Upon arrival into Casablanca, we will visit the famous Hassan 2 Mosque. Exterior appreciation only. We will then drive to the capital city of Morocco, Rabat. Also one of the country's four imperial cities. Visit the Hassan Tower, which was intended to be finished as the tallest minaret and mosque in the world in the 12th century. However, the construction was stopped after the sultan died. Just across the unfinished ruins stands the striking Mausoleum of Mohammed V. We continued to Asilah overnight.
After breakfast we will drive to the hill city of Abd Salam where the zaouia of the great Sufi master Ibn Mashish is located. Have lunch here and we drive to Chefchaouen for overnight Note :- 1. As this is located in the area of Jabal Aman, the weather can be unpredictable. As all seekers it is best to observe kindness and a pure mind for the success of this tour. We as Tour Operators encourage all visitors to spend good time here. As this zaouia is an open concept please dress appropriately and have protection for the head. Umbrella is essential for rain and sun. The surrounding hilly area of the zaouia is full of meditation caves and a place where the angels used to come and sing. This area needs a bit of trekking up the hill. So far Morocco2u tour to this area has been blessed with good and cooling weather. Everything is smooth as silk. But for all spiritual seekers, it is very much depending on the group spirit. This is not a place for leisure tourism. 2. Chefchaouen has only one 4 star hotel and to make a booking one needs to make a full payment 12 months before your arrival. As such we stay in local built accommodation and non standardized room type. Customers need to understand this to avoid unnecessary misunderstanding. Today we will explore this tiny city, known as Morocco "blue pearl" or the blue city resting under the Rif mountain. The cool beauty of all the hue blue and white calm our soul as we walk and climb on the cobble narrow alley. The Berber’s tribe people can be seen wearing cotton clothing with hats of bright decorated thread. After lunch we will continue to Fes
