Full description
Take a 5-hour grand tour of Tangier to explore the traditional and modern face of the city with an expert guide. Discover a city of many cultures from the comfort of an air-conditioned minibus. Start by visiting Tangier Port and the outskirts of the city, crossing the modern town with its large boulevards and exclusive areas of large villas, celebrity homes and palaces, including the summer residence of the Moroccan royal family. Continue to Cape Spartel at the entrance to the Straits of Gibraltar, and see the lighthouse that marks the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Stop to ride or take pictures of camels, before visiting the Caves of Hercules, inhabited since the Neolithic period. According to legend, they were once the home of Hercules, founder of Tangier, who created the Straits of Gibraltar with a single blow of his hand. Next, explore the old face of Tangier, and walk through the historic Kasbah, home to the Dar-el-Makhzen (Sultanate Palace) and Museum of Moroccan Arts and Antiquities in the former Sultan’s apartments. Continue to the maze-like Medina, where tanners work on leather goods and artisans make handicrafts from wood and silver. Visit the Archaeological Museum or the American Legation, the first American public property outside of the United States. Admire the Parc de la Mendoubia (also known as the Grand Socco) where Moroccan independence was fermented, and vendors sell a variety of second-hand goods. Explore the colorful streets at leisure, before driving back to the port at the end of your tour.

A wonderful day with our guide Rachid and his driver Houssine! Thank you for his explanations, his culture and his kindness, we had a great day thanks to Rachid who made us discover all the corners of Tangier; even my 8 year old daughter loved her day and the museum visits! I recommend Rachid as a guide 100%

Ali was our tour guide and he was amazing! Kind, patient, extremely knowledgeable, allowed us to take our time learning the history and understanding Tangier. Everywhere we went people treated him with respect and were friendly. He seemed to know many folks along the way and it was obvious they held him in high regard as we did. He was warm and friendly, he took pictures of us, showed us a wide variety of things and made sure we had an excellent tour. Ahmed was our driver and he was a great! Safe, smooth, kind and accommodating. He was friendly and calm. Can’t say enough about these two guides. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you’re lucky enough to have them.

Nice way to get to know Tangier

Our guide Ahmed was pleasant and attentive; We went to Espartel and the caves of Hercules, and then we visited the Kashba and the Medina, he offered to take all the photos we wanted. However the circuit does not last 6 hours but 4, which although they are sufficient for the visit, should be corrected in the description. In addition, the last hour was to visit stores that the guide took us to (we saw three: jewelry and carpets, argan oil and leather products). It became excessive. We ate at the restaurant where the guide took us but it is not very worth it, it is very touristy (first when it takes you to see it it gives a good impression because it is nice it has live music, but the food is a bit bluf) and there are many Other better options in the city. In general the tour is recommended but being aware that it lasts less than announced and trying to shorten visits to stores.
