DAY 1: FEZ - TANGIER
This fascinating Moroccan city has many of the things that travelers love to explore in the sense of interesting history, exotic mystery, and unspoiled beaches.
Located in northern Morocco this city is the result of an uncontrolled mix of North Africa, Spain, Portugal and France without forgetting that it was under a joint international control until 1956.
Tangier is separated from Spain by the 20 miles of the Strait of Gibraltar so frequent you will be witnessing ferries make the short crossing from Europe each day, and many cruise ships sailing between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic which often include this city as a port of call.
There are many things that we suggest you to do while you are here and your driver will make sure to take you to all the places you need to visit and assist you with valuable information that can make a serious difference in your travelling experience.
You will get a half day tour taking you to visit most of the important sightseeing of the city so you can have a better idea about the place and also to facilitate your walking around the city on your own.
From the places we recommend you to visit will be the “Tangier American Legation Museum”; a prosperous cultural center, museum, conference center and library in the heart of the old medina. It is housed in the only historic landmark of the United States located abroad. The museum exhibits a large collection of art and historical items. It also has a Paul Bowles Wing dedicated to the writer and composer who lived most of his adult life in Tangier. Your tour will also take you to the tomb of “Ibn Battuta”, a 14th century famous traveler who was born in this city, then we go onward to “The Kasbah Museum”, the previous Sultan's palace which deserves to be seen not only for its collection of artifacts from the Phoenician to modern times, but also for the building and garden.
Once your tour is over we will be heading to your hotel or riad where you will be spending the night and enjoying a nice dinner.
DAY 2: TANGIER - CHEFCHAOUEN
Once your driver picks you up from your hotel or riad we will be heading to the exotic city of Chefchaouen or the blue town like many people calls it. You will have a private guide taking you all over the most important sightseeing of this place and offer you a detailed explanation about the history of each visited part.
Chefchaouen is situated in the Rif Mountains and represents a popular tourist destination because of its proximity to Tangier and the Spanish commune. It is one of the prettiest towns in Morocco, considered to be an artsy, blue-washed mountain village that feels like a part of another world. It is considered as a popular shopping destination as well as it offers many native handicrafts that are not available elsewhere in Morocco.
Your tour will be including the old medina which is a delight of the Moroccan and Andalucian influence with red-tiled roofs, bright-blue buildings and narrow lanes converging on busy Plaza, Uta hammam and its restored Kasbah and also a ruined mosque built by the Spanish, with stairs still in the tower.
Once your tour is over we will be taking you to your hotel or riad where you will be spending the night and enjoying a great dinner.
DAY 3: CHEFCHAOUEN – FEZ VIA MEKNES &VOLUBILIS
After your breakfast in your hotel we will be saying good bye to this blue town and heading back to Fez but to offer you a greater idea about the Moroccan patrimony we will be travelling via Meknes and Volubilis or as it’s referred to it now by “Oualili”.
Once we get to Volubilis we will be making a quick stop by this site and larn more about it.
It was recently recognized by the UNESCO as a world heritage site for its breathtaking archeological sites standing still and proving the greatness of the Roman Empire ornamented with stunning mosaics and colorful strips.
Once this tour is over we will head to Meknes which is the second imperial city of morocco which considered being the achievements of one of the supreme Sultans in the history of Morocco, “Moulay Ismail”. Through this visit you will be getting the chance to discover all what this imperial city has to offer with its several tall minarets, massive extension of walls and monumental gates passing through Bab el Khemis and the old medina to get to the Islamic cemetery which takes us to the entrance of the old Mellah or like it’s known “the Jewish Quarter”, and before leaving Meknes we will be stopping by one of the most important and beautiful gateway of the city which is Bab el Mansour.
Your driver will be dropping you at Fez which is your last destination and we hope you had a great time with us.
