Ibrahim is without a doubt the best choice we made on this trip. He is an excellent and safe driver who knows all the roads of this country like the back of his hand. He organized for us a full, interesting, and special route that started in Marrakech and went all over Morocco through the Sahara, Fez, Chefchaouen, Rabat, Casablanca, Asilah, and Essaouira. Everything we wanted. He was attentive and patient and sensitive to all our requests. Beyond Ibrahim’s professionalism, and the sense of security he gave everywhere we went (as two women traveling alone in such a country this is very important), We discovered a sensitive and curious person who also became a friend.
I wholeheartedly recommend this lovely person; I could not have seen this trip without him.
Ibrahim you are the best
