Such a lovely day trip! Our driver Mohamed was very friendly and even showed us around Tangier when we got back from the day trip, which was not something that was included in the package - very sweet of him to show us beautiful areas that we would have never seen otherwise. Regarding Chefchaouen, it is as nice as it looks on all of the Instagram photos and the guide there was a nice local person who had a lot of interesting bits to share with us. The drive itself is not very long, about 2.5-3h with a break for toilet and drinks and the vehicles are also super comfortable. Thanks Xauen tours for the great experience!

This trip was great! Our guide Nouaman provided an excellent tour of the city and also helped us to find the quality vendors to select and purchase some beautiful souvenirs. We got a great overview of the city’s history and cultural practices. We were invited inside a traditional oven and to mint tea. He was extremely knowledgeable about the local culture and history and made sure to help us enjoy our visit to Chefchaouen. It was great to be led by someone who grew up inside the blue city. We highly recommend working with him if you have the opportunity!

We had a great time discovering Chefchaouen and Akchour with both guides. Nouaman was very patient and kind. He gave us excellent advice on what to do and see around.

It was Great! The guide from Chefchaouen, he really know its village, and the experience is valuable!

Guida ottima. Simpatico e competente.. Rende la visita ancora più speciale!
