Small-Group Day Tour to Chefchaouen from Fez

Book a private tour or shared-group tour option and meet your driver at your hotel or another Fez location–the included return transportation saves you the hassle of cabs, buses, or self-drive. Settle into your air-conditioned vehicle and admire the scenery as you travel into Morocco’s Rif Mountains toward Chefchaouen, whose old town (medina) is dubbed the ‘Blue City’ for its blue-painted houses. On arrival, you’ll have time to absorb this beautiful town independently and enjoy a walking tour with a local guide (the latter may depend on group size and chosen tour option). Stroll the blue cobbled lanes, view the Grand Mosque and 15th-century walled Kasbah with its Ethnographic Museum, browse the handicraft shops, and enjoy the cafes and eateries (own expense) around the main Plaza Uta El Hammam. After roughly three hours or more in Chefchaouen, return to Fez where your tour ends back at the starting point.
