The city of Chefchaouen is one of the most attractive places of the north of Morocco, standing between the Rif mountains as a small piece of Andalucía. In the past, Chefchaouen was a walled city, which is why the Medina is divided into seven neighborhoods. One of them is Er Rif Al Andalus, where the Majzén Square can be viewed.

Con partenza da Tangeri siamo arrivati a Chefchouen in circa 2.5 ore; autista gentilissimo che ci ha fatto fare una sosta lungo il cammino per la colazione, disponibile al dialogo e con Wifi a bordo. Giunti sul posto abbiamo conosciuto la guida che si è dimostrata molto preparata in quanto cittadino dello stesso luogo, quindi, chi meglio di lui? Durante tutto il tour ci ha deliziato con tante curiosità in merito alla città partendo però dalla sua storia. Dopo averci concesso anch’esso una piccola pausa rigenerante tra shopping e dolcetti tipici (offerti da lui), era cosi arrivata l’ora del pranzo che abbiamo trascorso in un locale etnico e raffinato. Dopo il pasto abbiamo avuto un altro pò di tempo per comprare gli ultimi souvenir e abbiamo intrapreso alle 17 la via per il ritorno. L'autista è stato gentilissimo nel lasciarci, una volta giunti a Tangeri, nel punto chiesto da noi. Consiglio vivamente questo Tour.

Mohammed does more than just driving from point A to point B. On the way picking up other guests he was giving me an insight to Tangier and its culture. Omar was an excellent tour guide, and photographer. Being a local himself, he was able to explain Chefchaouen’s way of life. Our trip to Akchour was also amazing. He did give an option to go to Tetoun as the waterfall may be a lil dry, but he respected our itinerary and followed through. We were very lucky to have as he took amazing shots.

I think this was a good deal, hotel pickup, wifi in van. one stop to chefchaouen and then a tour around, many opportunities to stop for pictures and lunch before heading back

Great trip. Mohammad who drove us there and Omar, tour guide were awesome. We had great experience. I highly recommend.

Amazing experience, well worth the price, amazing guides. Very respectful and knowledgeable
