    This was a great tour; the guide, Ahmed Chaara, was the friendliest guide, and always had a smile on his face. He was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited, and gave us lots of insight into the history and/or culture of each of the stops/highlights on this tour. The driver, Rida, was equally as pleasant; he was always smiling, and I felt very safe while he was driving us. It is clear that both of them have been doing this for a long time, and both are very professional. What was also nice to see was how they got along so well with each other, their cameraderie, and friendly banter. They get along They are also amenable to going out of the way to accommodate us. For example, we became quite hungry halfway through the tour, and they dropped us off at a local restaurant that they had recommended (which turned out to be so tasty and delicious and at a great price) and came to pick us up and we resumed our tour. They were also on time in picking us up at the beginning of the day. Overall, this was a great tour and I highly suggest it. Thank you Ahmed Chaara and Rida!

    Best tour guide ever. The kindest, most enthusiastic man who is very knowledgeable about Tangier. He was flexible with some trouble with our ferry, booked a great restaurant, told us what was the best to order, and let us borrow cash from him to buy souvenirs and then pay him back later. HIGHLY recommend

    Our ferry from Tarifa Spain was an hour late but Hamid was still there waiting for us at the port with my name on a big sign as promised. He made us feel comfortable and welcomed all day. He gave us great insights into Moroccan culture and was very accommodating.The tour met and exceeded our expectations.Our pre-trip communication with Chaara from Upmarket was excellent. I would highly recommend Hamid to any other visitors!

    Since we had a morning tour of Tangier's Old Town through our cruise line, we wanted to see other highlights of Tangier. Our guide, Achmed, was very responsive to our request. We had a wonderful overview of other sections of the city and a panoramic drive along the coast, stopping at Cap Spartel and the Caves of Hercules, as well as an enjoyable stop to ride the camels and walk the beach along the Atlantic. The views of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic were beautiful, and Achmed was a very knowledgeable, personable and fun guide. Our whole group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed this tour and appreciated all of Achmed's efforts to make our stop in Tangier memorable. We all highly recommend this tour especially with Achmed. Thank you!

    Incredibly rich and varied experience. Ahmed the guide was beyond outstanding and was completely knowledgeable about the city and local environs of Tangiers. Cost was about 54 US. Identical trip with cruise line was 169.

    We have done a number of very good Viator tours but the private Tangier tour with Ahmed was by far the best. He was in touch with us the day before the tour to give us tips regarding the ferry to and from Tarifa and confirm our meeting point which was where the ferry docked. We enjoyed a drive with a very polite Mr. Mustafa down the coast with several stops the Hercules Grotto was amazing then did a walking tour of the city. Ahmed was very responsive to our interests and had a wealth of information about Tangier and Morocco. Very good tour of the Medina, Souks and Casbah, along with a tea break and perfect lunch spot with live entertainment. Ahmed's tour was well beyond our expectations. Too bad we did could not do more days with him in Morocco!

    Our guide Chaara Ahmed and driver Mustafa were excellent. We had several very enjoyable hours on our tour. This tour fit in perfectly with our limited stay in Tangier.

    Mohammed was a great guide and we had a fantastic day! You do have to walk a bit to get to the buses, and we weren't sure if we were going the right way at first. You have to walk through the ship area only NCL buses are allowed there, through the gates, up a flight of stairs, through the terminal building, and down another set of stairs. On the outside of this area you will find dozens of tour operators with signs. Once we got here, it was easy to find a sign with our name on it. We were then walked over to our clean and air conditioned mini bus that we would be using for the day. Our tour had 12 people, so it was a smaller group size which was nice. Mohammed was great at giving us the history of Tangier and Morocco and answering any questions we had. He also recommended an amazing place for us to have lunch. It was one of the best meals we had on the entire cruise! Since we chose to have lunch, we didn't get any free time in the market, so that was my only disappointment. I also wished that it was a little longer. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour!
