Discover the magic of Morocco on this full-day trip from Malaga to Tangier. After sailing across the Strait of Gibraltar, enjoy a coach tour around the tree-lined boulevards of modern Tangier, Morocco’s northern port city. Then, savor the sights and sounds of North Africa on a walking tour of the old ‘medina’ (walled city). Visit souks, scout for souvenirs at a bazaar, see the ‘casbah (citadel), enjoy lunch at a traditional restaurant and more. With round-trip ferry transfers included, this is a great-value day out from Malaga to Morocco.
  • Full-day tour to Tangier, Morocco, from Malaga
  • Enjoy views of the Mediterranean Sea on a ferry ride across the Strait of Gibraltar
  • Take a walking tour of the medina
  • Go shopping in Tangier's local bazaar
  • Enjoy a traditional Moroccan lunch of couscous or tagine
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.

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.

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).

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

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”.

Poorly organized. I am sure they are getting kick backs at all the stores and restaurants that they make you go into as part of the tour. Do not ask the tour guide for any help, he will not. Remember: these are his people. He owes you nothing, you will not be back but the guys on the street and the store owners, he sees and talks to them everyday. He does not have your back. The tour could have been so much better and stress free if they did a little planning. Maybe that is part of there deal, keep you confused and off guard and you need them.

This was NOTHING like any other experience I've had in Morocco. It was horrible. There was no beauty in this city, in this experience, in this tour. I feel like I wasted a day on my overseas vacation, but more importantly, Tangier was NOTHING like other Moroccan cities I have visited. There was nothing NICE, nor beautiful. It was an awful city with extremely awful, rude people. Other cities in Morocco were beautiful with beautiful people. This city is just UGLY and I will never visit again. Ever.
