Day 1: Tangier

Upon your arrival, your driver will be waiting for you outside Tangier port, holding a sign with your name and our logo ready to take you to your accommodation.

Tangier is located on the North corner of African coast at the western entrance to the strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel.

It has always fascinated artists worldwide with its charm, and like many Moroccan cities, Tangier is divided into an old walled city or medina, a nest of medieval alleyways, and a new modern city.

Tangier

Day 2: Tangier - Guided tour

The Medina of Tangier is focused around Petit Socco, a small square; it is full of narrow twisting streets, old houses, shops, restaurants and cafes - the Central Café being famous as the place where many writers and artists of the ‘Beat’ generation used to hang out. Grand Socco is where the Medina starts, and is the link to La Ville Nouvelle.

This morning, a 2-3 hours Historical City visit will allow you to have a closer look at the best sights of Tangier.

Our guide will collect you from the hotel and take you the Medina; the old town that is compact compared to the other Moroccan Medinas. It is also easy to lose your orientation in its labyrinths of alleys. You then visit few Souks (local markets) on your way to the Grand Mosque, the Kasbah, Dar el-Makhzen Museum, and the Grand - Petit Socco squares.

The rest of the day will be left free for you to enjoy at your own pace.
