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.

The experience has been very good, very complete, the first part with Shaid was phenomenal, the visit to the cave of Hercules, Cape Espartel, the forest and the Hafa café, the second part, the ancient city, is very good, but the The guide directs you directly to the stores that he wants you to go to and doesn't have time to visit the rest. Overall great, highly recommend.

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.

An amazing tour.

The tour was perfect, the five people who went agreed, we were delighted, but I am the only one who can leave the evaluation because the tour was contracted with my email. Our guide was "Assisi" (Srifi Az-Elarab). We visited all the places that are mentioned in the tour with their respective explanations, it was very interesting, Assisi told us both the historical part and the curiosities, he recommended the best places to eat or any activity we asked him about, he got us the best prices He took us to the best places to see the views and take beautiful photos. On the way from site to site we talked not only about the history of Tangier, but also Morocco. The time of the tour was respected at all times but giving us each stop we wanted. We couldn't have enjoyed this tour/city more. It was 6 hours that we found very fun, interesting and very short, we would repeat without a doubt. Tangier is a beautiful city and Assisi is the Messi of guides!
