What You Can Expect

Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol

Tangier, Morocco Day Trip from Costa del Sol

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.

We can't say enough about the tour guide and his knowledge of Morocco. The tour was very well organized. Very prompt arrival and departure times. Well worth it.

We loved our day in Morocco!! Paco, our guide explained how to bargain with the sellers, which was very helpful, and taught us how to have a lot of fun with the process. The buses were new and comfortable, the ferry ride was enjoyable, the bus in Morocco showed the beautiful coastline area. The meal was great and included music with smiling entertaining musicians. We were taken to an artisan coop where they had many quality items, including carpets. We then went to a medicinal herbalist who explained about herb remedies which was interesting but also, entertaining. A really packed day, would have liked maybe an hour more in the bazaar area but all in all a truely fun day! Don't miss it.

This is an excellent day trip to the former 'International' City of Tangier across the Straits of Gibraltar in Morocco full of surprise and interest.
Border formalities must be observed so you must be prepared to follow instructions, be patient and above all remember to bring your passport.
The guides are excellent and lunch is a rare treat in a fabulous Moroccan restaurant.
The local street sellers are persistent but never threatening, a polite 'no thank you' does the trick.
It's a long day, 11 hours but well worth it

Our day trip was well worth the money. The coach was comfortable and our guides were very knowledgeable. We saw so many interesting sights and a fascinating culture. The ferry ride was fast and you always felt well looked after. We had a bus tour of Tangiers then had a delicious lunch at a Moroccan restaurant with musical entertainment. There were also opportunities to see a snake charmer and take a camel ride. Our time in the market was interesting in a rug shop but no pressure. The vendors outside were a little annoying but that is how they make their living. The day is long if you start in Malaga. We were fortunate to be picked up in Marbella. This was an excellent way to see Tangiers.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

This was a great trip with lots of interesting sights, sounds and smells. The bus was clean, the guide was helpful, the ferry was fast and comfortable and the lunch was OK. Julia Travel were well organised and efficient.
We did so many things in a day it was a bit of a whirlwind, but nevertheless enjoyable and good value for money.
Although we were pestered by street sellers, this was unavoidable in the circumstances, but it was a bit annoying after a while.
The shop we visited selling pottery, leather goods, carpets and other local items was fantastic, and we weren't pressured at all into buying.
Just be aware that it's a very long day, especially if you are further east on the coast than we were in Estepona, as the extra distance means getting up really early and arriving back at your hotel very late.

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!
