Upon arriving in Tangier, you will be greeted by your tour guide at the port, airport, or your accommodation. You will then embark on an excursion to explore the city of Tangier and its surroundings, starting with a road trip to the nearby city of Tetouan via the Rif mountain. In Tetouan, known as the "white dove of North Morocco", you will have the opportunity to see the main attractions of the small medina. Next, you will head to Chefchaouen where you will make a stop at the Waterfalls of Akchour for a 2-3 hour hike. Once in Chefchaouen, you can take a break and grab a meal at Plaza Outa el Hammam while observing the local scene. In the afternoon, you will discover the charming scenery of Chefchaouen's narrow streets, take lovely photos and visit traditional local markets. As the day ends, you will be able to witness the spectacular sunset above the mountains and enjoy your first night of the 3-day tour from Tangier.
On this day of the tour, you will have the opportunity to visit two imperial cities, Meknes and Fes. Start the day early to take pictures in the streets with fewer people, and then head to Fes. Along the way, you will make a stop at the UNESCO-protected Roman ruins of Volubilis. These ruins, which served as the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Mauritania, were established in the third century BC and were an important location for the Roman Empire. Though the structures are incomplete, they are still worth exploring. Next, you will proceed to Meknes, your second imperial city. Be sure to visit the Bab El-Mansour gate, the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, and the Royal Stables. Afterwards, you will continue on to Fes and spend the night in a local Riad.
Fes, one of the four imperial cities in Morocco, is a destination worth exploring. Meet your guide for a half-day private tour to discover the city, starting with the oldest medina in Morocco, founded over 1000 years ago. You will wander through the souks, and explore the two parts of the city, Fes el Bali and Fes el-Jadid. You will walk along Talaa Kebira, one of the longest and most important streets in Fes el-Bali. Next, you will visit the beautiful Al-Attarine Madrasa, a school built by the Marinid sultan Uthman II Abu Said (1310-1331) near the Al-Qarawiyyin Mosque. Then, you will leave the old city and head to the new one to visit el Mellah place and enjoy the fantastic view. From here, your private tour of Tangier will come to an end in Fes.
