What You Can Expect

Morocco Day Trip from Malaga to Tangier

Morocco Day Trip to Tangier

Leave central Malaga by air-conditioned coach and travel to the ferry port for Morocco. Board a high-speed ferry and relax as you sail across the Strait of Gibraltar.

After around an hour at sea, arrive in Tangier and set off on a panoramic coach tour of the modern quarter, known as the Ville Nouvelle.

Admire the promenade and tree-flanked avenues; and hear about Tangier’s 20th-century history, when it came under a mix of French, Spanish and British governance.

Next, take a walking tour of the small souk, where locals trade in foodstuffs and other goods, and then delve into the atmospheric alleyways of the medina (walled city). Stroll down the maze-like passages past tea houses, decorative doorways and shops, and stop to see the casbah (old citadel), with its whitewashed walls.

Browse the spice markets, watch a snake charmer, and visit a bakery to view and sample (own expense) some freshly made breads and pastries.

Scout out souvenirs at a bazaar selling carpets and handicrafts, and enjoy lunch at a typical Moroccan restaurant. Feast on a local classic such as slow-cooked tagine stew, and as you eat, watch a display of traditional Berber dancing.

Duly refreshed, drive to Cape Spartel, a promontory overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar. Absorb the stunning views and after a break for mint tea, continue to a beautiful, dune-fringed beach.

Take a camel ride (own expense) here, or alternatively, enjoy some free time before catching the ferry back to Spain. Your tour finishes at the start point in Malaga.


Please note: the itinerary and scheduling of this trip is subject to change between December and April according to ferry timetables and the Ramadan holiday.

This was an incredible opportunity to travel to another country and continent without the stress of planning your own activities. I was able to ride a camel, sample Moroccan cousine, but items from street vendors, tour the city, and so much more. I would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone who has a desire to see Morocco - it is a full day and is absolutely worth every penny! You get your money’s worth, for sure.

I loved this experience and got to check off another continent with Africa. Only Antarctica left to step foot on. My only piece of valuable advise is to not let the trip from Malaga fool you. My hotel was in Marabella and took a 70 Euro taxi ride to the pickup location in Malaga to only find out that the Coach could have picked me up only 400 meters from the hotel door. I only needed to call ahead to make a reservation for my pickup. As a result, the Coach took 90 minutes, one way longer than needed for my tour. Advice: CALL AHEAD for PICK UP LOCATION!

Amazing excursion across the the Mediterranean Sea to Tangier. The people were amazing, the weather was amazing and found the experience amazing!
My pictures will show how wonderful Tangier is for a visit.

A long day but well worth it. Got to see all the different quarters in Tangiers. Visited the Souks, Medina and Kasbah. Had traditional Moroccan lunch. Stopped for a camel ride. That was an experience! Both excellent guides, Frank in Spain and Hassan in Morocco both full of interesting information about the areas we went through and also the history. Had time to wander round at the end of the tour. Lots of walking. Would go again. If you are thinking of visiting Morocco/Tangier well worth taking a coach trip to introduce yourself to Africa.

One of the best Day Trips I ever went on. Family-friendly. Our tour guides Frank for the whole journey and Samir in Morocco were excellent, very caring and spoke excellent English. Early morning pick up in Malaga. About 2 hours to get to Tarifa stopping at a few points to pick up some more passengers. Nice crossing on a ferry with beautiful blue seas and skies. A few queues expected then onto the Moroccan coach. Stop off for optional camel rides I bought some souvenirs here but the souvenirs like toy camels and fridge magnets are less expensive in the old city so wait and buy them there from the locals. There is then a walk through the old city to a nice lunch followed by time in a beautiful government-run carpet / pottery shop. I like oriental rugs - got a Berber rug for a bargain price and 2 vases. The vendors in the Shop are very pleasant and expect you to bargain, there were no hard sells and they were very polite even if you don't purchase. Massive choice of quality rugs, much more selection than online or in a shop in Europe or the US, and better prices. They come down over 50 in price and the bargaining was pleasant. Then off to a local herbalist where you can get more items Moroccan tea, Argan oil etc. The locals were all nice and helpful. Then back to Spain by coach, with views of the Straits of Gibraltar, the Rock of Gibraltar and Mount Musa in Morocco. You get a journey along the Costa del Sol en route to Malaga with views of many famous beaches. A journey to remember.

The experience was great. There was a little confusion at first on where to get picked up, but we resolved that the day prior to departure. The staff were professional, fun, and very helpful. I loved the spice markets, the opportunity to buy crafts, and the camel ride. The lunch was very good, especially since they were able to provide me a vegetarian meal without notice. I would highly recommend this tour.

It turned out to be even more fascinating than we anticipated. The lunch with the musicians
were an unexpected enjoyment. We would not have missed this tour for anything. Thanks
again to the great staff.

The trip was a wonderful whirlwind. The charter bus came and picked us up at our hotel exactly on time. Passing through passport security en route was a little exhausting but to be expected. We experienced Morocco in all it's colorful glory, had a wonderful meal and made our way back to Spain. Jean Pierre did a great job for us. Would do it again.
