Hello, It is very nice to hear from you, thanks for your inquiry.

Your wish to see Rabat, Fes, Chefchaouen and Tangier will offer a great tour to see these cities. 

Fes is an Imperial City and has a very attractive maze of narrow streets in the fascinating and absorbing Old Medina, the market and the souks.

You will very much enjoy being in Chefchaouen. This small city is totally charming. It’s an ideal place in which to simply relax and wander, taking in the wonderful ambience of the place. Its medina area and it charming narrow passageways, where blue paint dominates, is an exotic place in which to happily lose some time. Ras el ma spring, the town’s river source can also be visited. 
Here is a very rough outline of a possible "circuit":-

Day 1: Departure from Casablanca to Rabat then to Fes, Overnight in Fes 
Day 2: In Fes, Meknes and Volubilis, overnight in Fes 
Day 3: Fes to Chefchaouen 
Day 4: Chefchaouen to Tanger and departure by ferry to Spain.

How does that sound? If it is of interest then I can prepare a fuller draft Trip Plan for your further consideration.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards, Larbi

Hello Larbi

Thank you for your prompt reply. That sounds like what we were looking for, I will discuss with the other members of my group and reply. How would we be travelling? Bus or large car?

Could you give an approximate cost per head for 4 people, medium price accommodation?

Many thanks

Larbi
Good to hear back from you and to develop your Tour further.

The transport would be private transport with driver in a Toyota Land Cruiser (or similar); very comfortable.

The cost per person will be around 400 US dollars and this will give you four days with private transport and driver, accommodation four 3 nights in 3* hotel/Riad in 2 x twin/double rooms and including evening meals and breakfast.

If you would like a half day city guide in Fes to be added (not yet included) this would be an additional 15$ per person.

If this all sounds good for you, please let me know and I can send you a very nice Trip Plan that will fully describe your tour and all that can be seen in your chosen places.

Looking forward very much to working with you to create your ideal tour in the north of Morocco.

Kind regards, Larbi

Hi Larbi 
We have discussed the trip and would like to do it in 3 days instead of 4? Spending 2 nights in Fes. Hoping we can do Fes to Tangier in a day via Chafchouen? Then a morning in Tangier, catching a ferry around midday from Tangier Med to Algeciras? Your comments and price would be appreciated.

Larbi
I am afraid that with only 3 days then your wished for itinerary cannot fit into this time span. A 4th day really is necessary because of the distances involved and you wishing time of course in each place.

If you can reconsider making it a 4 day tour then I am happy to work with you on this.

Kind regards, Larbi

Traveler

Larbi

Hear from you when you are ready.

Good morning Larbi

We have some questions re the tour?

1. Is the vehicle definitely a Toyota Land cruiser. We feel we need a vehicle of this size to transport 4 passengers and luggage?

2. Will you be our driver or will it be another person?

3. Will the driver be a tour guide to places of interest on our journey

4. Will the driver speak good English?

5. Can you give a little more detail on the accommodation - we would like to stay in Riad with ensuite bathrooms?

6.We would be interested in the half day tour of the medina in Fes.

Looking forward to hearing from you re your Trip Plan for this trip

Larbi planned a wonderful trip for us. It was exactly what we wanted for the time available to us. His driver was excellent, obliging and knowledgable. When we had to make some changes nothing was too much trouble for Larbi.
Thank you for putting us in touch with him.
