ITINERARY

In the morning, you will meet with Muhammad whose mission is to allow you to experience authentically Tetouan and Chefchaouen.

Head for Tetouan that is adjacently located to Tangier. Tetouan is always called “The White Dove” alluding the name to its white color and to the hospitality of its inhabitants. It played a major role in the Islamic Period because it served as a point of connection between Morocco and Andalusia.

Tetouan was rebuilt by the refugees who had been expelled from Andulsia after the Reconquest and this fact is illustrated in the architecture. The city has been classified as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO and major efforts have been made to maintain the preservation and authenticity of the city. Your guide will show you the best of Tetouan including the vibrant Souks, the fountains, Shrines, Mosques, Funduks and much more.

You will resume your journey to the beautiful city of Chefchaouen. Upon arrival, your tour guide will escort you for a nice walking tour to fully come to terms with the best highlights of Chefchaouen. It’s one of the prettiest towns in Morocco, the name of Chefchaouen or “Chaouen” is derived from the shape of the mountain’s tops in which it’s nestled.

Chefchaouen was founded in 1471 as a small fortress to fight the Portuguese of northern Morocco. It has become popular thanks to its unique ambience, location and above all the blue-washed color by which it is painted. The walking tour will include a visit to the Kasbah built by Moulay Ismail, the Uta El Hammam that is located at the heart of the city and known for its vibrant and lined cafes. Walk from there through the beautiful and clean alleyways to the Ras El Ma Spring to enjoy the panoramic view of the whole valley. In the afternoon, you may want to spend some time people watching while enjoying a mint tea.
