With only a few days in in Tangier I had hoped to see its sites and learn a bit about the city but after taking this tour not only were these goals met in full but I also experienced the character and soul of this wonderful place. Omar brought to life the history, the culture and the heart of these wonderful people. We were picked up in a modern, clean, Mercedes van at our hotel for the trip to Asilah and Cape Spartel feeling comfortable and safe at all times with Monsif’s driving. Later we had a delightful traditional lunch at a local restaurant in Tangier. The meal was inexpensive and very good. In the afternoon we continued in Tangier from the Medina to the hills overlooking the city with its beautiful views. The tour was in English which Omar had a perfect command and was very accommodating to mold the tour to our tastes and interests. I have been on many tours around the world and this ranks as one of the best. I would recommend him and this tour to anyone.

The overall experience was very good. It was easy to book and follow up with. We were picked up at our hotel & taken to the train station. Our driver spoke English and helped navigate a slight issue with our train tickets (that was later resolved promptly) The train was comfortable and very smooth. There was a concession car but I didn't visit it. There is no WI-FI on the train at all. Our tour guide (Abdul Salamasri) & driver met us as we got off the train with a very clear sign with our names on it. The car was clean, fairly new and very comfortable. The driver was very safe. Abdul spoke great American English and we had a wonderful tour. We went out to the countryside to see Hercules Grotto as well as where the Atlantic and Mediterranean meet. Then we explored the kasbah and surrounding area.

Our guide, Taliano Mustapha, was the BEST! Spoke very good English, was very knowledgeable, and extremely patient with 2 old ladies and their disabilities. Our driver was also very conscientious of our needs & age. They both were very friendly & accommodating.

Excellent service all the way around. Long day but we’ll worth it. Everything as stated Great day!!

Super expérience. Hamza our guide was super kind and friendly. We highly appreciate the tour
