Hi,

Would help if you said "where from".

Re: Tangier For the Day

yes exactly - but if youre coming from Spain then get on a boat to Tangier and do the day yourself - if its handy to get to Tarifa then even better to catch the fast ferry from there which only takes 35 minutes to get over - but the buses to get to Tarifa from Algeciras are a pain - its good/the best coming back that way as they have buses waiting at the ferry terminal for each ferry arriving from Tangier to take you the half an hour or so to Algeciras included int he ticket price - which is cheaper than the ferries Algeciras to Tangier which can take up to 2 and a half hours!!

you have info here and you have all the sights in the Lonely planet - even the one for Europe covers a good amount of Morocco so would do for a day to Morocco - or buy a Footprints latest edition if you think youll be back - though Tangier couldput you off for coming back again!

but good preparation and understanding that there is hassle just say no thanks or la shukran and look like you are fine and comfortable without them and where youre going youll be fine

you could get an official guide when you get there but you could do it yourself.

After seeing the sights of Tangier you could get a taxi to say the Grotto of Hercules which is an interesting visit and gets you to see a bit of countryside or if you were really good get in a grande taxi from the bus station/grande taxi station and go to Asilah for 2 hours. only 25-30 dirham a seat - you can buy extra seats to help the taxi leave sooner as they wait for all 6 seats to fill. and its easy to get a taxi back again.

If you are really nervous about doing it yourself even with an official guide when you get there then by all means take the day tour but the brochures of the one and same day trip plied from the Spain to Tangier area i thought they looked pretty expensive for what there is - and you will end up in a carpet shop for an hour or two id be sure!

Re: Tangier trip

by samkachmar

Hey,
hope you can help,
planing a trip to Tangier at the end of Dec, 29th to 9th Jan,
if you know of any website to organize a trip staying at different locations,
perhaps 2/3 day in each location, starting in Tangier, Fes, Agadir, or Casablanca.
not necessarily in that order.
most travel agents offer a trip to one destination only.
any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi you could contact VTer Fouad - his VT name Travolta159 who does tours and hireage with grande taxi and lives in Fez - drop him aline via his home page and see if hes available - not a lot better than doing it with a local that is known and recommended!

Travel Tips for Tangier

Architecture and Customs

by akskibunny

I loved the architecture, especially at the mosques. The Arabic influences are beautiful. Seek out the colorful tile work and scrolling iron work. My favorite times of the day were the call-to-prayer. When the deep, melodic voice resonates throughout the town, the faithful cease their personal errands and devote time to prayer.

Camel Photo Op

by grandmaR

I went to Tangier on a day trip from Tormelinos. My mom had been, so she stayed behind. We took a bus to the ferry and we had different guides on the African side. First they took us to the Forbes Museum and then they stopped at this place to give us a chance to ride some camels. I felt I was too large especially for this little camel, so someone took one of my cameras and just took my photo with the camel.

CARPET DEMONSTRATION

by LoriPori

We were in for a treat. We walked into a huge room with walls covered with the most beautiful carpets. We all sat down on little wooden stools while a salesman gave us a CARPET DEMONSTRATION and explained to us all the different kinds of rugs and what to look for when purchasing a rug. If you decided to buy one, they would ship it home for you. Will that be Master Card or Visa?

THE KASBAH

by LoriPori

The square near THE KASBAH fronts the former Sultan's Palace, which is now a museum of art and architecture.
Tangier's 17th century fortified residential quarter, the Kasbah is the highest point of the city and on a clear day it is possible to see the Spanish city of Tarifa.

Please do no photograph!

by hquittner

There is a superstition among some elderly Europeans and many of the simpler people of the world that the taking of a photograph potentially captures part of the "soul" of a person or a religious object. Thus they avoid being photographed (and may object strenuously). This "evil intent" by tourists is often seen in churches where worshippers as well as custodians may warn you off. It occurs in more sophisticated venues where the excuse is that you cannot violate a copyright. I have experienced this in restricted sites like at the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, of course the Sistine Chapel, Brancacci Chapel(I think Sony has bought the copyrights for all of these) . The most interesting was being stopped from photographing Tiffany stained glass windows in a chapel near Sea Island Georgia. In a palace in Istanbul and one or two other places (I can recall a tapestry museum in Beauvais) they are sophisticated enough to sell you an extra fee photography permit. The worst is in the Museum of Art in my hometown (New Orleans) where I am a high level annual sponsor and to whom I have given a 50K painting (that is stored in the basement); no photography is allowed here,even for my own use as an elderly sponsor for review at home. So I will not volunteer to be a docent. In contrast many museums are putting their collections on line, even as they sell CD's. Many museums have become hoarding collectors no better than the drug lords who buy stolen works we all want to see. C'est la vie!
