Full description
Take the fast ferry at the specified time, for a 50-minute crossing that will end at the Port of Tangier Ville.
You will make a short stop to take photos with the camels, before moving on to Cape Spartel, on the Atlantic Coast of Africa, at the entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar.

You will visit the Caves of Hercules, with two openings, one to land and one to sea, known as "The Map of Africa". Your trip will continue through different districts, passing by the Mohammed V Mosque, the Royal Palace, the Mendoub Palace (formerly owned by Malcolm Forbes, the multi-millionaire), etc as well as many more important sights too. Stop for a traditional lunch at a typical restaurant.

After lunch, walk down through the Medina, this mass of narrow streets and tiny squares, until you come to the Petit Socco, where you'll visit a Centre for Moroccan Handicrafts and have some free time to perhaps have a glass of Moroccan tea on a lively terrace, or have a look at the traditional shops in this area. At the previously agreed time, you will return to the port.

Better than expected

All guides were awesome and our small tour group was a good size to keep things moving... lunch was awesome, wish the camel rides were longer and felt like I was at a time share pitch for the rugs and oils they were pushing. Other than that loved the whole thing.

Good Value and Super Easy Way to See Tangier

Great way to see more than just the city but also surrounding areas and the coast. Lots of queueing for the ferry, but it is unavoidable. The guides know a lot of locals and it shows. Gave us peace of mind to have a guide in the old city, especially since we have a child. Lunch was okay but nothing special. Getting steered into a rug shop and a spice shop were classic Tangier experiences. Go along and have fun!

Lo recomiendo completamente, una experiencia inolvidable. Únicamente que se hace muy muy corto, perdimos mucho tiempo en la demostración de las alfombras, que aunque es curioso de ver, después no nos dio de disfrutar de tiempo libre para hacer nuestras compras. Por lo demás, lo volvería a hacer sin lugar a dudas
