    Loved our day out to Chefchaouen. After being taken by a taxi from the airport when we first arrived in Morocco, we decided to pre-arrange our day to Chefchaouen. It was seamless. Our driver picked us up from the train station and even dropped us off at our Riad. He was willing to answer whatever questions we had about the region. Very interesting. Relaxing and stress free.
