Full description
Explore the cosmopolitan city of Tangier on a private sightseeing tour and discover all its main attractions, from bustling markets to historic caves. You will first drive to Malabata Cape (East Tangier) for a great orientation view of the city. Look over at Europe on one side and Africa on the other.

Drive through the new city to Spartel Cape (West Tangier), considered the most northwesterly point of Africa, and where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean. The next stop will be the Caves of Hercules, inhabited since the Neolithic period. According to legend, the caves were once the home of Hercules, who created the Straits of Gibraltar with a single blow of his hand.

Discover the old face of the city, starting with the Kasbah, where artists and writers have gathered for centuries. Go to the Archaeological Museum, before walking through the colorful streets of the Medina to Mendoubia Gardens and Saint Andrews Church. Experience the electric atmosphere of the Berber market of Sidi Bouabid, where you will have some free time to shop before your drop-off.

There was a mix up with the ferry times so we arrived earlier than anticipated. Trying to contact the tour operator was extremely difficult as their phone automatically went to an answer machine with no ability to leave a message. Eventually we found each other via emails but it was very frustrating. Needed a mobile contact number to avoid this in future. That said, the tour was very good once we met up with the guide! Highly recommended.

This tour was brilliant. Muhammed the guide was friendly, knowledgeable and highly welcoming. My partner and I felt that we had seen everything Tanjier has to offer. Any question we asked was answered with a high level or knowledge and understanding. The lunch we had was in a chosen one, but the food was superb and the staff very friendly. Prior to the trip we read reviews that stated the guide didn't help with street vendors and harassment but Muhammed took care of every awkward situation, of which there were only 2. I have recommended this tour to friends and will be booking more tours with Muhammed on our next trip to Morocco. Excellent tour, excellent guide, can not speak highly enough.

We could not have had the same adventure in one day on our own.

Our guide, Abdul, was quite knowledgeable. He did, however, seem to have his own agenda even when we expressed our particular desires. We were interested in shopping in Asilah where the vendors were not as aggressive, but he clearly had relationships with the vendors in Tangiers and steered us to items of no interest to us. With this said, he was congenial and tried to please us. The driver, Sayeed, was lovely, gentle, polite, and we always felt safe. It was a marvelous experience and we thank them both!
