Tour description

In this experience, the day will be devoted to explore and discover the medina of Chefchaouen and learning about its history, culture and daily lifestyle, in addition to visiting the Spanish Mosque to have the greatest panoramic view in town.
We’ll start by walking through the hidden corners in the medina which has 7 main neighbourhoods, and 7 Doors while introducing you to the Andalou-Amazigh history and culture.
We’ll be able to visit the main spots to take the most stunning pictures in town, then we’ll visit the Kasbah (the main fortress which was founded in the 15 century), after spending about 30 min in the Kasbah to see the garden, the towers, and the old prison. We’ll head up to the Spanish Mosque - a lunch break is provided in a local restaurant under your needs-
On our way to the Spanish mosque, we’ll pass by the river to see the water springs, the old laundry system, and the orange trees.
After heading to the Mosque, a 30-minute break is provided to enjoy the view and take pictures.
Afterwards, we’ll get back to the medina to go the market and pass by the neighbourhood of Swika (the commercial neighbourhood that has over 500 shops)

Omar is a great guide, extremely knowledgeable and fun. The tour is absolutely what you’d expect to see around Chefchaouen. All the instagramable spots and Omar is a great photographer.

Our tour with Omar was one of the best we’ve ever had. Omar went above and beyond to answer all of our questions about history and culture in Chefchaouen and Morocco in great detail and with passion. He is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide and made us feel completely at home on his tour. The route around the Medina was easy to follow and Omar told us interesting information about the local culture that we had been unable to find reading google. Thankyou again Omar!

Omar didn’t even showed to the tour. It also didn’t reply on the chat, we met with the rest of the people on the tour who also didn’t get any reply from them. Very unprofessional. He could cancel the tour or write an apology but nothing
