    • Left luggage lockers in Tarifa or Algeciras?

      by Ntb111 Online Now Sep 4, 2013 at 8:36 AM

      I'm travelling through Spain with a suitcase (average size, approx 14 kilograms). Was hoping to catch a ferry to tangier and then trek down through fez, Marrakech, and then back to tangier; however didn't want to take my suitcase (I have a small sized shoulder bag I can use for a weeks worth of travelling in morocco). I was wondering, are there any places in Spain, prior to the ferry that have left luggage services, maintaining the luggage for 6-7 days? I have read that the Algeciras train station does not have left luggage services.

      Thanks in advance

      Marrakech - Tangier - Algeciras

      by lgh Online Now Aug 16, 2013 at 11:12 AM

      Dear fellow travellers,

      My friend and I have made some adjustments in our itinerary so instead of going southbound from Spain to Morocco, we will be arriving first in Casablanca and moving up north to Spain. We plan on taking an overnight train from Marrakech to Tangier arriving in the morning around 7AM and then catch a ferry from Tangier med to Algeciras at 10AM to catch on a last train (3:30PM) from Algeciras to Granada. This presumably will work assuming a punctual train, transit bus from Tangier train station to Tangier Med and ferry time as per schedule. As this is my first trip, I am not sure how accurate are the time schedules in reality. Is this a doable plan or should we schedule to leave early afternoon from Marrakesh and stay overnight at Tangier to catch morning ferry?

      Separately, would it be safe for ladies to ride on the overnight train and use taxi (if required) should we need to take a taxi to Tangier Med from Tangier train station given the tight schedule? I have read mixed messages in regards to women travelling in Morocco so best to anticipate ahead for safety precautions.

      Grateful for any info or suggestions that will help us in finalizing this leg of our trip to Morocco and Spain.

      Cheers, lgh

      Granada to Tangier

      by lgh Online Now Jun 8, 2013 at 1:30 PM

      Hi all,

      Would be grateful if anyone can share travel tips/advise on how best to reach Tangier from Granada.
      Is it better to take ferry from Algeciras to Tangier Med or take a train to Malaga and continue by bus to Tarifa and then take a ferry to Tangier? We will be using a travel guide in Tangier as we hope the chance of being hassled will be minimized this way. Will it be relatively easy to get tickets on the same day for overnight train to Marrakesh from Tangier for early October? Hopefully it is not a peak season or holiday season in Morocco. Thanks before hand.

      Dear Morocco experts,

      I'm getting the ferry to Tangier from Tarifa in a couple of weeks (then a train from there to Rabat).

      Any tips for coping with:

      - passport / customs procedures?
      - orientation on arrival in the port?
      - changing money?
      - useful French or Arabic phrases?

      Thank you!

    • Spain-Tangier ferry as a passenger, mid-June

      by peter1n Online Now Apr 30, 2011 at 8:38 AM

      The ferry routes over to Tangier (Tanger) from Tarifa & Algeciras seem to be well price-controlled - that's to say it's quite expensive as a foot passenger: 37 euros one way I think for the 35 minute crossing. I'm wondering if there are any bus or coach services operating from locations in southern Spain that have interesting pricing. Eurolines is the only one I found but their quoted prices are quite high too.

      Getting to Marrakesh from Tangier

      I an trying to plan a short trip to Barcelona and Marrakesh- spending about 3 days in each city. I'm interested in the night train and am looking for information on cost, timing and if I can get a ticket online or the day I arrive at Tangier. Hoping to go in late February.

      Also concerned about luggage as I like to travel with a larger hard case with wheels. I know from past international trips that's difficult. I'm traveling with my husband- might be better to take 2 smaller cases.

      Any advice is appreaciated!

      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, I have just read a report by Barbski dated in 2008 about using a 'walking tour' when in Tangier. Does anyone know where and how to find one of these tours when we leave the ferry from Spain. I think we would much prefer to join a few other people for a couple of hours checking out the medina etc. rather than go by ourselves with a guide...many reports seem say this can often lead to just being taken to carpet shops etc for the hard sell.
