14 Day Tangier, Chefchaouen, Imperial Cities & Asilah Tour

Tangier

This private Morocco tour is suited to travellers with no interest in visiting the desert, who instead prefer to focus on the varied culture, character, and history of the four imperial cities of Morocco. This tour offers you Moroccan cities steeped in history, with the chance to explore the north and south of Morocco, including the majestic northern coast. If you’re interested in our Morocco tours but you aren’t starting off from Tangier, our Casablanca tours and our Marrakech tours may be of interest to you.

Description of this Gateway to Africa Morocco Tour

This is a non-desert inclusive tour and it can be customised if you need to shorten or extend your stay. Our extensive ‘Gateway to Africa’ tour offers you a packed itinerary balanced with days of relaxation to allow you to absorb the changing culture, varied experiences, historic sites, and views on offer throughout Morocco.

From Tangier, you visit all four of Morocco’s imperial cities, Meknes, Fes, Marrakech, and Rabat, in addition to Chefchaouen the ‘Blue Pearl’ in Morocco’s crown. You also visit the contemporary city Casablanca and the beautiful coastal town of Asilah before returning to Tangier. This is the perfect Morocco tour for anyone who prefers history, culture, and architecture to Morocco’s natural desert beauty. However, if you prefer the wilder side of things, make sure to check out our Northern Nomad’s Morocco tour and our Marrakech deluxe desert tour!

Despite not visiting the desert, you will find it easy to imagine the great Saharan camel caravans entering the city gates of Marrakech, or sultans holding court in all the splendid city palaces, and historic battles raging outside the Medinas.

Enjoy the atmospheric accommodation, city ventures, and a spectacular mountain road trip journeying from the north to south. Countless cultural experiences await you on this incredible Morocco tour from Tangier.
