What To Expect

Medina of Tangier
Once in the Medina, you’ll be immediately immersed in the historical heritage and the cultural prosperity of old Tangier. You will literally feel as if you have time-traveled back to medieval times.
The walking tour of the Medina will let you have direct contact with the friendly locals; and by strolling down the Medina’s labyrinthine alleyways, the tour will take you through the most important landmarks of the city such as the Grand Socco, the Petit Socco, and the Kasbah. You will also visit monuments that are considered architectural masterpieces decorated with mosaics, ornamental stucco, and wood carvings such as the Great Mosque, Dar El Mekhzen located in the Kasbah, and the American Legation.

Place du Grand 9 Avril 1947
During the tour of the Medina, you’ll make a stop at this historical square which is commonly known as Grand Socco and that divides the Medina from the Ville Nouvelle area of Tangier. It is one of the places that hosted Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany when he visited Tangiers on 3 March 1905. The stopover that worsened tension between the Germans and the French and that, among other events, ultimately led to the World War I. It’s also the location where King Mohamed V delivered his speech and the symbol of his arrival to the city on April 9, 1947 when Tangiers was under international domination.

During the tour inside the walls of the Medina, you’ll make a stop at this historical square which is locally known as Souk Dakhel and was once home to many notable and extremely significant writers like Paul Bowles, Jean Genet, Tennessee Williams and Mohamed Choukri. Today the facades of its Hispano-Moorish buildings are freshly painted, tourists abound and it’s a wonderful square for people-watching over a mint tea.

Tangier Casbah
While touring the Medina you will mostly approach the Kasbah (the fortress) through either of the two gates, Bab Haha or Bab El-Assa, and enter Place du Mechouar (often referred to as Place de la Kasbah). The Kasbah was a place for the local leader to live and a defense when the city was under attack. The Kasbah has high walls and it was built on a hilltop so that it could be more easily defended.

[OPTIONAL]
Hovering at the edge of the medina, just off the bustling Grand Socco is this magnificent Anglican Church that is a real tribute to the harmony of Christianity and Islam. Tour the quiet gardens, the final resting place for many of the church's international community, before ducking into the church. Note the Lord’s Prayer written in exquisite Arabic calligraphy just about the pulpit and the numerous Andalusian-Moroccan touches throughout.

Gran Mezquita de Tanger
The Great Mosque of Tangier is a nineteenth-century construction that stands in what was once the center of the Medina of Tangier. The site of the mosque was formerly the home of several significant religious buildings from various civilizations that previously occupied Tangier, dating back originally to a fifth-century Roman church. After the Muslim conquest of Tangier in the eighth century, the church was converted to a mosque by the Marinid Dynasty and remained so until the late fifteenth century. The mosque was replaced by a church during the centuries in which Tangier was under Portuguese and English rule. After Moulay Ismail recaptured the city for the Alawi dynasty in 1684, the church was once again transformed into a mosque. Sultan Sulayman completely rebuilt the mosque in 1815 due to its poor physical condition, creating the building that stands in Tangier today.

Tangier American Legation Museum
[THE MUSEUM OPENS MONDAYS-FRIDAYS FROM 10 AM TO 5 PM AND SATURDAYS FROM 10 AM TO 3 PM. IT CLOSES ON SUNDAYS AND DURING MOROCCAN HOLIDAYS.]
Close to the aptly named “Bab Merican,” this elegant five-story mansion is the only American national monument located outside of the United States. As you may know, Morocco was the first country to recognize the fledgling United States, in 1777, and this was the first piece of American real estate abroad, as the original building was given to the United States to serve as a diplomatic presence in Morocco by Sultan Mulay Suliman in 1821 and served as such in some capacity until 1961, and that is the longest period (140 years) any building abroad has been occupied as a United States diplomatic post.

Moshe Nahon Synagogue
[OPTIONAL]
Located on a dead-end street off Rue des Synagogues in the Beni Idir quarter of the Medina of Tangier, this synagogue was constructed in 1876 by Moïse Jacob Nahon, a prominent educator, and scholar from an influential Jewish family in Tangier. The synagogue ceased activity in the second half of the 20th century and subsequently fell into disrepair until its restoration in 1994. It now functions as a museum.

[ONLY AVAILABLE FOR THE TOUR WITH THE “MEDINA, CAP SPARTEL, & CAMELS” OPTION.]

Limitless opportunities for photos are to be seized in Cap Spartel, and you can have your breakfast (own expense) while enjoying the view. Obviously, if your tour is in the morning and you decided to take the coastal excursion first ;)

Hercules Cave
[ONLY AVAILABLE FOR THE TOUR WITH THE “MEDINA, CAP SPARTEL, & CAMELS” OPTION.]If you’re familiar with Greek mythology, you might remember the 12 Labors of Hercules. In fact, Lixus (near Larache, south of Tangier) is rumored to be the basis for Hercules’ Eleventh Labor, the apples of Hesperides or the golden apples. It was after he retrieved the golden apples that it is thought Hercules rested where your next destination is: Hercules Caves. The myth has persisted long enough to make the sea grotto the attraction number one in Tangier.

Both Latif and Abdullah...

Both Latif and Abdullah were amazing. Very knowledge and adapted the tour to our interests. Highly recommend.
Fantastic trip in Tangier!!!
aspungen, 26-06-2022
We were picked up at our hotel by Abdul and taken to see Assilah. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and informative and he had a great sense of humor!!! We loved the places he showed us and he also offered to add a separate trip into the part of the Tanger Medina that we hadn’t seen yesterday, without charge.
Just awesome. One of the best tours I've ever had.
837estherm, 25-04-2022
Guide was timely for pick up. Speaks excellent English and Spanish, in addition to other languages. Extremely accommodating. Tour was fabulous. We started by visiting Asilah, a coastal town. I'll let you check out the pics so you can see for yourself. As for Chefchaouen, starting with the gorgeous mountain views as we drove to Chefchaouen...beautiful mountains, sheep, goats, cows, horses... and more. We drove by three dams with incredible scenery. The town itself is just beautiful and everybody is so friendly. See pics!
...

Tour guide was consistently went above and beyond. Highly recommend.
Wonderful Tangier experience
PASJ1234, 23-04-2022
The tour guides were fantastic. They were very knowledgeable of the city, and were able to customize our tour to the spots that we wanted to see. The tour guides showed us classic sights of Tangier as well as unique locations only known by the local community. Would recommend that future travellers do some research on the area to prioritize specific sights they want to see. The four hours goes by very quickly. The guides provided us with a parting gift and ensured we arrived at the ferry safe and sound. Overall an amazing tour and I would highly recommend!
Great Tangier Guides!
Michelle_J, 01-04-2022
My mother and i had a wonderful day with our guides! They have a great vehicle to take you around and see the sites. Both guides have lots of knowledge of Tangier and answered all our questions. They took us to lots of locations we never would have found and customized the trip to things we wanted to see.
The driver even surprised us w a box of moroccan cookies after he dropped us off. Highly recommend this trip!
You won’t be disappointed. We had a perfect day!
Jenny B, 10-10-2022
You won’t be disappointed. Seriously. Stop scrolling and schedule with this company. After a day with Abdelmajid Domnati, we felt like friends. We were cared for and protected all day. Abdelmajid Domnati’s knowledge of Tangier was vast, and he explained the history in an engaging way. It was evident from the beginning that his goal was for us to have an amazing day. When we were hungry, he quickly found us delicious food. When we were thirsty, he showed us to a drink. We were unaware of the time difference between Spain and Morocco, so we arrived an hour early. Still Abdelmajid Domnati was there as soon as we called to help us navigate the arrival. I can’t recommend LatifTours enough.
