Overview
Chefchaouen is a mountain village in Morocco famous for its blue-washed buildings. Cradled in the Rif Mountains, its name means “Look at the horns,” a reference to the horn-like mountains that surround it. The city’s medina is a magical spot, the intensity of its blue colors changing with the sun for an effect that is sometimes subdued, sometimes electric.
Highlights
  • Guided day trip from Fez to Chefchaouen
  • Learn the fascinating history of this strategically-located mountain town
  • Admire the myriad shades of blue in Morocco’s aptly-named “Blue City”
  • Hassle-free transport to and from your hotel in Fez
What to Expect
Begin your day with hotel pick-up in Fez and relax on the 4-hour drive through the Rif Mountains to Chefchaouen. Founded in 1471, the city was formed as a kasbah, or fortress, to protect against Portuguese invasion. It later became a refuge for Jews and Muslims fleeing Spain during the Reconquista. The town was seized by Spain in 1920 and remained a Spanish territory until Morocco’s independence in 1956. Traces of Spain are still evident in the architecture here, with tiled rooftops and hanging balconies, but the labyrinthine medina is distinctly Moroccan with its mosques, hammams, and minarets. As you walk through the medina, admire the many shades of blue covering doors, stairs, laneways, sometimes even pavement. Continue on to Ras el-Maa, a waterfall in the mountains with a view of the city, before traveling back to Fez.

I was driven from Fes to Chefchaouen and back by Amine. He displayed a very high degree of professionalism and conscientiousness in his driving, and I learned a great deal about the destination from him. He also comes across as a really nice guy :) Very glad to have taken this

I had a tight schedule but really wanted to see Chefchaouen, so this tour was the perfect choice! The drive is long (4 hours each way), but the views on the drive are beautiful and it did not feel tedious in the slightest. Also the Blue City is more than enough payoff! Our

I booked this private tour from Fez to Chefchaouen, my tour guide is Amine. He showed up at my Riad on time, Amine is knowledgeable, polite and professional. Often those tour drivers drive very high speed and it is dangerous and risky to the passengers, but Amine has excellent
