Imperial Cities Luxury Tour – 9 Days program itinerary
Day 1 Arrival in Casablanca
Welcome to Morocco!
Your adventure begins when you arrive in Casablanca in the afternoon. Your private driver will pick you up from the airport and begin your tour visiting the Hassan II Mosque with the tallest minaret in the world. Not only does this landmark showcase the best of Morocco’s architecture, but it is the only mosque in Morocco whose interior is open to non-Muslims. So step inside and soak up the extraordinary craftsmanship, detail and divine ambience of this incredible site.
Relax for the rest of the evening in your 5-star hotel. Dinner tonight is up to you, but you will be recommended by your driver, who will take you to a number of luxurious restaurants near Morocco’s economic capital.
D 2 Casablanca to Chefchaouen – A City Awash in Blue
Today, you will travel to Chefchaouen. This small city is a visual delight in blue; walls, doors, windows, stairs, alleys and arches – everything is a combination of soft sky blue and deeper, more vivid hues. Located in the heart of the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is known for its ‘Old Moroccan’ feel.
On the way, you will visit the majestic Hassan Tower monument, one of the most magnificent structures of the Al Mohad Dynasty. A curious landmark, the Hassan Tower is the minaret of a 12th-century mosque, a noble architectural project that was eventually abandoned. All that remains today is the red sandstone tower, 145 feet (44 meters) high, and about 200 columns of what would have been a wider complex. After wandering through the ruins, visit the Mausoleum of Mohammed V, where you’ll see the intricate tiles, mosaics, and handicrafts of the land and experience its first-class taste.
Lunch will be self-sufficient at the driver’s recommendation. Afterwards, you can explore the blue neighborhood of Udaya, which sits above the Atlantic Ocean. The picturesque charm of this neighborhood is the perfect starter on your journey today.

This is a great place to buy handmade wool clothing, woven blankets, cedar wood furniture and other handicrafts from northern Morocco.

Next is Azemour, which has been inspired many Moroccan people’s artists over the decades, some of whom have chosen to live here.

You’ll find plenty of artistic inspiration in the crumbling 16th-century medina squeezed between Oud Er-Rbia (Mother of the Spring River) and the sea.
Take advantage of the incredible abundance of the Atlantic Ocean with a traditional fish lunch as you travel. Your driver can take you to an authentic local fish market, where no-frills food stands serve some of the freshest grilled and fried seafood you can find.

You can also choose to order fish directly from many of these food stalls.
