Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Costa del Sol and relax during the scenic drive to the southern tip of Spain by air-conditioned coach. Climb aboard a high-speed ferry and cruise across the Strait of Gibraltar to the alluring deserts of Morocco; on arrival, take a seat in a spacious vehicle for the direct journey to Tangier.
Commence your tour of Tangier with panoramic sightseeing of the city center and then stroll to impressive landmarks like the medina (old quarter), the kasbah (old fortress) and the small souk. Inhale the rich scent of roasting spices, admire the diverse architectural tableau and summon your courage to edge closer to a snake charmer as you explore the vibrant city of Tangier.
Next, head to a traditional bazaar to browse colorful stalls replete with carpets and handicrafts and then pleasure your palate with a traditional Moroccan lunch at a local restaurant. While feasting on cous cous and tagine, watch an entertaining Berber performance for a wonderful cultural experience.
Head next to Cape Spartel to see the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean collide, and then learn about traditional tea rituals at a local tea shop while sipping steaming mint tea. See, too, the undulating sand dunes at the Cave of Hercules and opt to ride a camel for an unforgettable experience (own expense).
Return to the ferry port after an enriching day in Tangier and relax during the journey back to the original departure point in Costa del Sol.
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.
This is absolutely the best way to go to Tangier the first time. The tour is a bit of walking, which I liked and an overview of cultural, historic, natural sights plus some limited shopping. The shopping was pre-planned and included some things such as carpets that a day tourist might not have in mind. Still, it was a good balance between many different activities and the lunch with live traditional music was very good. The Guides were helpful and well-informed, all the transport was comfortable and on time and I felt very safe and well looked after the entire time. There was an extra guide through the narrow and lively streets of the old city in Tangier and he kept his eye on all 18 of us, when I lost my daughter in a shopping area, he knew exactly where she was. THANK YOU Said 1, Said 2 and Pepe!
A must do experience. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining.

My wife and I took this trip with our two teenage daughters and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable day courtesy of Julia Travel. It was perfect for our requirements and great value. Our guides, Jeanette and Hassan were very good, providing an informative and stress free experience for all. Staying near Estepona, we had considered driving to Tariffa ourselves and taking the ferry, but I know we would not have taken in anywhere near as much of Tangier in the limited time and it would have probably cost us more. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a flavour of Morocco in one day!
Tour was great! Frank was excellent and there were complications with my passport due to me having an Arabic name but frank sorted it!
Definitely would use again

Saw a lot in little time. Lots of fast walking through busy streets and markets on cobblestone. My sister who was having difficulty walking was able to catch up since the tour stopped often along the way.
This was the highlight of our trip, what a great day. Everything was smoothly planned out and went great. Our tour guides were super. Was traveling with teenagers and even they said it was awesome. It was like Disney world only it was real! Do it if you can.
Excellent tour with great guides.

What a great day! Olga was wonderful. We were picked up at our resort and whisked away to another world. Olga made sure our passports and paperwork were in order and that we didn't have to worry about anything. The ferry ride was fun and then Hassan took us by bus to the new sections of Tangier and to ride a camel. We left the bus and entered the casbah. We wound our way through narrow streets and archways, passing vendors of produce, meats, spices, leatherworks gold and silver. Hassan showed us a window into his world. We were taken to a delicious lunch, a rug merchant and herbalist and then wandered back to the bus, crossed the Straits of Gibraltar and returned to the world we know. Highly recommend this tour.
Paco was a great guide, and we really enjoyed the entire experience! Great way to get a small taste of Morocco!
