My friend and I enjoyed this tour a lot! I'm originally from Morocco and my friend is visiting from the US, and we booked this guided tour last minute but we did not regret it! Starting from our super friendly driver, Ahmed, who was so kind and entertaining, to our great tour guide, Ben, who was very knowledgeable and passionate about explaining the different cultural and historical aspect of the city--- we loved it all! We got to visit Cap Spartel, Hercules caves, the old medina and markets, and the Kasbah. We also drove around California neighborhood, royal palace and several other interesting neighborhoods while enjoying different panoramics. This was truly great! I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tangier for the 1st time!
