**Aziz really gave us the VIP treatment. He made us feel very cared for. He was very accommodating and honored every request. He is SO knowledgeable and answered every question we had about the city and the culture. Let's not forget that his English is impeccable. We were a little worried about trying to understand a guide with a thick accent, but Aziz was great!**
My husband and I were very excited when we learned how easy (though a little pricey) it was to visit Morocco from Southern Spain. As Rick Steves fans, we contacted Aziz Begdouri. He was very quick to get back with us. We determined a price and activities via email before we even arrived. Aziz met us at the port, loaded our suitcases into his car and drove us all around the suburbs, to see the Cave of Hercules and then we spent the evening on a tour of the Kasbah. It was awesome to visit the city at night and see it as the locals see it.
We asked for local culture, so he took us off the beaten path to see unique markets and crafters. I love taking photos and he was very patient while I snapped away - even taking me to place he particularly thought I would like to photograph. My husband loves to try local food, so Aziz took us various places to do a "taste of" type tour as we explored the city. He even honored my husband's bizarre request to find a McDonald's before the night was over (He has this strange goal to eat at a McDonald's in every country we visit - but that's another story!). He dropped us off at our hotel and told the staff to take good care of us.
The next day, we joined in on a small group walking tour and saw the old city by day. Aziz picked us up at our hotel and we walked to the city. It was almost a completely different place. It was a cool experience to see the city by night and by day. Aziz took us to see the Berber market and to see rugs being made. He also took us shopping and made sure we were able to find the items we wanted.
For a young couple from a small town in Indiana, we could have easily been intimidated by the bustling city, especially at night, but with Aziz, we felt safe and comfortable. He knew EVERYONE and everyone liked him. I would definitely recommend Aziz to anyone traveling to Tangiers. If you do the private tour, just let him know what your interests are and if there is anything specific you do/don't want to do. He will take good care of you.
