What people are saying about Tangier

This was a wonderful experience! The van was modern and super comfortable which was important for a long day of driving. it even had wifi. Once we got to Chefchaouen we met our guide, Nouman - who was an energetic funny and knowledgeable local. He was patient and gave us plenty of time to take pictures. Its hard hard take a bad picture in chefchaouen! Lunch was delicious and offered a variety of options. Overall it was a really great day! Highly recommend.

A beautiful day and a calm sea, our guide Carlos was great and Rashid most definitely deserved his legendary status. My wife left her asthma inhaler on the boat and Rashid phoned the pharmacist from the view point where the Atlantic and the Mediterranean meet to make sure she got a replacement, and looked after her all the way so we had a very enjoyable day. We loved both the meal and the walking tour, a memorable first time in Africa.

This was an awesome tour! Anass and his team were wonderful and very friendly. They made everything possible to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. They were also very knowledgeable about the places we visited. I highly recommended it!

Amazing tour from start to finish. Omar is one of the best tour guides there is and his passion for his hometown of Chefchouen is obvious. The waterfall and the hike is breathtaking and an unexpected sight. Whole tour was excellent.

If I could give more than five stars, I would! Omar was a fantastic guide, very friendly, very knowledgeable, and he gives great lunch recommendations. Highly recommend!
