We stayed at Tarifa for two days , so we booked the Frs ferry and one day culture tour from Tarifa to Tangier. Ferry trip return trip took 2hrs ; The actual tour time was about 3 hrs , lunch 1hr and free and easy shopping time 1hr. The tour was not so attractive compare to our Gibraltar day trip ( just day before)which was much more enjoyable !

We booked this trip online by the website of FRS ferry from Tarifa to Tangier. In my case, I booked just for 2 persons and parked the car at Tarifa port because when you book a car it will cost you too high. If you park the car in the area of Tarifa port parking then you have a little discount when you will show your ferry ticket at the time of payments. FRS ferry I found very smooth and fast. Normally according to the schedule, it will take 1 hours from Tarifa to Tangier but it will take 45 minutes for crossing. There are some types of passport controls there. One when you take a ticket from the FRS ferry counter, then before entering the ship. There are 2 types of embankment cards White and Yellow. You have to fill White for going to Tanger and you must hand over to the Moroccan passport control in the ship and yellow color for returning and give to the passport control on the port of Tangier. It was surprising for us to see the passport control in the ship first-time experience like this, I want to tell you that be careful from the touts in Morocco who are waiting for money from you please.

We had originally booked a tour to Tanger and it was cancelled so we rang these guys and managed to book another one. It was a bit of a trek on the bus from Cadiz to Tarifa to get the ferry but was well worth it. There’s some touristy stuff but it’s a good whistle stop tour and gives you a flavour. The Spanish guide was lively, really helpful and even managed to get us off the ferry quickly when it was delayed as we were going to miss the last bus back to Cadiz so thank you! We had a amazing day.

We rented a car and took the ferry across. did not want to ride the bus from Malaga, too long of a trip in the bus. The guide from the boat was very good. Made sure all had gotten visas on the boat. Our guide in Tangiers was very good. He was very friendly and answered all the questions we had. You have the option of going to the spice shop after lunch, I would skip this. The lunch was delicious and we had a great conversation with others at our table. My daughter was very uncomfortable with the persistence of the vendors following you in the street trying to sell you gifts, no way to get around that, just don't start a conversation with them if you don't want them hounding you. All in all we are happy we took this tour and would recommend to others.

Went from Spain to Morocco on a rather rough sea but the ride onboard was excellent so was the duty free shopping.
A week later heading back to Spain the sea was like glass so a very smooth ride and in good time.
