We had a great experience, the trip was as described. the bus journey had a couple of stops to break up the journey. Our bus guide Souka was super helpful and lovely. We then had a different guide for a tour around Chefchaouen for about 50-60 minutes which was great. We then had free time to explore and to have lunch. Overall a great experience

They came to pick us up at our riad. We drove 3 hours to Chefchauen. We arrived there and first had a tour by a guide. The explination of the guide was very poor and her English was bad. But she showed us the most beautiful places of the city. It's a long drive, but it's a 100% worth it.

Great day tour, get sufficient time in Chefchaouen to explore by self or follow the crowd. Distances are long so drive is long with 1-2 short breaks on the way, in peak season several tourist buses follow the same route so expect crowds.

Great place and experience. The guides were pleasant and explained everything!

Sulka was very helpful. descrption was very accurate to the itinerary
