What You Can Expect
After pickup from central Malaga in the morning, take a scenic drive to the southern tip of Spain, where you’ll then board a high-speed ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco.
Your exciting time in Tangier begins with a tour aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Your sightseeing tour is followed by a walking tour of a souk (marketplace), the medina (old quarter) and the kasbah (old fortress), allowing you to discover Morocco’s rich architecture and browse the cuisine's various spices. 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!
Continue to Cape Spartel, offering views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and then sample traditional mint tea and learn about the mint tea rituals. 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.

You’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken by coach to Granada. When you arrive, enjoy a guided tour of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Alhambra Palace, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Continue with a visit to nearby Charles V Palace and Generalife Gardens. As you explore, enjoy stunning views of the Albaicin Quarter.

A memorable excursion. Alhambra Palce and the Generalife gardens are absolutely beautiful. The bus picked us up on time and we loved our guide in the bus and also in the Alhambra. Highly recommend this tour. We had a wonderful time
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
Alhambra as well as Tanger were great experiences. We had good luck with the weather, which I think contributes to the total impression of both tours. The guides did a great job on both trips, and the traveling compagnions in the two busses were nice - especially on the trip to Tanger on Christmas evening.
A great 2 day tour that fitted perfectly into our 8 day stay in Malaga. Value for money and well organised tour.
An unforgettable experience. It would be a pity to visit Spain without seeing Alhambra. Well organized trip. Carlos, the guide of Alhambra tour, is loving the palace was a perfect host.
The trip to Morocco was great, our tour guide, Pedro, was awesome as was our Moroccan tour guide, would highly recommend this day trip!
The tour was informative, gave us plenty of time to see the Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens. Wonderful day. However, the trip to Morocco was unsettling. The wait for the ferry was long, the walk through the town was rushed. For many in the group, it was scary with too many pushy Moroccans trying to sell things. We were made to feel that the only reason we were there was to spend money. The camel stop and snake charmer were a tourist gig. The one good thing was the meal and the restaurant music. I had thought we would see a building and learn something about the culture that didn't happen. Overall, a disappointing day though I am glad I went.
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.
