If the Visualforce page says in the apex:page tag: tabstyle="CustomTab__Tab" or similar, then it will give an error.

Remove the tabstyle part of the page tag in the page, and then delete the tab.

That sounds unusual that the visualforce page is referencing the tab when you try to delete the tab. Could you post up the exact error?

If the page is somehow referencing the tab then you could just delete the content of the page so it saves as just an empty visualforce page. Then you should be able to delete the tab followed by the visualforce page.

The other option would be to use the migration tools and create a destructiveChanges.xml file that contains both the tab and the page. More details on this here
