Itinerary
Depart central Malaga by air-conditioned coach for Tarifa, the ferry port for Morocco, and enjoy a high-speed crossing to Tangier.

On arrival, take a panoramic coach drive around the city’s Ville Nouvelle district, while learning about its colonial history. Then, stroll around the souks and medina (walled town). View the kasbah (old citadel), watch a snake charmer, and try freshly made breads and pastries at a bakery.

After visiting a crafts-and-carpet bazaar, have lunch at a traditional restaurant. Savor staples, such as slow-baked tagine (stew), and enjoy a Berber dance performance as you eat.

Absorb sea views from the Cape Spartel headland and, after mint tea, enjoy a camel ride (own expense) along a stunning beach. Your tour ends with a ferry ride and drop-off at the Malaga location from which you embarked.

Please note: This tour’s itinerary and scheduling are subject to change from December to April, according to ferry timetables and Ramadan.

Disorganised, rushed and too much selling

My kids really wanted to go to Tangier on their visit this year, slightly last minute planning so ended up with these guys. Early start, but the bus was on time. The rudeness of some of the other passengers isn't Julia's fault, but the poor...More

The most terrible trip I've ever been on

I visited Tangier with my family on a day trip from Malaga in December 2017. I still can't believe how badly organized this trip was. First, the bus never came to pick us up in Fuengirola, though we specifically had made this arrangement and had...More
