Itinerary :

Upon arrival, I will meet and greet you at the port of Tangier before taking you for an interesting sightseeing tour around Tangier with and air-conditioned MPV.

Meet your Tangier Private Guide whose outstanding passion of the city is remarkable and always eager to meticulously share the real Tangier with visitors.

This full day tour let you discover the local culture and unique style of life, and help unveil the mystery of Tangier.

You will drive through the Mohamed V avenue to initially form an idea about western architectures because Tangier, unlike the rest of Moroccan cities, was designated as an international zone and therefore ruled by eight Western countries. Drive through French, Belgium, Dutch, Spanish or Iberian districts to the California district where the richest Moroccans and foreigners live with its fancy villas, mansions and places including the governor’s house, the Royal residence and much more.

Arrive at one of the focal points of Tangier, the Spartel Cape which is the most North Western point of mainland Africa and where it is believed both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic seas meet. The lighthouse was built in 1864 after four years of hard work and negotiations among representatives of nine European powers, USA and the Moroccan government. The lighthouse is still powerfully standing to reveal historical periods of political turbulence; however, it has been turned nowadays into an attractive spot being swarmed by visitors from the city and far beyond.

Drive along the Atlantic Coastline to the Hercules Caves with the option to experience the camel ride by the Atlantic sandy beach. Hercules Caves date back to the Neolithic era. Drive back to the majestic Kasbah that is dramatically perched uphill overlooking the Mediterranean, Spain, Gibraltar and the Medina. It was resided by Sultans since 15th century.

Visit the Kasbah Museum that consists of a vast selection of antiquities including Roman remains.

Walk through the narrow alleyways down to the vibrant Medina with colorful boutiques, bazaars, lively souks and unique style of life.

There is no better way to end the tour than wandering in the souks or market place where skillful artisans and craftsmen display their traditional hand made items always willing to start a conversation and negotiate the price

In the late afternoon, your Private Guide will escort you back to the Tangier port or to any location of your preference in Tangier.
