The Medina (Old Town) and the Kasbah (old fortress) is your next destination, before moving on to a local bakery to try a sample of fragrant, freshly baked bread.
After watching a snake charmer perform his age-old magic, relax and indulge in a delicious lunch in a traditional Moroccan restaurant (included).
Following lunch, you’ll visit a local bazaar and take a coach sightseeing tour along the coastal road into the Italian, American, Spanish and Portuguese quarters of Tangier.
You’ll also see the Royal Palace and make a stop at the Punico Roman necropolis which offers magnificent views over the Strait of Gibraltar and surrounding countryside.
This action-packed tour continues with a stop at the point where the Mediterranean and Atlantic Ocean meet, the Cape Spartel, where you can sip a refreshing cup of mint tea and learn about the ritual behind this traditional refreshment before visiting Hercules Caves.
Keep your camera handy for a photo-opportunity at nearby dunes where you can take an optional camel ride before beginning the return journey which takes you through the most exclusive and poorest neighbourhoods in Tangier, offering a fascinating insight into how the two live side-by-side.
Finally, enjoy the ride back across the Strait of Gibraltar on the Tangier ferry which’ll take you back to the ferry port for the coach journey back to the Costa del Sol.
Travel across the Strait of Gibraltar on the Tangier ferry and upon arrival enjoy a panoramic coach tour which takes you through the American, Italian, French and Spanish quarters of this diverse, cosmopolitan city.
