The medina is a must see for any visitor to Tangier. However, you must be accompanied with a guide to help you navigate the medina streets and alleyways and avoid getting lost.

This is a particularly beautiful medina...but because medinas are easy to get lost in, you may want to hire a bona fide guide (check with your hotel or agent).
