At the meeting point we were confused about who we were meeting but met them at the information desk after asking around, it was the only bad point. Our actual guide we met in Morocco called Rashid, he was the best tour guide I've met. He was so lovely and funny and caring. He went the extra mile to make sure everyone was okay and even walked us to the ferry when it was time to depart. 10/10 for Rashid!

Great experience. Raschid was a great guide. Great stops except for the cave with kitsch for tourists, everything was perfectly organized. Sheep was that we hadn't taken into account that it was a public holiday in Morocco and all the shops in the old town were closed. Here Raschid had organized something for us. The ferry crossing was great except for the huge queue at passport control.

Driver Norredine & Guide Omar were perfectly perfect : on time, very communicative, flexible. We had an amazing moment in Akchour where we swam in cold water as the outside temperature was 39 degrees celsius ! Chefchaouen was a lifetime experience with detailed explanations and lotta pictures !

It was such an stunning experience! The best relactionship between quality and price,it’s only around 40€ and you get a guide meet new friends and get a person who will take care of you all ! if you like group excursions the best option to spend one full day

The great excursion. And without a doubt, the professionalism, kindness and friendliness of the Rashib guide had a lot to do with it, who was concerned and attentive at all times so that everything went well.
