Four of us thoroughly enjoyed walking with Ibrahim despite temperatures which were high even for the locals! The visit to a village of potters was memorable; it was the first time any of us had seen the process from raw earth to finished pot carried out by a community much as they must have been doing for several thousand years. These are not tourist pots or a tourist destination. We wanted to buy a small example of their craft as a souvenir but couldn't carry it so Ibrahim arranged for a couple of platters to made, decorated with the traditional Berber symbols, and brought around to where we were staying next day. We appreciated his help and resourcefulness. He was less successful the next day when a swarm of bees invaded the tiny farmstead where we were going stop for local bread and honey- but I guess seeing-off bees on their own territory is a bit beyond the call of duty! A fascinating and varied set of walks and experiences for which thank you!

Ibrahim was excellent throughout the week. Full of local knowledge, kept us going in the more challenging bits, and both friendly and utterly professional throughout.The food provided was great; ( probably healthier than we usually eat at home!), and he was tolerant of my constant questions.
No hesitation in recommending him to others.

We had Ibrahim as our guide for two walks in the High Atlas mountains. He was friendly and knowledgeable. He adjusted the second trip's length and pace to suit our group. I would happily walk with him again.

I have recently returned from a weeklong trek with Brahim to the summit of Mt. M'Goun in the High Atlas mountain range. The trip was organized by an Israeli company and Brahim was one of our two local guides. Brahim is a very dedicated, gentle and knowledgable guide. He spoke with us in very good English. He told us a lot about the local traditions and translated from Tamazich what the local people we met along the way said to us. He is very trustworthy and I recommend him as a guide!

We had a fabulous trip walking in the Atlas mountains with Brahim. He was excellent making our daily walks very safe and interesting giving us lots of local knowledge and geographical information. Every day he was very punctual, exceptionally polite and provide discreet yet imformative guiding. We enjoyed a daily picnic lunch, our vegetarian diet being catered for, with local salads, cheese, bread and fruit. Brahim helped me cross a fast flowing river on stepping stones and made sure we were safe throughout. Next time we go to Morocco we will contact this company to make the arrangements and would recommend it to friends and family.
