Maybe a bit biased because my origin is from this area, but chefchaouen is a must see if you are in the north of morocco. Spend at least 1 night in a riad or guesthouse, wander in the small streets and don't be afraid to get lost. Walk up to the old mosque around just before sunset and watch the... More

I had been most excited about Chefchaouen for our trip but to be honest, although it was cute, it disappointed. I would give it a 3 1/2. All the blue seems more like a marketing ploy than authentic. The trip was long (longer than stated, 5 hours from Fes), windy and if you are susceptible to motion sickness, be sure... More

The city was nice. We had a pleasant walk through the blue streets. The view was perfect. It was the best day in our Moroccan trip.

If your going to Morocco Chefchaouen should not be missed. Its gorgeous old medina - we could have spent a couple of days wondering around it.

Charming Chefchaouen old city. The blue buildings, alleys and everything around you is simply mind calming. We spent the best 2 days we had in Morocco (given that we visited casablanca, Fes, Tangier). Chefcaouen city is not to be missed. If i had the chance to come back to Morocco, i will definitely go there again.

I would've been so wrong! We booked a trip with Fes City Tours. We were blessed with Mohammed as our guide. We had a great trip! Mohammed was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. If you're thinking about taking the trip, do it! If you aren't planning it, put some serious thought into it. I can't imagine not going! Gorgeous

The Medina or old city in Chefchaouen is so charming with its all blue buildings and alleys. You could spend days discovering new corners and details.
