The ferry was over an hour late leaving Tarifa. Of course, that time was missing. The trip was still great! Rachid in Tanga was a fun and extremely knowledgeable guide. He can speak 7 languages, so pretty much everyone understands him. It's still a stressful tour because everything is very tight. But still recommended. It is also good to know that everyone with a passport has to wait in line to be stamped on the ship! It is also important that you get a sticker at the port of departure by which you can be recognized. So you don't have to look for anyone. :) All in all, it's a successful trip with good food and a good impression of Morocco (you get used to the vendors in the streets). Gladly again!

Rachid was a totally great guide. Unfortunately, the ferry departure was postponed from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. In the end it started at 12 o'clock, so unfortunately we weren't in Tangier until 1 o'clock. And at 17:30 we had to be back on the ferry

We realized very quickly that the smartest thing we did on this trip was to join this group. Our experience, had we been on our own would not have had 1/10 of the impact and we would have missed out on so much of this amazing culture.

It is a great tour and Rashid was very friendly. It would be nice to have a little time to shop for souvenirs at the end.

Very nice trip. Our guide Rashid was fantastic, best guide we ever had
