Said M.

Fes, Morocco

I was born and grew up in the medieval city of Fes surrounded by so many historic and ancient monuments.

Time seems to have stopped here and you would feel really as if you are back into the middle ages strolling down the narrow streets of this old city while donkeys and mules are passing by. These animals are still one of the main tools for transporting goods in this ancient city. It's the biggest urban car free zone in the world, with 9500 narrow alleyways that are filled with markets, mosques, fountains, monuments etc. This ancient city is considered as the biggest museum in the world.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to live in the US for many years which has helped me to adopt a new culture and see the world from another angle. Although I studied computer programming there, I kept organizing tours and giving lectures about Moroccan history, culture and religion.

I went to school here in Fes and graduated with a B. A. in English literature from the university of Fes.

I am fully convinced now that traveling and discovering other countries does not only reduces stress and keeps your body healthy inside and out but also is the best way to bridge the gaps between the different cultures in the world and the ideal way to enrich your personality.

I have been working in the tourism industry in Morocco for the last 22 years and I will be happy to share this experience and knowledge with our valued visitors. Most of that time has been spent guiding travelers, helping them to experience our Moroccan lifestyle, culture, customs and hopefully changing their perceptions of Morocco and the Arab world.

My recognised ability to communicate with people from many different backgrounds, cultures and countries has enabled me to lead both lecture and tour groups with great success and acclaim.

Currently my objective is to play a more significant role in promoting the Moroccan culture, food, history, music and so much more specifically through tourism, by utilising my vast experience and knowledge. I am offering travelers a unique and exclusive glimpse of my Country, accompanied by me as their personal tour guide here in Morocco.
Being flexible, having fun and making sure that my travelers get the most from their vacation is my primary focus and goal.
I am an active licensed professional tour guide and pride myself on my ability to add personal touches to every tour I conduct. It is extremely important to me that my guests return home with experiences to remember.

Credentials
