My wife and I had a wonderful tour of Tangier and Assilah with Hamid B. He met us at the Tarifa ferry and took us for a tour for 7 hours including lunch. Hamid is very knowledgeable not only about Morocco but was also able to connect Morocco to the rest of the Arab world, Europe and North America. We recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking a tour with me! It was nice to meet you both and I’m glad you enjoyed your visit to Asilah and Tangier.

Hamid made this a most wonderful experience. Due to an accident last year I was limited in my mobility. However, Hamid went out of his way to make this first visit to Tangier a trip not ever to forget and make it easy for me to get around. Hamid was very knowledgeable about the city and it's people. Which just made the city come alive for us. Hamid was very thoughtful and made this an awesome trip for us. We saw lots of the city.

The tour led by Hamid B. was the best I've experienced. He is an encyclopedia of knowledge on history, current events, customs, and traditions. He shared info about how local people live that you cannot find in tourist summaries. Hamid B. is well known in these communities, with many of the locals greeting him as he led us on a walking tour through residential areas and markets. Due to these relationships, he was able to bring us to places and show us things not accessible to an independent tourist. A++++

Hamid was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. I felt bad because he had to brave a very rainy day. His insight and engaging nature made the tour pleasurable. When I return to Morocco I will be looking for Hamid as my guide.

Hamid was extremely flexible with our booking and made us feel comfortable and secure. He quickly ascertained our interests and shaped the tour in response. He seemed to know the folks at every stop on our tour, so we always felt welcome. In particular he was very friendly with the proprietors in the market and we were offered samples of delicious food at every stop. Our driver was also very careful and safe. We didn't know what to expect in Tangier and Hamid showed us what a beautiful city it is!
Tim DriverUnited States
Hamid was an excellent tour guide. He took us to all the normal tourist spots and many other areas of the town that you would not normally experience. Hamid has lived there all his life and knows the town and people. Would have been 5 stars, but like most tours, you are taken to a few "selected" shops for shopping which were nice, but not in our interest area. One other plus with Hamid is that he allows you personal time during the tour.
Christopher BollingUnited States
Hamid is fantastic! Our in depth tour was fun, informative and eye-opening. Hamid and his driver, Chico, took us places we could have never reached on our own in a single day. He took care of us from 9am until he dropped us back at our ferry at 5:30pm to go back to Tarifa. And he made us want to come back to Morocco for a full vacation there. A high point of our trip to Andalucia!
Hamid was very kind,friendly and professional.We got to do all the things listed on the tour,which was great.He gave us tips in terms of restaurants and showed us the real Tangier including hidden spots.Even before the tour!Though I missed more historical facts in a more structured fashion,sometimes the things he was telling us had nothing to do with the tour and more with him bragging or wanting to know things about us.Which is ok, we felt lack of concentration
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize that my service did not satisfy your expectations. I set a high standard for the tours and I’m truly sorry to hear that standard was not met in your interaction with our business. Your satisfaction is my number one priority. Thank you, Hamid

Hamid is a great tour guide who put together a super tour. Our vehicle was comfortable and our driver experienced. We made it to the "Blue City" safely and securely. Hamid did a great job letting us know the history of the area and telling us about things we wouldn't have known otherwise. In Chefchaouen, he arranged for a local guide who also was outstanding. I can't say enough good things about Hamid and this tour. Highly recommend!!!
John SchupperUnited States
Hamid showed us the old and the new of Tangier in a very enjoyable way. He knows everyone in the city it seems and watching the interaction added to the joy of the day.

No words can describe how amazing this tour was. We are a family of 5 with 3 children aged 7-12, we were slightly hesitant but all the good reviews Hamid has swayed us and I'm so pleased it did! Hamid was all a tour guide should be and more, he made us feel welcome was so accommodating, helpful and informative and just brilliant with the kids. I can not recommend him highly enough. We went feeling a bit apprehensive but left falling in love with Morocco with memories we will all cherish forever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking with me! It was a pleasure to show you and your family around. I’m pleased to hear you enjoyed your time. Thank you for your recommendation. Come again soon
Roger BakerUnited States
Fantastic experience! As "advertised" we visited all the sights, but there was so much more to this day out Took the trip with my wife, 3 daughters and son. First and foremost, we all felt completely safe and confident with Hamid We met many people; Hamid appears to know everyone, and those he doesn't know approach him for help and advice We really "did Tangier" in our seven hours and have many memories and pictures to remind us We cannot recommend Hamid and his tour highly enough. Thank you Hamid

It is hard not to repeat all the other positive comments that have been written about Hamid. There were 9 in our group and we agreed that our day with Hamid was easily one of the highlights of our 17 day vacation. We only spent a day with him - but what a day! We felt like part of the inner circle of Tangier. Hamid knew everyone and everyone seemed happy to see him. We had a genuine Moroccan meal (one of the few good meals of our trip)Ha. Treat yourself -this guy is the real thing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking your tour of Tangier with me! I had a great time with your group and I’m so glad your trip to Tangier was the highlight. I’m glad you felt like you were in the inner circle of Tangier. Thank you for recommending me and I hope to see your group again.
I can highly recommend the Tangier Walking Tour with Hamid B. Great organization up front. An authentic insight into Tangier & its history. Got to see places we wouldn't have found & inside a friend's riad in the Kasbah with awesome views. All four of us Australians really enjoyed it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking your walking tour with me! It was a pleasure to show you guys around my city. I’m pleased to hear you enjoyed the tour and thank you for recommending me.

Hamid was personable and resourceful. While we had a plan for the day, Hamid was able to make some adjustments and called in people quickly according to our interest. The day before our tour we travelled 4 hrs from Seville to Tarifa to catch the ferry over to Tangier. When we got to Tarifa, we found out the ferry was not running due to rough sea. Hamid was extremely responsive and helped us arrange a different route and transportation. This was above his tour duty. We highly recommend Hamid as a guide
Sherryl AltadonnaUnited States
Hamid was knowledgeable about Tangier. Took us to many views of Mediterranean, Atlantic Gibraltar and Spain.The views were beautiful. Then to a walking tour of Old Town. And a fantastic lunch. Way too much food. Highly recommend.

Great private tour. Hamid
We really enjoyed Hamid's tour. He seems to know everyone. His timing was perfect (very little traffic) to all the places we visited. He's very knowledgeable and connected with the kids immediately. Thank you for making this a memorable tour!
John BlairUnited States
My wife and I toured with Hamid in May 2019 and we cannot tell you how fantastic he was. He and our driver, Mustafa, conducted a private tour that encompassed not only a diverse view of Tangier, but was tailored to our personal requests. Hamid was absolutely pleasant and as we walked through the Medina, it was as if he knew everyone and they knew him. We were extremely comfortable with him and enjoyed his insight and sense of humor. In fact, would say he "made" our trip to Tangier. Strongly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking with me! It was a pleasure to show you and your wife around. I’m really pleased to hear you enjoyed your tour. Thank you for recommending me.

Hamid provided an extensive portrait of his native city. He is an excellent guide and good teacher. Our journey included a visit to Cap Spartel (where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea) and the cave of Hercules (the mythological saga competes with the human effort of the Berber people to mine limestone wheels from the cave walls for fabrication of millstones). We also visited the Kashbah, the old fortress, and entered Medina from the hilltop. Our day was fabulous; Hamid is warm and caring.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed my day with you. I’m so glad you visited my city and I was able to show you the history and culture. Thank you for your feedback.

Worth taking the trip to The Blue City. Hamid showed up with local driver Abu, who was an excellent driver and got us there safely. Hamid turned us over to a local guide in the Blue City who was also excellent. I wouldn't consider Hamid our private tour guide this day but he organized everything for us, offered us a mint tea, made sure everything went smoothly and we had a beautiful day. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Barbra, I’m so glad you enjoyed your time in Chefchouan and that everything went smoothly. It was my pleasure. Thank you for the feedback.
Barbara WolfUnited States

Our tour of Tangier was just perfect. I travel with an electric scooter and Hamid and I discussed this by email. He extended every effort to be sure I didn't have any steps for the entire trip. We could not have had a more perfect day in this beautiful city. Hamid is from Tangier and is extremely knowledgeable about his city. Our pictures are great because as Hamid says "He takes great pictures." I would highly recommend Hamid to anyone visiting Tangier.
Two couples arranged for a 1-day Cultural Tour of Tangier with guide Hamid. We were met promptly at the port by our guide and driver. We visited pre-arranged sites, and a couple which Hamid went out of his way to accommodate us. He allowed us to move around at our pace. He was efficient, very informative, and encouraging-even when one of us was reluctant to get on a camel. Many thanks to Hamid and the very efficient Tours by Locals.

We had a very enjoyable day touring the amazing city of Tangier. We saw such an interesting range of places in the area and enjoyed Ben commentary and the way he customized the tour for our needs. We would happily return to this city and use Tours by Locals again. Thank you!
