderful guide. I am bilingual Spanish/English so I would switch constantly between the Spanish-speaking half and English-speaking half of our group and enjoyed everything thoroughly. Karim didn't miss a beat and made sure everyone made it out of the souk OK. Currency exchange is at the ferry terminal, all the meals were great (especially at Chez Ali) and, on long drives between cities, rest stops are taken for one to relieve oneself and refuel thoroughly. Definitely recommend this tour!

Pamela E F, Oct 2013
The 5 day tours does require quite a bit of travel to cover the mileage, but there were a couple of days we went 8 hours before we had a meal break. Maybe a heads up would be good so people can prepare by bringing snacks. We didn't know there would be no meal break until 3 o'clock on the first day, and we were the first to be picked up at 7 am. The hotel's restaurant (AC Marriott) didn't open until 7:30, so we didn't eat for some time. If either of us were diabetic, this would have been problematic. We also had some difficulty understanding our guide due to the bus audio system and not knowing when our guide switched to English. Maybe if he announced the language before starting, we'd have recognized when he'd start. Despite, these mild complaints, we did enjoy the tour.

Wendy_G, Sep 2013
I enjoyed visiting all the towns. Fez and marrakesh were my favorites. I was not aware that the distances between towns was so huge. Each day we spent a huge proportion of time on the bus. Our guide gave the barest amount of information. He was lazy and slept on bus. The hotels in three star were fairly ordinary, the best one being in fez. Many Canadians and Americans and Australians were bitterly disappointed in the time spent on the bus. I was not as critical because i felt it was a budget tour, and it was certainly only that. One day we went six hours without a toilet stop. We had to instruct the driver we wanted to stop at gas stations, to buy drinks and use the toilets. We did not see anything in Casablanca, tangiers, and meknes. The ferry is good but the access with heavy suitcases is bad, many steps to reach boat. Huge queues to have passport looked at on boat, going into morocco. Not told to bring some food with us onto ferry. Other tour operators had the hotel make up picnic packages, because we left without breakfast that day.

Wendy_G, Sep 2013
Local tour operator is not doing the right thing. The bus was full to capacity and this is not good for five hr coach trips.. I preferred to sit at the back of the bus because more space, but the heat from the engines was enormous. More than ten degrees higher than the rest of the bus, and could not hear audio system. Guide spoke more in Spanish than English, because he was better at that language. The hotel in Casablanca was awful. They did get better in marrakech and fez. I paid three star and apparently the last two hotels were better than the four star ones. The evening show in Marrakech was awesome. Expensive but much better than expected. Even the food was good and wine and beer included. Overall i had a great time, but a lot of our group were seriously disappointed. I knew i had pd budget and didnt have high expectations. Glad i did it. Noddy

Bernadette A, Jul 2013
This was a great tour, which could be significantly improved by providing Moroccian food options on the included meals, rather than very poor western style food (our first lunch in Morocco - extremely disappointing!)
