What our clients are saying about touring France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco
“Could not have asked for more!”
I had left the booking of my trip over the new year till quite late, however the communication from Global Journeys and Intrepid meant that it was all booked over the Christmas period and the trip took place. I had trouble choosing between 'Best of Morocco' and 'Morocco Uncovered' as they both offered an area that I wanted to go to. I went with 'Best of Morocco' and loved it. Many of the areas we went, we were the only tourists. We were fortunate to have not only a small group of people yet a great ...read more group that got along really well. Mustafa our driver and Khalid our tour guide could not be faulted, they really added to the enjoyment of our experience. Khalid's knowledge of such a vast array of areas was amazing, his passion for his job and his English, including his ability to have a bit of fun was fabulous. He made sure that we were his priority in all areas and his attention to detail was highlighted by all. He could not do enough for all of us. The food was great and all of the accommodation gave us something to talk about in a positive way. The guest house family were lovely and very accommodating and I loved the smaller towns we visited where we were the only tourists to be seen, playing with the children and walking through the farms. I had the most amazing time in Morocco and this being my first group tour was of concern to me. I honestly don't think it could have gone any better.
“Peregrine Highlights of Morocco Tour”
We booked with Global Journeys as they were offering a better price than Peregrine and Peregrine refused to price match. Service received from Tracey at Global Journeys was simply outstanding and I will definitely use her again for future trips. The trip highlight was definitely the desert experience... all aspects of it. The glamping, the food, the camel rides, the sunrise and sunset. Definitely would have liked an extra night there. Also enjoyed unwinding at the seaside town of Essaouira after ...read more a very hectic schedule the previous 13 days. Whilst the itinerary of this trip is good, the general level of the accommodation provided on the trip was disappointing considering Peregrine market themselves as the Intrepid premium brand. Poor internet access at some of the accommodations, no hot water for showers at one of the places (which is noted in the itinerary), dirty carpets at side of bed etc. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and overall did a good job but at times it felt like he was struggling to attend to all the needs of a group that varied in ages between 19 and 82. On that note it was frustrating having to slow down often to cater for participants who were not at the required level of fitness for the trip.
“Spain, Morocco and Portugal for Christmas with Trafalgar ”
Just completed a dream Christmas holiday in winter! The weather was perfect in Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Our booking with Global Journeys was easy peasy and the staff very quick to respond to our questions and to help us out. Everything went so smoothly.
“Tour through Spain, Portugal and Morocco”
Overall, a great experience, and all of us had a lot of fun. The tour director and driver were both excellent. There was lots to see and do, and expert guides to explain the significance of various landmarks. On the flip side, several days had only half-day activities, leaving us to fend for ourselves for the remainder of the day. The drive through the High Atlas Mountains was cancelled, ostensibly because of bad weather. On my previous Cosmos tour, they cancelled the Rhine cruise. In my opinion, ...read more if they cancel something, the customers need to get some money back. Finally, there was too much time spent with vendors trying to sell us something... Argan oil, leather goods, textiles, carpets, herbal medications, etc.
