Full description

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.

Afterward, discover the waterfalls of Akchour, a natural beauty, and the small breathtaking waterfalls. A local tour guide is provided at Akchour.

Mohammed does more than just driving from point A to point B. On the way picking up other guests he was giving me an insight to Tangier and its culture. Omar was an excellent tour guide, and photographer. Being a local himself, he was able to explain Chefchaouen’s way of life. Our trip to Akchour was also amazing. He did give an option to go to Tetoun as the waterfall may be a lil dry, but he respected our itinerary and followed through. We were very lucky to have as he took amazing shots.

Pleasant walk in the heart of the city of Chefchaouen, super nice guide who adapts to our pace of break for photos. Nice meets . Lunch at the top in a very nice restaurant. I do not put 5 stars only because the place in Akchour does not really correspond to the photo when booking the excursion but it was all the same a pleasant moment where I was able to enjoy a good tea with my feet in the 'water

We had a great day with my 9-year-old daughter, the driver was punctual and very friendly as well as the nomen guide who was well received and even carried our bags for us. He was very considerate of my daughter and wore it out climbing the steep paths to access the alchemy waterfalls. He made us discover the history of and the alleys of chefchaouen that he knows like the back of his hand! In short, a wonderful day that I recommend to everyone! Too bad there is not a preferential rate for children all the same!
