We chose to travel to Morocco with Blands whilst in Gibraltar, and it is something we looked forward to before arriving! The tours travel at various times during the week, and only go if a certain number of people book, so it is important to register interest early in your holiday!
The trip overall was good - it's £80 each, which includes all transport, ferry crossing, a camel ride, lunch and tour. The trip took us to Tarifa, Spain, for the ferry and over to Tangiers, Morocco. We had a brief bus tour of the city, with commentary from a local guide, and were offered a camel ride (nothing major, just a wander around a bit of land next to a beach, but it was novel.) We were also taken to the place where the Atlantic and the Mediterranean meet (although there's not a great deal to see!).
We were then taken on a walking tour of the markets of Tangiers, before a traditional Moroccan lunch, with a band playing. Then we had a bit more of a walking tour, before being taken to a Bazar for a talk on carpet making, and a pharmacy/herbalist, for another talk.
Overall the experience was good. I wouldn't have felt comfortable travelling to Morocco on my own, and the guides are knowledgeable, and helped us through passport control etc. As an overview of the city it is a good experience, however it is a TOUR. I'm not generally a fan of organised trips, and although it could not have been organised any other way I did feel at times that I wasn't getting the chance to fully explore the areas that I would have liked to. We spent a lot of time in the Bazar, but weren't really given the opportunity to stop at shops elsewhere.
The lunch was good, but clearly rushed, with the next course being served whilst you were still eating the one before, and it was obvious that they were expecting the arrival of another tour.
Overall it was a good experience for an overview of Morocco, I probably wouldn't repeat the experience, but for anyone interested in travelling over here whilst in Gib, go for it!
