Discovering the rich culture of Morocco!

Tangier and Asilah can make a perfect combination for a day trip to Morocco, due to the short distance between the two cities. Asilah is a charming small coastal town, founded by the Phoenicians as a trading post. Its white-washed medina surronded by Portuguse ramparts attracts large numbers of tourists.

The itinerary covers the main highlights in and around Tangier, notably the legendary Cave of Hercules and Cape Spartel, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranen, and the junction between Africa and Europe.
The light and the coulors of the Kasbah of Tangier inspired many artists and painters, among them Eugène Delacroix, Henri Matisse, Kees Van Dongen. .
The Medina with its alleyways and narrow streets, and its vibrant Souks (food & crafts market), provides the flavour of Morocco, and a unique cultural experience.


The itinerary begins with an orientation tour through the center of the colonial town, and the residential district "La Montagne". After a mint tea break at Cape Spartel, and riding the camels, we will continue towards the legendary Cave of Hercules, then driving along the Atlantic coast to Asilah.
After lunch and an exploration walk through one of the best preserved medinas in Morocco, we will drive back to Tangier for visiting the kasbah and the souks.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide Maurice (Abdelmoghit) was among the best we have ever experienced. He was as informative as anyone we have met and was more than willing to answer every question. He let us set the pace and go to places we wanted and also not go if we were not interested. He is very kind and thoughtful and fun to be with.
