After contacting Abdel through trip advisor, he helped arrange 2 tours for us based on what we knew we wanted to see (from the internet) and what he thought we'd like to see (from a lifelong love of his city). All in excellent English by the way.
One day we were taken to the foot of the Atlas mountains, through tiny and seemingly isolated berber villages, stopping at suggested photo opportunities as well as anywhere we thought was cool.
The following day, Abdel took us through the maze that is the old city of Marrakech and introduced us to it's colorful history as well as showing us glimpses into the daily life of the Marrakech people. Try the streetfood - broadbean soup in the morning and sardines for lunch, Yum!
Abdel, I truly appreciated your patience with our often silly questions, and the way we never seemed rushed even when we took last minute detours from the planned route. Your honesty shone through, if you didn't have the answer (which happened maybe twice) there was no long winded excuse or rubbish story. You promised to show us artisans without us being bombarded by them trying to sell us everything, and you kept that promise. But most importantly and impressive, was your knowledge of your city and it's rich and vibrant history which was entertaining as well as eye opening. We can't wait to return, and will definitely look you up when we do. Thank You.
