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.

Giornata meravigliosa. il viaggio per quanto lungo é stato piacevole per i paesaggi meravigliosi ma soprattutto per la compagnia della nostra guida Hassan. Hassan é stato meraviglioso con noi. una volta arrivati a ChefChaouen, ci ha accompagnati nei posti più belli della città, ci ha offerto frutta e spremuta, ci ha fatto foto nei posti più belli. ci ha fatto ammirare dei panorami stupendi. abbiamo avuto modo anche di conoscerci meglio ed é stato bellissimo confrontare le nostre diverse culture. infine, tornati a Fez ci ha anche accompagnato a vedere una vista panoramica della Medina e il palazzo reale perché non eravamo ancora riusciti a vederli. esperienza a 5 stelle, ma Hassan ne merita 10 !

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
