    Omar is amazing! Funny, doesn't talk your ear off, and can help you see and get where you need to go. I'd go on a short excursion or ten day long trek with him anytime. He's great! If you're in need of a guide who will show you a nice trip (read without trying to see you

    The tour with Youssef and Hassan was great. We ate in local restaurants, listened to musicians and discovered Essouira in a nice and relaxed way. I had a lot of fun and would truly recommend it.
