What a fabulous adventure!! Our Moroccan guide, Abdoul, created a cultural immersion in just one day. We traveled by comfortable bus to Algeciras and took the ferry to Ceutla. Where we were met by Abdoul with a second bus. He expertly guided us through the borders of Spain and Morocco. The drive down the Mediterranean coast of Morocco to Tetouan was beautiful. The driver took us into the heart of the city and we walked a few blocks to the Medina. What an experience as we were transported back in time for 100”s of years. Our group of 23 was treated to tastes of the market and a three course lunch. We had time for shopping and headed back to the return ferry. Ales from the Spanish side of the tour accompanied us, following the group to ensure that none of us were lost in the maze of streets and shops of the Medina. We highly recommend this tour.

Trip to Gibraltar was great. Bus arrived on time and guide Anna was very knowledgeable and friendly. Dolphin sightseeing cruise was amazing and we saw lots of dolphins. Crew were very helpful and knowledgeable about marine life in area. Would recommend trip to anyone

A great trip with the Dolphins. The children are delighted. It is a pity that there is not much time to visit the old town, but still great. I recommend

The boat tour was great and we were even out on the sea for over 1.5 hours. We saw 2 types of dolphins. The tour guide explained everything well.

An easy way to get to know Moroccan culture. The Medina area is definitely a destination worth visiting.
