The only thing that lets Tangier down is the annoying street vendors who try and sell you a load of junk following you down the street. They just don't take 'no' for an answer. I understand that they need to make money but it spoils the enjoyment and concentration of the streets main shops. There are great views across to... More

The narrow streets, tons of small stores hawking merchandise (some of it very good, some of it touristy and trashy), the crush of crowds, even the "tour guides" who try to latch onto you are all parts of the experience. Be a bit assertive and continue to say "no thank you" politely and firmly as folks try to guide you... More

I recommend this place if you are going with a friend or with a tour, if you're traveling solo be careful for the annoying street vendors that are difficult to get rid of. But once you are with a friend, especially someone local, the experience can be amazing. The markets provide a variety of items to shop at a really... More

I strongly recommend to visit Medina of Tangier when you are touring Morocco 🇲🇦. We can't stoped taking lots... More

All the shops and narrow streets were an amazing experience where you could find rare herbs and oils. The only downside were the very aggressive street peddlers who were constantly in your face and would not accept no thank you as an answer

We took the ferry from Tarifa, Spain to the Port in Tangier for a day trip to see The Medina. (It was originally supposed to be an overnight trip, but the ferry was cancelled the day before due to stormy weather). After getting there, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as this didn't turn out to be... More

An incredible experience, a labyrinth of narrow streets.. find the veggie, meat and fish markets, unforgettable for the senses! Berber market - only on Sundays. If you are in Tangiers, GO! Although we have travelled quite a lot and never with a guide, I was traveling with my 11 and 13 yr old sons, alone. We hired a private tour,... More

Beware of the up in your face street beggars. Very much of a cultural shock for my family. Even taking a tour the locals are very aggressive and do not except no for an answer. You give money to one and it is like a swarm of bees that surround you for money and to buy stuff.

Wow. This place is a real challenge to the senses. Easy to get disoriented. The sights, sounds and smells are something else. We went three times but always with a guide. It was easier to take in small doses. The group tour was okay but preferred our private guide. A must see in daylight.
