During the hour-long ferry ride, you can relax on deck and take in the beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean meeting the Mediterranean Sea. Upon arrival in Rabat,Morocco’s political capital, we can do the hotel check-in and then straight dive into the adventure visiting the popular square with the incomplete mosque which today forms an important historical part of the city featuring the Hassan Tower, the beginning of several walls and 200 columns being constructed. After that we’ll explore the Kasbah (fortress in English) and climb up its narrow streets to the top where we’ll have scenic views over the Atlantic Ocean.

DAY 4: FEZ –  CHAOUEN (Friday)
After breakfast, we will begin the official tour at the Golden Doors of the spectacular Royal Palace. Next, we will wander around and inside the historical Medina, allowing the beautiful architecture and surrounding sites to transport us back over 1000 years ago. In Fez, you will get to experience everything: mosques, madrassas, karabansarais and several other cultural sites.

DAY 5: CHAOUEN (Saturday)
After few days touring the country, we’ll forget about our transportation and get to enjoy a full day in the Blue City. We’ll enjoy a generous breakfast beforeo our local guide takes us around unraveling some of Chaouen’s best photo spots. What can not be missing in Chaouen is the free time to wander around the blue streets and for souvenir shopping.

After breakfast, we are heading to Tangier, which is the gateway to Africa. Visiting the Caves of Hercules where you can see the exact point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea.
