Full description

Private day trip to Tangier from Marbella

At the crossroads of Europe and Africa, the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, Tangier opens its doors into Morocco. Enjoy an ultimate Tangier private tour!

There is still an air of mystery about the city that remains from the times when Tangier was an international zone. Since its foundation, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Arabs, Spaniards, Portuguese and English have jealously fought for the right to control it. This Tangier tour from Marbella will introduce you to this exotic city where you will discover its culture and history of this North African city situated in the most northwesterly area of Morocco.

Tangier tour from Marbella

No other African city is closer to Europe and no other is more dearly loved by European and American artists: Delacroix, Matisse, Tennesse Williams, Jean Genet, Joseph Kessel, Williams Burroughs and Paul Bowles to name but a few, have all lived in Tangier and been captivated by its spell.

Upon arrival from Spain, after crossing the Strait of Gibraltar during approximately one hour, our guide will be awaiting for you at the pier for this luxury Tour through Tangier.

This Tangier day tour from Marbella it’s composed of two parts just like the city itself.

A driven tour (in a new Mercedes Taxi) will take you to discover the modern Tangier and then take you up to the Northwestern tip of the African continent where the strait of Gibraltar embraces the Atlantic Ocean. Not far from this extraordinary site, the Hercules caves will take you back to the original location of the first people established in Tangier.

Then, the Kasbah gate introduces you to the other Tangier, the Medina with its white-washed houses, small privacy proof windows and narrow alleys. The way will slowly take you to the Kasbah Square and to the sultan’s palace.

Lunch will be served in a local restaurant where you will enjoy traditional arab food and teas.

The Medina offers you a good opportunity to shop around; leather, native silver Berber jewelery and hand mad rugs are amongst the most attractive items produced in the country. A stop at the spices is a must before you head out of the market area.

To finish this Tangier private tour from Marbella, there’ll be a transfer back to the ferry.

Our main reason for hiring a private tour was the fact that we had a 4 month old baby. We needed a tour company that would be patient and understanding for us taking breaks to feed and change the baby, and Julio and his team were most accommodating. We took tours to Seville and Morocco. Enjoyed both trips immensely. Would highly recommend. Lana was great in helping us plan these trips…she was so much friendlier than another tour company we contacted, and was the main reason for us hiring Marbella in Style.

“We did two day trips from Marbella to Tangier and Granada&Alhambra. The guide we had in Tangier was amazing. We got a great tour! And want needs to be mentioned, all the kids aging 5-17 years enjoyed the day. And everything worked, no delays, no problems. Wau!
The other trip was to Granada&Alhambra. There we had some diffidulties as the guide was not 100 % top of all things. But she did make her best effort.
The price was a bit high, but as we did two trips, we got a bit of a discount.
All in all, we recommend!”

We did two tours with Julio, one to Ronda and the other to Morocco. Julio was very knowledgeable and most accommodating to all out needs. When in Morocco we were met by his associate and driver. Julio was with us there also, didn’t just send us on the ferry and tell us to look for them. We felt very safe at all times. Can’t thank him enough, when we go back which we will he will definitely be our tour guide again.

Julio was the Best!
We did day trips to Ronda and Morocco.
Julio made both trips enjoyable and interesting. He is knowledgeable, shared past and present history of the areas, was efficient, personable and trustworthy!
We felt very confident and safe with him.
Both were trips of a life-time. Thanks Julio!

We had a fabulous time with Julio during our vacation in Marbella Spain. We would never have ventured so far without his guidance, connections and knowledge of what to see and where to go. Ronda’s countryside is beautiful and the wineries were fantastic – so much hospitality! The Tangier tour is absolutely amazing. We felt we touched paradise while at Le Mirage drinking mint tea. Aziz (tour guide in Tangier) was delightful and entertaining. We highly recommend Marbella In-Style tour guide services if you are going to visit Marbella. It is an opportunity of a lifetime to experience south Spain with Julio.
