What You Can Expect

Morocco Day Trip from Malaga to Tangier

Morocco Day Trip from Malaga to Tangier

Your day trip to Tangier begins with a scenic drive from Malaga to the southern tip of Spain. Then board a high-speed ferry to travel across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco (45 to 60 minutes), where your journey will continue to the exciting Moroccan city of Tangier on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach.

Your tour of Tangier starts with a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city, followed by a walking tour of the little souk, the medina (old quarter) and the kasbah (old fortress). Discover Morocco’s rich architecture, browse the spice markets, stop to see the snake charmer and visit one of the local bakeries to try some tasty bread (own expense).

Then enjoy shopping at a typical bazaar, where you’ll see many types of carpets and handicrafts. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, and feast on traditional Moroccan food like couscous, tagine and other local delicacies. Be entertained with a performance by a Berber dancer.

After lunch, make a short stop at Cape Spartel, where you can see the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea mix together, and then enjoy a sample of traditional mint tea and learn about the mint tea rituals. Next, stop by the white sand dunes that border the Atlantic. Here you have the option to ride a camel (own expense)! Alternatively, enjoy free time to explore the beautiful area.

On your way back to the ferry, take in views of the Moroccan landscape, and then relax on the comfortable coach ride from the Spain port back to Malaga.

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 November 2015

Absolutely loved this tour! I felt like we got to see so much of Tangier and were able to enjoy the culture- all while feeling extremely safe. It was a long day so I recommend bringing snacks and lots of water! We were picked up in Malaga and we ended up being in the bus about 1.5 longer there and back so keep that in mind if you're leaving from Malaga. The tour guides were great, and the sights were beautiful. Would definitely recommend this trip to a friend.

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

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.
