What people are saying about Marbella
My wife & I really enjoyed this day tour. It was fun & enlightening! We saw lots of not so great reviews so were skeptical but honestly I don't know what people expect for the amount of money paid & the time it takes to get there & back...all in all we thought it was exceptionally well run & organized. If you are looking for free time to shop & wander the city on your own this is not the tour for you - it is a fast paced organized tour with no time to spend exploring on your own. TIP: take eros for the street hawkers...they are VERY persistent but if you know this going in & keep a good attitude its over soon enough and some of them have pretty cool stuff plus it gets cheaper the closer you get to leaving...My only negative comment would be when we got back to Spain we had to wait quite awhile at the port for our bus to take us back because the bus driver had driven to many hours earlier & we had to wait out his mandatory rest period - they had cold beer so it was all good!
No issues there so I won't spend time on that. In Tangier we spent maybe 4 hours. Bus ride to the camels (you walk like 10 feet), bus ride to the old city, walk around to restaurant (food was fine), walk to carpet pitch (30 min in there), walk to medicine/Moroccan oil pitch (30 min in there), walk back to bus to take to ferry. The carpet place was annoying if you don't want one, but again it's 30 minutes. I actually found the medicine/oil pitch fun and didn't mind it. The best advice I can give is that if you want souvenirs (like magnets, postcards) buy them from the people on the street you pass walking. You won't get another chance. Have your money out and ready so you won't get left behind! The bus on the way back made us wait almost 2 hours because the driver had to rest (mandated) before he could drive again. This could have easily been solved by having 2 drivers. It's crazy they made us wait on the street for hours because they wouldn't pay another person.
The pick-up at the hotel was very good in time. Don't think you can have breakfast in the bus, because eating was not allowed. The guide was very experienced and a nice man with a lot of knowledge. We went through the Alhambra a little bit quick, because it's so big. It was tiring, also because of the heat, but in the end you have a very good image of the Alhambra. Just one thing, you won't see a lot of Granada. You just go through the old city once with the bus, in order to go directly to the Alhambra. In the end, if you don't choose for the lunch option, you have 2 hours free time in Granada, but not in the old center. So, a better name for the tour would be: full day Alhambra tour.
Honestly, It takes too much time checking passports and other documents once onboard by the Morocco authorities, but I guess there isn't another way to do it. Many people on my trip, has to wait long time to have their docs. stamped even when the ferry was at port and many left already like me. Too many persons equals too much time the inspection. On the other hand, the return was okay and they easest the necessary immigration control.
Have to admit it is not an easy task to deal with a group with four different language speaking people. Nati, Julian's guide was so good. I invite people all over the world to come and visit the Red Fort, Agra Fort and THE Taj Mahal and enjoy the creation, the art and artisans skill. Believe me they are extraordinary. I only hope we could organise our tours so efficiently and with educated proffessional guides.
