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.

Excellent driver and tour guide, amazing views, lots of monkeys and great shopping. Not the full hiking experience we had hopped it would be. No time to see the actual falls, just the pooling water around them. Don’t know if this was due to other guests shopping and eating beyond the allotted time, or if Akchour is always just a brief stop.

We had an amazing time on this day trip. Chefchaouen and the drive out there is stunning and a must see. Our driver Anass was very nice and Informative. The only thing I wish we new in advance was to bring water shoes for the akchour hike. Part of the hike required walking across a rocky river, up to our knees in water. Since we weren’t prepared for this we ended up taking an alternate route to see a small waterfall. We really enjoyed the hike as well but it is definitely not ideal for anyone with mobility issues as we were jumping across wet rocks on part of the hike but this luckily wasn’t an issue for us. Overall, we were very happy with the tour and it was our favourite experience in Morocco so far! I highly recommend!

This was done on my second day in Morocco and I loved it!! It was organised and professional from the beginning! It was a very productive day and I saw amazing views. The blue city - chefchaouen was gorgeous, every corner was beautiful! The guide takes you his friends shop which is more expensive, so a tip I would suggest is shop as you go!!! Everything is the same and the first few shops may be cheaper than the ones the guide will take you to. Don’t listen to the quality being bad, because everything is the same. The waterfall walk can be tiring so be sure to wear comfortable shoes !! Other than that, it was the best day I had in Morocco, tiring but beautiful
