Overview

Escape Tangier’s heat on a full-day, private excursion to Chefchaouen, ‘the blue pearl’ of the Rif mountains. Glimpse vendors’ vivid wares at Al Makhzen market, shop for beautifully made Riffian handicrafts and cool off beside Ras El Ma, the village’s pure spring. Enjoy a traditional multi-course Moroccan lunch, then take in the distinctive Arab-Andalusian art and architecture of the medina, whose brilliant blue building and vivid tile roofs are a striking contrast to the rugged alpine landscape.

The private transfer was great. The driver was nice and pleasant to talk to. He accommodated my smoking, allowing me to stop and have a cigaret. Attentive to the heat, asking me if the a/c was ok. We arrived and connected me to the tour guide. The guide tried to do his best under the scorching sun, but I think he was a little too old for the walk. I felt sorry for him. But all and all, it was ok. I think he thought that I was there just for the pictures on the best houses.
I would've taken more time to wonder around. he took me to a rug house, I guess they make commission out of the sales. Then quickly took me to a restaurant that I didn't even choose. The restaurant didn't have most of what it was in the menu.
After eating, off we went.

Visiting this city is a most if you are in Morocco . It was the highlight of our trip. The tour was very interesting and we had a great time. We used the same company for 2 different tours and I was happy with them. I totally recommend it for your future trips. The driver was excellent , really helpful and accommodating. He was a little late to pick us up but not big deal, they apologized more than one and made it up for that. Our guide in Chefchaouen was a character. The walking at the city could have been better planned, It was unnecessarily long , We walked by the same area sometime more than one, and at the same time is was rushed. We could not stop alone the walk when we wanted because the guide was on the clock. We could not do shopping where we want since he wanted to take to some specific places. The commission factor again !! . I would have liked to stop at the spring water area for refreshing but it was not and option either. The place for lunch was good with nice ambiance but with no price at the menu, and they definitely overcharged us. My recommendation, is choosing one of the places in the main street market. The extensive menus are printed outside so you can see what is good for you, and It is very nice seating outside, watch people while eating.

We were promptly wisked away on our 2hour journey from Tanger City center to Chefchaouen where we met our guide. Our guide was thoroughly knowledgeable about the city and helped us navigate the narrow passages in the wonderful blue city. We wanted to wander on our own for a while which was a wonderful way to end the day before the return trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our driver was very kind, the car was comfortable and clean. When we got to Chefchaouen we met our guide. He was informative, funny, and took lots of pictures for us so we could remember our trip. I read previous reviews before going about the berber shop and while we did go there, they welcomed us with mint tea and never pressured us. The store was a short stop and we found it interesting to hear about how they make everything. During our tour our guide helped us feel safe and because he seemed to know everyone made us feel very welcome.

Our guide was superb. He gave us a wonderful introduction to the city and gave us plenty of recommendations of things to do in the afternoon. Excellent value for money.

Well organized tour. Our driver, Abdul, was very safe, accommodating, friendly, informative and punctual. Mohamed, our tour guide in Chefchouen, was knowledgeable, engaging, helpful, fluent and friendly.

The only reason we're giving this 3 stars is because we had a great driver. When we go to Chefchaouen, there was no guide. They had to find one. He turned out to be a fellow who was more interested in letting us know how important he was than in telling us about Chefchaouen. We were left at a restaurant with a fixed menu no alternatives allowed, and then we were to fend for ourselves. Fortunately, our driver saw us and we returned early to Tangier. Without the driver, I would rate this as a 1 star trip. Too bad, as Chefchaouen looked beautiful.

Excellent tour- our driver Abdel was excellent- the car was spotless and we were given so much information on our trip. At Chefchaouen Amed led us through this incredibly beautiful city and once again we learnt so much. If you only have one day in Tangier( as we did) I thoroughly recommend this trip

We loved our trip to Chefchaouen - this is a must do when in Morocco! Both our tour guide Mohammed and our driver Hamza to the town from Tangier were very friendly and helpful. They took our photo whenever we wanted, including along the drive in the countryside, and our tour guide led us to an authentic, well-priced Moroccan lunch. We got to see the beautiful blue alleys of the town, markets for shopping, and even went outside the medina to look back at the blue buildings nestled on the mountain. It was also cool going in the bakery where they bake the bread and the rug shop where a man was weaving a rug, though we were encouraged to buy one when we didn't want to.
