Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 according to ferry timetables, weather conditions, and the Ramadan holiday.

Excellent day trip!
, Jun 2019
A long day but really good for value, only the meeting point is a bit confusing in the early morning.
Don't take this tour from Málaga
, May 2019
The bus (without a bathroom) picked us up in Málaga at 0530. We returned to our pick up point after 9pm. The excessive travel time was due to hotel pick up and drop off along the way and about a half hour wait for the bus to arrive at the ferry dock in Spain for the return trip. The meal provided was barely adequate. The beverage costs were over priced. The walking tour through the Kasba and the Suk was a big sales pitch. The guides were difficult to understand, partly due to the sound systems and partly due to pronunciation issues. Pay the extra money for a private tour. Stay in lodging closer to the ferry terminal or Gibraltar. I booked a trip that included Hercules Cave. The tour didn't go to the cave ... It is 2 days after the trip, and I still don't have the partial refund I requested from Viator.
Day trip to Morocco
, Dec 2018
So the tour bus was very comfortable, ferry to Morocvo perfect. Here is the downside. We were told to meet at a pickup site in Malaga. We did and from there make numerous stops at hotels to pick up other passengers. We weren't the Bus 3 hours each way! The tour guide (Hassam)in Morrocco brought us to places that were preselected and gave us lengthy sales pitches. There were glorious markets that we were not able to stop and view. Feel like he is paid to bring us only to certain vendors. Length of day was from 530am - 915. Total time in Morroco 5 hours spent at designated places. Would have liked yo know that we could be picked up at our hotel. Recommend with reservations.
Cancelled Ferry
, Nov 2018
We were actually not able to even go to Tangier as our ferry was cancelled due to choppy waters and high winds. Wasted 6 hours driving to and from Tarifa. The tour guide did make a stop on the way back at a lookout point near the Strait of Gibraltar and I was issued a full refund (though had to initiate the process myself).
Spain to Africa
, Nov 2018
Trip was cancelled due to the weather. Very windy with rain. We 7 were picked up as promised and in nice bus travelled to the port. At the port the authorities informed us of the cancellation.
Not enough info
, Oct 2018
We had to be at the pick up sight at 5:30am but we were not told we would spend the next hour and a half picking up other people. When we arrived in Morocco we got a tour bus with 37 other people. The guide Mohammad was very good but he translated in 3 languages. By the time he got back to English it was too late to ask a question. When we completed the bus tour we began the walking tour with lunch. Nice clean authentic restaurant. The shopping consisted of 1 rug shop and 1 pharmacy that they said would be a spice market. It would have been impossible to shop with that many people but very disappointing. Enrique was on the bus with us and served as our “Shepard”. He was very good. I wouldn’t recommend this tour unless you prefer large groups
Travel disaster for short Moroccan fun

Three hours bus ride to port then stood in line 1 hour to board and 2 hours stood on boat in customs line. Morocco was fun but rushed and sales orchestrated by tour. No free time to buy in bazar and 4-5 hours ride home with bus breakdown. Exhausted!!!!
There Has to be a Better Way to GO!

This was the Worst group trip we ever took. 45 people, no tour guide on the 2.5 hr trip there, just a woman clerk taking passport info. The distance should have taken only one hour, the rest-1.5 hrs,,,,,, was 8 or 9 detours to pick up people at hotels up and down the coast. We spent hours standing in lines and were herded into sales promotions in the kasbah with no choice, no way to escape. Missed the boat back because of the sales hack and had to stand for another hour and a half for the next one. Awful . Save yourself and run if they say “Julia Travel”.
