Welcome to Tangiers! Upon arrival you will be transferred to your accommodation. The history of Tangier is very rich due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a Phoenician town to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a place and sometimes a refuge for many cultural diversities. However, it wasn't until 1923 that Tangier was attributed an international status by foreign colonial powers, thus becoming a destination for many Europeans and non-Europeans.
Today morning you shall have the opportunity to visit the town. Later you will depart from the hustle and bustle of Tangier, we head to the rif mountains to Chefchaouen, a haven of peace and tranquillity. High up in the rif mountains, Chefchaouen is a beautiful blue door and white-walled medina that was originally a Berber post.

It is an assault on the senses, from aromatic smells, colourful sights and an abundance of sound. The souks have a variety of goods for sale and bargaining is expected. Crisscrossing alleyways are overflowing with goods, from exquisite lanterns to beautiful tea sets, pointed shoes in the softest leather, as well as everyday wear.
