This exciting full-day tour begins with a drive from the Costa del Sol to the board the high-speed ferry in Tarifa. From here, you’ll travel across the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco.
Upon arrival in Tangier, you’ll begin with a guided walking tour of this vibrant and colourful city during which you’ll visit the souk, home to vendors selling goods ranging from carpets, fruit and vegetables to exotic fragrant spices.
Explore the Medina (old town) and the Kasbah (old fortress) to discover its rich architecture. Afterwards, we will take a break to see the snake charmers and to enjoy a traditional lunch offered in a typical Moroccan restaurant.
Later on, we will be guided to the Bazaar where you will be informed about the different types of carpets as well as local handicraft. After that, the group will enjoy a bus sightseeing tour along the promenade seafront, Avenue Mohamed V, Severo Ochoa Institute, the Portuguese, American, Italian and Spanish Quarters and the Royal Palace. On the way to the Atlantic coast we will visit the Punico Roman Necropolis where you can enjoy some of the best views of the Strait of Gibraltar and see the tombs dating back to the Roman times.
After a short stop at Cape Spartel where the waters of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic meet, we will enjoy a traditional green tea with mint as we are taught about the tea rituals. We will stop at an Atlantic dune to take pictures and ride the camels (optional, not included).
