Depart your Tangier hotel by private, air-conditioned minivan with your guide, and delve into the bustling streets as you learn about the city’s history and culture.
Stop first at the walled medina to tour its labyrinthine alleyways. Pass the peeling Moorish- and Andalusian-style houses as you learn how the medina formed old Tangier's heart, and see landmarks like the main square and kasbah, with its rich architecture and marble courtyard. Along the way, browse a fruit, vegetable, and spice souk, and visit a bakery to sample some delicious local breads.
Head for the new town to view the palm-lined Avenue Mohammed VI, Royal Palace, Severo Ochoa school, and colonial-era buildings; and travel to Tangier's Atlantic shores, stopping to see the Punic-Roman necropolis on the way.
Gaze at these ancient graves, carved into a plateau facing the Straits of Gibraltar, and visit Cape Spartel, the lighthouse-topped promontory that seemingly stands guard over where the Atlantic and Mediterranean meet.
Visit the famous Caves of Hercules (own expense), a picturesque sea grotto that opens to the crashing Atlantic, and enjoy an optional camel ride (own expense) along the sand dunes.
Your tour then concludes with a hotel drop-off.
