Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Costa del Sol and travel to the ferry port for your high-speed crossing of the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco. Admire sweeping ocean vistas for approximately 60 minutes and then disembark in Morocco for the journey to the exotic metropolis of Tangier.
Stop first at one of the city’s souks to see locals trade from colorful stalls of fruit, spices and vegetables. Absorb the bustling atmosphere and jostle past the crowds as you work your way to a street thronged with glittering Moroccan jewelers.
Continue to the old walled city, known as the medina, and navigate the ambient tangle of alleyways replete with shops and residences. Summon your courage to watch a snake charmer and pop into a traditional bakery to sample traditional breads and pastries at your own expense. Revitalize with a traditional Moroccan lunch in a local restaurant and feast on seasonal ingredients cooked according to ancient tradition
Sated, head to a bazaar to feast your senses on a vibrant tableau of handicrafts and carpets; browse for special souvenirs and then return to your vehicle to finish seeing the city sights from the comfort of your coach. Admire legendary landmarks like the seafront promenade, Boulevard Mohamed V, Tangier Ville Nouvelle and Severo Ochoa
If travelling in winter, return to the ferry port and during the entire journey back to Costa del Sol.
If travelling in summer, remain in Tangier for some additional time to visit the ancient Roman Necropolis and Cape Spartel. Revitalize with a refreshing mint tea and then capture photographs of the undulating sand dunes at the Cave of Hercules. Ride a camel (own expense) and then return to the port for the ferry ride back to Costa del Sol.
Awesome tour guides in Spain and Morocco. Loved the hotel pick up and included lunch. Best part of our trip.
Fantastic! we loved every minute. Our tour guide from the local tour company, Rafael was professional, caring and knowledgeable. Our guide inTangier, Samir was an amazing font of knowledge. We had a wonderful ride through the various points inside and outside the city, walk through the medina , delicious lunch and entertaining rug and spice presentations. A great day!
One of the advantages of the small group tour was that we were picked up and dropped off at our condo. Our guide spoke very good English was very knowledgeable. The tour exceeded our expectations and I'd highly recommend it. We've done a number of excursions through Viator and the service has always been good - they deliver what they advertise. The only glitch was when we had to call the call centre in Spain and confirm the tour. the operator told us we had to meet at a hotel and it took some time to convince her that our package was pick up door to door.
This is the only real way to see Tangier in a reasonable time. We were concerned that if we went alone, we would get off the ferry, get ripped off in a taxi, eat in Burger King or whatever.
The whole thing was well planned. We were staying in a villa and not at an hotel but I did my homework and found the hotel where the trip was leaving from. It was my partner and I and after a 20 minute drive a family of 5...but the family of 5 didn't show up. So we went to Tangier with our own personal guide.
On the ferry it was business class and the guide gave us some space.
When we arrived we were met by another guide with coach and driver and yes it was Tanger with the pair of us, our Spanish Guide and a Tangier Guide and 1 driver. It does not come much better than that!
Very well planned, camel ride, old town, lunch was fine, and the restaurant was clean and busy. So have no worries about your safety, about being pestered by hawkers or where you can eat.
What really helped was that we wanted to barter for some shopping and the guide kept his eye on us and if it looked like we were being pestered too much he would intervene.
Quite frankly I loved it. You might expect sand dunes and nothing else in Tangier but you will be amazed. As the ferry approaches its high rise, smart buildings. If you want to do Tangier from Costa believe me this is the way to do it!
The small group trip is excellent, service by both guides was excellent. Highly recommend this tour if you are planning a sampler of Morocco.
excellent. guides were a1 and trip to tangier was an eye opener.
Tangiers was a lovely city and the tour was well done and personable. I only wished I could've stayed longer!
The tour guides were absolutely fantastic and I would definitely recommend this excursion to others. My only complaint would be that at the very end of our time in Morocco, we were brought to a market where all of us felt very pressured to purchase either rugs, jewelry or leather goods...was just sort of a disappointing way to end our day. Other than that, nothing negative to say.
This was a good trip. Good guide, good food and interesting, but too short, an overnight with more cities would be better
Great tour..lovely place to see. Tour guides were very nice. However disappointed we did not get to see the snake charmers
