Chefchaouen or Chaouen, as it is often called by Moroccans, is a popular tourist destination because of its proximity to Tangier and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. The name refers to the shape of the mountain tops above the town, that look like the two horns (chaoua) of a goat. « Chef Chaouen » derives from the Berber word for horns, Ichawen. There are approximately two hundred hotels catering to the summer influx of European tourists. One distinction possessed by Chefchaouen is its blue-rinsed houses and buildings. Chefchaouen is a popular shopping destination as well, as it offers many native handicrafts that are not available elsewhere in Morocco, such as wool garments and woven blankets. The goat cheese native to the area is also popular with tourists. The growing tourist industry is geared especially towards Spanish tourists, who are especially numerous during great Catholic feasts like Semana Santa and Christmas. Chefchaouen was visited by Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell in 1967. They adored it finding it « very ‘Golden Bough-ish’ Orton mentions their trip in the Orton Diaries. There are a number of distinct mosques in the town. Aside from the mosque at Place Uta Hammam in the medina, there is also a mosque dedicated to the patron saint of Northern Morocco’s Jebalah region, Moulay Abdeslam Ben Mchich Alami. His tomb and the village surrounding it is by the way an hour’s drive or so from Chefchaouen on the old road to Larache. There is also a ruined mosque built by the Spanish, with stairs still in the tower.

After breakfast in Chefchaouen we take the way to Rabat. After couples of hours driving you will arrive to the Capital of Morocco Rabat.

After Lunch at a restaurant near the square, you will walk through the souks and view hundreds of handicrafts. On the afternoon, you will have some free time to wonder by yourself the other parts of the city. Marrakech nicknamed the “Red City” for its old red sandstone city walls and buildings. It has Berber rather than Arab roots and was an important trading capital for tribes of the Atlas mountains. Orient yourself around Marrakech’s bustling Jemaa el-Fna Square: the souks are to the north, the Koutoubia Mosque and Gardens to the west and the kasbah area with the Saadian Tombs, Bahia Palace, and El Badi Palace are to the south. In the new city, you will find the Majorelle Gardens. Indulge your senses as you explore the complicated labyrinth of souks, tucked behind ordinary restaurants and shops. Check out Souk el Attarin, Souk Chouari, and Souk Smata for a selection of spices, woodwork, and babouche (traditional Moroccan slippers). Visit Souk of Tanneries or the dyers’ souk to see how cloth and yarn are dyed using traditional methods.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Shari Varughese

My parents and I loved everything about this trip. Hamid was very attentive to making sure we had the perfect itinerary and accommodation in our 10 day trip. Our driver Rabia was the PERFECT tour guide for us. We can’t say enough good things about him. We LOVE him. He was so caring and kept making sure we enjoyed each day. He is a wonderful guy with a great heart. He is family to us now and we hope to come back to Morocco and explore more of this beautiful country and people. Thanks to this company and people for opening their hearts to us. Until we meet again 🇲🇦❣️

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Jana Dybinski

We had an amazing trip through Morocco organized by Hamid! I truly can’t imagine a more organized, responsive, or trustworthy company to work with. Our guide Rabia was wonderful and made the trip exactly what we wanted it to be - for us that meant avoiding the super touristy places, stopping for photos, and connecting with the Moroccan people and culture. As two young female travellers we felt safe, so we’ll taken care of, and the accommodations exceeded expectations at every stop. If you are thinking of booking a tour through Morocco, stop looking at other options and book here! You won’t be disappointed.

Very recommendable travel agency! We (my husband, myself, two kids 14 and 16 years) booked a seven day tour with Hamid starting from Marrakech via Boumalne Dades, Merzouga (Sahara), Fes, Rabat and Casablanca. Hamid planed everything perfectly, replied to messages within very short time and was helpful at any time. Thank you! Our driver Hamid (different Hamid from travel agent at the office) was the best driver you could wish for. Not only that he was a safe driver but also extremely friendly, funny, honest, always on time and helpful! Thank you SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING HAMID! From the pick up at the airport until the drop off and good bye at the airport everything worked out perfectly. Thank you again 😊
