First, visit Chefchaouen, one of the most attractive places of the north of Morocco,
stands between the Rif Mountains as a small piece of Andalucía, what coupled with
the blue houses confers a special allure to the city. This idiosyncrasy can be noticed in
its cobblestone streets, its restaurants, its craft shops and its peace, what makes
Chaouen a faithful reflection of the essence of the north of Africa.
Then, visit the history-steeped town of Tetouan near Morocco’s Mediterranean coast
on this private day trip from Tangier. With a private guide, soak up the Moroccan-
Spanish flavour of this mountainside town, and hear about its Andalucian-influenced
past and culture. Explore the UNESCO-listed ‘medina’ (old quarter), considered one of
Morocco’s best-preserved, admire the whitewashed residences and colonial-era
architecture of the new town, and enjoy free time to explore, eat, and souvenir-hunt
in the souks and shops.
Depart your Tangier hotel by private, climate-controlled minivan with your guide and
travel to Tetouan, a beautiful town set near the Mediterranean, beneath the Rif
Mountains. The city of Chefchaouen is not-to-be -missed element of any tour of
northern Morocco. On arrival, take a walking tour of the town’s highlights. Stop for
lunch (own expense) at any of the charming restaurants and Then we will move to
Tetouan, this city was the capital of Morocco’s Spanish Protectorate from 1912 to 1956, and boasts a distinctive Hispanic flavour. At its heart is a mountainside
UNESCO-listed medina and whitewashed new town graced with palm-lined
boulevards, mosques, and Spanish colonial-era architecture. On arrival, drink in the
Spanish-infused atmosphere and enter the walled medina, still largely untouched
from the 17th century. Walk the cobbled lanes past faded townhouses and painted
doorways, and discover the former Jewish and Spanish quarters as you hear how
Tetouan was founded here in the 1400s by Jewish and Muslim refugees fleeing
Andalusia. Learn about local life and culture, and walk through the modern town to
see landmarks such as the royal palace, mosques, palm-fringed squares, and Spanish-
style buildings. Stop for lunch. The tour concludes with a hotel drop-off in Tangier.
