  • From Tangier: Day Trip to Chefchaouen

    1. From Tangier: Day Trip to Chefchaouen

    Starting from Tangier at 9:00 AM, this tour will take you high up into the Rif Mountains to discover Chefchaouen, the beautiful blue door and white walled Medina, which was originally a Berber post. Enjoy a guided tour of the city when you arrive. See the main square, the heart of Chefchaouen, with its 18th-century kasbah, central mosque, and cafes with authentic Moroccan style menus. Stroll the market to discover a mix of traditional Moroccan and tourists souvenirs. Visit the Jewish Quarter behind the jewelry souk to discover a unique part of the city. Drive back to Tangier and arrive by 5:00 PM.

    I believe this was one of the best tours we experienced in Morocco! We started off in Tangier- it’s approx a 2 hour journey each way to Chefchaouen and OH MY GOD the views enroute are stunning! (Special shout-out to Mounsif who drove us there and back, he was extremely respectful, stopped over at a beautiful restaurant with a panoramic view for some pictures and a drink + he had great taste in music - we got to show him some music from our culture on the journey too haha) Our tour was hosted by Omar, let me tell you that he is the most considerate tour guide we have ever come across and best of all, you can tell how much he loves his job and sharing his culture! He was born and raised in Chefchaouen, spoke exquisite English and knew exactly what we would love to see, where we wanted to go, showed the best views and places to eat without any hassle or pressure. The tour gave made us love the special gems in Morocco more and I would definitely book it again! Thank you!!

  • From Tangier: Day Trip to Chefchaouen and Akchour Waterfalls

    2. From Tangier: Day Trip to Chefchaouen and Akchour Waterfalls

    Visit Chefchaouen, a beautiful blue door and white-walled medina that was originally a Berber post. The main square is the heart of Chefchaouen, with the 18th-century kasbah, a central mosque and cafes with authentic Moroccan style menus. The market is a mix of traditional Moroccan and tourist souvenirs — it’s often very busy, but worth a visit for the bargains. On your walking tour with your driver, explore the kasbah which was built by Moulay Ismail and is now practically a ruin next to the Great Mosque. Visit the charming main square and the souks that sell an array of goods. If you head to the Jewish quarter behind the jewelry souk, you will feel the difference between it and the main Arabic feel of the town. Afterwards, discover the waterfalls of Akchour, a natural beauty, and the small breathtaking waterfalls. A local tour guide is provided at Akchour.

    My wife and I loved our Chefchaouen tour. Youssef, our guide for our time in the blue city, was both knowledgeable and funny: it felt like we were being guided by a friend. He spoke fluent English and really gave us a great experience. Our driver was also incredibly friendly, punctual, and safe. While we were (slightly) disappointed that the tour booked a guide for the Akchour Waterfalls that did not speak any English (we are NOT disappointed in him; he was great! We just assummed that we ordered an English speaking tour). It was still a great time and he made our experience great, too. Keep in mind: this tour was for individuals that did not mind rock scrambling on semi-challenging terrain. In fairness, our guide may have given us the option to choose which path to take, but there was no way of knowing this because we did not share the same language. All in all, a great experience! :)

Overall it was a great day, especially the mixture of the natural experience at the beautiful waterfall and river in Akchour and the tour through Chefchaouen with a local guide Omar. He chose the perfect spots to see, to drink tee and have lunch. Also he was a great guide through the national park and the history and the most beautiful spots in Chefchaouen. Thank you!
