Hi! We arranged for some very personalized service from Tangier Excursions. Keep in mind that the tour industry in Morocco provides a driver who can only drive, and a tour guide who can only guide!! We had a guy named Mohammed, or "Mo" as our guide. He was an older man, and he answered my email and appeared to be reporting to some boss during our trips. That's all I know about the company. We needed transportation from Chefchaouen to Tangier so they sent just a driver but we had personal conversation with him. Nice guy, can't recall his name. We met Mo in Tetouan and he showed us the city, gave history, etc. on our way to Tangier. The next morning, he met us again and gave a tour of Tangier, very good. We had some specific shopping to do (my friend wanted a special handmade wooden hanging) and I wanted hammam soap! And he helped us accomplish those tasks. The next day, he met us and we had a really nice tour of a beach town, Asilah, on the way to Rabat where we needed to catch our plane home. So you see we needed SAFE clean transportation as much as a tour guide! It was relatively inexpensive. I will provide a caveat, however---- my friend said "Mo" was hitting on her the whole time! I was oblivious, I'm also married. Ha ha. That may have been cultural, I don't know. But just know generally that the King of Morocco is wanting to move the country into tourism and has instructed his citizens to be good diplomats and to encourage knowledge of the country and the people. So they have not been at it long, but are trying. You won't get some tired tour guide, you'll get someone- a man - who will show pride in his country. And you will come home LOVING Morocco!!! Happy travels- and you should include Marrakech and Essouira!
