A wonderful day with our guide Rachid and his driver Houssine! Thank you for his explanations, his culture and his kindness, we had a great day thanks to Rachid who made us discover all the corners of Tangier; even my 8 year old daughter loved her day and the museum visits! I recommend Rachid as a guide 100%

Our tour guide was exceptional. He expertly showed us all the sites, sounds, smells and beauty of Tangier. We will definitely recommend this experience to anyone we know traveling to Morocco.

Good tour. Saw a lot in a very short time and tour guide was very knowledgeable. Included transport to and from our hotel in Casablanca which was very helpful
