Excursions to Tangier from Tarifa

Discover the city of Tangier, located about 17 km north of Africa. It is not only a different country, but a continent, a history and a culture totally different from the Spanish one.

Cross the strait on a ferry and enter this historic city. We will start our tour in the old city, from the top of the medina, Kasbah. From here, our guide will take us through the narrow streets of the medina and the special souk shops, full of Arabic handicrafts. Afterwards, we will discover the Mendoubia gardens, where we will enter the palace and learn how it has functioned throughout history.

We will stop at the necropolis of Roman character, where there will be free time to shop and wander around the souk. If after this tour you are hungry, don’t worry, towards the middle of the day, we will stop for lunch and taste some of the typical dishes of the region, such as harira soup, beef kebabs, couscous, tea or cakes. All this with live traditional music playing in the background.

We will stroll back to the port of Tangier and catch the return ferry, which will take us back to the port of Tarifa. Come on this adventure with us and experience a special day getting to know the city of Tangier.
