Have your morning coffee in Europe and your afternoon tea in Africa.
One-day tour to Tangier, Morocco is a unique experience Spanish Heritage DMC offers your attendees if the group is staying in the south of Spain.
This Moroccan port city is less than 20 miles from the Spanish coast, separated by the narrow Strait of Gibraltar, just catch a 1-hour ferry from Tarifa and suddenly you are in a totally different destination.
Marbella is very well-known since the 60s as one of the Spanish Costa del Sol s best beach resorts and also a set for the rich & famous.
Since then, the city has been rediscovered as the MICE destination offering a perfect mix of culture, a wide selection of excellent hotels and resorts, a vibrant nightlife, postcard-perfect beaches and mild weather all year round.
This coastal city is the ideal spot to enjoy the Spanish culture with a flamenco show or visiting a real bull farm, treat your inner sybarite with some Michelin-star gastronomy and have a party of a lifetime at one of the Puerto Banus s clubs surrounded by luxury yachts & expensive cars.
A day-tour to Tangier is a totally different and unique add-on to your Andalusian experience and Morocco for sure is the ideal starting point for the traveller to Africa.
This exciting 1-hour excursion across the Gibraltar starts in the morning in Tarifa port where we will catch our comfortable ferry boat straight to Tangier, the gateway into Africa. A bus will pick us up for a sightseeing tour in Tangier city and the countryside.
We shall make our way through the hilly area of California , the residential area full of palaces. These hills were home to the berbers (the original inhabitants of North Africa) for centuries and you can still see a few of them selling goods along the road. We can already appreciate some beautiful sea views from up here.
Further on, we will head to Cape Spartel where the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic meet. The guides assure that depending on the day you can actually see this division - the white line due to the different water density of the two seas.
For more picture opportunities, you can enjoy a camel ride on the beach and make sure not to miss the Caves of Hercules where the rock curiously forms the mirrored image of the map of Africa with the sea at the background.
The Tangier s old town is all about white & blue colors, traditional Moorish architecture and winding streets, perfect for getting lost. Lost in a good way as a random walk in Tangier s Medina is an enjoyable experience taking into account that you have the opportunity to get a bargain of the year at its numerous souks (markets).
The northwestern part of the medina is made up of the Kasbah (a fortress). The main building here is the Dar el-Makhzen that has served as residence for sultans and European colonial lords. Today it is a history museum.
Speaking of the Arabic high society, now it is right the time to treat ourselves with a good sultanic lunch. The local specialties are couscous, steak or swordfish brochettes and very comforting Moroccan Mint tea.
