Discover the charms of Tangier and the surrounding countryside on this introductory excursion that also presents Morocco’s cultural side through a folkloric show.

After departing from the pier, you will follow a scenic route through Tangier, an ancient city that has been an important trade center for 2,500 years. Because of its strategic location at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea, Tangier was repeatedly invaded through antiquity and its buildings reflect the diverse architectural styles of its occupiers.

Driving along the palm-lined avenues, you will pass through affluent neighborhoods and into the most modern section of Tangier, which has sparked a resurgence of construction and renovation throughout the city. Continuing west, you will see the lovely seaside resort of Malabata and then pause for photos at beautiful Cap Spartel, a promontory at the entrance of the Strait of Gibraltar. According to legend, Hercules rested in the caves here after completing his labors.

Returning to Tangier, you will enter the fortified Kasbah district, which perches high on a hill overlooking the medina and sea. At a venue within the famed Kasbah, you will watch a delightful folkloric show while enjoying pastries and mint tea. More than just a drink in Morocco, tea is a symbol of hospitality, friendship and tradition.

Before returning to the pier, you'll visit the Tangier American Legation, an elaborate Moorish-style building in the medina of Tangier. It is recognized as “The first American public property outside of the United States” and it commemorates the historic cultural and diplomatic relations between the United States and the Kingdom of Morocco.
