Posts Tagged ‘fresh fruit market tanger’

The quick trip to Tanger was done thru the port at Algeciras.  The return fare is 66 euros or one way 37.50 bought separately. We went by fast ferry from Algeciras to Tanger.  First let me give you the inside scoop.  When you arrive at the Ferry terminal, there will be guys there trying to get you to park under the bridge and buy your ticket thru them.. They will quote 20 euros a day parking.. its only 23 in the official lot.  Plus they will try and tell you that the ticket offices are closed due to a fiesta… The ticket offices Never close, these guys are just gonna take your money and then your car in all likely hood will be either towed or broken into.. Don’t do it.

Now, we took the fast ferry, which still managed to take 2.5 hours.. they say and hour..never gonna happen. I have done the crossing 3 times, and 2.5 is about the norm..if not longer depending on the seas.

When you arrive at the port on the other side, there will be gentlemen that will try and take you to a hotel get you a taxi etc.. these guys are a great idea.. most are licensed, so they won’t see any harm come to you.  They will also offer to be your guide, but they will try and charge crazy money.  The truth is, you don’t need a guide in Tanger, everything is walking distance, and a taxi to anywhere in town is 5 euros.. so use them if you get tired.  Confirm price prior to commencement of your journey.

I have a lot of photos to show you, so without further ado here they are.
