“highly recommend visiting the Dades Gorge with Youssef!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We had an amazing 10-day tour of Morocco with our driver, Youssef! He is an excellent driver and was lots of fun as well. He can even dance like a camel. We had many long hours in the car, as we went from the coast (Essaouira) to the desert (Merzouga) to the Dades Gorge to Marrakech - including two trips across the Tichka Pass (eek). Through it all, we were safe and extremely well cared-for. When we were in the Dades Gorge, it seemed like Youssef knew EVERYONE (for that matter, he seemed to know people everywhere we went) and he was able to help with the translating and other negotiations. We also got to meet some of his family, and learned a few words in Berber (my favorite being "asnuz" for "little donkey"). I give Youssef my very highest recommendation - thanks for making it an unforgettable trip!! :)

“great fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

we booked a 2 night 3 day tour with brahim in the atlas mountains which was fantastic
brahim is an excellent guide who has very impressively taught himself enlish french and spanish
he organised a custom tour for us that suited our timeframe and budget. he was very helpful and easy to communicate with via email. he picked us up from our riad and organised a fantastic trip for us to see the dades gorge and trek/mule ride in the atlas mountains.
he was cheerful and talktative which made the lkong drives to and from the mountains very pleasant [along with the magnificent scenery] and would always stop for photos/shopping/toilet breaks if we asked.
he was also a very safe and experienced driver
brahim invited us into his family home to have tea with his family. they were so hospitable and friendly which made the trip feel very special
we had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend dades experience to anyone!!

“Wonderful Dades Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We travelled during a week with Brahim, Josef and Ahmed. We were a group of 9 women in our sixties and I can say we all were deligthed with the experience.
It was a very well planned tour. I highly recommend the Dades Experience. They are excellent drivers and have good cars and they very kind and always willing to please you.
We visited very interesting places less touristic but always we had our meals and rooms in time and had no trouble.
If you go to Morocco no doubt let them plan your route and I am sure you will e

“Absolutely unforgettable, unique experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We did a 3 night tour from Marrakesh to Fes. From the get go, Brahim was excellent replying to emails, and customized our tour to our preferences and budgets (backpackers). They are from the Dades area, so for a personalized, intimate tour of this area you cannot go past these guys. We found it very affordable, so do discuss your preferences with Brahim. Youssef picked us up from our hostel the first morning, and we visited Ait Benhaddou en route to Dades valley. We spent one night in a village near the Dades gorge, in a cute and comfortable riad with great food and staff. The second day we hiked with Brahim through the valley (generally easy hike, 4 hours) and stayed with a nomadic Berber family in their cave (very basic but unforgettable experience). This time spent in the Dades was THE highlight of our 2 weeks in Morocco. The scenery is spectacular, and the family was so welcoming and generous, even though communication was tricky :-) This did not have a touristic, business feel as some homestays do. The next day we headed back to the village, had breakfast with Brahim and Youssef's family (wonderful, open Berber people), and headed to Merzouga for the dromedary trip and night in the desert, which was wonderful. We almost had the camp to ourselves, it was cold though (April). Food was great the whole way along, transport was very comfortable, and the boys are super friendly and interesting to talk to. Could not recommend these guys more.

“ibrahim is first class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Ibrahim not only knows the best places to go - he does it affordably, safely, reliably and always with a smile on his face.

He takes people from anywhere in Morrocco to anywhere in a custom designed route with a price that can't be beat even if you are travelling independently.

We highly recommend using his services,
S & D.
