My wife and I are taking a guided tour in Morocco (starts and ends in Tangier) for 14 days early May 2007. The tour company requests, in addition to the tour fee, a fee of $240 US per person to be given to the tour guide upon arrival in Tangier. I guess for tips and other costs associated with the tour. My question is: We will also be touring France and Spain before and don't want to carry that much USD's with us for several weeks before. Are there banks in either Gibraltar or Algeciras that can change whatever currency we have, probably Euro's to USD's the day or so before we leave Algeciras by ferry for Tangier. Any banks in Europe affiliated with Bank America, maybe, so funds can be withdrawn from our stateside account? Are USD's available in larger chunks at Gibraltar or Algeciras or ?
Thanks for any comments..
