Right after your breakfast, we meet you at the lobby of your accommodation to take you on a private sightseeing tour to explore the old medina of Tangier, enjoy the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean coast as well as to wander the labyrinthine streets of the Medina, see crumbling colonial architecture, and go to the legendary caves of Hercules and Cap Spartel.
Our walk will be dedicated to explore the main attractions of the cosmopolitan city of Tangier. The journey will take us from bustling markets of the old medina to historic caves. We will start our sightseeing with a drive to Malabata Cape (East Tangier) for a great orientation view of the city. Look over at Europe on one side and Africa on the other.
Our next stop will be Spartel Cape (West Tangier), which is considered the most northwesterly point of Africa, and where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean. The Caves of Hercules are also among our list to visit in Tangier.
According to legend, the caves were once the home of Hercules, who created the Straits of Gibraltar with a single blow of hand. In addition, we will also cover the old face of the city, starting with the Kasbah, where artists and writers have gathered for centuries. Furthermore, we will discover the Archaeological Museum before walking through the colorful streets of the Medina to Mendoubia ‘delegation’ Gardens, Saint Andrews Church, and to experience the electric atmosphere of the Berber market of Sidi Bouabid, where you will have some free time to shop. We will have lunch at one of the restaurants before we walk you back to the hotel. End of our services.
