Full description

Discover the blue washed town of Chefchaouen on this day trip from Fez. Have time to explore sights like Kasbah Museum and Grand Mosque. Travel in comfortable airconditioned van and have the option of choosing from a group or private tour. 

The tour will start with a hotel pickup in Fez. After boarding your private vehicle, make your way to Chefchaouen, located in the Rif Mountains near Tangier.

Upon arrival, marvel at the incredible blue walls that make this town famous. Enjoy about 4 hours to explore the picturesque small city streets of the medina.

If you opt for the private tour, you have the luxury of deciding how you'd like to spend your time as there are many activities to choose from. You can discover the local shops and cafes and see the main square known as Plaza Uta el-Hammam.

To experience some culture you may wish to head to the Kasbah Museum, the Grand Mosque, or the Ethnographic Museum which contains musical instruments, antique weapons, and photographs of the old town. You can also stop off at the Ras Elma river that runs through the old city.  For lunch, you can buy a delicious meal in the square, perched on the roof terrace which offers panoramic views over Chefchaouen (at your own expense). In the late afternoon, you will head back to Fez.

I really enjoyed this day tour! It’s a lot of driving in one day, but the vehicle is comfortable and the tour guides were helpful. Chefchaouen was a really nice place to visit for the day. While I wish we had a little more free time to spend in Chefchaouen, I understand time is limited.

Overall a nice experience. If you are going in one direction only (I didn’t want to use public transportation) you’ll get several short stops on the way and a 40 minute guided tour. Be certain to get your luggage when arriving in Chefchouen, otherwise you’ll need to wait with everyone to return together to the bus (might mean you’ll have to wander around Chefchouen for 3 hours)

The best trip to explore this beautiful yet small blue city. Our guide Souka "the cheerful lady" helped us with all the information and guided us throughout the tour. The time was enough so you don't have to spend a whole night. Hussein our driver passed me the control of speakers and we had our own DJ night while returning. One of the best short trips you can do. Definitely do it.
