Our Story


At The Chaouen Insider, our mission is to connect travellers with local people, sights and experiences here in Morocco. Founded by Renay Weir, an Australian living in Chefchaouen, The Chaouen Insider uses Renay’s travel experiences and local knowledge and connections to offer you a travel concierge service, taking the hard work out of planning, organising and booking your dream holiday.

Consider The Chaouen Insider as your own Chefchaouen (& Moroccan) google. Anything you are wanting to know, do or see, we will endeavour to make happen or put you in touch with trusted locals who will!

Morocco is a beautiful country with amazing scenery with the most friendly, hospitable people. However, we understand that travelling in Morocco can be a daunting idea for a lot of people, especially girls and solo travellers. Language issues, lack of information and trust as well as lots of people promising things - it can get quite overwhelming. The Chaouen Insider is here to simplify things, give you the right information and take away the stress so you can just get on with having an adventure of a lifetime!

Here at The Chaouen Insider, we love empowering travellers and giving them that little extra confidence to travel safely around Morocco on their own and making bookings and services as straightforward as possible. Having previously worked in a hostel & managing an Airbnb in Chefchaouen, Renay has taken a number of travellers under her wing, shown them how to navigate the medina streets, how to barter, use public transport and offered travel tips and advice for overland travel in Morocco.
