Stop to see a snake charmer and visit one of the local bakeries to try some tasty bread (own expense).
Then, shop at a local bazaar full of carpets and handicrafts. At a nearby restaurant, enjoy a lunch of traditional Moroccan food like couscous. You’ll then enjoy a live performance by a Berber dancer!

Then, visit the Cave of Hercules and stop by white sand dunes, where you can ride a camel (own expense) or enjoy free time to explore the beautiful area.
On your way back to the ferry, take in views of the Moroccan landscape and then head by coach from the port to your pre-booked Malaga hotel for an overnight stay.

The tour and tour guide to Grenada were both outstanding. We had a great time, saw a lot, learned a lot and would do it again. Unfortunately, our trip to Morocco was canceled 3 times due to unfavorable weather on the Gibraltar Strait. We are looking forward to that tour sometime in the future. For both cases, the primary contact in Spain, Julia tours provided outstanding service.

excellent value for the 2 trips. Both went very smoothly - well led and organised. Early start to Tangiers was inevitable but getting collected at 5 am was a shock to the system!
