Registered on March 06, 2018

I am a graduate of Mohammed v University of Rabat with a BA in English Studies. I am currently working for Microsoft as a customer service representative, on top of that I am working with a local NGO called Rabat sale Memoir, my role in this NGO is to educate schoolchildren about the importance of their tangible and intangible heritage. Besides that, I am working with American students studying Arabic as a translator and interpreter (I help them with interviews on the street or with local organizations and authorities). I also had the opportunity to work on an Italian TV show called Peckino Express, which was filmed in Morocco (my role was to accompany the film crew, talk to local authorities and make sure everything is okay). This experience allowed me to travel a lot in Morocco and enrich my knowledge about different parts of Morocco.

Tour description

Morocco has so much to offer.  The Moroccan experience is like no other.  If you are fortunate enough to visit Morocco and get to engage with the people, you’re soul will automatically become richer, wiser and fulfilled.
You will have the opportunity to visit the old part of the capital of Morocco by night and discover it from a local perspective. I will make sure you have a historical and cultural immersion. we can also cross the river to the neighboring city of sale and take a walk along its marina. I will take you to the best local restaurant and the best places where locals usually go. the tour can be customized based on your needs and how much time you have and usually, it's very flexible since I always make sure to keep the number of attendees less than five people.
The tour will start from bank al maghrib on Mohammed V avenue. we will head to the Hassan Tower (We will be able to have a nice view of the neighboring city of sale, the marina and the new opera house)after that we will walk along the marina of Rabat in the direction of the kasbah of loudaya .
Our next stop will be the Medina and its traditional shops which sell local products. We will also get the chance to see where the locals usually do their shopping and we can take some time to stop in a local coffee shop where the locals usually hangout.
This is an opportunity to ask as many questions as you like about the daily life of locals and the Moroccan traditions and culture .

The Tour is only offered in English.

Youssef is awesome! His tour was one of the best walking tours I've been on. He was personable, answered a lot of questions, and showed us so much. I felt like I got great insight into Rabat and Morocco. He has a real joy in giving tours and sharing his city, country and culture with others. You should absolutely enjoy an evening walk about Rabat with Youssef.

I had such a great time! The guide really personalised the tour to our own interests (and helped me shop for something i really needed), allowed us to taste local foods, and even ensured we got back to our accommodation safely! As a solo female traveller, I felt incredibly safe!

We really loved this night tour, the experience at night is very different from the usual daytime circuit, it has a special charm. Youssef is very kind, friendly and professional, he knows Rabat very well and took us to unique places, he gave us very good tips and unconventional information. In the medina he even helped us buy some products, where’s best, what prices are good, etc. Very good English. We totally recommend it!

We really loved the tour with Youssef, my boyfriend even did it twice when we had guests. As a local, he knows the classical historical facts but in addition, has a lot of knowledge about daily life in Rabat and Sale. I especially loved the part into the Jewish part of the medina. We were not brought to any shops to buy stuff, and he modified the tour to our requests. 100 % recommend to get a first few of Rabat.
