This excursion will amaze you. The village is magnificent with its colors, small streets, and shops. It's a 4-hour drive, with two stops to relax your legs. As for restaurants, those around the small square are tourist traps. If you walk in the heights, there will be small restaurants, further away. We ate at Blue Dream (very good and at a good price). Don't hesitate to go to the source.

Fouad was extremely nice and patient explaining everything about the Old Medina and the Moroccan culture. He took me by the main spots telling all the history with dates and details. His English is very very good!

Houcin was a great driver and guide. He was so kind. I looked into many companies and tours and this was the best deal. Everything was very clear and plenty of time to explore Chefchaouen! Highly recommend :)
