Morocco Tours from Costa del Sol
By Viator, July 2014
All the mystique of Morocco is just a short trip away from the Costa del Sol. You can be there on a short flight from Malaga, or by water on a one-hour catamaran ferry. Morocco lies just over the Mediterranean, but this exotic North African gem feels like a world away.
Experience the magic of Morocco on a day trip to Tangier from southern Spain. Begin with a scenic drive along the Costa del Sol to the port of Gibraltar, Algeciras or Tarifa (departure port depends on travel date). From here you will travel by high-speed ferry across the Straits of Gibraltar to Tangier (45 to 60 minutes), where your journey will continue by road to the exciting Moroccan city of Tangier. Your full day adventure includes lunch and return ferry transfers for ultimate value.
Your tour of Tangier leads off with a panoramic view of the city, followed by a walking tour of the Medina (old quarter) and a stop at a typical bazaar for some fabulous shopping. You'll also enjoy lunch in a traditional Moroccan restaurant, including a performance by a Berber Dancer.
Take your time and escape to the romance of Morocco on a five-day jaunt from the Costa del Sol! You'll take short panoramic tours of Tangier, Casablanca and Meknes; in-depth tours of Rabat, Marrakech and Fez; and enjoy overnight accommodation in Marrakech and Fez.
Surrounded by beautiful beaches, Rabat has a memorable blend of Islamic and European influences. Made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Hollywood, Casablanca is Morocco's largest city and economic heart. Among the most dramatic cities in Morocco, Marrakech is backed by the snow-capped High Atlas mountains. One of Morocco's most striking imperial cities, the palaces, mosques, gardens and lakes of Meknes are surrounded by a massive fortified wall.
Last but not least is Fez, the spiritual and cultural center of Morocco. Fez is the most ancient of the imperial cities and unrivaled in the splendor and beauty of its monuments and architecture.
