Full description
The tour will start with you being picked up at 8.00 AM from your accommodation in Fez. After boarding your private vehicle, you will make your way towards Chefchaouen, located in the Rif Mountains near Tangier. Upon arrival, you can marvel at the incredible blue walls that make this town famous. You will have about 4-hours to explore the picturesque small city streets of the medina.

As this is a private tour, you have the luxury to decide how you would like to spend your time and there are many activities to choose from. You can discover the local shops and cafes and see the main square known as Plaza Uta el-Hammam. To experience some culture you may wish to head to the Kasbah Museum, the Grand Mosque or the Ethnographic Museum which contains musical instruments, antique weapons, and photographs of the old town. You can also stop off at the Ras Elma river that runs through the old city. 

For lunch, you can choose to enjoy a delicious meal in the square, perched on the roof terrace which offers panoramic views over Chefchaouen. In the late afternoon, you will head back down to Fez, arriving at around 8.00 PM.

A really nice tour to visit Chefchaouen during the day. We really loved the professionalism of the team and their kindness. Thank you to our guide of the day Soukeina and our driver Said for their good humor during the whole trip. It was very nice to finish the journey with music.

As I’m sure you’ve read from other reviews, it’s a very long trip there and back. It was nice having a local guide. Personally speaking I think the blue painted buildings are just a bit of a novelty, but if you’re keen to see it, the tour was a good easy way to see it. The bus had wifi which was great but the seats did feel a little bit cramped for a long journey. Everyone from the tour company was very nice and accommodating.

I had doubts about whether to book with this agency because I had not read very good comments. but I really liked the bus where we made the excursion has wifi which makes the 8 hours you are traveling more enjoyable. The guide in Chouen spoke English but also Spanish. It is a heavy journey stop one day but it was worth it.
