I was skeptical when I saw the negative reviews but on the contrary I had an AWESOME time and I thought this trip was well worth the cost, considering they cover the transportation and meal, and they include many unique stops like the Herculus Cave and camels etc. My guides were extremely nice, and I thought the Moroccan meal was delicious. During the afternoon I found the carpet show and the pharmacy show to be entertaining, even though they are trying to sell you things. We had half an hour free time to shop at the end of the day. Obviously it was very tiring since it's a long day, but if you went by yourself or with another tour you'd still have to deal with a long bus ride, it's just part of the experience of trying to go from Spain to Morocco. As a solo traveler I wouldn't have been able to travel Tangier by myself, so I am very glad I booked this tour. I think if you go in with an open mind and REASONABLE expectations you will have a good time.
Meeting point really easy to locate & all explained well on our booking confirmation. We enjoyed the whole day very much! Our guide Maurizio was multilingual & was talking in 3 languages so everyone could understand the history of the places we visited. He was also very polite, cultural and knowledgeable. Happy to answer every question & with a smile on his face for the whole long day! We've learnt so much about Ronda & Setenil and you didn't know where the day has gone! Travel to Ronda was bit long but that's good as well as you can see beautiful Spain countryside from the coach. And Ronda... just stunning. When you visit Malaga, Ronda is your must go stop as well! We also had wine testing booked which we didn't know about so that was a nice surprise. Thank you very much to Julia Travel!
The whole day was enjoyable and stress free. We didn't want the worry of driving ourselves to Gibraltar so taking the tour was a great option. Everything ran on time. The 3 hrs of free time was plenty for a nice relaxed lunch and then we chose to take the cable car ride to the top of the rock (not included in this tour).
When we booked and pay the trip was not clear that the minibus to visit the rock is not included and we have paied 30 eur/pers more near the 65 eur/pers. It would be good to have both options in the site when you buy, such as you could choose correctly from the begining.
Very informative trip. Learned a lot of things about Gibraltar and the surrounding area. Our guide was entertaining and personable. The trip was comfortable and long. Maybe too many pick-up and drop-off points for those starting from Málaga.
