Description

Discover the blue-painted town of Chefchaouen in Morocco’s Rif Mountains on a private 7-hour trip from Tangier. Take a walking tour of the 'medina' (old quarter), filled with houses painted blue and white, a tradition derived from Spanish settlers in medieval times. Absorb the Moorish and Spanish atmosphere, see the 18th-century 'kasbah' (fortress), mosque, and main square, and enjoy free time to eat, stroll, and shop at the souks.

Depart your Tangier hotel by private, air-conditioned vehicle with your guide, and travel southeast to Chefchaouen, in the rugged Rif Mountains. Established in 1471 when Moulay Ali Ben Moussa Ben Rached El Alami constructed a kasbah here, Chefchaouen is famed for its blue-painted walled medina, giving it the nickname of the ‘Blue Pearl.’ The blue palette derives from the 15th century, when the town attracted exiles from Spain. Arriving Jewish refugees fleeing the Spanish Inquisition painted their houses blue to reflect their divinity — a tradition that continued through the centuries. On arrival, enjoy a walking tour through Chefchaouen’s cobbled medina, absorbing the Moorish and Spanish atmosphere. Admire the striking blue-and-white houses and visit the 18th-century kasbah (own expense), with its tower, garden, and museum. See the central mosque and mellah, the former Jewish quarter, and absorb the sights around the bustling Utta El Hamam main square. Take a break for lunch (own expense) at any of the cafes and enjoy free time to explore the souks for unique Rif souvenirs. Peruse the shops for everything from colorful woven blankets, clothes, and rugs to chunky Berber jewelry, leatherware, and more. Lastly, return to Tangier, where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

The driver was very prompt in picking us up. He drove safely and didn't waste our time stopping at places along the way that we weren't interested in. The guide in the Blue City was very good and took us to see the highlights. Of course he directed us to his buddy's carpet store and restaurant for lunch but that's to be expected. The town is super small but I'd recommend staying for a few nights if you want to wander at your own pace.
