Full description

Discover Moroccan culture and flavors on this day trip from Málaga and Costa del Sol. Visit the traditional Moroccan city of Tetouan, cross the Strait of Gibraltar by ferry, and see the Royal Palace or Khalifa Palace, the Archaeological Museum, and the Center of Modern Art.

Meet your guide at the pickup point in Malaga and hop on the bus to Algeciras. During the trip, journey through Malaga and along the Costa del Sol while the guide tells you anecdotes and curiosities about Morocco. Arrive at Algeciras to board an express ferry.

Sail for 60 minutes to Ceuta across the strait. Once in Ceuta, set foot on Moroccan soil and enjoy a panoramic tour of the city of Ceuta. Drive by the Royal Walls and the Moat of San Felipe. Take a scenic drive from Ceuta to Tetouan which lasts about half an hour.

Arrive in Tetouan, take a pleasant walk with a local guide to see the most iconic areas of the city. In Hassan II Square you'll stop outside the Royal Palace or Khalifa Palace, the Archaeological Museum, and the Center of Modern Art.

Stroll through the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter or Mellah and see the Bengualid synagogue. The souk of Tetouan is a real journey through time that will allow you to get to know the work of its craftsmen.

Continue through the Medina of Tetouan and be surrounded by the white walls and green doors of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stop for lunch at a typical Moroccan restaurant. Listen to live music while savoring cous cous and Arabic pastries.

After lunch, stroll through the shopping area of Tetouan and visit some establishments for shopping and a typical Moroccan Herbalist with natural products to discover all the benefits of the properties of Argan Oil.

It is an very good trip which takes in all the main sites of Tetouan - the local guide was excellent and very informative. The long wait at border control both in and out were tedious - our passports were checked 7 times on the way out! Great day otherwise.

The trip was an experience and has become accustomed. The guide was very good. A little like a teacher but he put in a lot of effort and explained everything very well. The only bad thing about the trip was the border clearance on the return trip. Wait 1.30 minutes and show your passports 4 times. That was a bit of an exaggeration. There's nothing like that even in the US, but that wasn't the tour company's fault. All in all a long day but enlightening. You should wear comfortable shoes because you have to walk a lot. In any case, recommended

Really good trip and recommend this wholeheartedly. It’s very interesting and well organized. The only downside was the bus wasn’t at Algeciras when returning at 10:00PM due to mechanical problems. We had to wait over two hours for another bus, putting us at our hotel at 2:00 AM. Frustrating and exhausting end to an otherwise good tour.
