Tangier: City Highlights Discovery Tour
- Pickup available
- Duration: 6 hours
With only a few days in in Tangier I had hoped to see its sites and learn a bit about the city but after taking this tour not only were these goals met in full but I also experienced the character and soul of this wonderful place. Omar brought to life the history, the culture and the heart of these wonderful people. We were picked up in a modern, clean, Mercedes van at our hotel for the trip to Asilah and Cape Spartel feeling comfortable and safe at all times with Monsif’s driving. Later we had a delightful traditional lunch at a local restaurant in Tangier. The meal was inexpensive and very good. In the afternoon we continued in Tangier from the Medina to the hills overlooking the city with its beautiful views. The tour was in English which Omar had a perfect command and was very accommodating to mold the tour to our tastes and interests. I have been on many tours around the world and this ranks as one of the best. I would recommend him and this tour to anyone.
Our visit was very good, although we didnt know that it was the last days of Ramadan when we reserved... but that was absolutely no problem. Our guide, a kind and friendly Muslim man named Abdul, fasted faithfully all day, both food and water, while making our experience top notch and answering every question knowledgably and in as much detail as we wanted. He was very watchful over us, both in terms of our general safety, and our dealings with the local merchants, to be sure we got a fair shake. He only left for a short period while we ate lunch at a restaurant which only served tourists during the day during Ramadan. Food, drink, and all of our purchases were quite satifactory, and genuine. Tusen takk, Abdul.
Excellent 6 hour tour. Everything was worth seeing. Comfortable, went at our own pace, not rushed. When we were drawn to something, the guide gave us the freedom to explore, or we could ask to see something and he took us there, such as a beautiful Jewish Synagogue down a tiny alley in the Médina which we never would have found on our own.
Rashid was at the dock waiting for us, as requested. He was very well informed as he had a great interest in history. We had a great day and would not hesitate to recommend Rashid or Get Your Guide.
Driver Younes is wonderful, guide Aziz is fabulous, the whole tour is the tour of dream. Enjoy it very much with couscous and b’stilla and soup.
