Start the tour at the port or any other place of your choice. For the first 1.5 hours, you will take a panoramic tour through different areas of the new Tangier, showing you the various sections of different communities that lived in the city during the international administration (1923-1956).
Next, drive through residential sections with their hundreds of luxurious residences and palaces, and end up at Spartel Cape, a meeting point of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
You will continue to the Caves of Hercules for a visit. Then drive along the Atlantic Coast for 45 minutes to get to the beautiful fishing town of Asilah, where you will enjoy an hour-long walking tour in the ancient casbah built by the Portuguese in the 15th century.
