Thinking about Shore Excursions in Morocco brings to one’s mind the area where The Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea near Tangiers, the vivid images of the old medinas, the bustling souks, the Atlas Mountains and the Amazigh (Berber) villages. Whether your cruising itinerary allows you few hours only or few days debarkation off the ship, our destination management company, Toudgha Voyages, has more than something for you.
Toudgha Voyages cruising excursions take the cities of Tangier, Casablanca and Agadir their places of departure. The three cities have very large ports and almost all the main cruising ships heading to Morocco land in one of these ports. What’s interesting about Tangier, Casablanca and Agadir is that our shore excusrions leaving from their ports cover the whole parts of Morocco.
Starting from Tangier, disembarking off the ship for few hours only enables you to discover this amazing city that has long been romanticized by artists, poets and writers. Tangier was once homeland for Paul Bowles, Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote, F. Saint Laurent, etc. Today, the city is a cosmopolitan mix of African and European influences because it is Morocco’s main maritime gateway both to Europe and Africa. The city has a charming medina (old city) which is a lively place with alleyways fiiled with shops and cafes. While in Tangier, try not to miss a cup of mint tea at Café Hafa, a historical cafe overlooking the Bay of Tangier. The café was opened in 1921 and since then, it has been visited by numerous writers and singers, from Paul Bowles and William S. Burroughs, to The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. If you have few days in Tangier, you will be able to go as far as Fes, Chefchaouen, Asilah, Rabat, Tetouan and Houceima. In short, our shore excursions from Tangier cover the whole north of Morocco.
Debarking off your cruise ship from Casablanca, you will have different options coverning the middle of the country. Few hours free time gives you the chance to discover Casablanca, Morocco’s largest citiy and its economic capital. Enjoy the inside guided tour of Hassan II Mosque, The Habous Quarter souks, Abderrahman Slaoui Foundation and the ville nouvelle (the new city). Few overnights at leisure in Casablanca give you the possibilities to travel inland as far as Fes, Marrakech, Rabat, El Jadida, Tangier and Essaouira. In fact, Casablanca is ideally located to cover shore excursions heading both to the north and the south of Morocco.
The port of Agadir is our third option for cruising excursions in Morocco. The city of Agadir is situated in the South of Morocco, and over the years, it has become one of the leading destinations for international tourism. Agadir has a very particular imprtance thanks to its closeness to the Sahara desert, Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Taroudant and Essaouira. Agadir is also famous for its excellent surfing spots with accredited surf schools and its fantastic bird and animals watching in the National Souss Massa Park.
