What to Expect
Take a 6-hour grand tour of Tangier to explore the traditional and modern face of the city with an expert guide. Discover a city of many cultures from the comfort of an air-conditioned minibus.

Start by visiting Tangier Port and the outskirts of the city, crossing the modern town with its large boulevards and exclusive areas of large villas, celebrity homes and palaces, including the summer residence of the Moroccan royal family.

Continue to Cape Spartel at the entrance to the Straits of Gibraltar, and see the lighthouse that marks the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Stop to ride or take pictures of camels, before visiting the Caves of Hercules, inhabited since the Neolithic period. According to legend, they were once the home of Hercules, founder of Tangier, who created the Straits of Gibraltar with a single blow of his hand.

Next, explore the old face of Tangier, and walk through the historic Kasbah, home to the Dar-el-Makhzen (Sultanate Palace) and Museum of Moroccan Arts and Antiquities in the former Sultan’s apartments. Continue to the maze-like Medina, where tanners work on leather goods and artisans make handicrafts from wood and silver.

Visit the Archaeological Museum or the American Legation, the first American public property outside of the United States. Admire the Parc de la Mendoubia (also known as the Grand Socco) where Moroccan independence was fermented, and vendors sell a variety of second-hand goods. Explore the colorful streets at leisure, before driving back to the port at the end of your tour.
