I had such a blast in this tour, the most incredible day in Tangier with Rashid, our incredible guide. Rashid picked up our group right at the ferry in Morocco and took us to wonderful spots in the city to explore. He is probably the happiest person in Morocco and has a wonderful laugh! He provided excellent guidance on what to see, experience, eat, shop, and pay for in Tangier. As a solo female traveler, I felt completely safe with him and trusted him to take care of me and our group. He is affective to every need or want you may have. The tour itself was great, we got to see the old and new town of Tangier, learn about the history of the city and Medina, ride camels, have a traditional lunch and tea, and visit a traditional textile shop with beautiful goods for a great price. He had us back to the port in time for our ferry back to Spain and left us happy and in awe of the beautiful country of Morocco. Thank you Rashid!
