Booking With Global Journeys
Wow what a trip. Morocco was nothing like I imagined. I believe our local guide showed us the real Morocco and much more. A fascinating country and so varied. This part of the tour felt like an adventure. Using different modes of transport in this tour was a great idea, comfortable roomy bus travel, driving across the desert in 4wd drives, travelling across the Gibraltar Strait to Spain on a Tassie built ferry and the fast train rides.

The Spain part of the tour felt like a fabulous holiday. Our guide was so efficient and calm it was soothing and relaxing travelling with him. He showed us how to enjoy Spain, the food, the places and the people whilst imparting a wealth of knowledge to us. He also gave us great information about our after tour stay. The cooking sessions were brilliant but even better eating the results afterwards at our exclusive dining experiences.

I visited many places on this tour that I would never have found on my own. The unseen bonus of a tour like this is the people you meet that you never forget. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bunnik tour and would sign up for one again any day.
