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.
This tour was brilliant. Muhammed the guide was friendly, knowledgeable and highly welcoming. My partner and I felt that we had seen everything Tanjier has to offer. Any question we asked was answered with a high level or knowledge and understanding. The lunch we had was in a chosen one, but the food was superb and the staff very friendly. Prior to the trip we read reviews that stated the guide didn't help with street vendors and harassment but Muhammed took care of every awkward situation, of which there were only 2. I have recommended this tour to friends and will be booking more tours with Muhammed on our next trip to Morocco. Excellent tour, excellent guide, can not speak highly enough.
Our guide, Abdul, was quite knowledgeable. He did, however, seem to have his own agenda even when we expressed our particular desires. We were interested in shopping in Asilah where the vendors were not as aggressive, but he clearly had relationships with the vendors in Tangiers and steered us to items of no interest to us. With this said, he was congenial and tried to please us. The driver, Sayeed, was lovely, gentle, polite, and we always felt safe. It was a marvelous experience and we thank them both!
There was a mix up with the ferry times so we arrived earlier than anticipated. Trying to contact the tour operator was extremely difficult as their phone automatically went to an answer machine with no ability to leave a message. Eventually we found each other via emails but it was very frustrating. Needed a mobile contact number to avoid this in future. That said, the tour was very good once we met up with the guide! Highly recommended.
Had a wonderful excursion and day with Omar! Him and syed went above and beyond in all aspects. Could not recommend this tour more. They were attentive and ensured we felt safe and comfortable at all times - particularly being two young women travelling. Also highly knowledgeable with the tour and all of Morocco, and were approachable regarding any questions we had
