Booked a day trip to Ronda by Rail. Minibus collected us from our holiday apartment in Fuengirola and took us to the railway station at San Roc for the service Ronda. On the journey there was spectacular scenery to admire as well a great view of the stork colony at San Roc Station. The journey takes about 1.5 h on a modern and comfortable train. We had about 3 1/2 h free time in Ronda where are plenty of restaurants. The views down the gorge are amazing and there plenty of photo opportunities. Access to the old city is via one of the 3 bridges over the gorge - spectacular! Journey back by minibus down the mountain road to the coast highway takes about 1h. The total cost was €55/person and there was a very knowledgeable, friendly multilingual guide. Well worth the money.

We enjoyed the tour of the Kasbah by our excellent guide Mohammed and stopped in the Soux for lunch. First impression of the restaurant made me feel wary of what was to come. The first course was cold soup so we decided on a safer option and only ate the bread. Main meal was couscous with vegetables and chicken. I wasn’t going to risk eating the chicken so went for the couscous and more bread. However, my husband decided he’d try the chicken to his cost.

Everything was so well organized, we manage to see a lot and to learn a lot about Tangier. Our quide Mohammed was great, so relaxed and highely educated.
We managed to buy some nice things, had a nice lunch in colorful local restaurant and this was very nice experience.
I would reccomend this trip to everyone except to families with small children, because it is too much for kids.

We were picked up at 7am (so later than the first pickups). The coach was comfortable and air-conditioned. The two guides, one Russian and one German were knowledgeable and the German guide spoke excellent English. Everything was explained to us before we got to the port to take us to Tangier. This also went without delay and the hour or so trip across to Tangier was pleasant enough. Our guides on the Tangier side were extremely knowledgeable and a coach was awaiting our arrival. We were taken into the City and then walked around the small streets which were interesting and colourful. Lunch was the most disappointing thing about the day as the restaurant looked tired and in need of an uplift. The good was ok, but it was included within the price and we survived! We were taken to a place which sold rugs/carpets amongst other things but would have preferred to visit a "proper" souk. After this we were taken to a place which sold lotions and potions. I was drawn into making a couple of purchases but am not disappointed. There were lots of street sellers and, again, I was drawn into purchasing a scarf, which I actually like very much. My two girlfriends were more drawn and purchased leather bags! The sellers were friendly enough and once they realised you were not going to buy moved on! My favourite part of the trip was towards the end of the excursion ... driving through the Beverly Hills of Tangier and then onto the Atlantic coast which looked absolutely stunning with huge beaches and a beautiful coastline. We visited some caves of Hercules but you could also have a drink and and look at other small shops. The trip back to the Spanish mainline went without delay and we arrived back at our resort - just outside Estepona at around 7.30pm. All in all we enjoyed our day trip and would highly recommend.

Wow where to begin, well let me begin by saying I didn’t mean WOW as in a positive way I meant it as wow what did I waste my day and money on? So we started the trip at 6:20ish in the morning getting picked up by a really lovely brand new coach with a lovely driver and our Spanish equivalent of our tour guide Oovan who was a pleasant enough guy, he explained we were picking up some more customers before making our way to Tarifa port. Whilst on the coach we had to fill out our border immigration papers whilst moving which isn’t that easy but I guess it saves time prior to getting to the ferry. We bordered the ferry and again it was pleasant but all I remember off it was standing in the line for the immigration stamp on our passports and by the time I was done and managed to find an empty seat it was time to get off which was crap!

So we are now in Tangier and met by our Moroccan tour guide Mohammed who was actually a decent guide to be fair, he was informative and professional and seemed to know his stuff! We went for a drive and ended up at the cave of Hercules which was nice but it’s a cave in all fairness so nothing to boast about, we then make our way to a medina or old town where we have a quick talk on how the town was formed before making our way up to a restaurant going down a back alley and up some nice looking steps thinking yep getting hungry so I’m looking forward to this lunch... wow we ended upstairs in a cramped up room with chairs and tables cramped together and we were ordered by Basil Fawlty where we could sit, prior to this no one has decided to ask about our dietary needs neither the hotel staff booking our trip, oovan or Mohammed! We then tell the staff we are vegetarians and are given a make shift salad like they’ve never catered for vegetarians before, we’re then palmed off by some crappy vegetable soup which was nasty before being given a plate of couscous with some chick peas and 3 other vegetables and I don’t mean three different types of veg I mean one carrot one courgette and one onion! It tasted crap and I only managed about 3 bites before giving up thinking something better was coming! I got a Farley’s rusk biscuit and only one at that, to wash down with a shot of mint tea in a glass, there was some guys playing traditional music which was pleasant but we were promised belly dancing and a proper feast, the musicians then finished their set and thrust a plate for tips under our noses before basil fawlty hurried us out, we then went to some modern day carpet shop where we had a 5 minute presentation about carpets before being flogged some, before being hurried out the door! Lastly we ended up at a herbal medication room where a guy in a white coat tried to flog us some herbal medication again in a hurry saying it’s buy one get two/three items free but no items ever come free from these sellers, everything is a profit!

We then head back to the ferry where we leave Tangier and about bloody time if you ask me, I honestly think I spent too long there I’d say even a minute is more than adequate to find out if you either like it or loath it which a few of us did by the end! I was excited to see perhaps a mosque or museum and certainly how baklava is made!

We went back to Spain and believe me when I see people kiss land like in the movies I could’ve done that after leaving Tangier it was such a crap place and ok I can at least say I’ve ticked it off my places to visit but it was such a wasted journey. I would not recommend it as it wasn’t how it was described when it was sold to my wife and I and I will never go back as it’s not appealing, men followed us around trying to flog us unnecessary items of crap we will never need and you almost have to fight them away, whilst on board the ferry returning to Spain I opened my bag to get my drink and I could’ve sworn one of these fellers from the market was gonna pop out trying to sell me a wooden camel I almost wept! I did not enjoy the tour and some of what Mohammed was saying was interesting but irrelevant to me and I could’ve googled all of it! The return journey pretty much everyone had had enough and just slept off a wasted day before being dropped off to their respective hotels, believe me we are as soon as we got back in and it was a lovely feast haha.

While the bus and rides were clean and comfortable, we were completely put off by the forced, yes-herded into a room and made to sit and listen to a rug sales pitch. Should you opt to wander within the same crafts building, you were re-shepherded back into the room and told you couldn’t visit the other craft areas until the ‘demonstration’ was finished. After that we were taken to an herb vendor’s shop and again forced to sit through their sales pitch.

The redeeming parts of the trip were the first part where we were driven through the affluent areas to get to the caves of Hercules, and the open market on Thursdays.

The meal ‘provided’ was lackluster and all the drinks, freely offered and handed out (including water), were then charged to you before you were allowed to leave. Not even basic water was included in the meal.

I wouldn’t ever consider this particular trip again.

Glad we booked with this company! Aside from the disappointing trip to Tangier, touring with this company was wonderful. Americo, our guide was amazing!!! He spoke several languages and was so knowledgeable. We really enjoyed spending time with him!

This is a very reliable company, the price is very reasonable and it was on time and easy to find. The shuttle back to the airport was also easy, also my flight was leaving at 6am. The driver was in front of hotel on time and very polite. I would definitely recommend this company.

Been on the day trip to Tangiers today with my 21 year old daughter and wish that I had read previous reviews-especially Hannah’s on 31st May as it was so accurate and I don’t want to rewrite what she has said.
Morocco, from what we saw, is definitely an interesting place to visit. The fact that we were shepherded around and made to visit an over priced craft centre instead of having free time to explore was beyond me. The ‘herbal remedy’ demonstration was an engineered sales pitch that, sadly, a few members of the group fell for and spent a generic 10 Euros on olive oil and basic spices like cumin and turmeric meant to improve libido and snoring-really?!
Surely, as adults, we should be able to meet at a designated meeting point and take full responsibility for the repercussions of being late. The day trip just felt like a school trip. So disappointing as the tour could have been really good as the guides were knowledgable and helpful.
