What You Can Expect

Morocco Day Trip from Malaga to Tangier

Morocco Day Trip from Malaga to Tangier

A drive from Malaga to the southern tip of Spain forms the start of this day trip to Tangier, where you’ll board a high-speed ferry for the 60-minute crossing over to Africa. Upon arrival in Tangier, you’ll board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for a sightseeing tour of the city. After, you’ll have a guided walking tour through the medina (old quarter), souk, and kasbah (old fortress). While strolling through Tangier, smell the scent of African spices as they waft on the salty breeze, and navigate the narrow alleyways of the medina past snake charmers, merchants, and bakers.

In the Tangier bazaar, chat with a man selling colorful carpets and offering small cups of tea, and enjoy a lunch of traditional couscous while watching a Berber dance. After lunch, at Cape Spartel, behold the Mediterranean Sea colliding with the massive Atlantic Ocean, and sip on cups of mint tea from dunes looking over the sea. For an additional upgrade, there’s even the chance to ride a camel.

On the return journey, enjoy views of the Moroccan countryside en route to the high-speed ferry, and again on the coach from southern Spain to the final Malaga stop.

Please note: From December to April, the schedule and itinerary of this trip are subject to change due to the ferry timetables and the Ramadan holiday.

We had a wonderful day! We were very excited that Paco was our guide we had him on an other trip and he is great lots of fun very knowledgeable. The day was very informative and we learned a lot of the poor conditions of the City of Tangier. I think it could have been cut a little short if we did not have to go the rug and oil place it was not bad we like visiting the stores but would have liked to walk around with out the sales pitches. But all and all a wonderful day. Again we loved Paco.

It's hard to describe the experience during this tour... When crossing the Strait of Gibraltar, seen the Atlantic Ocean in one side, the Mediterranean sea on the other, Spain/Europe in the back and Morocco/Africa in front of you.... It's jus amazing....The tour guide in Tangier was great!

It was a well done tour. A little rushed with everything to see in a relatively short amount of time. The tour operators and guides were great, friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth it.

If you are looking for a day trip to Morocco from Spain, book this tour! They are punctual, knowledgable, and both of our guides, Janette and Hassan, were terrific. One thing you need to be aware of (which we were) is that the boat to Morocco leaves Tarifa at noon. The morning is basically reserved for pick ups along the coast, which we understood. Once in Morocco, the tour was great. I would not call it authentic, but it does give you a flavor of Africa. Hope to get Hassan because he great, very informative. One thing I would mention to the tour company is it would be a good idea to provide water to the participants. It was a long day, and that would have really helped.
