Discover highlights of the kasbah on this half-day adventure that serves as a wonderful introduction to Tangier. Board the motorcoach for the short drive to the kasbah, located at the highest point of the medina. Disembark and set off on a narrated walk through Bab Haha gate to enter the kasbah on the Place du Mechouar. Your guide will lead you on an uphill walk, highlighting key buildings and sharing facts about this historic area, largely unchanged since Roman times. Once the home of the sultan and his harem, today it is a residential area. Visit the Kasbah Museum to learn more about the kasbah (fort) neighborhood and peruse the displays, mosaics and traditional courtyard. Continue your stroll through the medina (old town) and discover the Grand Socco, a lively marketplace where local color is on display and the scent of spices in the air. Pause for a refreshment, then reboard the motorcoach for a short drive to Saint Andrew's Church, an Anglican house of worship decorated in high Fassi style. With a camera filled with memories, return to the ship.
