What You Can Expect

Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Your Morocco day trip to Tangier begins with a scenic drive from Costa del Sol to Algecias or Tarifa, in the southern tip of Spain. From there, board a high-speed ferry to travel to Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar (45 to 60 minutes), where your journey to the exotic Moroccan city of Tangier will continue on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach.

Start your tour of Tangier with a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city center and continue by foot to the little souk, the medina (old quarter) and the kasbah (old fortress). Admire Morocco's rich architecture, wander around the spice markets, visit one of the local bakeries to try some tasty bread (own expense) or stop to see the snake charmer.

Next, go shopping at a typical bazaar and see many types of carpets and handicrafts. Have a traditional Moroccan lunch at a local restaurant, and feast on food like couscous, tagine and other local delicacies. During lunch, be entertained with a performance by a Berber dancer.

Continue with a short stop at Cape Spartel, where you can see the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean mix together. Then, sample traditional mint tea and learn about the mint tea rituals at a local shop. Next, visit the Cave of Hercules and stop by the white sand dunes that border the Atlantic. If you wish, you may ride a camel here (own expense)! Alternatively, enjoy free time to explore the beautiful area.

On your way back to the ferry, admire views of the Moroccan landscape. After your cross the strait, relax on the comfortable coach ride from the Spain port back to Costa del Sol.

Please note: The itinerary and schedule of this trip are subject to change from December to April due to ferry's timetables and the Ramadan holiday.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

I loved this day trip to Tangier. We completed 2 slips for the crossing, Pedro our Spanish guide, took these and our passports and we just glided through border patrol. The crossing went smoothly from Tarifa to Tangier.
Once in Tangier we were introduced to Hassan our Morroccan guide. We did a tour of the Kasbah, had a meal and then went to a handicrafts shop where I bought a rug; which I got at a good price after a bit of bartering. We visited the caves of Hercules, so named by an ancient Greek visitor for being the point where Europe and Africa were separated by Hercules. I fogot to mention the snake charmer we met along the way.

EXCELLENT!
We were on our honeymoon and Bordeaux was the first stop. The bicycle wine tour was so much fun. My new husband and I are just "ride around the neighborhood" kind of bike riders. I was nervous that I wouldn't keep up but the ride was perfect. We rode along very safe paths and roadsides in picturesque countryside.
The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She obviously loves her job. The lunch was tasty with choices of fruits, cheeses, meats and pastas. Oh, and 3 bottles of wine. good thing there were 9 of us.
I only had to walk my bike one time on a steep portion of road. We had lots of photo ops as well.
I would recommend this tour to anyone with average to above average physical abilities.


LOVED IT!
