Firstly sorry for the length of this but it is hard to sum up how good our trip was in a few words. Having looked through trip advisor we saw that Aziz stood out from the rest as having the best reviews and his trip sounded awesome. 3 days doing the mountains gorges and a night in the desert. He came back quickly with all the information I asked for by email. The night before we departed he came to the hotel where we are staying to meet us and to make sure we were happy with the plans. This personal service eased any worries that we might not get picked up as I have read on other operator’s reviews. His 4 wheel drive was clean and new and very comfortable (important for the length of the journey). Aziz had a huge knowledge on Morocco, and both Barbour and Arabic traditions which he was happy to share.

We were worried by the distance to travel but with regular stops at either historic sites great views or just somewhere to good to have some food the miles flew by.

We visited a huge mix of sites including Kasbahs, underground water courses (awesome), gorges and fossil collections. Each place we arrived Aziz had phoned ahead and arranged an excellent guide who new the site well. This meant we got the good tour without the hassle of haggling over the cost of a tour. We gave each a tip for the tour and we were on our way happy. The only time we tried to sort our own tour we were asked for 10x as much. There were a couple of bit we wanted to buy while we were with Aziz and he was great for giving us tips on where to avoid (staying away from fakes and high prices).

The night in the gorges was brilliant just such a stunning setting (cold though so bring warm clothes, in April). The night out in the desert was the real highlight for us. We had asked about how many people would be at the camp where we would stay and I had intimated that few would be good just in conversation, Aziz in usual style had managed to change the company we were using and when we arrived we were led to our camels (which for camels were amazingly friendly) and with our guide rode out into the desert just the two of us. Within 500m we found the first ‘desert’ camps which were really just about in town. We were very pleased to continue on for an hour during sunset and into the moonlight out to our camp. The camp was very comfortable and the food was great. Our camp was again just the two of us which was perfect. I climbed to the top of a dune with my girlfriend and came down with my fiancée. The perfect setting.

On the final day we rode out after sun rise (spectacular) and back to a hot shower and breakfast. We had a lot of miles to do as we were going beyond Marrakesh all the way to Essaouira. Aziz had again been brilliant by having his brother speak to our next hotel and warn them that it was going to be very late when we arrived so they were ready for us. We still don’t know if it was him but we arrived to an upgrade as well.

Sorry for this diatribe but we had a brilliant trip, I have travelled the world and this is one of the highlights (getting engaged not mandatory). Aziz makes it, I cannot recommend him more highly. Enjoy.

I and my husband had an unforgettable day tour in Marrakech in March 2013 with Aziz, the local guide of Marrakesh Keys Travel. The price & service is good. We visited some places and knew about their history from Aziz that cannot be found on travel books. Aziz also show us the best places for taking photos.

We hired Aziz to escort and drive us to our various destinations around Morocco for a week. His English was excellent. He eagerly shared his knowledge of local culture and his Berber roots. He made a special effort to ensure we were able to see special landmarks along the way. He always arrived on time for pick-ups and re-arranged his personal schedule to meet our needs. If we were to return to Morocco, we would definitely engage his services again.

I can only add to the catalogue of wonderful reviews that he has already received. My girlfriend and i are seasoned travellers and i can safely say we have never met anyone so helpful and accommodating.

We travelled with Aziz to Ouarzazate, Ait BenHaddou and through the Atlas mountains. it is a long day, a real trek (the best part of 12 hours there and back) which without the right guide could have been tough going, but luckily we had Aziz, who delighted in telling us all about Berber culture and stopped us off at lovely places so that i could get some wonderful panoramic shots of the Moroccan countryside.

Nothing was too much trouble for him, and it was a joy from start to finish. I can't praise him highly enough. If you are going to do any trekking from Marrakech then ask for Aziz!

Aziz has looked after my family and I on a number of trips to Marrakech including my daughters and friends visiting on their own.
Aziz was always reliable, punctual and helpful and has great local knowledge.
