Is our itinerary too hectic?

Hello again! I'd appreciate some advice on our itinerary. Our flights are to Casa and back from Madrid are fixed. Anything in between is flexible. We are a couple most interested in nature/ scenery.

This is our first attempt on a trip with so much transportation but we're excited about it. However, I just want to make sure it won't be too hectic! Maybe we can extend our stay at one place and take day trips from there?

I'd also like advice on best means of transportation for all marked "via?". My brother recommends we rent a car to be able to move at our own pace and stop where we like. Is this practical?

Here it is:

Arrive Casablanca 12 June 1345

Travel right away to Fez via?

Stay in Fez for 2 nights

Travel to Chefchaouen via? on 14 June and stay one night

On 15 June travel from Chefchaouen to Tangier via? to Tarifa via ferry

On same day travel to Ronda via?

Stay in Ronda for 2 nights

Travel on 17 June to Granada via?

Stay in Granada for 2 nights

Travel to Cazorla on 19 June via?

Stay in Cazorla for 2 nights

Travel to Madrid on 21 June via?

Stay for one night

Flight back from Madrid is at 1535 on 22 June

Thank you!

Actually, our main reason for visiting Granada is just seeing Alhambra... Is it practical to just stop by and see it on our way (or stay for one night in Granada instead of two) and add the saved nights to Cazorla?

I'm sorry I didn't point out that we were only planning to rent a car in Spain. In Morocco, we plan on using train or taxi.

I think it really depends on you and how much energy you have. It is a balance between seeing as much as you can and actually being able to call the trip a vacation (meaning you are able to relax enough). I think that your trip is kind of hectic, but it is not the most hectic I have seen. You will probably be tired by the end of it. It just depends on your style...

I would definitely rent a car in Spain. It will give you a lot more flexibility, and if you want to stay in one city for a longer/shorter period of time you will be able to a little easier.
