Overview

Chefchaouen and Imperial Cities Tour

Our comprehensive Chefchaouen and Morocco Imperial Cities tour offers an all-encompassing itinerary, allowing you to seamlessly explore the imperial cities of Morocco in conjunction with the captivating Blue City of Chefchaouen.
This exceptional tour encompasses the modern-day capital, Rabat, the enchanting ocher-hued city of Marrakech, and the spiritual hubs of Fez and Meknes. Fez, with its historical significance as the capital under various dynasties including the Idrissid, Marinid, Wattassid, Saadian, and Alaouite, offers a profound glimpse into Morocco's rich past. Each of these cities has held the esteemed position of being the kingdom's capital at various points in its history.
One of the highlights of this tour is the opportunity to explore the "Blue Pearl" or the "Blue City," Chefchaouen. Nestled in the picturesque Rif Mountains, this charming town was founded in the 15th century by Abu al-Hassan Ali ibn Moussa ibn Rashid al-Alami. While the reason behind the town's distinctive blue walls and buildings is subject to several theories, including its association with the Jewish community, its purported mosquito-repelling properties, or its reflection of the azure sea, Chefchaouen's allure is undeniable.
Embark on a journey that seamlessly combines the cultural treasures of Morocco's imperial cities with the mesmerizing charm of Chefchaouen, all while immersing yourself in the vibrant history and beauty of this enchanting North African destination.
