On Saturday morning breakfast is served at 8:00 and at 9:00 you leave the hotel, towards the city center to begin the visit to the Medina and make the currency exchange.
Medina means “ancient city” and is located in the upper part of the city surrounded by a century-old seven-door wall. The Medina is a fantastic labyrinth of narrow streets, full of sound, smells, flavors and colors where people come and go to make their purchases, there we find people from the Rif mountains dressed in their typical straw hats and colored tassels and their “futas” or striped blankets that women use as a pareo, people who go down to the souk to sell their products daily, such as vegetables, fruits or birds and thus acquire other necessities that are lacking in the mountains such as Tea, sugar, oil or fuel.
During the entire visit to the medina that lasts approximately 3 hours, the groups are accompanied by a local guide who gives explanations in both Spanish and English, as well as an assistance staff that is always pending the group .
At the end of the visit of the medina, a sample of handicrafts and carpets from the country is offered in a bazaar where the different manufacturing techniques and models of carpets and kilims are explained. Lunch takes place in a typical Moroccan restaurant, where you will taste the most characteristic dishes of native cuisine such as harera, couscous, kebab and mint tea accompanied by pastry.
After lunch, departure to Tangier always accompanied by a local guide, in a journey of approximately one hour, and panoramic tour of the city.
Tangier is a cosmopolitan city, where cultures are mixed and where even today you can see the Spanish colonial roots and the different influences that have shaped their personality for centuries.
After visiting the center of the town, you reach Cape Espartel, a point from which you can clearly see the coast of Spain and the fantastic beaches of Tangier as well as the meeting point between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
Upon our return we pass through an important residential area where the villas and palaces of some personalities are located, including those of his Majesty Mohamed VI, King of Morocco or King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, then we will visit the old town of Tangier.
