Full description

Discover Moroccan culture and flavors on this day trip from Málaga and Costa del Sol. Visit the traditional Moroccan city of Tetouan, cross the Strait of Gibraltar by ferry, and see the Royal Palace or Khalifa Palace, the Archaeological Museum, and the Center of Modern Art.

Meet your guide at the pickup point in Malaga and hop on the bus to Algeciras. During the trip, journey through Malaga and along the Costa del Sol while the guide tells you anecdotes and curiosities about Morocco. Arrive at Algeciras to board an express ferry.

Sail for 60 minutes to Ceuta across the strait. Once in Ceuta, set foot on Moroccan soil and enjoy a panoramic tour of the city of Ceuta. Drive by the Royal Walls and the Moat of San Felipe. Take a scenic drive from Ceuta to Tetouan which lasts about half an hour.

Arrive in Tetouan, take a pleasant walk with a local guide to see the most iconic areas of the city. In Hassan II Square you'll stop outside the Royal Palace or Khalifa Palace, the Archaeological Museum, and the Center of Modern Art.

Stroll through the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter or Mellah and see the Bengualid synagogue. The souk of Tetouan is a real journey through time that will allow you to get to know the work of its craftsmen.

Continue through the Medina of Tetouan and be surrounded by the white walls and green doors of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stop for lunch at a typical Moroccan restaurant. Listen to live music while savoring cous cous and Arabic pastries.

After lunch, stroll through the shopping area of Tetouan and visit some establishments for shopping and a typical Moroccan Herbalist with natural products to discover all the benefits of the properties of Argan Oil.

It is a very nice activity. But the day is very long. Leave at 6:45 a.m. and return at 1 a.m. the next day. A great life experience. We see another way of life. But I found the visit to the carpet store too long and we didn't have time to shop for souvenirs. The negative point of the activity

A unique experience as we travelled to Morocco for the day. I would recommend this trip. It submerged us into the culture and history of the medina and gave us a glimpse into what life is like there. My 10 year old loved it. It was one of the highlights of our holiday. The guides 35 years experience shone through with his expertise in knowledge history and humour along the way. 5

Good trip with good guides. Will be a long day but late lunch. Should you need to drink and eat during the journey, as well as information and time for toilet visits and food. Passport control both in and out takes a lot of time, but apart from that a great trip.
