Our associate company, Flandria Bus, are the experts in excursions to Morocco, with coaches and guides based both here on the Costa de Sol and in North Africa. Over the last few years they have developed a good range of excursions, of differing lengths and prices, as an alternative to the normal one or two day excursions which only go to the international city of Tangiers. For those who would like to see more of this fascinating country Flandria are the people to speak to. Outline details of all of their excursions are given below and, if you want more information telephone the number given and you will be able to speak with Elaine, a native English speaker who can answer all your questions and make the necessary arrangements for you.
1. The Moroccan Experience - 1 Day
A real alternative to the normal one day excursion to Tangiers. We take the ferry to Ceuta and then travel across the border into Morocco and then on to the Berber Souk where the Berber tribe come to trade their traditional fruits, vegetables, cloth, spices, meats and other local produce native to the region. This fantastic colourful and aromatic market is full of atmosphere and excitement. This visit is followed by a scenic tour of Tetuans modern area and a typical Moroccan lunch, with entertainment, in an old palace within the ancient city walls.
Price: 79 euros
2. Ceuta - 2 Days (Saturday & Sunday)
Ceuta is a Spanish city on the North African coast which , in addition to it's fascinating history and marvellous climate is also a duty free port. Unusually, for this excursion, and to keep the cost down, you make your own way to Algeciras where you are met by the Flandria guide to help you board the fast ferry straight to Ceuta. The price includes your stay in the 4* Hotel Tryp, a guided tour of the city, dinner, breakfast, a visit to, and tour of, Tetuan including the Medina and Kasbah and a traditional Moroccan lunch, with entertainment.
Price: 99 euros per person in a double room.
3. Magic in Morocco - 3 Days (Friday - Sunday)
This is a fully inclusive excursion with the exception of lunches, which are optional on all three of the days. The coach picks up all along the coast and then travels to Algeciras for the fast ferry to Ceuta. The first day involves a visit to Tetuan, known as the Jewel of the Rif. After a night in a 4* hotel and breakfast the tour leaves for a visit to Chaouen, a typical mountain village in the Rif mountains also known as The Holy Town. In the afternoon we travel to Tangiers and the second hotel. In the evening there is an option to attend the Morocco Palace for an evening of the best in local music and folklore entertainment. The third day provides an opportunity to tour Tangiers, including the Medina and Kasbah, visit Spartel Cape, where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean and marvel at the Grotto of Hercules.
Price: 189 euros per person in a double room.
4. Viva Marrakech - 5 Days (Wednesday - Sunday)
Another fully inclusive excursion with the exception of lunches and optional entrance to the Gran Mosque in Casablanca. Over the five days we spend time in Casablanca, Marrakech and Rabat, the capital of Morocco. We also visit the marine village of Asilah which has been attracting poets, writers and artists from all over the world for many years. Perhaps the highlight of this excursion in the visit to the world famous Jemaa el Fna Square which has been featured on countless holiday programmes. The sights and aromas in this square will amaze everyone as will the singers, dancers, jugglers, fortune tellers, snake charmers, story tellers and fire-eaters who perform there every night.
Price: 399 euros per person in a double room.
5. The Imperial Cities - 7 Days (Sunday - Saturday)

These are the major towns and cities of the country and are full of famous palaces and other places of interest.
