A fantastic place to walk

Purposefully get lost. Don't follow the tourist tracks, just start walking and turn corners at a whim. Don't panic, you'll eventually find your way back, but you'll find some... read more

See my review of the Petit Socco for details. Location for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive. Watch out for the guides.

This is perfect to walk slowly around and enjoy the daily life in Tangier. Its many good shops and restaurant. The people are very nice and you will see a lot of funny happenings. Its like being in a movie. Sit down at a coffee shop and enjoy. Recommended.

My niece and I (two Senior Citizens) were excited about coming here. We read all aboout it before hand so we would know what to expect. We're getting fairly good at doing our own tours. Yes, there were men who pestered us right off the ferry but we were resolute and continued on to the nearby Medina. We were on... More

Rick Steves was once again correct! We contacted a few guides and the first one to respond was Abdellatif, "Latif", and we are SO glad he did! He purchased the ferry tickets and met us at the port and our day of fun started! We went site seeing, he got us to our hotel, and made our arrangements for the... More

Knowing Fes and Marrakech the medina of Tangier really doesn't have much of an atmosphere. You can see a lot of tourists in groups rushing through and also the drug dealing is very obvious. Nevertheless you can shop for some moroccan treasures and eat some delicious sweets :)

Purposefully get lost. Don't follow the tourist tracks, just start walking and turn corners at a whim. Don't panic, you'll eventually find your way back, but you'll find some hidden gems as well!

If your idea of a perfect vacation is Disneyland, don't go to Tangier. If you are easily intimidated, don't go to Tangier. I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to experience a different culture but there is a degree of culture shock and annoyance in the relentless touts that attack you as soon as you get off the ferry. Overall it was... More

Had no intentions of doing so, but it is a souvenir along with a story that I will cherish forever. My rug was small enough to pack and carry home. We were approached by a man offering his time at no charge to guide us through. In April there are very few American tourists there let alone English speaking locals... More
