On this tour we’ll visit the northern part of the country, Casablanca, Fes and Chefchaouen. Very different in landscape and scenery, beautifully perched beneath the raw peaks of the Rif, Chefchaouen is one of the prettiest towns in Morocco, an artsy, blue-washed mountain village that feels like its own world. Casablanca conjours up images of the classic movie and Fes is the ancient capital.
