Discover the magic of Morocco on a day trip to Tangier from Costa del Sol. Morocco lies just across the Mediterranean Sea from south Spain, but this North African country feels like a world away! Your full-day adventure includes a Berber dance performance and Moroccan lunch, a walking tour of the medina, souk and kasbah, time for shopping at a Tangier bazaar, and round-trip ferry transfers – the ultimate value for a day in Morocco.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Lunch included
Your Morocco day trip to Tangier begins with a scenic drive from Costa del Sol to Algecias or Tarifa, in the southern tip of Spain. From there, board a high-speed ferry to travel to Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar (45 to 60 minutes), where your journey to the exotic Moroccan city of Tangier will continue on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach.

Start your tour of Tangier with a panoramic sightseeing tour of the city center and continue by foot to the little souk, the medina (old quarter) and the kasbah (old fortress). Admire Morocco's rich architecture, wander around the spice markets, visit one of the local bakeries to try some tasty bread (own expense) or stop to see the snake charmer.

Next, go shopping at a typical bazaar and see many types of carpets and handicrafts. Have a traditional Moroccan lunch at a local restaurant, and feast on food like couscous, tagine and other local delicacies. During lunch, be entertained with a performance by a Berber dancer.

Continue with a short stop at Cape Spartel, where you can see the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean mix together. Then, sample traditional mint tea and learn about the mint tea rituals at a local shop. Next, visit the Cave of Hercules and stop by the white sand dunes that border the Atlantic. If you wish, you may ride a camel here (own expense)! Alternatively, enjoy free time to explore the beautiful area.

On your way back to the ferry, admire views of the Moroccan landscape. After your cross the strait, relax on the comfortable coach ride from the Spain port back to 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.

Very good trip to Morocco! The guides were very professional. We were in good hands. If you have an extra day at Costa del Sol, i can recommend this. Only thing that could be a little different is maybe a little more time on my own to shop. We were a family of 5 persons.

All in all, we had a great day in Morocco, traveling from Marbella, Spain to the city of Tanjiers by bus and a large, two story, fully-enclosed speed boat. The trip included a very interesting guided bus tour of the new section of the city, including beautiful wide avenues and lovely buildings with great views of the Atlantic and Mediterranean, beautiful gardens and fountains and a quick but inexpensive 1 Euro camel ride. The guide showed us all the different international sections--British, French, Spanish, American, Italian, etc. Each has its own schools and library, as well as a distinct character. Then we had a guided tour of the old city or Casbah, built in the 14th century. Crowded and narrow streets with bustling food markets, along with jewelry, leather, fabric and other local goods. We stopped along the way at a fine Moroccan restaurant with traditional music and food, which was included in the tour. We also had stops at a Moroccan/Berber rug store and an herbal/homeopathic store with presentations at each. Overall, the trip was well worth it, and we had a very pleasant day meeting fellow passengers and getting to know more about this cosmopolitan city and its long history. I would recommend the tour to others with these caveats: 1 the bus makes dozens of stops at hotels picking and dropping off people all along the way, 2 the rug store presentation was not very exciting and we would have preferred more time shopping on our own, and 3 be prepared to be attacked by local vendors all trying to sell the same goods--bracelets, camels, scarves, Moroccan leather purses, etc. Although many travelers skipped the herbal presentation, we actually enjoyed it. The presenter was informative and funny, prices were affordable and we were able to purchase Moroccan oil and other desired products with little or no hard selling. It was also air conditioned, and the Casbah was very hot that day.
