Best Tour and Guide Ever
, Dec 2019
Ahmed is an amazing tour guide. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about the city, he is passionate, kind, and thoughtful. We learned a lot from him on our tour. Furthermore, he went above and beyond to help us book train tickets and a driver for another trip that we had planned. Ahmed is THE guide to go with. His English and his French are perfect. I wish every tour guide could be more like Ahmed. I am very thankful to him and Viator for helping us make so much of our vacation. The driver Ridwan was also amazing! If you are looking for a tour of Tangier, look no further. You will not regret going with this tour.
Great tour guides with opportunities to see highlights of the city
, Nov 2019
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!
A Wonderful Day in Tangier!
, Apr 2019
Hamid, our tour guide and his driver, were AWESOME! Very friendly and knowledgeable. From picking us up to dropping us off at the port entrance, showing us the various sites, camel ride, delicious Moroccan lunch, along with a shopping experience and tour through the Kasbah along with his wealth of knowledge. We HIGHLY recommend as our experience is something we continue to talk about. Thank you Hamid! Hope to see you again!

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
Great day in Tangier
, Jul 2018
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!

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!

The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Mostafa, was extremely knowledgeable and seemed to know almost every single person in Tangier. People were constantly stopping him to shake hands or hug him. He was able to get us into a few exclusive areas through his contacts. We had a very complete tour of Tangier including a camel ride, tour of the casbah, Cape Spartel, back street souks, caves of Hercules etc. with a running commentary throughout with fascinating facts and figures Mostafa recommended a wonderful restaurant for lunch and a spice store where we got some saffron etc. We also saw a rug merchant but didn't buy anything.

So pleased we went with Chaara Ahmed and his colleague Mohammed Ali instead of being herded like sheep on the cruise ship tour. We visited the same places but had more time to enjoy the experience - especially in the Medina - more on that later. One thing to note - you need to walk along the pier and through the cruise port building before you can meet Ahmed. Only a few private companies appear to have access to the pier. Thankfully they directed us to where Ahmed was waiting. The other family in our group had difficulty finding us so Ahmed sent us on ahead with Ali. We all met up at the Moroccan lunch we had added into the tour - delicious and much more than we needed to eat. Ali was an informative guide and we enjoyed the visit to Cap Spartel and the Cave of Hercules. A highlight was a camel ride along the beach 10E extra / person. Expensive for a fifteen minute ride along the sand. However, much more fun than sitting on a camel in a parking lot for a photo op! Glad we did it. Delighted we were with Ali for our walk through the market. We love markets and the one in Tangier was an adventure of fragrance and produce. Ali seemed to know everyone and we chatted with vendors at many of the food stalls. Unlike others on the cruise ship we were not swarmed by anxious vendors. Quite a relief as we had our young teen daughter with us. We felt quite safe at all times. We did end up at the inevitable carpet showroom and Ali disappeared to pray while we had a welcome rest and refreshment. The salesman was proficient but not overbearing - we did buy a carpet but they happened to have one that we were looking for! Later in the day when other vendors tried to show us their wares, we only had to say no and Ali shepherded us on to the next site. We were under no illusions that many of the people greeting him in the market were lobbying to be included on tomorrows tour. However, everyone was charming and we never felt ambushed. Overall, we had a fabulous time in Tangier and made it back to the ship on time. When comparing excursions with other cruise guests we were very pleased we chose to go with Ahmed and Viator.

Although I was only in this city for a few hours, my tour guide made it the best experience for such a short trip. The food, tea and views were excellent and I felt very comfortable with my guide. His kindness and flexibility made my experience so much better!

We were met at the cruise terminal by Ahmed and our guide Mohammed, we were greeted warmly and escorted to a private taxi. Mohammed was an excellent guide, he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We visited a variety of interesting places and people. Everyone knew Mohammed and were very friendly. We were able to end the tour at our convenience, we were then taken back to the terminal building. Our excursion was interesting, relaxed and informative. I would reccommend this excursion.
A éviter possible escroquerie
, Jun 2022
Une véritable escroquerie . L excursion n a jamais eu lieu, le guide ne s est pas presenté, nous avons contacté la compagnie viator qui ne nous a pas répondu et le montant de l excursion a été prélevé et n a toujours pas été remboursé.
