However I'd like to see Ceuta. Seems more appealing than Tanger. Would it be an option to take the ferry to Tanger, go to Tetouan by taxi, take another taxi to Ceuta and from there the ferry back to Algeciras?

I seem to recall that most ferries to Tanger go via Tarifa (you can take a shuttle bus from Algeciras). Personally, I would prefer to stick to two locatios, Tetouan and Ceuta. There are at least 10 ferries daily costing 60€.

I also prefer the Agraciras - Ceuta - Tetouan route.

At Ceuta, which is a Spanish territory, it sounds like we will be taking a cab from the ferry port to the border (4 km), walk through the Spainish and Moroccan customs, and take another cab for 40 km to Tetouan, which supposedly costs 5 Euros per ride after a hard negotiation. I read bus is not recommended as it is slow and hot inside.

Sounds good. If we can avoid Tanger that's good for me too. Currently the direct options I found for Algeciras-Ceuta-Algeciras are following (price per person for the return trip):
07:30-08:30 / 20:00-21:30 - 67 EUR
06:00-07:00 or 08:00-09:30 / 17:30-18:30 - 60 EUR
06:00-07:00 or 08:00-09:30 / 20:00-21:30 - 60 EUR
07:50-09:00 / 19:15-20:25 - 60 EUR

To all participants: I hope to finalize the programme in a few days, and send the practical details out to those who have indicated to participate. Unfortunately there's no space anymore to receive additional persons on Day 1 (Gibraltar part).

In the mean time, I could use some help with organizing at least a bit of the Tetouan part of the journey. Anyone with a recommendation for a guide, a lunch restaurant or something else that we can do as a group? Or someone who likes to volunteer as a "guide" for this day? Just walking around aimlessly with 20 people maybe is not a good idea.

AirBerlin?

Just out of interest where are people staying on the Friday night, after Gorham's Cave but before heading to Morocco?

I stay at La Linea for both nights, and then drive to Algeciras in a rental car (3 spots left in the car!!)

La Linea as well. Staying close to the boarder so I can leave my car in the hotel on Friday and walk. Have 2 spots in my car for Algeciras if needed.

Reserved at AC Hotel La Linea, but I wanted to check back if the rates had improved in the meantime as this is rather pricey.

Seat in car would be appreciated.

I decided to stay all 3 nights in Algeciras...for my hotel award program.

I was attacked by Moroccans in Cordova in 2004, but now it seems Moroccan terrorists are wrecking a hovoc all over Europe, including Finland.

Well, we won't force you to go to Morocco...

I'm just trying to call attention to our safety matters, as the only victim in this group (I'm assuming). Even my Moroccan friend in Germany told me to be extremely careful.

I'm actually worried more about my plan where I travel by myself before and after Gibraltar. That's the parts of my trip I should scrap, if any. But I have no intention to do so :)

Hi everyone,
This is Samuel, whom some of you may remember from meetup #1 in Rotterdam. I rarely find the time to post but read your comments on an almost daily basis. We will be back this year and are very excited to hang out with the crew again! In case anyone is interested, we will be driving (our own car/2 free spots) from Barcelona (our new location) on the 7th. We will also stay at AC in La Linea (we already stayed there a few weeks ago: ok hotel/so-so neighborhood). We will then rent another car, either in Algeciras or Tetouan if someone can take us there before heading to Casablanca, making stops at the various WHS along the way. We will drive back to Barcelona on the 13th or 14th, again grabbing as many WHS as possible (btw, anyone else noticed that most of the coordinates to the rock art sites in Spain are WAY off, of usually 200m but up to 200km!?).
I also did some research for a guided tour in Tetouan but to no avail.
PS: I have narrowly escaped last week's events on Las Ramblas but refuse to worry!
