“A wonderful day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had an absolutely fantastic time on our tour around the Marrakech monuments with Abdul. He was engaging and obviously passionate about his city. Abdul took us to sample some fantastic local cuisine which is not to be missed and we learnt so much about this wonderful place. A fantastic day had by all.

“19th June 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We enlisted the help of Abdul to give me and a friend a true experience and tour of Marrakech and couldn't have chosen better. We seen places we wouldn't have found and met people along the way whose memory will stay with us a life time. Abdul is very passionate about his city and kept us interested for the full 8 hours. If it is your 1st or your 10th visit to Marrakech Abdul is sure to give you an insight into this wonderful city you would struggle to find on your own. Cant wait to return with my family and I will definitely be giving Abdul a call to help us along the way....

“Best choice we could have made”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

We booked Abdul before we left the UK based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we certainly made the right decision. We were travelling with our 4 young children so we booked a half day tour for our second day. I can't rate Adbul and his tour highly enough. We were a little apprehensive about taking the children around the souks etc, and we did want our "hands held" slightly to give us a quick orientation. Abdul covered all this and more. He specifically tailored our tour to suit the children and their little feet not wanting to walk too much, and for our desire for them to see different parts of the souks. It was lovely to see Abdul greeting people and taking us to places we NEVER would have found unless by accident, while sharing his love and knowledge of this amazing city. I believe that this experience seeing the city through Abdul's eyes really helped shape our opinions and experience of the city from there on in and has left a true love of the city embedded in our children who can't stop talking about when they are going to come back when they grow up.
We saw so much, but at a leisurely pace that suited our needs. If we had visited the souks without Abdul initially we may have felt harassed and perhaps put off revisiting but he quickly explained the love of life, happiness and banter that characterize the souks, let us try haggling and even when the tour was finished took my partner back to buy waterproof shoes (the hotel pool floor was cutting the childrens feet) The fact that he could find somewhere to buy them straight away is evidence of this mans true knowledge of the souks!!
We wished we had booked him for further tours as he is such a lovely gentleman. Please do not hesitate to book with him..it will be the best choice you can make.

“A great city tour and brilliant 'berber' experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We arrived in Marrakech with the intention of seeing as much of the city attractions that we could and also wanted to visit a Berber village in the Atlas mountains.
Our Riad owner had a leaflet for the mountains but it wasn't really what we wanted so we logged on to Trip advisor and chose this one,(Having already briefly looked before the holiday at tourism sites).
The website was clear and precise so we sent an online request through to do the half day city tour and Atlas mountain trip with a couple of date options, Abdul promptly replied and arranged to meet us as our Riad.
Having a guide to take you through the maze that is Marrakech centre makes it so much easier and clearer to get to the attractions and also get your bearings and sense of direction back! (We had spent our first 2 days wandering around the same route not realising there were shortcuts!).

Abdul's knowledge and pride in his home city shine through and it is so much more interesting to hear personal stories too, you can literally talk about anything with him from politics to football or religion to lifestyle.
He also shows an interest in you as well and is really easy to get to know, this obviously makes the tour a lot easier, comfortable and informal.
It's useful to have a photographer on hand too, to be fair he takes a good photo!

Next up we did the Berber mountains, this trip is such a great experience, that really made the holiday for me, Abdul and his driver picked us up from our Riad, drove us to the foot of the mountains (About an hour and a half) and we then had a light trek to a Berber home, the views are absolutely amazing, the air fresh and the local's warm and friendly along the way.

I urge anyone with intention of doing this trip to take some stationary for the local children, they are so grateful for it and you will feel glad you did when you see their reactions.

We met the home owner who was preparing a meal for us but first we had a tea ceremony, it takes half an hour to make but is worth the wait!
Lunch was a nice salad, tagine and cous cous, followed by fresh fruit picked that morning, we commented on how nice the cherries were so en route back down the mountain we stopped to pick our own!!
The home owner was a pleasure to meet, 26 years old, speaks four languages, does trekking tours and has aspirations to set up a lodge style business for the serious trekkers, he deserves every success and we swapped email addresses so hopefully will be able to see his progress.

Overall we were very pleased to have done both of these trips and I would recommend them to anyone, also I wouldn't leave it until you arrive in Marrakech to book them as you can arrange from home before you go.
We were lucky that it was a quiet time for tourists when we went so we got our chosen trips, but I would hate to think that we could have missed out on these experiences by not booking in time.

Also in case you were unsure about going around the city with an old man, that isn't Abdul in the profile picture above, he's a bit younger than that!!!!!!!

Thanks Abdul, 2 great trips that made our holiday! ;-)

“Hidden Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We booked this tour before we left the UK as we wanted to really experience and learn about Marrakesh, and we were not disappointed. Abdul was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the city and it was fantastic being able to spend the day with him.

He knew the city really well and left us feeling at the end like we had truly seen the true Marrakesh and not just the tourist areas. Abdul also takes really good pics which is great when you are sick of trying to take selfies!!

He took us to a local café and I had the best beef tagine of the whole trip. My husband got to eat sheep head there as well which he does not stop going on about!

It was so much nicer walking around the souks with him and not having to worry about getting lost, as well as not getting hassled anywhere as much.

I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Abdul and will be booking again should we return in the future.
