Details & Itinerary

Tangier is a city in Morocco located along the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of the most popular destinations in Africa for travelers from Europe and North America. The name ‘Tangier’ comes from the Greek word for ‘Tinjis’, a daughter of the titan Atlas, who was supposed to support the vault of heaven nearby. The city of Tangier is one of the oldest in Africa and a major port. It was founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century B 12th century as a major trading post with Europe. During the 15th century, the city became an important stopping point for Spanish and Portuguese ships on their way to trade with Africa. After Tangier became a Spanish possession, it became one of their most important ports on the continent.

The city of Tangier is known for its architecture, especially its Kasbahs. A kasbah is an old fortified building that serves as a home for merchants who conducted business with European countries. Tangier is also famous for its seafood and poultry dishes, such as fish cooked in spices and chicken cooked in honey. Additionally, Tangier is known as a religious center; it is home to many mosques and churches that are decorated with beautiful mosaics and art work.


We welcome you at Tangier city port, your Cruise, Airport, your Riad/hotel (if it is in the old town), or any agreed-upon place.


The most beautiful places we have chosen for you to experience the very best of Tangier:

  • The Old city of Tangier :

The Medina, Tangier’s main attraction, is a maze of alleys dedicated to both stores and residences. It is surrounded by the walls of a 15th century Portuguese fortress, although most of the buildings are relatively new for a Moroccan medina.

  • The Petit Souk or Petit Socco, also called the Little Souk :

Is one of those places that reflect the essence of the city in which they are located. In this case, this small square in the heart of the medina of Tangier is a must for any visitor who wants to feel the pulse of the city and experience its traditions.

  • The Kasbah of Tangier :

is located in the upper part of the medina. So to visit the Kasbah you have to go to the medina, a small universe full of life, and then walk through the steep alleys to the oldest part. The former citadel is approximately from the 10th century and, in spite of the gradual transformations, still retains more than enough of its original features to take you back in time.

  • Moshe Nahon Synagogue :

Hidden behind an inconspicuous door, the Moshe Nahon Synagogue exposes a splendid and monumental synagogue, typical of synagogues in northern Morocco, considered one of the most beautiful synagogues in Morocco.

  • Achakar Beach :

It has extensive sandy areas available for swimmers. This beach has the advantage of being very clean and pleasant to use.

  • Hercules Cave :

The Caves of Hercules are located just 14 kilometers outside Tangier. This cave system, worth visiting for its geological features and mythological meaning, can be visited by people of all ages.

Best time to visit Morocco

The climate in Morocco varies wildly according to the season and area of travel. In the lowlands, the cooler months from October to April are popular among visitors. This time of year is pleasantly warm to hot (around 30°C) during the day and cool to cold (around 15°C) at night. Winter in the higher regions often brings snow and can therefore get seriously cold, particularly at night. Tourists flock to the coastline from June to September for fun in the sun, with warm mostly rain-free days. Further inland it can get hot and rain is rare, which makes the best times to travel March to June and September to December.

Morocco Culture & Customs

Morocco's culture has developed over centuries of influence from far and wide. Contemporary Morocco is a fascinating mix of Berber, Mediterranean, Andalucian, and African traditions, which are present in the cuisine, clothing, music, language, customs, and lifestyle. As an Islamic country, most Moroccans are Muslim; however, there are small populations of people who practice Judaism and Christianity. Classic examples of Islamic architecture can be observed all throughout the country and tenets of the Islamic religion are carried out in the customs and lives of the people. The 'Call to Prayer' can be heard five times a day, women are expected to dress modestly and alcohol isn't drunk by most of the population. 

Most of Moroccan society can be considered traditional, with respect for elders, connection to family, and giving alms to the poor hallmarks of everyday life for many Moroccans. Hospitality is another important element of society, with warmly welcoming people into your home a time-honored tradition and social responsibility that dates back centuries.

Vegetarian and Vegan Options in Morocco ?

Much of Morocco's cuisine revolves around meat, but vegetables are an important staple and a crucial ingredient in many dishes of the Maghreb. Your diet can consist of more than just flatbread and hummus – trust us. Keep an eye out for vegetable-based tagines and couscous, the renowned Zaalouk (a smokey eggplant and tomato salad), vegetable Briouats (triangular-filled pastries), and cinnamon oranges. Vegan options are slightly more limited, as many of the pieces of bread and couscous dishes have butter added to them, but your best bet is to enquire if yours can be made using oil instead. Otherwise, it's easy to dine well on varied vege offerings in Morocco.
