We have done a round trip from Marrakech to the desert with Ahmed Haddou. The trip was very confortable in the large Mercedes van that we used. The pace of the voyage was perfect with stops for cultural visits and recreation. Ahmed is very knowledgeable of Marocco, its geography, historical and cultural aspects.He is a very pleasant person and prepared guide.Thanks to Ahmed we enjoyed our vacations and we strongly reccomend him if you want an unforgettable discovery of Marocco and the Berber culture
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Patrizia for your kind words. It was lovely to explain my country to you, I enjoyed it as much as you do as you might be awared. Have a great 2020 ahead, I hope i can see you again with your family. Yours sincerely Ahmed

WOW!!! We had a positively AMAZING experience with Ahmed traveling through Morocco! Every morning we were greeted with a warm smile and an adventure filled day. At each city, Ahmed had prearranged for us to meet up with a local guide who shared the "inside scoop" on each destination. This experience enriched our perception of Morocco on many levels! I would HIGHLY recommend Ahmed to anyone traveling through Morocco! You will be AMAZED!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jennifer for taking the time to write me such a wonderful review. It was my honour to bring you around Morroco. May your memory of this trip brings you a good start of 2020. All my best wishes to you and your family. Yours sincerely Ahmed

Ahmed & his driver Hassan, were fantastic, enthusiastic tour guides for my 12 day tour. Ahmed is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, good-humored & personable. They know good photo stops & places to eat (Berber pizza!). They were totally willing to make changes to the itinerary if needed. All accommodations were lovely with extremely friendly staff/excellent service. Don't be afraid to learn some Berber words! People enjoy your attempts and it opens up more sharing of the culture. Recommend Ahmed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anne I greatly appreciate your Excellent review , so thank you for your time , And of course, I'm Very pleased that you had such a memorable experience in all aspects of the trip. I greatly look forward to your return and taking a longer trip.
We did a beautiful 4 day tour from Marrakech to the desert in Merzouga and back with Ahmed and Ali (driver). We were travelling as a couple with no other guests and could stop wherever we liked for quick walks or photographs. Both Ahmed and Ali know a lot about the country and culture. What we loved about them is that nothing was forced. They didn't constantly flood us with information but let us decide when we wanted to know more. Everything was perfectly organized and we would do it again anytime!

Ahmed led us on a private, 9-day tour. He helped plan and guide us thru an amazing journey. Things that stood out: he was always on time, waiting for us. The first van was clean and nice but the seats didn't recline. When I mentioned this, he had a new, nicer van delivered from 6-hours away at no additional cost. He was friendly and knowledgeable. His driver was also great, professional and friendly. I'm a tour guide myself in Costa Roca and I highly recommend Ahmed.

We were thrilled with our full-week tour of Morocco and Sahara, particularly because Ahmed made us feel so comfortable/safe the entire time; as well as his driver was impressive given all of the curvy roads and long distance (thanks to Ali as well!). Ahmed has a great personality for tourism (he participates and is fun - our teen son loved this), is smart and considerate, and definitely has satisfactory places picked out that he deals with regularly, which keeps from wasting any time. Highly recommend!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Ahmed. He was always on time when picking me up at my Riads, always communicated by Whatsup before and after each day. The city guides he used were also on time and very informative. Add all of the above, plus a person who always had a smile on his face and made you feel well taken care of and you have an excellent tour. I am very happy to say that I made a new friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James , Thank you so much for your feedback and recommendation. I appreciate it and very well appreciate the time it takes to write. Very welcome to Morocco any time.
Ahmed is an experienced guide who ensured we had a brilliant trip. He is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, good-humoured and fun, always punctual, calm, and helpful and a very careful driver. I would warmly recommend him to anyone planning trips out of Marrakesh. Discovering Moroccan landscapes and historic sites with him was an unforgettable adventure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roxana , I greatly appreciate your Excellent review , so thank you for your time , I appreciate that. And of course, I'm Very pleased that you had such a memorable experience in all aspects of the trip , as you are mentioning here.

Excellent and fully justifies 5 stars. Ahmed is friendly and a very knowledgeable guide. He was happy to stop whenever/wherever we wanted and he chose the best watering holes for us. We saw all the important sites and a lot more! Thank you

Peter GallicUnited States
Amazing. I came to show my teenage daughters that the world is bigger than them. Ahmed made that happen. He educated them, he showed them the beauty of the desert and of the berbers. We saw the wild mountain ranges, we drove off road to meet nomads in caves, we climbed palm trees to see the pollen that the wind blows to fertilize and grow dates. We saw ancient kasbah a bvb d sang and danced with berbers. We drank tea and laughed and made a life long friend. Excellent, excellent excellent
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Peter thank you for your wonderful review and for such a great time with you and your family , and for sure i hope we can do it again and bring all your family . Yallahhhhhhh

Ahmed was a fantastic guide. He is extremely friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable and entertaining. We travel a fair bit and have never taken a guided tour. I was a bit worried that we might not enjoy being “trapped” with a guide for 4 days. Luckily we experienced the exact opposite as we looked forward to his company every day. Our driver, Rashid, was amazing. He’s such a patient and safe driver and this was much appreciated on the long drives on windy two (one??) lane roads.Highly recommend Ahmed & Rashid!
Tom KennedyUnited States
Ahmed & the driver were very punctual in picking us up at the Riad in Marrakesh. He had arranged a Land Cruiser for our 2-day trip. Ahmed shared information about the country & answered many questions we had about his life. He did a great job trying to engage the kids. He was very patient & flexible on the tour, allowing us to stop frequently for our car sick son & making any stops we requested. He had arranged our hotel accommodations for one of the nights & it was perfect! He is very personable.
Dean FalzoneUnited States
Ahmed was a very good tour guide and a nice person. Very attentive to us and gave valuable information during the tour. He made sure he gave us enough information and was kind enough to give us time on our own during each stop. The stops he made for restroom breaks and lunch were very nice.
extraordinary experience with Ahmed. He is charming, knowledgeable, and responsive. He and Mustafa (the driver) were amazing. They took good care of us, even when the road washed out and we were forced to take a 400 km detour! The tour was everything we dreamed of, and more! Don't hesitate: Ahmed and Mustafa are the ***** team. Their pride in their country, genial personalities, and expertise make this a don't-miss opportunity. They were the best...We arrived as strangers and left as friends.
I rate Ahmed a five star guide. He is sincere, punctual in time, good choice of driver, Rashid who was also the best, and honest in accounting. We, three of our family, two from USA and one from Tokyo, travelled 12 days with him with satisfaction under full of security and sanitary conditions. He is 30 years old with full of energy and promising future. He will improve his guiding way and English ability every day. We liked Ahmed very much-thank you indeed very much, Ahmed. Jean Martin
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks Jin! That’s really nice to hear. I do my best to make sure you are set up for a great trip. Looking forward to seeing you again in Morocco
Robyne BloodNew Zealand
Ahmed gave us the experience of a lifetime as he shared his deeply loved Sahara with us. Our 4 days took us from Marrakesh to Fes via the Sahara and every moment was perfect. Ahmed and our driver were warm, caring, fun and knowledgable. Give yourself the gift of Ahmed's company- every moment was magic
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely feedback Robyne and letting me know about how much you enjoyed your trip with me , and welcome to Morocco any time.
Ahmed was a great guide and a very friendly fellow. The rates were reasonable. This tour though other than the falls which are worth the visit for sure, there is not much else to see. The falls area make up for it. see Monkeys and have them on you if you want. Hike around the falls, see different plants...we were there about 3 hrs and it is a place worth seeing. I highly recommend Ahmed as a guide.
Ahmed was a great guide and a very friendly fellow. The rates were reasonable and the tour was good. Lots of stops for bathroom and to take pictures. I highly recommend.
Elizabeth AltmaierUnited States
Ahmed is an excellent guide. He was responsive to my interests, and also knew what I would want to see in the areas we visited. The riad where he arranged my stay in Chefchaouen was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about Moroccan history, current events, geography, and culture. The transportation by car was terrific, both the vehicle itself and our driver. I very much enjoyed our 2 days touring and recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Elizabeth for your nice review. I'm very glad that you enjoyed your time in Morocco. Looking forward to see you again in Morocco
Greg SarwaUnited States
Ahmed took care of us the way that the only thing to say is: Thank you, Ahmed! We had such a great time that we will be back to see the rest of Morocco, definitely! 5 stars for him doesn't do justice, it is simply not enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Greg , Thank you so much for your excellent review about my service during your trip in Morocco and happy that the trip meet your needs and your wishes, I hope to see you again and show you the rest and the best of my Morocco , Welcome.
Nadine HamiltonUnited States
Our tour guide Achmad was all I could have asked for and more. His warm, caring, and conscientious nature made us feel completely comfortable and able to fully immerse ourselves in the marvels of Morocco. What he shared of his culture and of himself made for an unforgettable experience that I'll cherish forever. We learned, we laughed, and we loved every minute of it. Saha Achmad!!!
Caleb FosterUnited States
Ahmed was an exceptional tour guide - very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He personalized the tour for what I was interested, which was exactly what I had hoped for. Over the two day tour we did a good amount of site seeing, hiking and visiting various areas in the High Atlas mountains and surrounding areas. I would highly recommend Ahmed to anyone looking for a great tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Caleb Thank you very much for getting time to write an excellent review about my service during your trip in Morocco and happy that the trip meet your needs and your wishes, I hope to see you again and show you the rest and the best of my country.
Enjoyable half day tour.
Ahmed was a wonderful guide and made our experience so memorable. He was very knowledgable about the country and its culture, and took the time to explain many things that we would have missed. Ahmed also catered the day to our interests and helped us organise a camel ride in the afternoon close to Ben. Would highly recommend organising this tour if you want to make the most out of your time in Morocco and explore the Atlas Mountains and beyond!
Martine Heyer BootPanama
Ahmed is a charming man He is extremely responsive via email He was our guide. We also had a driver, who was a good driver It is impressive to have a guide who has himself never traveled to grow to be a guide Ahmed is a berber and very proud to be so. I would heartily recommend ahmed as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martine , Thank you very much for your time to write your feedback about your trip with me in Morocco, and i hope to see you again and show you the rest and the best Of my country.
"It was an inspiring and fun experience to tour the South of Morocco with Ahmed and his driver Brahim, from Marakkesh to the beautiful sand dunes. A joy to be with, anticipating and satisfying every one of my wishes, making the whole adventure super comfortable despite the long distance traveled. They went far beyond my expectations in all respects, and I wholeheartedly give them my highest recommendation. I will certainly travel with them again when I have a chance to visit Morocco
