What you can expect
With this tour, you will discover Tetouan and Chefchaouen. 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 flavor 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 we will move to Tetouan, this city was the capital of Morocco’s Spanish Protectorate from 1912 to 1956. 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, 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. The tour concludes with a hotel drop-off in Tangier.
