Guided Tours and excursions to Tangier
The white city of Tangier, situated in Morocco, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, is the gateway to the continent of Africa; a cosmopolitan town which has been a place of inspiration for many artists and intellectuals. Located a few miles from Spain, the two continents are separated at its narrowest point, off Tarifa, only 14 kilometres and offer magnificent views of the Strait and a fantastic light worthy of being enjoyed.
Because of this proximity, a trip to Tangier gives us the opportunity not only to immerse in another completely different culture, but also get into the African continent. Visiting Tangier with an organized tour can be a great idea to maximize our time on the Costa del Sol. Thus trips to Tangier from the Costa del Sol, for a day or several days, are a popular package among travellers taking advantage of holidays and time off in Malaga.
Who has had the opportunity to explore the white villages of Andalucia, will notice right away the Moorish style in the whitewashed houses, an Arab heritage that has been preserved for centuries on the European side of the Strait. The old town of Tangier is very similar, with a maze of narrow streets, small houses, old buildings, a castle and small shops. We find both traditional houses and European-style buildings, lush gardens, monuments and palaces, as well as the modern part of Tangier with large buildings. The Kasbah and Medina are among the main attractions of Tangier.
For entry to Morocco you need a passport valid for at least 90 days. The national currency is the Dirham being 11 Dirham = 1 Euro.
