Stop At: Parc Perdicaris, Foret de R_milat, Tangier Morocco

Upon meeting you, you will be welcomed by your tour guide having at your disposal a comfortable, Wi-Fi fitted air-conditioned, private minivan for a ride that will take you first from Tangier’s bay up to the city center through Boulevard Mohamed V, Avenue Pasteur, and then Place De France.

The park’s terrace offers the best opportunity to take in the breathtaking view over the Strait of Gibraltar and Southern Spain.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Cap Spartel, 14km west of Tangier, Tangier Morocco

Your next stop will be Cap Spartel, the most North Western point of mainland Africa and also the meeting point of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The lighthouse of Cap Spartel tops a promontory and gloriously guards the entrance of the Straits of Gibraltar since 1864. Limitless opportunities of photos are to be seized in Cap Spartel, and you can have your breakfast (own expense) while enjoying the view.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Achakar Beach, Tangier, Morocco

Afterwards, a drive along the Atlantic coastline to the south of Cap Spartel will get you to Achakar beach, on the sands of which you will meet the camels. You can ride those lovely animals, which is completely safe for you and for them of course, or just enjoy their company and take some memorable photos with them, it’s your call.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Hercules Cave, Cap Spartel, Tangier Morocco

If you’re familiar with Greek mythology, you might remember the 12 Labors of Hercules. In fact, Lixus (near Larache, south of Tangier) is rumored to be the basis for Hercules’ Eleventh Labor, the apples of Hesperides or the golden apples. It was after he retrieved the golden apples that it is thought Hercules rested where your next destination is: Hercules Caves. The myth has persisted long enough to make from the sea grotto the attraction number one in Tangier.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Medina of Tangier, Tangier Morocco

For the second part of your private tour of Tangier, You’ll be immersed into the historical heritage and the cultural prosperity of Tangier’s old town: the Medina. You will feel as if you have time-traveled back several centuries to a medieval time when the community still operates according to ancient norms and traditions. Hammams (public baths), communal ovens, fountains, squares, craftsmen, markets and cafes are all still working and remind us of a glorious era of Tangier.

The walking tour of the Medina will let you have a direct contact with the friendly locals; and by strolling down the Medina’s labyrinthine alleyways, the tour will take you through the most important landmarks of the city such as the Grand Socco, the Petit Socco, and the Kasbah. You will also visit monuments that are considered as architectural masterpieces decorated with mosaics, ornamental stucco, and wood carvings such as the Great Mosque, Dar El Mekhzen (own expense) located in the Kasbah, and the American Legation (own expense), which is the only American national monument located outside of the United States, and the place of a large library specializing in North Africa, many paintings from Americans, Europeans and Moroccans, and several small models recreating some historic battles. The real bonus there is the “Paul Bowles” wing, named for the American author who called Tangier home for 50 years and died here in 1999.

Of course you will have plenty of opportunities to stop for lunch (own expense) during the Medina tour, just ask our tour guide for suggestions, he will escort you to the type of restaurant you prefer. Just before the end of the tour, you will be left with some free time to scout for handcrafted souvenirs at bazaars (IF YOU WANT), or simply to sip on a mint tea in a traditional café and learn about mint tea rituals. Finally, the tour concludes when we drop you off where the tour has started.

Duration: 5 hours

Stop At: Place du Grand 9 Avril 1947, Tangier 90000 Morocco

During the tour of the Medina, you’ll make a stop at this historical square which is commonly known as Grand Socco and that divides the Medina from the Ville Nouvelle area of Tangier. The souk nearby is particularly colorful, It’s held every Thursday and the female peasant sellers are known for their striped Foutas (towels) and wide-brimmed straw hats.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Petit Socco, Tangier Morocco

During the tour inside the walls of the Medina, you’ll make a stop at this historical square which is locally known as Souk Dakhel and was once home to many notable writers and affluent people in the city like Paul Bowles, Jean Genet and Mohamed Choukri. Today the facades of its Hispano-Moorish buildings are freshly painted, tourists abound and it’s a wonderful square for people-watching over a mint tea.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Tangier Casbah, Tangier 90000 Morocco

While touring the Medina you will mostly approach the Kasbah (the fortress) through either of the two gates, Bab Haha or Bab El-Assa, and enter on Place du Mechouar (often referred to as Place de la Kasbah). The Kasbah was a place for the local leader to live and a defense when the city was under attack. The Kasbah has high walls and it was built on hilltop so that it could be more easily defended.

In the eastern part of the Kasbah is located Dar El-Makhzen, which was once the governor’s residence and also the seat of residence for the Sultans of Morocco when staying in the city. Now Dar El-Makhzen is home to The Kasbah Museum of Mediterranean cultures (le Musée la Kasbah des cultures méditerranéennes). The building is centered within two courtyards, which are decorated with wooden ceilings, marble fountains and arabesques. Some of the columns used are of Roman origin.
