Detailed Itinerary 4 Days Tangier Tour

Day 1: Tangier and the Blue City of Chefchaouen

  • Welcome to Tangier—the gateway between Europe and Africa. Located close to the south of Spain,
  • travel straight on to the blue-washed city of Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains.
  • Enjoy the scenic route, stopping along the way to take pictures for souvenirs.
  • explore the nearby kasbah (old fortification) and tour the garden, museum, and some of the old prison cells.
  • Follow a path outside of the city walls to the riad and climb to the rooftop to enjoy a panoramic view of the Blue City.
  • For the slightly more athletic, follow the street east to pass over the Ras el Ma Spring and ascend the path (20-30 minutes) until you reach the abandoned white Spanish Mosque.
  • Enjoy one last view over Chefchaouen as the sun sets behind the mountains.

 

Day 2: Exploring Fes

  • Rise early to snap photos of the people-less streets before leaving for Fes.
  • Stop along the way at the UNESCO protected Volubilis ruins—the Roman's farthest reach in Africa.
  • Wander the complex, exploring merchant homes with still-intact heating systems, temples, and many mosaics in situ.
  • Continue on to the smaller, less busy version of Fes, Meknes, for an introduction to a historic imperial city.
  • The two main points of interest are the Ville Impériale (Imperial City) and the medina.
  • Be sure to visit the Bab al-Mansour gate, the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, and the Royal Stables.
  • Continue on to Fes. With its impressively large (and somewhat confusing) old medina, Fes is a city worth getting lost in.
  • Before venturing into the medina, take the time to visit the Merenid Tombs located just north of the city and enjoy the all-encompassing view of historic Fes and the surrounding area.
  • Descend the hill and return to your riad (a traditional Moroccan house with an interior garden) for the evening.

Day 3: Exploring Fes

  • after breakfast in your riad
  • Meet your experienced City guide who will take you to explore the oldest Medina in Morocco.

Day 4: Tangier via Rabat

  • Explore the Chellah Necropolis fortification in the heart of the city and wander its Roman and Islamic ruins.
  • Enter through the grand door of the Kasbah des Oudaias into Rabat's old city center.
  • From there, visit the 20th-century Andalusian Gardens and enjoy the serene space away from the crowds.
  • Discover the Hassan Tower, a minaret of the incomplete mosque and Mausoleum of Mohamed V.
  • back to Tangier
  • end of your 4 Days Tangier Tour
