We had a MAGICAL day in Tangier with Abdel and Omar. From the minute he picked us up at the ferry terminal, it was like a dream. Abdel is a true local, with a passion for his community -- and it shows. People greeted him warmly everywhere we went, and he took the time and care to engage our 7 year old son in learning about Morocco (he LOVED the camel ride!). The sights, the sounds, the food (!!!) -- we felt completely safe as we walked the Medina experiencing life and culture in this magical city. 5 stars

Abdelmoghit is an outstanding guide! We loved our experience with him. Abdelmoghit is very thorough with his explanation of Morocco and it's culture, he completely enriched our tour with his openness and knowledge. We enjoyed every minute that we had together. I would HIGHLY recommend Abdelmoghit for any adventure in Morocco!
I'm giving Moghit a 5 star rating because that is exactly how we felt. I was part of a group of 9 family members, he personalized the tour for us accomodating all of our wishes within the time frame that we had. The minivan was new and super comfortable. Moghit was very fluent and articulate in English and French. He was most informative about the region's history and very graciously answered all of our curiosities. We managed to pack in two authentic meals, a camel ride, and a walk through the medin

The factors that influenced our decision to choose a ToursByLocals tour, with Abdelmoghit as our guide, were: 1. Tour personalized to our interests. 2. Limited to just our family. 3. Very knowledgeable tour guide with experience and high customer satisfaction rating. We had an unforgettable experience. Abdelmoghit is an exceptional tour guide who is an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide who took care of us from start to finish. Highly recommended. This was the best tour we've ever been on.
Wonderful tour today to the Beautiful City of Tanger with Abdelmoghit! We enjoyed the tour of the city and around,he also provided us with an informative tour of Tangier Kasbah and the market. The drive of the tour was very comfortable as we had the van to ourselves and our driver Omar was very nice and took good care to ensure we were comfortable! We were met by our guide in the port and being a local, he knew all the right places to take us. Highly recommended!

Moghit was an excellent guide for us 6 - three generations, ages 6 to 69. He shared info about the area & Islam. By van, we saw the newer areas of Tangier & walked the old city kasbah & medina. We had frequent stops for magnificent photos, donkey rides for the kids & camel rides for us all, breaks for tea & pancakes, & later a full traditional meal. Shopping was included but without the long drawnout sales pitches by carpet & oil merchants reported by many on large tours. Book Moghit for a memorable trip!
Pamela MeyerUnited States
This tour exceeded our expectations. A driver allowed our guide to talk with us about the sights along the way. He was knowledgeable and attentive. We were able to sample local almond pancake and mint tea at an amazing outdoor cafe on the sea! From there we had a fun camel ride with lots of pictures. Grotto d'hercules stop was breathtaking. The Médina in Assilah was beautiful and peaceful with lots of local art. We were treated to local chickpea bread and a loaf right out of the bakery oven. A great tour!
Peter SmithREADING, BERKSHIRE, United Kingdom
We had a superb tour with Abdelmoghit. We requested an itinerary that we give us an overall experience of life in Tangier combined with the historical, religious and cultural background. Abdelmoghit has a wide and deep knowledge together with a very personable approach. We really appreciated our wide ranging discussions which felt like a friend showing us his city. This together with an excellent driver and vehicle made for a very enjoyable excursion
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, It was a pleasure being your guide in Tangier. I really had a wonderful time with you. Thank you for such a great review! Abdelmoghit
Ronald FerrariUnited States
Abdelmoghit sent information prior to our ferry ride from Tarifa, along with purchasing our tickets that greatly help with boarding and disembarking. Once out of the building he was there to great us along with his driver. Omar. Very good driver with the traffic conditions. We toured around the town and ended the trip in the bazaar. Abdelmoghit paced the trip for us while discussing the local area. We recommend this tour. We only spent 6 hours in the country and the personal tour is the only way to go
Sarah CorbinUnited States
Abdelmoghit and our driver Omar were wonderful hosts for our adventure in Tangier. My husband and I saw all the key places over a six hour tour (was supposed to be five but Abdelmoghit was so accommodating with us taking our time!). He was friendly, knowledgeable, fluent in multiple languages (including ours - English),and made us feel welcome in a place we had never stepped foot in and one we surely would not have found our way around otherwise. He took many gorgeous photos of us as cherished memories.

The day we had with Abdelmoghit touring Tangier was the highlight of our trip. In addition to the very enjoyable historic and heritage sites, and the Medina and Bazaar, we (NY professionals+2 teens+2 grandparents) wanted to see Jewish-related sites. He arranged for a private showing of an old synagogue in the old Jewish quarter Melach, and we ate at a lovely Kosher restaurant in the city. He knows and loves Morocco, its people, and its rich diverse history. Overall a wonderful experience.
Abdel was an amazing tour guide. Communication was quick and clear and he answered all of our questions. He helped us arrange our ferry tickets and was happy to adjust to our interests during the tour. We always felt safe and taken care of as if we were a part of his family for the day. The traditional Moroccan lunch he arranged for us might be the best meal we had in our entire two week vacation and we will now seek out Moroccan food when we go places. Thanks Abdel!

We had the true pleasure of spending the day with Abdelmoghit as he shared with us his outstanding knowledge of Tangiers. His professionalism and dedication to ensure that he understood our wishes and interests and then integrated those into his itinerary and narrative were amazing. We could not have had a more enjoyable, informative day in Tangiers. With his guidance we came away with a superior experience of not only historical and contemporary Tangiers but of all Morocco.
Brook BraymanUnited States
Abdelmoghit is awesome. He's calm, warm, patient, and a good listener. He told us he was a grade school teacher when he was younger, and it shows. He taught us so much about the history, culture, and society of Morocco and especially Tangiers. He took us to great shopping opportunities without us feeling like he was forcing us into his cousin's business, and when I started running out of energy, he wisely got us a cactus fruit, and I snapped back to it (Moroccan Gatorade!).
Lorena BurksUnited States
We loved our tour with Abdelmoghit. We learned a lot, had wonderful experiences and really enjoyed our taste of the local cuisine. Fabulous experience and we can't wait to return and take another tour with him.
Michele SullivanUnited States
Moghit rolled out the red carpet for us today! He showed our family the many treasures of Tangier. He is a wealth of knowledge and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to the history of Morocco.
Grant OstvigUnited States
I visit to Morocco with Abdelmoghit was excellent. I booked a private tour as my family of 7 had a 6 month old baby with us. Prior to the tour the guide booked us passage on the high speed ferry at a discounted rate and sent emails with our ticket confirmations. When we arrived he had a newer van with great AC. When visiting locations he kept the pushy merchants away and coordinated even the tables for lunch so no time was wasted. Best guide I have ever used. Would recommend.
Karen PettitUnited States
Moghit plans an excellent itinerary, but he also took the time to educate us on the political, religious and social norms of the city. He helped us navigate the old town, and recommended a superb restaurant for lunch. The tour was perfectly balanced between walking and driving, and we were able to see everything on our list. Our tour with Moghit surpassed our expectations and gave us a level of comfort, understanding, and admiration for this beautiful city. Highest recommendation!!
Donald DalgerUnited States
Abdelmoghit was an incredible historian. He has deep know of the entire region and taught us so much history. He was extremely kind and accommodating. Our expectations were exceeded. Lunch was delicious. The combination of both driving and walk tour was a great balance and learning about the culture was very enlightening. Best tour guide! Thank you Moghit!
Kathleen D.New Braunfels, TEXAS, United States
We had a lovely tour of fascinating Tangier and Asilah with Abdelmoghit. He has in-depth knowledge of Morocco's history, culture, and people, and we enjoyed his many interesting stories of historic events. He also took us to unique spots, including the Tangier American Legation, and arranged an excellent lunch.
Jackie KearnsUnited States
5 out of 5 stars. Mohit is a wealth of knowledge. We learned a lot about the culture and history. He packed as much in the 5 hour tour as he could. I would highly recommend the 8 hour tour if you don't have time restraints. Moghit is very kind, thoughtful and efficient. When it was time to go, we felt like we had gained a family member and were sad to say goodbye. One more thing... the driver ( I believe Amere) is VERY skilled.
Anne MeadowcroftUnited States
Amazing tour, great guide. He knows exactly where to take us to see all of Tangier in a day. Very caring, and really informational in knowledge of the city.

Jessica PangUnited States
This was an amazing tour and our guide made all the difference. I went with my family ages ranging from 3 years old to 80 years old so having a guide that was conscientious of the needs and limitations of the group was key with pace and distance walked. Any questions we had he was able to answer with keeping in mind that Americans do not use the metric system and related in miles or feet. He was there from when we got off the boat to when we got on I would highly recommend this tour to any group.
Kathy LuncefordUnited States
Abdelmoghit was very knowledgeable and provided an excellent tour for my cruise group shore excursion. He was very conscious of the needs of our group, some of whom needed extra time for walking. It was very interesting to understand more of the Muslim religion first-hand. We had a stop at a beautiful place overlooking the ocean where he treated us all to a traditional mint tea, which was very tasty. I would highly recommend him. The vehicle was brand new and spotless. Excellent driver as well.
Carlton S.United States
What an excellent tour! Abdelmoghit is very professional. THIS is a great tour if your interest is to come away having a deeper understanding of place. We weren't quite sure what to expect but he gave us in our native English a cultural and historical background. A Wonderfull introduction to the national cuisine by way of two beautiful establishments, one out of town, one in. We appreciated that as we talked he added small spontaneous diversions to the tour. Abdelmoghit and driver Omar Highly recommended!
Daniel WellsSaluda, NC, United States
Moghit is the only safe way for people to see and enjoy the city of Tangier. He shows you all areas of the city and meet the needs of people with some walking Handicaps. The area of Tangiers is beautiful but you need a guide that understands local language to be safe in the old Market area. Some young radicals (Not typical of 99% of the people) came thru the market when we were there and Moghit got us out of their path. The areas surrounding the city are beautiful.
Donna BrownUnited States
Our tour in Tangier with Abdelmoghit was one of our favorite experiences on our trip. Tangier is beautiful and Abdelmoghit is a gracious and knowledgable guide who was very sensitive to our group's needs. The caves of Hercules were fascinating, the landscape on the drive out and back is spectacular. Abdelmoghit was brought up in the old section of Tangier, so his knowledge of that area is deep and we throughly enjoyed rambling through the narrow streets and hearing his reminiscences and greeting his Frien
Louise M.United States
Abdel is a knowledgeable, experienced guide. He is open to suggestions to tailor your experience and won't take you to be ambushed to buy anything. He is a truly wonderful gentleman!
Robert ValoneUnited States
We had an AMAZING tour with Moghit. He is so knowledgeable of the history and culture of Tangier as well as interesting design and geographical facts. Traveling with my husband and 17yr old daughter, we felt secure at all times, we were picked up right at the port and escorted by Moghit back through customs after the tour. Omar (our driver) was professional and friendly. Highlights included a lovely stop for mint tea and treat at Cap Spartel and a WONDERFUL lunch at Restaurant Kasbah. Thank you Moghit!
